For the first time in its history, last March, the Michelin Guide was decentralized for the launch of its 2022 edition, choosing Charente and more specifically Cognac to invite chefs to this unprecedented ceremony.
An opportunity to explore a very beautiful region rich in heritage, history, gastronomy and, of course, cognac. Even if it means visiting the area, you can do it in an extraordinary car! From Puteaux, Lamborghini’s headquarters in Paris, you have 486 kilometers to reach the Chais Monnet, a very new five-star hotel that welcomes chefs from all over France.Many are hopeful. At the start of the capital, the weather was splendid behind the wheel of this extraordinary SUV called the Urus, or rather the latest version of the “Pearl Capsule Edition”. This “capsule” (option is €16,800) contains: In the tradition of the house, with 4 coats of paint, three glossy mother-of-pearl colors, Inti Yellow, Borealis Orange and Mantis Green, are combined with a glossy black roof, rear diffuser, spoiler lip and other details.
To put it mildly, we set off in a beautiful green. If the two-tone exterior is particularly daring with its 23-inch wheels and four matte gray sports exhaust pipes, so is the refined interior, taking the same color with a special two-tone combination with stitching characteristics. , Carbon fiber and black anodized aluminum details are added to the seats, which are embroidered with a hexagonal pattern and the famous bull logo. Exclusive to this Pearl capsule, the all-electric seat (optional) is covered in perforated alcantara for maximum comfort. And there was comfort for this journey.
Don’t be put off by the sirens to limit the sportiness of the company’s five-passenger “engine” to the muffled sound of its gorgeous 650 hp twin-turbo V8. (0 to 100 3.6 s, 305 km/h) is there to remind us of the sport profession. However, with impressive ground clearance, you can easily follow a few forest trails, especially with all-wheel drive… or pass without incident the untimely speed bumps that dot so many roads. With its two configurable screens (10.1″ / 8.6″), the infotainment system showcases its talents in all areas with outstanding sound, Maps displayed in 3D in the navigation, not to mention the reminder on the head-up display, air conditioning by zone, panoramic roof. Enhanced driving with a highly responsive 8-speed gearbox, it is a real pleasure.
All that remains is to choose your driving mode: road, sport, track and a special “snow”. Being in Cognac and not visiting many Cognac houses – without tasting it of course! – it would certainly be a shameespecially with such a chest, From 616 to 1596 dm3, with folding seats and a ski hatch: this will be for next winter and will arrive in Courchevel. In the meantime, we go to wine tourism in the plush comfort of our Lambo. The oldest house in Cognac (1715), Courvoisier, Frapin, Hennessy, Meukov, Deau, De Luze, winding paths through the vines, all this is an invitation to never let go of the wheel.
If the base price was €188,923, it was €241,426 with the vehicle options we tested. Thanks to Lamborghini for these few exceptional days.
