Immediately embarking on the road to Mont Ventoux—the most grueling climbing stage in the Tour de France—the LC 500h travels 1,600 meters up the slope until the peak finally comes into view. Thanks to the power assist feature of the V6 3.5L multistage hybrid electric, maneuvering the car along this winding road is stress-free, allowing us to soak in the scenery.
Our first stop is Michelin three-starred restaurant Christophe Bacquié, a restaurant that elevates French cuisine to the realm of art and provides unforgettable experiences for customers. The restaurant is located near Circuit Paul Ricard, making it the perfect dining spot before or after a race. It specializes in food that allows diners to experience the rich flavors of Provence’s natural environment. The menu consists of fresh, succulent seafood caught in the Mediterranean and dishes that incorporate vegetables nourished by Provence’s terroir.
The LC 500h, the flagship coupe with a design both elegant and evocative, also leaves an indelible impression – its high-performance capabilities with the multistage hybrid electric system leaves drivers exhilarated.
