Choosing the perfect car for your wedding is one of the groom’s favourite tasks but by no means is it easy thanks to the staggeringly large amount of vehicles available to hire. From a classic car such as Rolls-Royce or Damlier to sports and high performance cars like Ferraris and Lamborghinis, there is an almost limitless list of cars you can hire for your big day. Here is your essential guide to the most desirable wedding cars for 2014.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom is the epitome of style, luxury and elegance. On sale for over £300,000 the Rolls-Royce Phantom bridges the gap between classic and high performance cars as it possesses a 6.75 litre V12 engine, capable of accelerating to 60mph in less than six seconds before carrying on to its limited top speed of 150mph.
The Phantom is a truly luxurious and elegant car and is popular with millionaires all over the world. The Phantom also comes in a Drophead Coupe model for the newlyweds who want to feel the wind in their hair on their big day.
The Maybach is one of Mercedes’ most expensive car models standing at over £400,000 and is one of the most luxurious cars on the road today. The Maybach may not look like a ‘super-luxury’ car from the outside but once you are in it you are immediately greeted with a wealth of high-end mod cons including a panoramic glass roof that can turn from opaque to clear in the click of a button.
The Quattroporte is perhaps Maserati’s most brilliant car and according to Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson it is “one of the coolest cars ever made”. This Maserati is stylish, luxurious and incredibly comfortable, even when it hits its top speed of over 170mph. The Quattroporte comes in two specs featuring either a V6 or V8 engine built by Ferrari producing upwards of 500bhp. Maserati’s popular four door saloon is also often considered the perfect vehicle for being driven around in.
Aston Martin DB5
The DB5 is one of Aston Martin’s most iconic cars thanks to its use in Goldfinger by international man of mystery James Bond. Released in 1963, the DB5 hosts a 4.0litre engine capable of producing 282bhp with a top speed of 145mph. Just remember Bond fanatics that unlike in the film, your DB5 will be the standard model – that means no automatic machine guns embedded in the bonnet!
The Arnage is one of the finest production vehicles Bentley ever made. Introduced in 1998 using the same power setup Bentley have done for years, the Arnage houses the standard 6.75 litre V8 engine and weighs in at 2.5 metric tonnes. Featuring a beautiful magnolia and walnut veneer interior and super-soft carpets, the Arnage is one of the most elegant Bentleys available.
When it comes to hiring cars for your wedding day there is a multitude of stylish and luxurious vehicles on offer. We’re looking forward to looking back on the big trends of 2014 and seeing how brides and grooms are incorporating such impressive cars into their special day!
