About this Night At

Audi partnered with Airbnb to generate buzz for the new R8, spark their fans' imaginations, and take some lucky guests on the ride of a lifetime.

Guests stayed in style and seclusion in Death Valley—and tested the limits of speed on the ultimate proving ground. The TV spot premiered during the Emmys® and gave the campaign an immediate boost: social media was set ablaze and the video spot was viewed by over 4 million people on YouTube. It’s no surprise that with this fast crowd, the rental was booked within 5 seconds each time it became available.
