Now, it is not uncommon for sports stars to show off their wealth. From those annoying images of Starbucks coffee cups with expensive watches in the background to eye-wateringly expensive designer clothes, the stars of today are far from humble.

This week, Daniel Sturridge of Liverpool FC joins the braggers club, sharing pictures of his pretty-impressive array of cars.

While struggling to get off the bench for Liverpool in recent weeks, he will no doubt be enjoying the ride home; whatever the result. This is because he boasts a car collection worth a staggering £600,000! Comprising of some of some of the world’s most luxurious brands and models, we take a look at what this Liverpool forward has locked away in the garage.

  • Rolls Royce Wraith – If you are a car enthusiast, you will be impressed by Sturridge’s recent car purchase; an all-new Rolls Royce Wraith. Said to be his pride and joy, the sportsman also splashed out on a Senturion Key bracelet to match, ridding of the inconvenience of having to carry a car key. Costing £34,000, it appears money really is no issue!
  • Ferrari 458 – Adorned in glossy white paint, the footballer’s Ferrari 458 is another stand-out addition to the collection. Setting him back £170,000, this car can get to 62mph in a mere 3.4 seconds.

Putin’s Limo Can Now be Yours

In recent years, we have seen the war of the presidential limo reach new heights, with Trump and Putin going head-to-head, eager to outshine one another with their state limousines. While both sporting exceptional motors, many of us have become fascinated by Putin’s Aurus limousine; a car developed especially for the presidential motorcade.

As a new brand, many believed his choice of car to be risky, ditching the trusty Mercedes limo for a new, untested model.

A ‘bunker on wheels’

Described as a ‘bunker of wheels’ the limousine puts safety and passenger comfort as priorities; two features that will no doubt served the president well daily.

Due to the limo’s success, the Aurus will now enter full mass production, giving everyone the chance to own their very own Aurus limo. But, this story comes as no surprise, with expansion having been on the brand’s radar for many years now.

“We have started receiving signals from various countries about their desire to buy the [Aurus] limousine. Bahrain is among such countries. But while mass production has not been set up yet, there are only a few cars available. In the future, it will be possible,” the representative said back in 2017.

5000 limos to be made

According to sources, the production line will begin in 2020, with the facilities of Russia’s automobile company, Sollers, being utilised for the project.

Trade Minister, Denis Manturov, made the announcement just this week, revealing that some 5,000 Aurus cars will be produced per year. So far, the brand has only been producing limousines and Sedans. However, with this extra capacity and further investment, the range is set to expand dramatically, stamping Aurus’ name in the Russian manufacturing industry for the foreseeable future.

An off-road vehicle entitled the Aurus Komendant is also set to roll off the production line before 2022; a project that the drivers of Russia eagerly await.

The aim of the brand was to position Russia as a world leader in vehicle manufacturing; a target Aurus is getting closer to on a daily basis. Let us know what you think. Will this project be a success?

Frank-Sinatras-Rolls-Royce

Frank Sinatra’s Rolls Royce Could be Yours

In our opinion, there is nothing more exciting than a great car owned by a great celebrity, with we at Limo Broker being lucky enough to boast some pretty extraordinary cars on our books. This is why we are thrilled to learn of a new Rolls Royce up for grabs. According to sources, a Roller previous owned by the one and only Frank Sinatra is on the market.

But, unlike many celebrity cars, this car was actually used by the music sensation, not just left in a garage to rust. Bought for the ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ singer, the 1984 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible was a 70th birthday present, gifted to Sinatra by fellow Rat Pack members Sammy Davis Jr and Dean Martin.

A £125,000 price tag

Brought over from New York to the UK when purchased after the star’s death, the car will now go up for auction at the NEC Classic Motor Show Sale in Birmingham. Taking place on November 10th, the car is expected to fetch a commendable £125,000. Having recently had £47,000 spent on it to restore it, the Rolls Royce is in a truly spectacular state.

“Frank Sinatra is a name that has remained prominent in the world of music and culture and even since his death in 1998, Sinatra’s films and music are still revered as some of the greatest of all time,” said Arwel Richards, classic car specialist at Silverstone Auctions.

“Offering Ol’ Blue Eyes’ Rolls-Royce at auction for the first time in its history presents an amazing opportunity for film, music and car fans alike. The influence Sinatra still holds over the music and film industry to this day is real evidence of the respect and love he garnered throughout his career.”

Let us know what you think, would you part with £125,000 for Frank Sinatra’s car?

Kylie Jenner gifted vintage Rolls Royce for her 21st Birthday

Love them or hate them, you cannot deny that the Kardashian sisters know a thing or two about style. This is especially true when it comes to their impressive convoy of cars. Renowned for travelling in the most lavish or vehicles, the sisters’ fleet comprises of some of the finest, luxury car brands ever made. And, it’s always growing.  

Just this week, Kylie Jenner, the youngest members of the celeb clan, celebrated her 21st birthday. Receiving gifts and messages from just about everyone in the world, the make-up entrepreneur will no doubt have a favourite gift; the vintage Rolls Royce. Gifted to her by boyfriend and father to their daughter, Travis Scott, the rapper certainly did well on the present front.  

“A blessed birthday” 

Kylie wrote, “a blessed birthday, so grateful..” alongside the picture of the vehicle, sending her millions of followers into a slight liking frenzy.  

But, this is not the first car that Travis Scott has bought the soon-to-be Billionaire. In what was branded a ‘push present’, he presented the 21-tear-old reality star with a Ferrari following the birth of their first child, Stormi. Costing a whopping $1.4 million, we can only imagine what this luxury Rolls Royce set the rapper back by.  

Wanting to give his ‘beau’ the best birthday possible, the ‘Astroworld’ rapper wrote the following on social media: 

“Happy bday wifey I love u mommy u my heart rib toes and all. May God continue to bless u and ur spirit. This mark in ur life is the start to more greatness.” 

Thought to be from the 1950’s, the car is incredibly rare and undeniably beautiful. Coming adorned with a large red bow, could there be a more perfect birthday gift?  

In addition to the vehicle, Jenner’s flame also filled her garden with Instagrammable red roses. Her Momanager, the famous Kris Jenner, was also incredibly generous. Giving her daughter a set of Betty Boop Louis Luton luggage, it’s fair to say that the make-up tycoon was well and truly spoilt.  

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle choose Electric Jaguar as their wedding car

Unless you have been under a rock for the last 6 months, you will know that a rather lavish wedding took place on the weekend. Seeing Prince Harry tie the knot with American actress, Meghan Markle, the celebration did not disappoint when it came to extravagance. From guests such as Oprah Winfrey and the Beckhams to the £30m budget, the world stopped and stared as the young couple joined in matrimony.

While many were fixated on Meghan’s dress, shoes and tiara, we at Limo Broker waited patiently to see what the royals had in store for us when it came to transportation. Again, the couple did not fail us, exiting the star-studded event in an Jaguar E Type Concept Zero. Defying royal wedding car convention, many expected Harry to keep up with tradition and enjoy a ride in a petrol-guzzling Rolls Royce; but, did they make the right decision?

Well, many have commended the newlyweds for their car choice. With the car being electric, the couple communicate the message that they are environmentally—friendly, flying the flag for electric cars during one of the most-watched programmes of all time. However, unlike many eco-cars, this vehicle does not compromise when it comes to style.

A remake of ‘the most beautiful car in the world’

As a car that Enzo Ferrari describes as ‘the most beautiful car in the world’, this particular E-Type is a remake of the 1968 classic, staying true to its iconic look during the modernisation process.

Tim Hannig, Director of Jaguar Land Rover Classic, said the following at the launch of the eco version in 2017.

“E-type Zero combines the renowned E-type dynamic experience with enhanced performance through electrification. This unique combination creates a breathtaking driving sensation.

“Our aim with E-type Zero is to future-proof classic car ownership. We’re looking forward to the reaction of our clients as we investigate bringing this concept to market.”

With the ability to get from 0-62 mph in and admirable 5.5 seconds, the car not only looks like the original but it performs like it also.

So, what do you think; does the royal wedding car deserve its price tag of £350,000? Leave your thoughts with us.
