Steph Woods from X Factor hitched a ride with Cars for Stars

Twice X Factor evictee, Steph Woods, is definitely one to look out for! Last week she posted a picture on Twitter sprawled inside one of our Rolls Royce Phantoms! Things are definitely looking up for Steph and Cars for Stars was thrilled to be a part of her journey.

The young liverpudlian has had an epic musical adventure, especially when thinking back to her X Factor experiences. She first auditioned

for the ITV show at the very young of 14, back in 2007. Progressing all the way to judges houses, mentored by Sharon Osborne, her dream was then crushed. Claiming she was too young to handle the pressure, Sharon

regrettably decided to take her off the show.

Steph Woods returned to the show this year on learning of Sharon’s return to the judging panel. Having all her memories resurfaced she told that this would be her last shot at the X Factor, pulling on Sharon’s heartstrings throughout the series.


When her 2013 X Factor

voyage ended at boot camp the country was devastated to see the back of her, especially Mrs O.

The rock stars wife spilled out her emotions towards Steph on the show and continues to talk about her in the press. In an interview entitled ‘My X Factor Special Moment’ featured in Women & Home Magazine Sharon presented her emotions on the page.

“Every so often an act wanders in that reminds me why I love doing it”

Sharon talks of Steph’s return to the show after 6 years from seeing her.

‘Fast-forward six years and she turned up to audition again this year, it was such an incredible moment, really humbling.”

We can safely say that Cars for Stars was greatly honoured to work with an up and coming British star like Steph!


Rolls-Royce announces launch of Rolls-Royce Wraith

British luxury car maker Rolls-Royce has announced the addition of a brand new model to its fleet of envy-inspiring automobiles. The Rolls-Royce Wraith, touted to be “the most powerful Rolls-Royce”, will be revealed to the public at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show to be held in early March.

Details surrounding the Rolls-Royce Wraith are being aggressively protected but we can expect it to be a coupe version of the car maker’s prestigious Rolls-Royce Ghost. According to sources, the Rolls-Royce Wraith will be “the most powerful Rolls-Royce that has ever played host to the famous Spirit of Ecstasy figurine”.

Rumours making the rounds suspect that the new Rolls-Royce model will boast a V12 engine which is expected to produce in the region of 600bhp.

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, discussed the choice of name for the new model. The Wraith name was first used by the Rolls-Royce brand in 1938 when we saw the production of the Silver Wraith that ceased to exist in 1959.

Mr Müller-Ötvös said: “Wraith alludes to an almost imperceptible but powerful force, something rare, agile and potent, a spirit that will not be tethered to the earth. It is the perfect name for our new model.”

The first Wraith cars will be delivered to customers at the end of the year.

The car maker, based in Goodwood in West Sussex, is owned by BMW. It has recently been in the news for its record sale of cars that rose from 1,002 in 2009 to 3.575 in 2012.


Rare Aston Martin sells for £1.23 million at classic car auction

An extremely rare Aston Martin sports car, once owned by the manager of Phil Collins, was the biggest seller at a recent Bonhams car auction in Buckinghamshire when the hammer went down at £1.23 million. The highly sought after Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato Santion ll Coupe is one of only four in existence, making it an extremely collectable item.

The vintage motor is the result of an collaboration in the 60’s between luxury car maker Aston Martin and Zagato. 19 DBRGT models were manufactured between 1961 and 1963, although they had planned to make 23 of the cars.

Thirty years on, the four unfinished cars which should have been completed in the 1960’s along with the other DBRGT 19 vehicles, were sent down to Zagato’s head quarters in Milan to be completed. While these four cars were designed to be direct copies of the 60’s sports car, the end result was that they were in fact, improved models of the DBRGT run of vehicles originally created.

As one of the only four vehicles of its kind, it’s not surprising the exclusive and tremendously rare Aston Martin was finally sold for a whopping £1.23 million at the Bonhams auction this week.

A total of 46 Aston Martin vehicles went under the hammer as part of the Bonham auction held at the Aston Martin Works, selling for a collective total of £6.5 million, which is a new record for the auctioneer’s Aston Martin sale.

Jennifer Lopez gives the Rolls Royce Ghost her seal of approval

Actress and singer Jennifer Lopez appears to be a fan of the new Rolls Royce Ghost as the Latino star was seen recently arriving at a press conference in a chauffeur driven black version of the luxury saloon.

The 42-year-old music and movie star was accompanied by her new boyfriend, Casper Smart, as she arrived at the press conference in the back of a new Rolls Royce Ghost. The 7-Series stretch luxury car boasts a 6.6 litre twin turbo V12 engine and a raft of luxurious onboard features including sumptuous leather upholstery and metal trim for a sophisticated and high quality finish.

The international star emerged from her chauffeur driven Rolls Royce Ghost flanked by her chauffeur and security staff. Her arrival at the press conference certainly caused a stir as the star stepped out of the imposing blacked out Rolls Royce wearing a fitted illusion dress with the movie star looked completed by a pair of shades.

Most recently the mother of two was seen in TV adverts promoting the Fiat 500, however it seems that the star prefers a more stately mode of transportation when she’s travelling on business.

The new addition to JLo’s garage isn’t the first Rolls Royce the world famous star has owned as she was given a Rolls Royce Phantom back in 2004 as a gift from her former boyfriend, Hollywood actor Ben Affleck. However Jennifer gave the luxury motor back to her ex after the couple broke up a few months later.
