Bentley Bentayga Set to Dominate 2016 Car Sales Market

As one of the world’s ultimate prestige brands Bentley never compromise on perfection, renowned for creating mechanical masterpieces. This month they have teased us with the Bentley Bentayga, a car that strikes a chord with us here at Limo Broker.

The SUV markets itself as an off-roading monster, a car that combines the beauty of Bentley design with an aggressive approach to speed and ability. Echoing the sentiment of the increasingly popular Audi Q7 the SUV is set to take a front seat in 2016 car sales.

Daniel Ford, Sales Manager at Limo Broker understands the need for such an alternative design focus.

‘Nowadays people are looking for vehicles that tick all the boxes, demanding attractiveness and aggression simultaneously. This is why we ate Limo Broker are extending out vehicle range to include sizeable vehicles of this nature, catering to the UK’s ever-changing style’.

Encouraging an influx of reviews the Bentayga has passed the British car test with aplomb, with bloggers, reviewers and test-drivers all hailing the new Bentley model a resounding success.

Experience

Put in the safe hands of the Telegraph’s reviewers, the car seemed to go down a storm, with the publication heavily endorsing its features.

‘From behind the wheel, the Bentley feels every bit as accomplished and adaptable as you could wish. Eight driving modes – four on-road, four off-road – ensure it can cope with aplomb over any terrain by subtly altering engine response, air-suspension settings, active anti-roll bars and everything in between.’

Price

With a starting price of £160,000 Bentley certainly have their sights set on the higher end of the market, attracting those that want to be seen in the latest addition to the Bentley fleet.

£220,000 Ferrari 458 Italia Hire Car Smashed to Smithereens

Where limo hire used to be the ultimate form of luxury transportation it seems that self-drive supercar rental has overtaken, with cars like Ferraris Lamborghinis and Audi R8s extremely popular here in the UK. Being a favoured option for those celebrating weddings, proms, birthdays and other important occasions the UK transport industry is constantly introducing new cars available for hire, cars with an incredibly high price tag.

This week a 29-year-old who paid a £5,000 deposit plus £850 a day to rent a Ferrari crashed it, living out every hire company’s nightmare.

With just 4,600 miles on the clock the 458 Italia hit a brick wall and wedged itself underneath a VW Passat taxi, prematurely ending the car’s life on the road.

Bedfordshire Police confirmed the details of the incident.

“We were called at approximately 7pm on Sunday to reports of a three vehicle road traffic collision in which one car collided with a wall.

“The incident happened in Selbourne Road and involved a Ferrari, a VW Passat and a Vauxhall Astra.”

What the owners had to say

Co-owner Jamie Ford, 26, from Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex, said: “When I saw what had happened I was absolutely devastated.

“They have done a really good job of crashing it and writing it off. It took three minutes for the insurance assessors to write it off.

“I just wish people had more respect for super cars. People need to realise that they are not invincible.”

He added: “We can deal with scratches and little dents, but this is absolutely gutting.”

Claiming that many do not understand what it means to drive such a powerful, high-value vehicles the owners of the Italia have been left extremely annoyed by the events of the week, urging those that rents such cars to take more care when behind the wheel.
