One Year. A milestone in any relationship. For Fast Lane Drive and O’Gara La Jolla it has been one year of amazing roads, incredible cars, and fantastic friendships. To celebrate, Fast Lane decided to pull out all the stops, and do not just a drive, but a full luxury experience. Destination, Las Vegas. 25 cars, 3 days, 60 participants, and one hell of a good time.
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. Most dealers would simply stage the cars in the showroom and do short drives in the surrounding area. We wanted to do something special and decided to aim a little higher. A few hundred feet higher. The Fly and Drive was born.
A few months back we at O’Gara La Jolla wanted to make a change. We wanted to bring in a fresh new digital marketing team to shake things up and get our name out there. Enter CNG Digital Marketing. After months of incredible results and what has become an amazing partnership, they approached us about participating in a passion project. CEO Clement Connor and Vice-President Diaa El All had created a private car/rally club. It consisted of like-minded young professionals with a passion for cars. It was called it Fast Lane Drive. They asked us if we’d like to join. We asked how soon we could start.

For the last two months, we at O’Gara La Jolla have been trying to solve a problem. How do you top the Inaugural San Diego GT? We unveiled 5 hypercars in dramatic fashion and had a strong showing of supercars and other exotics. Well, what you see below is how we maintained San Diego GT’s reputation as being one of Southern California’s premier Cars and Coffee events.
Earlier this year, the O’Gara Beverly Hills team created Sunset GT and set the gold standard for what a cars and coffee event could be. They brought out the most exclusive cars and did it on a scale that no one had ever seen. Month after month of successful shows gave us here in San Diego the confidence that we could do the same for our car community. So last Saturday, after weeks and weeks of planning, O’Gara Coach La Jolla held its first ever San Diego GT, and it went better than any of us ever imagined.
Huracan Performante | A Lamborghini Esperienza
The Huracan Performante, one of the quickest cars to leave the legendary Lamborghini factory. The coveted car shocked the world when it laid down the fastest lap time ever for a production car around the Nurburgring. Our clients have been chomping at the bit to get behind the wheel of this future classic, and last Sunday, they did.
The Phantom. The flagship sedan in the iconic Rolls-Royce line up. This car has become the pinnacle of luxury and class. For 13 years the Phantom VII has hosted everyone from entertainment mega stars to royal families. So how do you improve upon that? How do you take arguably one of the most recognized cars in the world, and make it better? Rolls-Royce had the answer.
In the automotive industry, most new car reveals are pretty straight forward and similar. Cue the music, pull back the cloth, and talk about the car while guests watch through their cell phone screens. This time around Bentley wanted to do something different. Show off the Continental GT in a creative way, and making the experience very exclusive. These are the highlights from the special Bentley La Jolla event.
