If there is a name synonymous with the future of the premium automobile, it is Elon Musk and his signature Tesla Motors line of electric cars. This is an opportunity to enjoy that future now, starting with a private prerelease viewing of the Tesla Model 3 prototype. To ensure privacy (and possibly thwart corporate espionage!), this will take place at a secret and undisclosed location.
In addition, you will participate in what might be the ultimate in test drives when you take possession of a Tesla Model X automobile for a full 48 hours. The car will personally be delivered to the location of your choice within the Bay Area, and you will be given a thorough vehicle orientation in order to get as much out of the experience as possible. Your first stop is the Fremont Tesla factory for a guided tour — where you will observe the exceptionally precise technological process that goes into producing the cars — complete with a gourmet lunch for 4.
You will then hit the open road for a two-night cruise along the Pacific Coast Highway. Along the way, you’ll enjoy one night at the Ritz Carlton in beautiful Half Moon Bay. You are invited to set up your tee for unlimited play at the resort’s two internationally celebrated golf courses. As an elegant segue, you will then take your table for dinner at Navio’s. There, you and your companions will enjoy ocean-inspired cuisine paired with historic vintages from Château Mouton Rothschild, with the surf of the mighty Pacific just feet away.
The next morning, you will cruise leisurely along the scenic Pacific Coast Highway to Carmel Valley Ranch, a 500-acre luxury playground. That evening, Executive Chef Tim Woods will host your party for an “Eat like a Chef” dinner, featuring fresh seafood from the waters of the Monterey Coast and vegetables from the Ranch’s organic gardens.
And finally, as an extra-added bonus, you will be gifted an electric Tesla Model S for Kids by Radio Flyer that comes equipped with high-end features to re-create the ultimate Tesla Motors experience for kids of every age.
