7 signs that you should lease your next car

Car Key with Leasing Tag on WhiteYou might be in a tight spot financially and you’re considering a lease over finance. Or perhaps you want the latest luxury vehicle, but at a lower price (you can check out deals for these on Vantage Leasing).  Whatever your reason for considering a car lease, here are a few more signs that this could be the right route for you…

 

1. You have no deposit

One of the best reasons for leasing a vehicle is if you’re missing that initial down-payment. You might have a healthy monthly income and credit score, but if you haven’t managed to scrape that deposit together, leasing is a fast-track to the car of your dreams.

 

2. You have low monthly income

Similarly, another reason to lease is if your monthly income isn’t high enough to consider a finance deal. The instalments for renting a vehicle are often far cheaper that on finance loans, even for the latest models. Read more »

Italdesign to debut the first of five production-ready ZEROUNO supercars at Salon Privé

Leading British luxury automotive event, Salon Privé, is delighted to host the UK debut of the production-ready carbon fibre Italdesign Automobili Speciali Zerouno supercar from 31st August to 2nd September at Blenheim Palace. With only five cars set to be produced by the end of 2017, this may be the only time that car enthusiasts will be able to see the supercar in production guise this year.  What a car this looks.  We love it and cannot wait to see it.  What do you think?

 

Designed, engineered and produced by Italdesign, the all-new ZEROUNO supercar’s body and modular chassis are made from carbon fibre and powered by a 5.2-litre V10. The all-new ZEROUNO has race car performance for the road and propels itself to a top speed of 205 mph and 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds, which is created, in part, by a seven-speed, dual-clutch gearbox.

Win a pair of tickets to the 2017 Concours of Elegance

enter-to-winThis really is 1 of our very favourite classic car events, and we would never what to miss it.  So it gives us great pleasure to be offering 1 of our lucky readers a pair to complimentary tickets to this years event.  So be quick and enter now.

Some would say this is a unique event, some would say it’s a “not to be missed” event, some would say it’s the best classic car event in the UK, if not the world, and we believe it would be hard to argue against this.  I can tell you one thing, of all the events that we attend yearly, and in all our life (to date) this event is one I will bend over backwards to always attend.  The venues are unparalleled (properties of the British Royal family), the cars on show exquisite (and often so rare only 1 exists), the event is not overcrowded (well to date at least), it is just a wonderful event and day out.

Goodwood Festival of Speed opens with another sky-sweeping sculpture

Goodwood-festival-of-speed-LogoAs the sun comes up on the 25th Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard this morning, early visitors will be treated to another iconic creation by sculptor Gerry Judah, this year jointly presented by Goodwood and Formula 1® in celebration of the extraordinary life and career of Bernie Ecclestone.

The jaw-dropping work is in recognition of the ‘The Five Ages of Ecclestone’ (see below); five defining eras of Bernie’s career, as a driver, manager, team owner, impresario and quite simply as a legend of the sport. Each age is portrayed on the Central Feature by a different car, glinting high up on 5 arms, shooting out of a perfect, white circle.

This year?s sky-sweeping Central Feature by sculptor Gerry Judah is in celebration of the extraordinary life and career of Bernie Ecclestone.   The jaw-dropping work has been conceived by Judah, Goodwood and Formula 1® in recognition of the 'The Five Ages of Ecclestone'; five defining eras of Bernie?s career, as a driver, manager, team owner, impresario and quite simply as a legend of the sport. Each age is portrayed on the iconic Central Feature by a different car, glinting high up on 5 arms, shooting out of a perfect, white circle.

“Coming up with a sculpture for Goodwood is always a challenge”, said Judah. “They have to be different, dynamic and dangerous, as motorsport itself. This year is no exception given we are celebrating an individual, a phenomenon, and what better way than producing a firecracker.”
