Petra Ecclestone Receives Rolls Royce Ghost as Present

Some newlyweds do like to maybe splash above the limit and buy each other present here and there to show each other their love for one another however we don’t all get the luxury of receiving a £170,000 car. Petra Ecclestone new husband James Stunt bought her the new white Rolls and parked outside their hotel in Beverly Hills topped with a silver bow.

The 22 year old was over the moon with the present, which was parked right in front of her. The Rolls Royce was designed to be a smaller and more day to day car to the Rolls Royce Phantom.

Petra who undoubtedly has a lot of love for motor vehicles due to her father being the Formula One billionaire Bernie Ecclestone and he recently treated his daughter to a superb lavish wedding at a 15th century Odescalchi Castle in Italy which cost him almost £4million. She has settled into married life and received the Ghost as a gift.

She was also spotted around the area test driving a jet black Lamborghini however the couple couldn’t get above the 10mph mark due to the amount of traffic in the area.

Coleen Rooney Buys New Range Rover Sport

Coleen Rooney has certainly declared her love for the Range Rover models, as the young Wag has now bought another Range Rover 4x4 and has in fact bought over three versions of it in the past 4 years, it seems Coleen knows what she likes and she has now splashed out on the new Range Rover whilst Wayne Rooney was away scoring goals, Coleen was taking her delivery booking for her brand new Range Rover.

Coleen pulled up in her brand new Range Rover yesterday morning to use the cash machine at her local petrol station in Wilmslow, Cheshire. Wayne Rooney has not been shy in buying Coleen cars in the past when he bought his then fiancé a £80,000 silver Range Rover as a Christmas present. Wayne then bought a new Range Rover for £95,000 the black Overfinch Range Rover and he was so impressed with the vehicle he bought Coleen he went and bought himself one.

The pair is now proud owners to a fleet of cars worth more than £1.4 million including Bentley’s, BMW X5, Mercedes CLK, Cadillac Escalade, Chrysler 300C, Lamborghini Gallardo, Mercedes G55 AMG.

We wonder what the pair’s next purchase could be.

Mario Balotelli’s Maserati sports car part of prank

Manchester City’s young and talented star that is not shy of trouble is yet again as the centre of attention however not so much his fault this time. The Italian footballer who has been racking up parking fines worth over £10,000. We don’t think any footballers car has made the headlines as much as Mario Balotelli’s Maserati, this time it was to be jokes on Mario as the Manchester City Footballers car had a bag full of kippers planted inside of it for a two week period why the Manchester City stars toured the US.  The white Maserati sports car may have to be written off due to someone leaving a full bag of kippers inside the car before the Italian left the country.

When Balotelli’s returned he was met by a horrible stench of rotting fish inside his car when he opened the door. According to reports rotting fish had also been placed across his back leather seats contributing further to the stench which almost the Italian sick.

The smell now is so bad the insurance company are considering writing the car off as the smell may never leave the vehicle, as yet none of his team mates have owned up to the prank but Balotelli who is known for pulling such jokes has made his plans for revenge on his team mates and may hit back soon rather than later.

The Maserati car has hit the headlines all year around and has been impounded a number of 27 times for different parking offences however we may never see the Maserati seeing another parking offence after the kipper incident.

Chinese man has a Fork Lift Wedding

A bride and groom from China have done the unthinkable and have chosen a basket on the front of a forklift truck to travel to their wedding in style. Rather than travelling in style in a vehicle such as a Rolls Royce Phantom or Bentley Flying Spur the couple had a special meaning by travelling in the fork lift. They have always wanted to commemorate in the vehicle and it was the vehicle which bought them both together.

Forklift driver Kong Qing Yang met his wife Shen Likun when going to buy a forklift from the company she actually worked for, Shen Likun was working as a salesperson. After the initial meeting for the forklift at the company, love blossomed between the two and they decided to tie the knot. The couple did not want to forget how they met and why they married in the first place. The couple decorated a forklift truck and travelled to the village throwing lollies at the locals on the way who had lined up in the street to see them pass by.

The wedding used eight forklift trucks in total all of which travelled at a speed of 8mph. The wedding parade took several hours to complete and arrive at their ceremony, the bride and groom eventually married at 11:30am just over 3 hours after the groom set off from his house.

Prime Minister’s Limousine dinted in Riots

The Prime Minister Luxury driven limousine suffered a blow when visiting Salford last week just when the riots were taking place; the visit had been planned and was an official visit by the Prime Minister. The Jaguar XJ limo which was being driven by the official chauffeur to the Prime Minister David Cameron’s official chauffeur was being manoeuvred into position to quickly get the PM off after he visited the Lidl store which had been the target for the looters and attackers last week.

The chauffer however completely misjudged the height of the kerb and Jaguar XJ hit the top of the pavement and the PM jumped into the vehicle causing damage to the Jaguar XJ. A nearby Conservative official tried to warn the driver about hitting the kerb however it was too late and he made contact with the kerb, the Jag which is worth over £200,000 is now left with a big dent and a long scrape along the side of the paintwork on the passenger side of the limousine.

The Prime Minister seemed completely un aware of the incident and the driver quickly sped off to avoid the embarrassment which he had caused. The top of the range Jaguar is believed to have advanced security and bomb proof technology to make sure the Prime Minister Stays safe at all times. It isn’t quite as advanced as the Beast which President Obama is driven around in but it still holds quite a presence for the PM.

The Pope’s Old limousine expected to fetch over £250,000

The Pope’s 1964 Lincoln Continental Limousine was specifically adapted for the pope back in 1964 to carry him safely through the streets of New York when he visited the US. The limousine had exterior step plates and handrails for security with a raised seat for the Pontiff including a public address system. The limo also had a transparent rear section and removable roof which allowed the Pope to speak and address the thousands of people who came to visit him. The pope now days travel around in a bulletproof hybrid.

Three years later the limo was used to chauffeur Pope Paul IV and later it carried the astronauts from several Apollo missions including Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong through the streets of Chicago during ticket tape parades. This limo is certainly going to be a treasured item for collectors. The Pope’s limo is set to make a lot of money with the minimum estimate at £100,000.

The car is expected to sell between £250,000 and £300,000 in the next coming days, the vehicle could even sell for more depending on how bad the bidder wants this vehicle, and one thing is for sure this limousine could cause a bidding war.
