Our clients enjoyed the luxurious look, style, interior and monstrous power of a McLaren driving experience upon arrival. The McLaren is an exotic among exotics -- it doesn't show up on the streets with regularity. One of our clients described the drive as "a religious experience," he went on to say:
"The supercar isn't merely a product of raw power and the stunning looks: driving a car like this connects you to the machinery and the road in a way that other cars do not.
The McLaren made me feel like I was a quicker, more responsive, and more capable of a driver. Let me be clear, that effect is mostly psychological
— a vehicle with this amount of power delivered to the rear wheels and a top speed north of 200 mph can both humble you and end your life —
but it’s a euphoria that I don’t think you can get from any lesser car."
After the drive, our clients were treated to a rare tasting of Louis XIII Cognac. Each decanter takes four generations of cellar masters over 100 years to craft. David Chhay, our Louis XIII ambassador said:
"It's one century in a glass."
We also showcased the luxury watch brand that has taken watchmaking to a new extreme -- Richard Mille -- while our clients mingled with Anton Rubianto, the Director of Richard Mille USA.
Where other modern-era brands aspire to antiquity, Mille does not pretend to have ancient roots; he did not buy an old name – he uses his own.
Richard Mille breaks all the rules.
Chicago's finest cigar shop, Biggs Cigar Mansion, stopped by & treated our clients to cigars on our Geneva Seal terrace. It was a wonderful night full of life's small luxuries and we couldn't be prouder to treat our clients -- who have turned into family -- to a night they will never forget.
