Aspen, Colorado is one of the most beautiful places in all of America. With scenic views and some of the best skiing in the country, Aspen is flocked with tourists and vacationers every year. One of the staples of Aspen’s tourist scene is the Limelight Hotel, which has been around since before the 1950’s and is now one of the best hotels in Aspen. One of the more interesting amenities the Limelight now offers is an Audi Q7.
As part of an official partnership between the hotel and Audi, the Limelight offers customers the opportunity to reserve a brand-new Audi Q7 when they’d like and they can drive it for two hours or less. That allows customers to drive throughout the town, visit some scenery and then make it back in time. It’s a great way to allow customer to move around without having to rent a car.
The new Audi Q7 is one of the brand’s best luxury cars and its best SUV. We don’t know exactly which spec the Limelight Audi Q7s are, but we’re expecting them to be the main volume seller — the Q7 3.0T. If that’s the case, it will sport a 3.0 liter supercharged V6 engine that makes 333 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. That engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic and proper Quattro all-wheel drive. We doubt it will come with the 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder option, as that’s not very luxurious and unfitting of such a nice hotel.
Inside, the Audi Q7’s features one of the nicest cabins at its price point, with rich materials, superb build quality and some of the best technology in the business. It also sports Audi’s Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster, albeit the first-gen setup and not the newest one used in the Audi A8 and A7. Still, it’s brilliant and will certainly wow some of Limelight’s customers.
While not a revolutionary idea, as many high-end hotels offer car loaners, it’s a nice feature for customers of one of Aspens nicer hotels.
