A Need for Speed

The Dovetail Agency

Car ImageLondon: an international hub home to an abundance of cuisine, iconic cityscapes and an unrivalled atmosphere. Between the standstill traffic and congested underground enters Zero Zero One Travel: the new boutique travel agency with a concierge twist.

From years of experience weaving through commuting traffic, supercar enthusiast and founder Albert Oliver saw an opportunity for fellow driving junkies to escape the city and embrace the speeds of the supercar.

Drawing inspiration from iconic routes around the globe, Zero Zero One Travel revealed five driving itineraries in which the car was the star of the show, rather than simply the means of getting to a destination. Hosted at The Bentley Showroom in Mayfair, the launch event welcomed key media, clients and VIP guests with a keen interest in driving tours.  Canapes and cocktails were carefully selected to reflect local ingredients found in each of the five regions, and prizes were announced throughout the night. Winners enjoyed a G48 Hour Tote Bag from British brand Gladstone London, a money-can’t-buy Bentley factory tour as well as a getaway in the Cotswolds at Dormy house complete with a Bentley supercar for the weekend.
