Liz Taylor’s Green Rolls Royce Wedding Car to Fetch $7M at Auction

As you can tell by the vehicles on our website, we are suckers for vintage cars. And, in our opinion, there is only one thing better than a vintage vehicle and that’s a vintage vehicles owned by a celeb!

This is why we were intrigued to learn about a special Rolls Royce up for sale, previously owned by the one and only Liz Taylor.

Created specifically for her wedding, the car is now expected to fetch a huge $7m at auction, with its celebrity association putting millions on the price tag.

But, what is so special about this Roller in particular? Firstly, the car is a rare Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II; one that a gorgeous green body, sprayed to be the exact same colour as the actress’ wedding gown. What’s more is that the classic car boasts a personalised number plate that reads ‘LIZSC2’, being a much-photographed item during her wedding to Eddie Fisher in 1959.

As well as being visually perfect, the car is also mechanically sound. With just 40,644 miles on the clock and only two previous owners, the car hasn’t really done much in its life. That said, Taylor did drive it to Rome back in 1962 to film one of her greatest film achievements, Cleopatra.

Arlan Ettinger, the founding head of Guernsey’s, said the following of this iconic car:

“It was the most glamorous car one could acquire at the time. It was beautiful, but edgy in that it was a convertible. It was not a stately Rolls Royce. It was a Rolls Royce with flare. She had this colour uniquely created just for her…

“The combination of this being a beautiful Rolls Royce and Liz Taylor’s car makes it doubly special. It has a fascinating history. Unlike many celebrities who own a car for a short while and then pass it on, she became identified with this car. She owned it for 20 years.”

The green Rolls Royce is now on display at New York’s Pierre Hotel. Guernseys will be taking bids as of August 6th.

What to Consider When Hiring a Luxury Car

Hiring a luxury car for the day is for many, a once in a lifetime thing. This is why when arranging hire, many have lots of questions they need answering. Today, we answer them, below sharing the top things to consider when exploring luxury car rental.

Times and dates

It is important to note that the times and dates you want to hire your car or limo could have a huge bearing on what is available to you. This is due to luxury cars and limousines being heavily in-demand during times such as wedding season and prom season. So, when looking into car hire, think carefully about timings. This will ensure you are not left disappointed.

The size of your vehicle

If hiring a limousine, chauffeur car or even a sports car for a special occasion, you need to consider the size of its cabin. This is certainly the case if you are a bride with a big ‘ol dress to cram inside!

Budget

When shopping for luxury car hire deals, it is important that you start out with a budget in mind. This is especially the relevant when working with us at Limo Broker. This is because if we know your budget, we can find the very best deals out there for you.

Route

Before placing a booking for a luxury car, think about where it is you want to go and how you can make the most of your beautiful vehicle. For instance, do you just want to get from A to B or would an hour-long tour of London make for a memorable transport experience?

4 4x4s to Hire

While best known for limo hire and wedding car hire, over the past few years we have extended our network of 4×4 operators, with the nation craving affordable 4×4 hire services.

Arguably fed by the Kardashian’s fleet full of G Wagons, Rollers and Range Rovers, 4X4s and SUV are only growing in popularity as the years go by.

Today we look at 4 4X4s you should definitely think about hiring for your next big event.

Range Rover Sport

The Range Rover Sport is simply the greatest 4X4 of all time: fact. Having evolved over time, it is a monstrous vehicle that only improves with age. But, with one of the largest price tags on the 4X4 market, many see travelling inside a Sport as a bit of a dream. This is why at Limo Broker we ensure we have access to affordable Range Rover deals, sharing exquisite vehicles with those passionate about fine cars.

Rolls Royce Cullinan

The Rolls Royce Cullinan was the British car brand’s first and only SUV, made famous when used at Prince Harry’s wedding. Cleverly combining sophisticated design with off-road capabilities, we simply can’t fault the Cullinan as a car hire option.

BMW X5

Though having won various awards for its impeccable engine and boyish good looks, the BMW X5 can often get overlooked when discussing fine 4X4s. However, at Limo Broker, we are eager to sing its praises as a chauffeur car, being spacious, comfortable and generally delightful to travel inside.

Mercedes G Wagon

From Kylie Jenner to Drake and many famous footballers, it appears most celebs now have a G Wagon. This is due to their flash nature, being a rather expensive vehicle to purchase. Signifying wealth and style at the same time, the G Wagon is arguably the most popular 4X4 of 2019.

If you are interested in hiring any of the above 4X4s in your local area, run a quick quote on our system now.

Student Left Devastated After Bully Ruined Her Prom Dress

Your prom day is meant to be one of the most important days of your life, taking months to prepare and get excited for. From hiring professional make-up artists to investing in the most extravagant gowns and limos, for girls, proms are approached much like weddings.

But, for one Doncaster prom Queen, the fun ended at the preparation stages, being left humiliated after a bully threw a jug of juice all over her and her beautiful prom dress.

Emilee Perry, who already suffered from anxiety, needed to be collected from prom just two hours after being dropped off. Devastated by the incident, her mother, Tracy, took to social media, posting the following:

“This is my beautiful daughter, who suffers with anxiety, whom we had to beg to go to the prom this evening.

“Two hours later I collect her from the prom like this, heartbroken and in a state.

“This ‘person’ thought it a good idea to pour a full jug of juice over her and soak her from head to toe.

“I hope one day someone humiliates and devastates her like she has done to my daughter.”

Also sharing pictures of her stunning daughter before and after the incident, the story seemed to strike a chord with people across the globe. Sharing messages of support, this rather sad prom story turned into a bit of a morale teaching, with parents and children showing support and opening up discussion around bullying in general.

“The way that people have responded has absolutely overwhelmed me and has proven to me that I can get through everything and it hope that this makes me a stronger person” Emilee wrote.

While everyone wanted to know who the person responsible was, Emilee refrained from sharing the fellow student’s name, wanting to avoid “spreading more hate”.

David Hasselhoff Reunited with KITT

Though best known for being the Baywatch babe that he is, David Hasselhoff is just as well known for his role as Michael Knight in Knight Rider; the 80s TV show.

While having a great narrative about fighting for justice, for us, the stand-out part of the show was Hoff’s sidekick, his car.

Built by David’s character, KITT (Knight Industries Two Thousand) was a futuristic Pontiac Trans-Am that was capable of speeds as high as 300mph. And, it wasn’t just its speed that was impressive about it. The car was also bulletproof, fireproof, could communicate with its owner and generally supported Michael Knight in fighting the baddies.

This week, David Hasselhoff was reunited with the famous motor during an appearance on GMA. Thrilled to see KITT again, his reaction was priceless, circling the unique car with a rather funny, cheesy grin.

Wearing his iconic black leather jacket and sporting well-gelled hair, Hoff could be seen holding up a number plate that said ‘Knight’, no doubt bringing back nostalgic memories for him and the TV buffs amongst us.

But, why has KITT re-emerged now? Well, The Hoff is currently waiting to feature in the Battle of the 80’s Supercars special, believing KITT to have had a huge bearing on the overall TV and film industry.

Vintage supercars

If, like Hoff, you are a fan of vintage supercars, then you are in luck! This is because at Limo Broker, we offer a vast range of supercar hire options, allowing you to reserve some of the rarest cars through this very site.
