Boasting bags of history, this car is just one of four made by Bentley’s owner, Walter Owen Bentley.

The beautiful car is currently on display at Retromobile in the Porte de Versailles in Paris. It will remain there until after the birthday celebratory event.

Luxury Car Hire for the Carabao Cup Final

The Carabao Cup final is just around the corner, with Manchester City and Chelsea going head to head at Wembley on the 24th February.

Set to be a rather exciting clash, 90,000 fans from all over the country are expected to make their way on London; many of which in luxury cars!

Helping the football fanatics of the country get to and from the stadium safely and in style, we are thrilled to be sharing our range of transport services with them.

Limo hire to get to Wembley Stadium

With sporting fans usually travelling in large groups, your average taxi just won’t do. As a result, many spectators opt to travel to and from the stadium in the comfort of a luxury limousine.

In addition to them being spacious, comfortable and packed with high-tech features, limos are also able to seat parties of up to 16. Removing the need of a designated driver and allowing many to split the fee per head, hiring a limo just makes sense.

Chauffeur car hire for the Carabao Cup Final

Fancy something a little more refined? If that’s the case, you may wish to explore our exquisite range of chauffeur cars. Ranging from Rolls Royces and Bentleys, there really is no limit to the luxuriousness we can offer.

Super car hire to get to Wembley

Thinking of renting something with a bit of panache to get to Wembley? If so, supercar hire may be for you! We can partner you with the best deals to rent Lamborghinis, Bugattis and many other fine sports cars.

Reuben Singh Extends Fleet with Rolls Royce ‘Jewels Collection’

Here at Cars for Stars, we love nothing more than seeing people enjoy great cars. As a result, we are always thrilled to learn of drivers across the globe who spend their time and money building Rolls Royce collections.

This is why we are understandably fascinated by Reuben Singh; a London-based entrepreneur renowned for his spectacular convoy of Rollers. As the CEO of contact center company, alldayPA, the businessman come car enthusiast decides to spend his fortune on fine British cars.

Rising to fame last year when he partook in the 7-day challenger, Singh posed in a new Rolls Royce every day of the week, complementing each of his cars with a matching turban. With the images going viral, many now associate the business tycoon with luxurious travel. Maintaining this association, he has this week revealed details of a new fleet, one that he calls the ‘Jewel Collection’.

Investing in 6 new Rolls Royces, Singh now welcomes two new Phantoms, Ghosts and Cullinans into his fleet. Opting to have them all bespoke-made, the lucky owner has focused on the colours of Rubies, Emeralds and Sapphires, giving them a grand, unique feel.

Once referred to as the ‘British Bill Gates’, Singh is an active user of social media, constantly giving his millions of followers a look at his ever-growing garage of cars. After posting the image of his Jewels Collection, he hinted on the prospect of further additions. Captioning the post “there is always a room for more”, what can we expect to see next from Singh?

Katie Price’s Barbie Car Gathers Attention on Ebay

Katie Price is a celebrity that has been in the limelight for over 20 years now. Always at the centre of some controversy, drama just seems to follow ‘The Pricey’ around.  

This month has seen the mum-of-five hit with a driving ban, having had her licence revoked for diving whilst under the influence of alcohol.  

As a result, she has decided to relieve herself of some of the vehicles within her fleet, this week putting her iconic Barbie car up for sale. Listing the one-of-a-kind jeep on eBay, the car has understandably gained the attention of people across the world.  

Being very open about her driving ban, the model-turned-singer posted the eBay link to her trusty Instagram followers, writing: 

“Soo now I’m banned from driving the cars are going this one is on eBay. 

“When I get my license back new car fresh start.” 

But, the Suzuki is by no means understated, being pink in colour and plastered with all sorts of Barbie stickers. The eBay description read:  

“A well-known Suzuki Vitara that has undergone an extensive exterior re-wrap inc lowered suspension wheel arch kit and wide wheels and tyres. 

“The soft top requires replacement and the mot has expired, the owner has requested to sell the car with no reserve and no buy it now…” 

As it stands, there have been over 200 bids made on the vehicle, with the highest currently at £66,200. This is a huge sum to be paid for an old Suzuki, but its celebrity status seems to turning this old pink car into a sought-after motor.  

Let us know what you think, is £66,200 a nidicolous price for such a car or would you part with that kind of money happily in exchange for it? Leave your thoughts and comments with us.

Showing Lamborghini’s breadth of design talents, the Urus has successfully driven the carmakers sales up, responsible for a huge 46% of Lamborghini’s overall sales in 2018.

According to sources, 1,761 Urus vehicles were bought in 2018, upstaging some of the best-selling models like the Lamborghini Aventador as well as the famous Lamborghini Huracan. That said, the Aventador and the Huracan still witnessed an increase in interest, with sales up from 1,173 to 1,209 and 2,642 to 2,780 respectively.  

International interest

It is not just us Brits who love to treat ourselves to a Lambo. Statistics from the firm show that last year drew more interest from Europe, the Middle East, Africa, America and Asia than ever before. 

In 2019, the Urus is again expected to take centre stage at showrooms across the globe, being promoted at the front of the Lamborghini line up.  

Lamborghini’s boss, Stefano Domenicali, said that the “quantum leap [in sales] proves the sustainability of product and commercial strategy”. 

He also celebrated the car for “creating enthusiastic market acceptance and broadening [the] customer base”. 

Here at Cars for Stars, we have also witnessed an increase in appetite for Lamborghini brands, with our supercar rental services heavily in demand throughout last year.
