With one tap of the accelerator, the Ferrari 360 Modena's purr crescendos to a growl, a display of the power contained in its 400-horsepower V8 engine. Beyond the windshield, Miami's vibrant thoroughfares, from Ocean Drive's art-deco district to Collins Avenue's bustling nightclubs, wait to be explored from the cockpit of one of the world's most celebrated performance vehicles. And the keys to this sleek ride are delivered upon check-in at the Mayfair Hotel & Spa, where a private suite lowers a driver's adrenaline levels with relaxing amenities.
The Ferrari 360 Modena combines the renowned racing heritage of its maker with sports-car exoticism. Although the vehicle's top speed of 184 mph is impossible on public roads, drivers can still experience the car's impeccable aerodynamics and potent acceleration. Ferrari's famous prancing-horse logo rests above the rear fender, although it does insist on eating only organic oats for its dinner.
Back at Mayfair's Coconut Grove enclave, a spacious art-nouveau lobby with Tiffany stained-glass windows welcomes guests after a night of cruising. Within some Mayfair suites, the hand-carved mahogany headboard of a king bed draped in egyptian-cotton sheets is elegantly colored with dark-wood accents. A tropical-foliage-screened private balcony houses a Japanese soaking tub, which an attendant will fill, heat, and infuse with lavender bath salts (a $30 additional fee). Mayfair's Rooftop Cabana Club serves cocktails next to poolside cabanas complemented by panoramic views of Biscayne Bay.
Miami's Coconut Grove: Fashionable Waterfront a Short Drive from South Beach
Although the nightlife in Coconut Grove may be tamer than in nearby South Beach, a picturesque waterfront and Caribbean and Latin restaurants easily fill evening itineraries. A short way up the shoreline, the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens preserves the magnificent winter residence of industrialist James Deering, and across the northern causeways, Miami Beach brims with neon lights, palm trees, and upscale nightclubs.
