Top 5 Prom Cars for 2019

The modern prom is far from humble, resembling a wedding in many ways. From big dresses and lavish suits to stunning venues, every detail is planned down to a tee. This includes the all-important transport, with prom cars now more extravagant and luxurious than ever before.

Here at Limo Broker, we are thrilled to be the leading prom car hire company in the UK, helping prom Kings and Queens arrive at their prom in ultimate style.

If you are currently on the search for a prom car, then below are a few ideas you may wish to explore.

Prom limousines

Your prom marks the end of an era, being one of the last social gatherings you will experience with all of your school mates. As a result, you do not want to waste a minute of making memories. This is why opting for a limo is a great idea, allowing you to travel with up to 15 of your friends.

Coming in various shapes, sizes and colours, our prom limo range is extensive to say the least. From bright pink party limos to sleek, sophisticated Lincoln Towncars, the prom limo options through Limo Broker are endless.

Rolls Royce Phantom

Fancy something a little more upmarket? If so, then you cannot find a car more iconic than the Rolls Royce Phantom; a fine piece of British car craftmanship. Demanding the attention of all that sees it, you will be sure to make a real entrance if deciding to arrive at your prom in a Roller.

What’s more is that our collection comes in various colours, allowing you to enhance your prom look with a suitable vehicle.

Range Rover Sport

Over the past few years, we have found the male school leavers of our country to enjoy travelling to their prom in a Range Rover, with the Sport model being a fashionable choice.

Ferrari Italia

If you really want to encourage that wow factor, then opting for a supercar is an option. Being the epitome of luxury travel, supercars immediately communicate a message of fun and wealth.

Bentley GT

Last, but by no means least, we have the Bentley GT; another chauffeur car promgoers are hiring to arrive in. Known for its roaring engine and unmatched beauty, the GT has proven to be the perfect car to celebrate your last hurrah as a student.

Grey Named the UK’s Favourite Car Colour

As you will have seen, over the past few years, the UK has grown an obsession with white and black cars, seeing car manufacturers from all over the world producing more vehicles in these colours than ever before.

However, as nation, it appears our tastes are changing, with new research from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) revealing that grey is now topping the list of desired car colours. Being the first time grey has received the majority vote, this trend is expected to stick around for years to come.

According to statistics, over half a million of us decided to buy a grey car in 2018, with one in five new car registrations being for grey cars. SMMT also showed that over half of cars sold during the year came in the colours white, black or grey, suggesting that as car purchasers, as a whole, we are rather dull!

However, when looking at 2018 as a whole, car sales generally fell, with more and more people looking at the hire and lease markets as opposed to car ownership. This means almost every colour saw a decline in sales. This is apart from orange, which grew in popularity by a huge 37%. Beige also saw a slight increase in sales, seeing a growth in interest of 28%.

At the other end of the spectrum, we have cream, with Britain only buying 559 cars in this colour throughout the whole year.

Here at Cars for Stars, we can vouch for this trend, receiving an increase in the number of calls we get for grey car hire. Whether that be for weddings, proms, concerts, corporate outings, birthday parties or even self-drive car hire, grey is the colour on everyone’s radar.

Let us know what you think, will you be buying or hiring a grey car this year? Leave your thoughts with us!

WhatsApp Founder Puts Porsche Collection up for Auction

Here at Limo Broker, we are fascinated by two things; fine cars and high-end technology. This is why we were thrilled to learn that a tech guru was selling his collection of supercars.

According to sources, Jan Koum, the co-founder of messaging application, WhatsApp, will part with his 10-car Porsche collection. Commissioning classic car auction house, Gooding & Co, to sell the Porsches, the vehicles will be sold with no reserve whatsoever.

The collection will be available to the general public on March 8th, with auction attendees getting a chance to bid on the following:

  • 1966 Porsche 964 Carrera RS
  • 1993 Porsche 964 Carrera RS
  • 1995 Porsche 993 Carrera RS
  • 2008 Porsche 997 GT3 RS
  • 2010 Porsche 997 GT3 RS
  • 2011 Porsche 997 GT2 RS
  • 2011 Porsche 997 GT3 RS 4.0
  • 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder (Weissach)
  • 2016 Porsche 911 R
  • 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4

“I am very excited to partner with Gooding to help find the next custodian for these wonderful machines.” says Koum.

“Many of these Porsches offered for sale are the best examples in the world and they are all an important part of my collection. If I had unlimited time and unlimited garage space, I would never sell any of them, but nevertheless I’ll be very happy to see the next owner enjoy driving these special cars on the road or on the racetrack – just as Porsche intended for them to be used.”

Here at Limo Broker, we are huge Porsche fanatics and would be honoured to offer any of the above cars out for hire to our customers. And, with more and more people buying and renting Porsches, we are hugely confident these Porsches will sell like hot cakes.

Let us know what you think. What would you part with to become the proud owner of any of these supercars on offer?

A Big Year for BMW, Rolls Royce and Mini

As you will be well aware, here at Limo Broker we are luxury car fanatics, enjoying nothing more than adding new, beautiful chauffeur cars and sports cars to our already-exquisite fleet. Enjoying chauffeuring our customers for high-end events such as weddings, proms, birthday parties and corporate events, we are naturally in demand for Rolls Royces, BMWs and the likes; vehicles that possess a certain je ne sais quoi!  

And, over the course of the last 12 months, we have witnessed a notable trend, with more and more of our customers showing an interest in vehicles from said brands. This is something that has been noticed globally, with sales of such vehicles rocketing in 2018.  

According to BMW Group, the number of owners of BMW, Rolls Royce and Mini vehicles rose substantially in 2018, with the firm enjoying a record-breaking year.  

Figures released by the firm show that the group sold a 2.49 million cars during this defining year. However, with Daimler yet to reveal their statistics to the public, we are do not know whether or not BMW have yet again beat Mercedes Benz and the likes to the top.  

“BMW Group achieved record sales in 2018. 2.49 million vehicles mean the BMW Group is the world’s leading premium automotive company for the 15th year running,” said Chief Executive of the group, Harald Krueger confirmed in a recent statement. 

However, this is no real surprise, with the BMW X5 and the Rolls Royce Cullinan both being the recipients of a string of high-profile awards during the course of the year. As brands that seem to have perfected the balance between style and sustainable motoring, can we expect a repeat performance in 2019? We would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this subject. Will the BMW Group reign supreme yet again?
