There are so many ways to celebrate a one week summer vacation: hit the beach, travel to another country, camping, staycations… But if you’re a car enthusiast, well, there’s another way to unwind! Join the goldRush Rally and take a supercar of your choice on an epic seven day journey across the US. In its 9th year the goldRush Rally invited 100 hyper/super/exotic cars for a VIP treatment like none other. For a team of two, participation for the entire route costs $16K which covers five star hotels, dining at the best restaurants in each city and partying the night away at the most exclusive nightclubs. However, the main attraction is the cars and they do not disappoint.
Running alongside each other, are several $3M Bugatti Veyrons, including one Super Sport Veyron nicknamed ‘Pur Blanc,’ Porsches, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, numerous Rolls-Royces and a one of a kind behemoth Mercedes 6×6 SUV – to name a few. Bystanders who flock by the thousands to the rally route will not only catch glimpses of these rare autos, but be treated to the site of them in some very unique wraps specifically for the rally.
But gR is not all show! Participants raise money for the Wounded Warrior project and the Taylor Lynn foundation benefiting children in need, allowing them to participate in school events they would not have access to otherwise.
The goldRushers take off from Beverly Hills on Saturday May 13th making their way north into Washington and Wyoming before heading back south to Vegas on May 20th. ‘Pur Blanc,’ owner Ben Chen commented, “cars are meant to be driven, and the goldRush is the perfect annual event to stretch their legs.” We agree. GYSOT!
