Blackburn Prom Queen Pays £500 to Rent Crystal-covered Roller for 15 minutes!

If you ever attended a prom you will know just how difficult it can get when wanting to upstage your friends. This is why many choose to rent lavish cars, going head-to-head with fellow attendees to make the biggest entrance possible.

However, one Blackburn student has arguably made history, arriving at her school prom in a breathtakingly unique Rolls Royce.

According to sources, Isha Sanah Akhtar, 16, turned heads at the beginning of the month when she arrived at her school prom in a crystal-covered white Rolls Royce. Adorned in over 4 million Swarovski diamonds, this rare Roller was the talk of the town, said to have cost £500 to hire for 15 minutes.

She said: “Ever since I’ve been small my uncle has been like a father figure to me.

“He wanted to do something special for my prom and give me a great send-off from school.

“My uncle and family wanted to do something different for me so I didn’t have the same entrance as anyone else.

Though undeniably lavish, we simply cannot help but admire this young student’s extra nature. However, at £500 for just 15 minutes, this is an awfully expensive prom car hire deal.

EXP 100 GT: Bentley Mark 100th Birthday With Zero Emissions Concept

As you know, at Cars for Stars we love nothing more than hearing of exciting new car concepts. This is why we were thrilled to learn that Bentley will be marking its 100th birthday with the launch of a zero emissions concept vehicle. 

Referred to as the EXP 100 GT, the designs are like nothing we have ever seen before, described by Bentley as a “transformative zero-emissions concept car”. 

With sleek lines, bursting with innovative technology and sporting a minimalist design, this concept ticks all the boxes! 

While giving little away about what the car will boast under the bonnet, Bentley connoisseurs predict the vehicle to be powered by batteries. But, as reported on previously by us at Cars for Stars, this is not the first concept car to come from the British carmakers.

Back in 2017, Bentley unveiled the EXP 12 Speed 6e, choosing to share details of the cocept at the famous Geneva Motor Show. Impressing car enthusiasts and environmentalists across the globe, its popularity no doubt influenced this latest project. 

This is not the only way the brand is celebrating a century in business either. According to sources, Bentley is working on the Bentayga Hybrid as well as V8 variations of the Continental GT coupe, Continental GT convertible and the Flying Spur sedan.

So, should Bentley’s focus for the next 100 years be sustainability? Let us know what you think by leaving your comments with us.

The World’s First Solar Powered Car

As a nation, we are all doing our bit to live in a more ‘sustainable’ manner. From reducing our waste to utilising greener energy supplies, our mission to save the planet is well and truly on.

As a result, sales of gas-guzzling cars are on the decline, with modern consumers a lot more interested in electric and hybrid vehicles.

This is why we are seeing both new companies and popular car manufacturers venturing into the world of green travel, wanting to position themselves as a responsible brand while attracting the eco-warriors amongst us.

Just this week, we have seen the prototype of the world’s first solar powered car. Created by Dutch start-up, Lastyear, the car has been created directly to combat climate change.

Set to be on our roads by 2021, the vehicle can now be reserved by interested parties for £106,000, with its creators revealing that 100 units have already been purchased.

“Climate change is one of the biggest problems that we humans have faced in our history” the brand’s Chief Executive, Lex Hoefsloot, said.

“It is such a frightening development that it is almost paralysing. We decided to do the opposite; as engineers, we believed we could do something.

“Lightyear One represents a huge opportunity to change mobility for the better”.

While a venture that seems to be taking off rather well, the company now look to reduce the price tag of the car, entering the next development stage in a mission to be make sustainable travel more affordable.

Supplying all sorts of cars, limos and party buses, we understand just how expensive proms can be.

This is why it came as no surprise to us when it was revealed that Norfolk parents were spending an average of £500 each on their child’s prom. Having to rent luxury vehicles, professional make-up artists, designer suits/dresses and much more, it appears the students of East Anglia are hellbent on looking the part for prom.

Norfolk Mother, Mel Rudgley-Coleman, spent a huge £500 on her daughter’s prom. Talking on the subject, she said:

“I indulged her with the dress which was £300, the limo was £100 each, hair was £50, nails £45 and accessories such as shoes and a bag were £50.”

Showing how things can quickly add up, it does beg the question, ‘should proms be costing so much’?

The World’s Cheapest Ferrari On Sale for £200

When it comes to luxury cars, we all expect to pay through the nose for vehicles, with the saying ‘you get what you pay for’ never being so relevant.

This is why at Cars for Stars, we were rather confused to see a stunning Ferrari up for sale for just £200. That’s right; £200! As a car brand renowned for its colossal price tags, we understandably wanted to find out what the catch was.

Well, as it turns out, the Chinese police are currently in possession of the beautiful supercar, taking it into their depot after it was involved in a traffic accident.

Because the vehicle was uninsured, Chinese authorities dubbed it useless, saying it was only good for scrap metal. They also struggled to find any official information regarding the car, making it illegal to drive in the county.

The Ferrari 599 is however in full working order and actually worth £100,000 in today’s market. If sold for the guide price of £200, it will be the cheapest Ferrari in the world.

A spokesperson for the court said: “There is no information about this vehicle at the Vehicle Management Office, so it’s non-transferable and can’t be driven.

“That’s why it’s so cheap – we viewed it as scrap metal, and its scrap evaluation came to £276 (2,430 RMB). We then offered a 30 percent discount on that for our auction.”

Whoever does bag this amazing vehicle will be liable to pay £1,140 in unpaid parking fines; a small price to pay when looking at what it could potentially get on the re-sale market.

BMW Partner with Land Rover for Electric Car Venture

Modern car manufacturers have been put under an increasing amount of pressure of late, with more calls for electric and hybrid cars taking its toll. Seeing drivers neglect your conventional petrol and diesel models in favour of electric alternatives, big brands have had no choice but to adapt during these changing times.

The latest to jump on the electric car bandwagon is Jaguar Land Rover, having joined forces with industry competitor; BMW.

Together, the rivals will create the technology to assist electric car production, pooling their talents to produce electric motors, transmissions and power electronics.

The benefits to doing so are plentiful. From being able to get electric cars off the production line quicker than ever before to meeting the stringent anti-pollutions laws the industry now faces, this joint venture could be the making of both brands.

BMW board member Klaus Froehlich said:

“Together, we have the opportunity to cater more effectively for customer needs by shortening development time and bringing vehicles and state-of-the-art technologies more rapidly to market.”

Nick Rogers, Jaguar Land Rover’s engineering director, said:

“We’ve proven we can build world-beating electric cars but now we need to scale the technology to support the next generation of Jaguar and Land Rover products.”

This is not however the first example of competitors joining forces. Volkswagen and Ford are currently making cars together while rumours continue to circulate over a Fiat and Renault business merge.

BMW and Land Rover hire

Here at Cars for Stars, we are rather excited to see what these ventures will result in. Until then, we are keen to promote the wonderful BMWs and Land Rovers already gracing our roads.

Sporting a multi-coloured exterior, this lambo has been customised down to the very last detail, starting out as a plain white car and ending up a multi-coloured, illuminating, glow-in-the-dark one.

The customisation was carried out by RDBLA, with the vehicle now being referred to as the ‘baby lambo’.

Developing a unique wrap with a symmetrical chrome design, the car is apparently a different colour from every angle. This is topped off with all-purple headlights, making this car one of the most unique Lamborghini customisations we have ever seen.
