Just spent 3 weeks in St. Petersburg and Florence on a work trip.
I was pleasantly surprised that my hotel in St. Petersburg
used a 5 GT for guests ....nice...I felt I was home.

ITALY
and... while my Italian partners called the GT a "Bella Macchina!"
in much of Italy, it can be a tight squeeze--

I was wondering where you we're ;) welcome back. Oh and BTW: the pics - as magnumforce stated are beautiful.

Those hotels stole my idea. If I was an executive for a high end "US" hotel chain i.e. starwood (W, St. Regis, etc) I would offer GT's as courtesy cars for elite members:)

I remember while staying at the "W" New York a few years back when the VW Phaeton was introduced, the hotel had a few available for client drives. I got a chance to drive a W12 around New York, before driving it to the airport. Nice car and smart marketing tool, unfortunately the Phaeton was too expensive for our market.

The GT could likely benefit from this type of exposure - with the right market demographic. :thumbup:
