Paris Hotel Provides Guests With Their Own Jaguar E-Type
Checking into the ultra exclusive and very expensive Hôtel de Crillon in Paris, one would expect certain amenities and luxuries, as one does (who doesn’t love a mint on their pillow?). But now there is a service of particular interest to those classic car aficionados with means.
The hotel’s Va Va Vroom package includes a two-night stay in the signature Duc de Crillon Suite and a private dinner by executive chef Boris Campanella; all very well and good, but best of all is a vintage Jaguar E-Type with a custom interior by French designer Tristan Auer to park in your very own driveway.
Guests will take a “private inspiration tour” of Paris before meeting privately with Auer in his studio to collaborate on the bespoke interior of the E-Type. After the car is completed, guests will also receive an invitation to the Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille show in Paris to have their Jag judged (wonder if that includes an original toolkit too…).
Of course, if you have to ask about the price, you can’t afford it – but we’ll tell you anyway that it starts at €255,500, or close to $290,000.
This is not the first car collaboration between the hotel and the designer; Auer also added his luxury touches to two 1973 Citroën DS sedans for the hotel’s limousine service – one of which will be whisking Va Va Vroom guests along in Paris. Auer also offers his “car tailoring” services to vintage automotive collectors.
