Spice Girls Concert

Limo Hire for Spice Girls Concert: Book in Early!

Last week the announcement was made that the Spice Girls (yes, the Spice Girls!) were going on tour. Returning as a 4-piece band, Victoria Beckham has hung up her dancing shoes, leaving Geri, Mel B, Mel C and Emma to belt out the classics.

Lewis Hamilton’s £165,000 limo up for sale on Auto Trader

Whilst we tend to use Auto Trader for our ‘middle of the road’ cars, the car sales website has listed something rather spectacular this week; Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes-Benz S600 Maybach Limo. Though said to be bought for a whopping £165,000, the car is currently being promoted for £104,000, a real bargain when considering the car’s celebrity association. 

No ordinary S-Class

But, this is no ordinary S-Class, with the racing champion having enjoyed a range of optional extras. From adorning some impressive 22” alloy wheels to its sleek panoramic glass sunroof, it is safe to say that the car looks the part.  

In addition to exterior upgrades, the car also enjoys the benefits of a rear seat entertainment package and a top-of-the-range Burmester audio system; making the car fit for any car enthusiast. The new owner can also use the car to unwind and relax, with its cabin fitted with massage chairs, self-closing doors and privacy blinds. But, this car is not all about gismos and gadget. Under the bonnet you will find a rather boisterous 6-litre, biturbo V12 engine; one that can achieve 520bhp and get from 0 to 600mph in a mild 5 seconds.  

A warm welcome from Auto Trader

Thrilled to have such a high-profile car with such a wonderful backstory in their catalogue, Auto Trader were eager to list the Maybach. Talking following the car going live on their site, Erin Baker of Auto Trader said:  

“This is a seriously luxurious car. The standard S-Class is one of the swankiest cars that Mercedes makes, and this Maybach edition is even more high-end, featuring ultimate comfort mixed with cutting-edge technology.” 

“As a Mercedes F1 driver and a four-time world champion, it’s no surprise that Lewis wanted the best of the best. Mercedes must have offered him something pretty special to replace this one. Maybe it’s the new Mercedes-AMG Project One hypercar.” 

Let us know what you think; is Hamilton’s ride worth the £104,000 being asked of it? 

anthony joshua vs joseph parker Cardiff

Anthony Joshua Vs. Joseph Parker in Cardiff, 31st March 2018

On 31st March, undefeated British heavyweight Anthony Joshua will be arriving in Cardiff for a much-hyped bout against New Zealand’s WBO World Champion Joseph Parker. Both giants in the heavyweight world, their fight promises to be one of the most exciting boxing events of recent years.

If you’re planning on attending the event at the city’s Principality Stadium, you certainly won’t be alone. In fact, more than 70,000 boxing fans are expected to flock to the venue, keen to watch as sporting history is made. And while this will make for a fantastic atmosphere, it also means that you’ll need to put some thought into organising your day.

Hotels & Accommodation..

Although there are accommodation options close to the stadium, these will get booked up quickly, and many fans will find themselves staying in hotels and guesthouses around the city.

Transport to Cardiff (Limos, Coaches, Minibuses – even Helicopters)..

Luckily, that doesn’t need to be a problem. Just give Lim Broker a call, and you’ll benefit from our years of experience in organising transport to sporting events. With a variety of cars available at competitive rates, we can take the hassle out of your travel arrangements and ensure that you arrive comfortably at the fight, with plenty of time to spare.

Going with a group of mates and fancy kicking things off in style? We’ve got a fantastic selection of limousines such as Lincoln Tonwncar’, Bentleys, Rolls Royce’ and more. Or, for something really special, why not try out one of our novelty limousines complete with extras like dance floors and on board bars?

We’ve also got an excellent range of coaches and minibuses that are ideal for travelling to the fight from any location. And with everything from spacious double and single decker vehicles to compact minibuses and more, we can cater for parties of all sizes.

So if you want to stop worrying about transport and start looking forward to the biggest fight of the year, give us a call today!

The world’s first electric limo is in the making

With Tesla auctioning their plans for world transport domination their focuses now lay in the limousine category, with Big Limos keeping customers enticed through their Tesla limo stretch project. Understanding the direction the limo hire industry is travelling towards the company want to be the first to introduce an electric limo to the scene, recognising that electric vehicles are going to be a commonplace in new age travel.

The Tesla Model S has been chopped in half with metal sheets joining the front and back together again, giving way to a roomy inside that is expected to seat 8+ passengers. Planned to be positioned comfortably next to models such as the Lincoln Towncar Limousine and the Baby Bentley, could the Tesla be a prominent part of birthday parties, hens, weddings and sporting events throughout the country?

Maintaining functionality

According to the builders they have managed to maintain functionality, something that many stretches fail to do. This includes the touchscreen in the dashboard, something that was expected to be a huge obstacle for the convertors. The screen originally showed the outside rendering of the Model S, set to be replaced by an image of a limousine once the stretch is completed.

CEO of Big Limos, Mike Walstrom, says ‘the electric technology engineering on the Model S was a challenge to get right on the conversion’.

Still awaiting Tesla approval the company do not seem too bothered about that aspect, wanting to look into a partnership further down the line. With an asking price of $100,000-200,000, depending of options, the firm are taking orders, boasting the possibility of gullwing doors on their next project.

Take a look at the progress in the below video and let us know what you think!
