Turo Partners With Petersen Automotive Museum

Peer-to-peer carsharing service Turo has partnered with Petersen Automotive Museum to launch the Petersen Automotive Collection, and is running a contest to win a ride-along in five rare vehicles from the museum.

The vehicles include a 1956 Continental Mark II, 1963 Rolls-Royce Ghost, 1994 Bugatti EB110, 1970 Fiat Shellette and a 1961 GSM Delta.

The experience features a ride on iconic routes in Los Angeles with Petersen Automotive Museum’s conservator, Dana Williamson, to learn the complete history of the iconic car.

Founded in 2009 and headquartered in San Francisco, Turo has grown its carsharing marketplace to cities like Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Denver, Seattle, and Montreal.
