Take a Ride in the World's Fastest Hybrid Car, Thanks To SBE Hotel Group
If you've got the need for speed, you'll have extra incentive to stay at the SLS Beverly Hills and The Redbury. The hotels, which are part of SBE Hotel Group, now have speedy new BMWs that are available for guest use.
SBE is partnering with BMW to offer guests the company's latest rides. At SLS Beverly Hills, you can take a seat in an ActiveHybrid 750Li (see above photo), which is considered the world's fastest, street-legal hybrid on the market. So at least you'll be green while speeding down Rodeo Drive to do some shopping. At the Redbury, you can choose from the ActiveHybrid 750Li or the 550i Gran Turismo. Talk about tricked out!
Unfortunately, you can't actually get behind the wheel of these vehicles. The hotels offer complimentary chauffeur service in the brand-new cars.
However, both hotels will offer additional perks if you are a new BMW owner in Southern California. You will automatically be eligible to participate in SBE’s exclusive loyalty program, sbePreferred Partners. In addition to customized experiences at SBE venues such as Cleo, XIV by Michael Mina, Katsuya by Starck, Hyde Lounge and The Abbey Food & Bar, sbePreferred Partners also get access to unique offers, special room rates and members-only events. But really, we just want to check out how fast that hybrid can go.
