Londoners Favour Porsches And Ferraris Over All Other Supercars

London is a city that is regarded as the fashion capital of the world, being an area associated with utter style and sophistication. This is especially the case when it comes to transport in the city, with the streets of London peppered with stunning supercars, limousines and high-end chauffeur cars at all times. 

However, the area’s love affair with fine cars has only increased over the last few years, with a new study placing Porsche and Ferrari as the city’s favoured car brands.

This is according to local car finance firm, JBR Capital. Delving into their sales stats, they found that Porches and Ferraris were the most-financed supercars by far, having held this title for over a year now. Third, fourth and fifth positions were held by Audi, Bentley and Lamborghini.

“Porsche and Ferrari consistently come top of the list in terms of the number of supercars we finance in London, and that includes Greater London,” said Darren Selig of JBR Capital

Popular cars financed in London include the Ferrari La Ferrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder Weissach, both costing over £1.5m to purchase.

Rolls Royce Founder’s Car up for Sale

There is only one thing more beautiful than a vintage car; a vintage car with an interesting backstory!

This is why at Limo Broker, we were intrigued to learn about a 1921 Rolls Royce that has emerged. Formerly owned by Rolls Royce Founder, Henry Royce, the car boasts a unique and interesting history.

Used for the manufacturing tycoon to travel between France and England, the vehicle was said to be a favourite of his. And, having seen images of this rather special car, it is easy to see why.

However, after designing and creating the car, Royce experienced a few teething issues with the vehicle. Despite a few bumps in the road, he still gave the car a glowing review, quoted to have said:

‘The ignition is now going well and I am very pleased with the car which I am now driving myself. The roads are so rough that it takes time to sort out what is a bad road and a good car.’

Called The Twenty Goshawk II, the vehicle is the last of its kind to still be in tact, being the epitome of 1920s vehicle design. With four doors, a convertible roof and an old school luggage grid, the idiom ‘they don’t make them like this anymore’ is somewhat appropriate.

Now, the car is up for auction, expected to fetch £120,000.

John Tomlin, of Historics, said: ‘Very seldom does a car with such a wonderful history come to sale.

‘The fact that it is the oldest surviving Rolls-Royce of its type makes it of tremendous interest to any collector worldwide.

‘What’s more, the fact that it was an experimental model, the personal car of Henry Royce, and comes to sale with a fascinating history file elevates its interest and value to an exceptional level.’

Wedding Transport: How to Surprise Guests With Your Entrance

The standard British wedding is no longer a day packed with traditions, with brides and grooms eager to celebrate their love for each other in a way that pays homage to them and their relationship. Ripping up the rulebook at any given opportunity, modern couples focus heavily on ways in which they can shock their guests.

If you are planning a wedding and wish to impress your all-important guests, have you thought about your entrance? Being a part of the wedding that everyone remembers, choosing a fun, unusual vehicle to turn up in is highly advised!

Below, we look at some of the best vehicles and transport methods that are renowned for their jaw-dropping nature.

Helicopter

If you really want to turn heads with your wedding day entrance then there is simply no better way to do so than with a helicopter. Being the very pinnacle of luxury and class, arriving at your wedding venue from the skies will go down in history.

Stretched Limousine

Usually reserved for the rich and famous, limousines are both good-looking and spacious, making them the perfect mode of transport for brides with big dresses and lots of bridesmaids. Standing out on the road, stretched limos are incredibly glamorous, doubling up as the perfect princess carriage for the bride.

Horse and carriage

Travelling via horse and carriage was first introduced in the 18th century. Developed before the humble automobile, horse and carriage rides were exclusive to the wealthiest in society. Now, many revert back to this mode of transport for their wedding day, being a lavish way to take on the roads of Britain.

Party bus hire

Looking for something a little more fun-focused? If so, then you may want to consider a party bus. Filled with everything you could possibly need to get the party/wedding started, party buses are just incredible. Inside, brides and grooms can enjoy:

Champagne fridges
Televisions
Music systems
Lighting
Wi-fi
Karaoke machines

If you like the idea of arriving in any of the above for your wedding, contact us today and allow us to find a suitable deal.

5 Things to Consider When Hiring Wedding Cars

Wedding day planning is notorious for its stressful nature, with brides and grooms often feeling pressurised to get everything right and within budget.

This is certainly the case when it comes planning wedding cars, with happy couples needing to find vehicles that tick all the boxes. Below, we share a few things couples need to consider during the wedding car planning process. So, if you are at that stage where you are looking to reserve your vehicles, read on.

Size of the vehicle

When talking about wedding cars, size really does matter! In our experience, the bigger the wedding car, the better. This is because most brides tend to have large dresses, with the comeback of the meringue dress only heightening the need for roomy wedding car cabins. Also, groomsmen will want to arrive with their suit crisp and creaseless, meaning bunching up in the backseat like sardines in a can just isn’t an option.

Length of hire

While you may have a strict itinerary mapped out for your wedding day, the truth is, things don’t always run like clockwork. From photographers needing more time to get that ‘perfect’ shot to speeches running on a little longer than expected, having a wedding day timeline is pretty pointless. And, the last thing you need is your chauffeur driver having to leave the venue before you are ready to go. This is why you should think carefully when deciding on the length of hire. Put it this way, you are much better off hiring your wedding cars for too long rather than not long enough.

Colours

The colour of your wedding car will have a big impact on the look and feel of your big day. Where gleaming white limos represent modernity, burgundy chauffeur cars will give your wedding day a more vintage/classic vibe. Below are the top wedding car colours we receive requests for:

  • White
  • Black
  • Burgundy
  • Blue
  • Red
  • Pink

However, we have been known to hire out bright green and yellow Lamborghinis for the more daring of brides and grooms!

Ribbons and flowers

Many choose to adorn their wedding cars with ribbons and flowers, ensuring all other road users are fully aware that their cars are being used for a wedding celebration. If this is something you would like for your wedding day, be sure to make this apparent when reserving your vehicles!

Photography

Though commonly referred to as the most important day of your life, your wedding day will feel like it is over in a flash. This is why so many brides and grooms want professional photos taken, allowing them to look back on their special day and relive all of those memories. Here at Limo Broker, we see most of our wedding customers request photographs with their limos and chauffeur cars, using them as visually stunning props to pose next to. So, when reserving your cars, think how you can photograph them before signing off on a quote.
