The 5 Worst Wedding Cars

Often on someone’s big day the first thing the guests see is the Wedding Car, some guests might even go as far to say it’s the most important part of the day… With this in mind, it’s surely important to get it right. Sadly, some people don’t get it right and we think we’ve found the 5 worst possible Wedding Car ideas and suggestions around:

Fiat 500 

People say that size doesn’t matter with a car all the time, and they’re right in most cases, a nifty little car can pack a good punch. Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean the same sentiment applies to wedding car hire. It’s all very well and good being compact, but issues may arise if it’s just that bit too compact to fit the brides dress into.

Caterham R300

No one can deny that the the Catherham does what it says on the tin, it’s great for a track day, but probably not the most suitable car for your wedding day. With the absence of a windscreen or roof, but an average 0-60 mph of 3.1 seconds, it’s likely the bride will lose her bouquet before she has chance to throw it if she’s arriving to the church in this. Indeed the same could be said for the grooms top-hat.

VW Camper van

A hero of popular culture, there’s many people who would love their own VW camper, however many wouldn’t care for it on their special day perhaps. Saying that though this might be a shrewd maneuver when it comes wedding car hire to cut down on the costs of the honeymoon afterwards, it could mean two for the price of one!

Reliant Robin

The Robin is impractical for many purposes and occasions, a wedding must surely be high on that list. Having only three wheels the potential instability could pose issues if there’s a big dress involved, and there would always be the thought that a Reliant Robin, of all cars, would be on your wedding photos… Doesn’t sound very fairy tale does it?

Delorean DMC-12

Many people say they wish they could go back in time after their wedding day, unfortunately for some it’s only in fiction that this car would allow you to do such a thing. Not only might you be let down by that misunderstanding, you might also look a bit daft getting out of the famous winged doors in your morning suit.

Quirky Wedding Cars

Your wedding car is a statement, it needs to show your personality as well as allowing you to arrive in style on your big day.

Whilst it’s traditional for the bride to be driven in a car to the wedding venue and then the newlyweds to be driven to the reception, there’s no reason why the groom shouldn’t arrive in style either.

There are plenty of quirky wedding car ideas that range from the classy to the ridiculous, below is our top 5 quirky wedding car ideas.

If none of these take your fancy, you can hire a wedding car from PB Supercars to keep the prestige in your arrival.

American Classic

Synonymous with Miami Beach and gaudiness, with huge wings and outrageous colours. These cars are perfect for adding a great big dollop of personality to your arrival.

Usually a Cadillac or a Chevrolet, these massive cars will have plenty of room for your dress to fit, not to mention your bridesmaids, Dad, flowers, flower girls, paige boys and kitchen sink.

British Classic

These cars conjur up images of goggles, white scarves blowing in the wind and leather driving gloves, but a classic English car like the Beauford Tourer is perfect for an elegant country wedding.

They also look great in pictures on the grounds, where you can pretend to be Lord or Lady of the Manor with your new spouse – at least for the day.

Vintage Emergency Service Vehicles

If you or your partner enjoys a touch of the dramatic, maybe you’ve never missed an episode of Casualty or you’re a genuine Doctor/Police Officer, these are the perfect vehicles to arrive in.

You don’t need to come blaring up to the venue with blues and sirens blaring, but these vehicles are unusual enough to turn heads whilst being a great talking point for the rest of the day.

A bus

Yeah that’s right, a bus. But not just any bus – there are plenty of options to hire a vintage bus for your wedding party, which has the added bonus of getting the entire bridal party to the venue at the same time as well as transferring the bride, groom and the rest of the wedding party to the reception.

If you want some privacy as a newlywed couple in the journey to the reception, this probably isn’t the option for you. Unless you bagsy the top of the double decker as your area and let everyone else squash in downstairs. Ding!

TV/Movie Theme

Are you both TV nuts? Are weekend-long Netflix marathons a thing in your house? Then maybe choose a classic car from popular culture to hire to take you to get hitched.

Everything from the General Lee of Dukes of Hazzard fame to the yellow reliant robin from Only Fools and Horses is available to rent to wedding parties these days. And they’re guaranteed to cause a stir!

Are Electric Supercars the Future?

Supercars are synonymous with speed, it’s why we love them so much. But they’re also known for their pollution and poor fuel economy, making them the toys of the rich and famous that are more for show rather than a trip to Asda.

The rise of the electric car continues to gather momentum, with many companies like Nissan and Toyota now producing many hybrid or fully electric cars at reasonable prices: but is there a place in the auto-electric world for the supercar?

In short – yes.

Top 5 Supercar Maintenance Tips

Owning a supercar is nothing like owning a normal car, and if you’re lucky enough to drive something like a Lamborghini Gallardo then you’ll want to do everything that you can to take good care of it and preserve its value. Here are our top 5 supercar maintenance tips to help you look after your pride and joy.

1. Keep your supercar clean

Face it, your supercar is going to attract attention, so you may as well make sure that it looks its best at all times. But keeping your supercar clean isn’t just about the aesthetics: it also helps protect the finish from damage caused by dirt and grit from the road.

Unless you have a Range Rover or other off-roading 4×4, the first thing you can do to keep your car clean is minimise how dirty it gets by avoiding driving it in adverse weather conditions. When it comes to cleaning your supercar steer away from automatic car washes. Instead, have your supercar valeted by a company who you can trust to take the same level of care that you would or take the time to clean your supercar yourself.

2. Know the service schedule

Your supercar will come with a service schedule, but it’s up to you to keep an eye on the trip meter and take the car in to the garage when the time comes. Scheduled services can range from an oil change to a complete engine re-fit, and are never particularly cheap. Servicing a supercar requires specialist tools so make sure that you always use an approved and trustworthy mechanic.

Tyres are one of the biggest costs your will occur in maintaining a supercar. Not only do they wear out quickly, but replacements can be very costly. Check the condition of your tyres regularly and avoid the temptation to carry on running a set of tyres after they are due to be replaced.

3. Keep a detailed paper-trail

Make sure that you keep a detailed paper-trail of any and all work that you have done on your supercar, as if you ever wish to sell your vehicle having a complete set of paperwork will help you get the full value of your car. Second hand car buyers will want to know the history of the vehicle so that they can make sure that it has been well looked after.

4. Drive your supercar regularly

Supercars like the Lamborghini Gallardo or Lamborghini Huracan are works of art, but they’re designed to be driven, not just looked at. Leaving a supercar in a garage for long periods of time is a recipe for high maintenance costs and the disappointment of having it not start up when you finally decide to take it for a spin.

Not only will the battery in your supercar go flat if you don’t drive it for an extended period of time but the fuel, oil, and lubricants in the engine can start to degrade. If you are not able to drive your supercar for a little while, if the weather is too poor for example, make sure that you at least turn the engine over from time to time.

5. Rent a supercar instead!

Owning a supercar is everyone’s dream come true, but can be extremely stressful and extremely expensive. Renting a supercar is a great way to get all the benefits of driving a supercar without the hassle of actually owning one. Not only that, but you can hire the supercar of your dreams, say, a Lamborghini Huracan, for a fraction of the price that it would cost you to buy and maintain one.

Aston Martin DB9 – The Classiest Ride

The Aston Martin DB9 is an example of British-built supercars at their finest. Not only has it become a symbol of how great supercars can be, but it also signalled the start of a revival for Aston Martin. The impressive range of cars that Aston Martin have released over the past few years would not have seen the light of day if it wasn’t for the DB9.

What makes the DB9 enduringly popular since its release has to be its astonishing good looks. It remains one of the classiest looking cars that have ever existed. Despite its age, many people still say that they would rather drive a DB9 than a more modern supercar.

Don’t let its age fool you into thinking that the DB9 is passed it though. It is still luxurious and blisteringly fast, faster even that the Aston Martin V12 Vantage. Despite being one of the superior cars that Aston Martin have made, it is also priced less than the Vanquish, the presumptive flagship car for Aston Martin. It’s no surprise then that when it comes to Aston Martin rental, the DB9 is the highest in demand.

The interior of the DB9 certainly adds to this supercar’s mystique. From the pure crystal starter button to the choice of either a teak, cherrywood, or bamboo interior, it is pretty clear from the start that the inside of a DB9 is a wonderful place to be.

Sadly, there will be no more updates to this flagbearer of British supercars. In 2015, Aston Martin released what it referred to as the ultimate and final version in the DB9 GT. This version has a V12 engine with 540bhp, a redesigned interior, and updated technology. With a more powerful engine, this is the swansong that the DB9 deserves.

If you wanted to relive the good old days with the DB9, then you need to look no further than the DB9 Cabriolet and the DB9 Coupe. These cars truly symbolise the days when the DB9 ruled the roads. Even though it may be being left behind by recent releases by Mercedes and Ferrari, chances are that supercars will never be this classy again.

If you wanted to experience driving this supercar for yourself, then why not check out our Aston Martin DB9 rental services now at PB Supercars.

Audi R8 – Comfort With a Racing Edge

Just under 9 years ago Audi shocked the automotive industry when they announced that they, a car company that is notorious for a luxury large range of family saloons cars and hatchbacks would be producing and selling a supercar that would compete with the chief’s of the performance car industry, the Lamborghini’s, Porsches, Ferraris and so on.

What made the Audi R8 special on release was that it was £60,000 cheaper than its competitors, it lacked jaw-dropping style and was slightly less powerful but for the price of £90,00 the car proved to be a serious contender. The 2007 Audi R8 meant business and filled a large gap in the market, a fast, low-priced supercar with advanced technology. The Audi R8 was ahead of its time and Audi stuck with the same styling, chassis, suspension and much more until 2014. The only problem with this car is that is was at the bottom range of performance cars, some people even insisted it was not a supercar, it got some grief and criticism as all cars do but it was a great success. In 2015 however, the R8 evolved completely.  It kept the same price tag, but the performance, technology and styling all got an upgrade.

When we say an “upgrade” that would be an understatement, this car literally has the same engine and chassis as the Lamborghini Huracan, which is almost double the price of the Audi R8. The R8 has a 0-60 time of 3.2 seconds which is also the exact same 0-60 time as the Huracan! The two share the same V10 5.2 litre engine which gives the R8 a top speed of 205 mph. So in terms of speed, this car sounds like a bullet train. But what about the handling and drive? Well don’t worry it’s good news, Audi has showered this car with carbon fibre, giving it a total weight of just 1,555kg which is lighter than a Vauxhall Astra. The steering is said to be extremely precise and is very predictable and easy to handle round the corners while really making use of the power of the v10 engine.

From everything you’ve heard so far you are probably thinking this car is a die-hard race car, made for those with a strong heart and stomach. Used only for the weekend’s on the track. But you wrong, in comfort mode this car can be used as a daily driver, it is comfortable quiet and can achieve up to 23 mpg when driving around the city. In comfort mode, you can drive this car like it is you an average city car. But take it out of comfort mode and into sports mode and put your foot down, and you have one of the fastest cars available on the road today.

You can experience this stunning piece of machinery yourself with our Audi R8 hire at PB Supercars.
