Insiders | Wedding Car Wonderland
The right wedding car can turn your wedding day from a great day into a day you’ll cherish forever.
Please let me introduce myself. My name is Tom Howard, and I run ‘The Gentleman Racer UK’, a brand dedicated to sourcing your most luxurious lifestyle possibilities.
Below, I’ll take you through our best recommendations for THE wedding car, ranging from glorious classics made famous on the Silver screen, to modern day supercars designed to make an instant impact. We’ll start with probably the most iconic car in the World. The Aston Martin DB5.
Aston Martin DB5
Made famous by James Bond, the Silver Birch Aston Martin DB5 is about as iconic as it gets. Made in 1964, the DB5 (Named after its creator, Sir David Brown) is the epitome of elegance and class. Not the easiest car to drive, however its 4-litre Inline 6 engine will certainly turn heads as you make your way to the chosen destination. Be sure to have your guests outside and waiting so you can make your entrance as a proper Bond Girl!
The Jaguar XKSS has a remarkable back story. Somewhat of a unicorn car, only 9 remain in existence worldwide making this particularly special. Bought by the likes of style icon Steve McQueen, and with no real roof, you’ll be on full display al fresco - but doing so in one of the finest coach built cars ever to leave Great Britain.
It doesn’t get more palatial for the road than the Rolls-Royce Phantom. At nearly 6 metres in length, the Phantom is the ultimate expression of luxury. More hotel for the road than automobile, the Phantom has long been used as the go-to for the rich and famous with each iteration becoming more luxurious and plush than the last. If instant impact is what you’re going for, then the Phantom is hard to top!
The choice of Queen Elizabeth II. Bentley is a staple in the Luxury Automobile sector. From leather sourced high up in the Himalayas (where mosquitos cant bite the skin) to the recognisable flying B-logo, Bentley will long be synonymous with the elite. A perfect car therefore to take you to and from your wedding and onto the Honeymoon.
Mercedes SL Gullwing
Picture this. Driving in with the ‘Gullwing’ doors wide open, your dress gently flowing out of the sculpted bodywork, and onlookers gazing in disbelief at the sight. It can only be the Mercedes 300SL Gullwing! Easily the most beautiful car to leave Germany, 1952 was certainly a year of style, and the Gullwing remains one of the prettiest cars available for your Wedding day.
Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake
One of only 99 Italian styled Aston Martins, this car will fit perfectly into your special day. Featuring design cues from the legendary Zagato design house, it follows a lengthy lineage of special edition Aston Martins that have graced collections worldwide. The rarity of these cars has ensured they have instant WOW factor, and the only concern you’ll need is that they don’t upstage you on the day!
Lamborghini Aventador SV
More race car than road car, the Super Veloce is a thing of menace. Want your wedding to be a bit more edgy? Then leave the classics at home and push for the Lamborghini Aventador. The scissor doors will ensure your arrival is seen, and the screaming 730 horsepower V12 will ensure you’re heard before you arrive! Not many cars have the same level of road presence, so if it’s looks you’re searching for, the Aventador SV is the one to go for.
