A Look at This Year’s Most Coveted Auction Item at the Naples Winter Wine Fest


The Naples Winter Wine Festival is back again and is promising the most enviable auction items to date. Aside from the weekend full of gourmet food from the world’s biggest names in the culinary industry and wine from the best global vintners, yet another reason to head up to Naples for this extraordinary weekend is to get your hands on some of these one-of-a-kind auction items. Highlights include a private yacht cruise and visit to Havana, Cuba; a stay at a celebrity favorite Yellowstone Club; a 10-day trip through India that includes dinner with the Royal Family of Jaipur; and the stunning Audi MY18 R8 Spyder. However, our top pick among this high-rolling list of prizes is certainly the 2017 McLaren 570 GT. 

Here’s why:

  1. You can’t beat the speed. Reaching a top speed of 204 mph in combination with its modern aerodynamic design, you’re sure to blow away anyone who tries to race you, as it moves from sports car to supercar within a mere seconds.
  2. Your cruise will be smooth and safe thanks to the unique Pirelli P ZeroTM tires that were designed specifically for the car, with innovative technology that reduces in-cabin road noise by up to three decibels.
  3. It’s a beauty both inside and out. The clean Silica White exterior with GT cast silver wheels and Iron Silver brake clippers are sure to catch all the eyes of onlookers, while the inside is perfectly balanced by the Saddle Tan interior, giving it a sexy, sophisticated look.
  4. It’s cool. Aside from the actual coolness of the car itself, it physically will be the coolest car around in the summertime heat with its increased glass area of the Panoramic roof, which combines with an enhanced dual-zone air conditioning system to keep the atmosphere perfect.
  5. It’s one-of-a-kind. Inside the car will also be a customized plaque commemorating the Festival to always remind you of your weekend getaway to Naples.

And if those reasons aren’t enough, remember the most important: your purchase is giving back to someone else! All of the money raised during the live auction directly benefits the Naples Children & Education Foundation, which is the largest funder of children’s social services in the community. Since its inception, the festival has raised more than $146 million in funds, bettering the lives of more than 200,000 children.
