Rolls Royces, Lamborghinis and Vintage Buses: How this Cheltenham School Travelled to Prom

If you are in the process of planning your prom, then you will no doubt be thinking carefully about the all-important prom car. Being just as essential as the dress, shoes and make-up, prom cars now make for the perfect, Instagram-worthy accessory everyone wants to be remembered for.

Being huge fans of high-end prom cars, we at Cars for Stars were delighted to see images of one school’s fleet, with Balcarras School in Charlton Kings, Cheltenham, making the news for their impeccable taste in prom cars.

Hiring a collection of beautiful chauffeur cars, sports cars and buses, the Year 11s made a real entrance, seeing passersby stop and stare as they made their way to The Cheltenham Regency Hotel in Staverton.

The prom cars

Displaying eclectic tastes, students competed against each other when it came to their vehicles of choice. Where some went for beautiful Rolls Royces, others opted for all-singing, all-dancing Lamborghinis. Larger friendship groups that wanted to travel as one picked vintage buses and there was even a lorry cab thrown in for good measure!

While all different in style, all of the prom cars chosen were easy of the eye, having a huge impact on their prom night.

Pleased with the outcome of the event were the two teachers responsible for its organisation; Sara Roylance and Karen Williams-Holland.

Mrs Roylance said:

“There was a DJ, an official photographer, photo booths and a buffet.

“The kids were on the dance floor for three hours solid.

“They really had a good time. Some went off to after parties.”

New Lamborghini Aventador on its Way

Many car brands are now hugely focused on the ever-growing SUV market; especially in Europe.

This means, the wonderful supercar has taken a bit of a backseat, with manufacturers more concerned with catering to those seeking larger vehicles.

However, it appears one supercar brand, Lamborghini, is retaining their focus, said to be working on an all-new Lamborghini Aventador model.

Expected to hit our roads in 2022, the new Aventador will be the Italian carmaker’s first electrified model, turning their flagship car into a true presentation of modern car manufacturing.

What can we expect?

According to various sources, the car will be a V12 hybrid, with Lamborghini doing their best to support Europe’s emissions target.

This was confirmed in a recent interview with the company’s technology chief, Maurizio Reggiani. Talking to Car Magazine, he said:

“The Aventador replacement will be naturally aspirated and a plug-in hybrid, because this is the best mix of emotion and DNA for Lamborghini,” Reggiani said.

“For the moment it is not a problem to be homologated worldwide.”

The car is said to be modelled on the Terzo Millennio; sporting the Y-shaped daytime running lights that we have all grown to love. These could well be complemented by two aerodynamic fins that will site just behind the front wheels, giving the Aventador an even sportier look than ever before. These are however just the predictions made by concept artist, Avarvarii, who shared his vision of the 2020 model via a drawing shared on social media platform, Instagram.

His and Hers Wedding Cars

Planning a wedding is a huge task; one that requires a great deal of time and patience.

Here at Cars for Stars, we enjoy helping brides, grooms and professional wedding planners with the transport side of things, offering a range of cars and limos to transport happy couples on their big day!

However, in recent months we have seen an influx of enquiries for ‘his and her wedding cars’, with brides and grooms eager to show unity through their transport selection.

If you are shopping for bridal and groom cars that complement one another, check out the below pairings:

Rolls Royce Phantom and Rolls Royce Ghost

What could possibly be better than a Rolls Royce? Two Rolls Royces of course!

With Rollers setting a wonderful tone at any event in which they grace, it is understandable why Rolls Royces are such in-demand wedding cars. If you are looking for that ‘perfect pair’, the Phantom and Ghost work well together in our opinion, being a common paring at UK weddings.

Audi Q7 limo and Audi Q7

The Audi Q7 is a big car with a big personality, making a real statement when arriving at wedding venues. Being a modern car with clean lines and an eye-catching exterior design, the famous Q7 is a favourite of ours. While the traditional SUV is a roomy wedding car, we are also seeing a huge amount of interest in the Audi Q7 limo. Perfect for large bridal parties with 6+ bridesmaids, the limousine paired with the SUV looks the part!

Rolls Royce Silver Cloud and Rolls Royce Majestic Prince

After something a little more traditional? If so, explore our vintage collection. If searching for a his and her pair, the Silver Cloud and Majestic Prince Rolls Royces make for great bride and groom matching cars. Equally as stunning, it’s up to you who gets which!

Lotto Winner Collects Money in a Stretched Limo

Here at Cars for Stars, we are highly regarded for our limousine hire services, having been supplying luxury cars and limos to UK customers for nearly two decades. This is why we are always pleased to see and hear of people enjoying limousines, understanding the impact such vehicles can have on important events and occasions.

Just this week, we saw Lotto winner, Odhran Doherty, hire a luxury Hummer limo to collect his winnings, renting the stunning stretched vehicle to travel from Donegal to Dublin. The 23-year-old did however have to turn around just ten miles into the journey. According to the lucky gent, he forgot to take his ticket with him, having to go back and start the ride in the luxury Hummer all over again!

Odhran said:

“My father put it in a safe place, a wee bit too safe now to be honest. We were in Raphoe, near where we got the bloody thing.

“But it wasn’t too bad, we were only in Raphoe so we got it back and it was alright.”

Odhran, a farm worker, was given the ticket by his father, Liam. Winning a huge £850,000, he was thrilled to have gifted such a life-changing sum of money to his offspring.

After a long day working with his wife and son on the farm, Liam decided to treat them all to a Lotto ticket.

“We were working on Saturday, Margaret, myself and him on the farm all day and I decided to go up to Raphoe for something to eat.

“I bought three tickets, one for Margaret, myself and Odhran” he recalls.

With his winnings, Odran says he will of course repay his father, wanting to treat his parents to a Massey Ferguson tractor as well as a big family holiday.

Though having a huge nest egg, Odran says he will continue working with his parents on the farm but tells how, “every day is a party now”.

The best of luck to him!

At Cars for Stars, we love nothing more than sharing our amazing fleet with the people of the UK, being a reputable supplier of luxury car hire for various events and occasions.

Having grown our collection to include a range of options and colours, we are keen to promote our diverse fleet of buses to our much-valued customers.

Below we take a look at the top reasons people are hiring party buses.

Hen and stag parties

Hen and stag parties are all about that last blow out. Usually arranged by Best Men and Bridesmaids, these celebrations are centred on fun and fun alone. This is why hiring a party bus just makes sense, filled with fun entertainment features such as karaoke machines and surround sound music systems.

Proms

Prom celebrations are getting bigger and better with each year that passes. Where limousines and chauffeur cars are still highly in demand, prom kings and queens are much preferring travelling in party buses. Able to transport tens of people at once, these buses are colossal in size and in style.

Graduations

Graduation parties are now becoming more common, with university graduates wanting to mark such a key event with a stunning car. However, having spent three years with their head in books, graduation is a time for letting your hair down.

For this reason, party buses are being hired for graduations up and down the county, with classmates chipping in together to hire these nightclubs on wheels.

Birthday celebrations

If you have a big birthday coming up, you may be thinking about making this one a birthday to remember. Well, why not take inspiration from many other birthday girls and boys in the UK and hire a party bus?

Rolls Royce Announce Details of Their ‘Progress Tour’

If you are a lover of the iconic Rolls Royce brand, you will have heard the news of their big move.

The British carmakers will soon be relocating their London showroom to Mayfair, Westminster. Claiming to have outgrown their current base on Berkeley Square, Rolls Royce are conducting a ‘Progress Tour’ to celebrate these changing times. This will mark the end of an era at Berkeley Square whilst promoting the ‘new age’ vehicles within their fleet.

What is a Progress Tour?

Good question! Basically, this ‘Progress Tour’ will see Rolls Royce cars feature at the capital’s boroughs over a two-week period, making appearances at a collection of locations as they exit their old premises and prepare for life at their new showroom.

These will include significant locations in Hammersmith and Fulham, Southwark, Wandsworth and Camden. The tour will begin on the 16th April from Kensington, showcasing the Phantom, Ghost, Wraith, Dawn and Cullinan marques for all to see.

“The Rolls-Royce showroom in London is our flagship store worldwide and I am delighted by the prospect of H.R. Owen moving to more representative and appropriate premises in Mayfair. The ‘Progress Tour’ is testament to the success of the marque’s progressive approach to engaging with its clients and our unique ability to support customers in a way that befits the brand,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

Claus Andersen, Dealer Principal, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London, said:

“We look forward to taking Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London to a number of the city’s boroughs en route to its new home in Mayfair. In the spirit of the brand’s innovative Social Hot Spot programme, highly Bespoke motor cars and lifestyle accoutrements will be presented at a number of noteworthy locations across the capital, ensuring that existing and prospective clients can begin their Bespoke journey in an environment that truly reflects their lifestyle.”

What to Expect from the New Rolls Royce Ghost

The Rolls Royce brand is renowned for keeping us on our toes. From their surprise entrance into the SUV market with the Rolls Royce Cullinan to their pledge to make all new cars customised, Rolls Royce is a brand that cleverly combines traditional values with modern car needs.

Now, the eccentric brand prepares to launch an all-new version of the famous Rolls Royce Ghost; a car that we at Cars for Stars have enjoyed having in our fleet for many, many years.

While thought to look the part and retain that iconic Roller ‘look’, what exactly can we expect from the 2020 edition?

Well, according to sources, the new generation Ghost will ditch the current platform for an aluminium spaceframe alternative. This will make the car considerably lighter, meaning it will be capable of higher speeds and enjoy improved handling. And, with the current model often criticised for being 2,500 kg and requiring a great deal of fuel to power, this is a change that the industry has welcomed.

The 2020 Ghost will also work with a four-wheel drive set-up, supported by a 6.6-litre V12 twin-turbo engine.

The exterior

Now that we have an idea of what we can expect under the bonnet, what will the car look like? Having seen a few spy images of versions being tested, we immediately notice that the rear-hinged rear doors and large grilles are back! The bright LED headlights have also been kept during the redesign process. Though, these have benefited from improved laser technology, making them more efficient and attractive than ever.

Rolls Royce hire

Here at Cars for Stars, we enjoy hiring our stunning Rolls Royce cars out to fellow car enthusiasts. So, if you like the idea hiring a Rolls Royce Ghost, Phantom, Silver Cloud to even the new Cullinan, get in touch.

The Best Convertible Cars to Hire this Summer

With the British weather famously unpredictable, it arguably makes us more appreciative of the summer, making the most of the sunny spells. This is why in recent years, we have seen more and more of our customers hire luxury convertibles, wanting to travel in great cars and absorb the UK’s landscapes in style.

So, if you are whisking a special someone away on a road trip or want to treat a family member to the gift of car hire, below are a few convertibles to consider hiring.

Bentley Continental Convertible

Nothing beats being chauffeured around in a convertible, especially if it is a Bentley! This is why the Bentley Continental Convertible is incredibly popular during the summer months. With heated seats to counteract the sharp wind, this car offers travel perfection with each turn of the wheel.

Porsche Carrera Convertible

Porsche is a respectable car brand that everyone admires. This is especially the case when it comes to the Porsche Carrera Convertible; a luxury droptop that garbs the attention of all.

Lamborghini Gallardo

Looking to make a real entrance to an event? If so, be sure to explore the show-stopper that is the Lamborghini Gallardo. Being fast, light and coming in a variety of loud colours, this is a car that is understandably in demand for summer weddings, birthday parties, proms and much more.

Self-drive convertible hire

Though being driven by a chauffeur driver is the ultimate form of luxury, many car enthusiasts like to get behind the wheel and feel the engine roar themselves. This is why we are highly in demand for our self-drive car hire solutions, allowing customers to really enjoy the cars they hire to the utmost.
