O’Gara San Diego recognizes the challenging times that everyone is experiencing due to COVID-19. In an effort to support our community and give back, we are proud to announce our partnership benefiting Serving Seniors

Serving Seniors was created by a group of compassionate volunteers who were concerned about our most fragile community members suffering in silence from malnutrition and the many other health problems. They prepare and deliver healthy meals to feed people impacted by serious illness, bringing comfort and hope every day. 

At times like these, it is important to be united and support one another. Please join us in an effort to provide relief during the COVID-19 crisis impacting the community and globe. Make a difference by clicking here to donate. Share your support by spreading the word on social media and encourage others to do the same. 

Are you looking forward to giving back? If so, we would love to know ways that you’ve been supporting the community and/or which charities you are donating to at this time.

Upon completion of all said repairs and approval from designated technician and Service Writer, your vehicle is sent with great care to its final stage where it will receive an extensive clean wash and wipe down from bumper to bumper. Our commitment to you is to have the vehicle clean and fully sanitized before it is delivered back to you. 

Delivery of your vehicle includes a final wipe down of the steering wheel and handle to rid of any unwanted germs.

We aim to exceed your expectations of our service department and while we are all experiencing circumstances out of our control, we thank and appreciate your continuous and loyal business with us.

Bugatti Blazes Past 300mph, The First To Ever Do It.

By jbolanos | Posted in Bugatti on Thursday, September 26th, 2019 at 10:52 PM

The hypercar race war to break the 300mph barrier is over. In a six month collective effort between Bugatti engineers, Dallara and Michelin the Bugatti Chiron has been announced as the first manufacturer vehicle to break the 300-mile-an-hour barrier.Bugatti Chiron 300mph

The highlights of the menacing Chiron created features a long tail which enhances overall aerodynamics and lowers drag, a boost to 1578 horsepower and upgraded Michelin tires to handle the increased road stress. Measuring 9.84 inches longer than a stock Chiron, stripped out interior and lower ride height for drag purposes the upgraded Chiron was in true race mode to battle the task at Ehra-Lessien test track, Germany.

Driven by the well accoladed Andy Wallace the Bugatti was in good hands, despite being described as, “Being quite difficult to do” by the driver himself. “Now Bugatti was the first to exceed the 300-mile-per-hour mark. An incredible achievement that shows what the men and women of Bugatti are capable of. But this was the last time for us. Bugatti was the first to exceed 300-mile-per-hour – its name will go down in the history books and it will stay that way forever” added Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti.

McLaren 600 LT MSO Blue Roof Scoop

Not all 600LTs are created equal. The carbon roof scoop or snorkel has been an iconic feature on McLarens, dating back to the original McLaren F1. Functionally, the roof scoop provides increased cooling to the 592hp mid-engine V8. There is also an added sense of aural drama when you drive a car with a roof scoop. As you run through the gears on the 7sp dual-clutch transmission, you can hear the air “whooshing” directly over your head into the engine bay. It’s truly a sound you’ll never get tired of hearing.

McLaren 600 LT MSO Red Roof Scoop

Did we mention that it looks freaking awesome?! You’ll be the envy of any track day or car show when you show up with a roof scoop McLaren. Very few 600LTs were specced with this ultra-desirable option, and both of these cars are currently available for sale at McLaren San Diego. Finished in Silica White with red-tinted exterior carbon fiber. MSO bespoke interior with Senna seats and red Alcantara inserts. Headrests with bespoke MSO embroidery. Color-matched keys.

With the new Bentley Continental GT on the way later this year, we at O’Gara La Jolla were given the opportunity to showcase the grand tourer to our clients.
