Desert house in Audi R8 Emmy ad for rent on Airbnb

Audi is one of the sponsors for the 2016 Emmy Awards, something it’s done before. The ad it’s made for this year’s Emmys depicts a family living in a house in the middle of the Death Valley desert in Nevada¬†just so they can drive their brand-new Audi R8 V10 Plus as fast and for as long as they’d like. For instance, if they run out of coffee, it’s a long and fast run to the nearest shop.


When the husband finally gets to the tiny little coffee shed, he realizes he forgot his wallet. That should be a long drive back, but fortunately his wife arrives in the second R8 with it. It’s remarkable that they’re able to find fuel and a place to wash the two R8s out there, but if there’s a will, there’s a way, I suppose.

But more importantly, if this lifestyle seems appealing to you, you can sample it for a day or two. Audi is renting this Death Valley home on Airbnb for a not so insignificant $610 per night. However, you do get quite a lot for your money. It does indeed come with an Audi R8 V10 Plus in the garage, which is worth the money in itself. But it also comes with a personal chef to make all of your meals.


The house isn’t so bad, either. A 1,200 square-foot home boasts a 900 square-foot deck with suck-in hot tub. Admittedly, it’s in the middle of the desert, so it’s not exactly an all-inclusive resort. But it is pretty damn nice and it comes with an Audi R8 for your time there.
