A big THANK YOU to our friend Andrew Birbeck from the magazine “Open Skies” (the “inflight” magazine of Emirates Airlines) for putting us and our “babies” in the spotlight… Open Skies is read each months by more than 2,3 millions readers in the world!!!
We are proud to appear in this beautiful series of “enthusiastic entrepreneurs portraits” … It matches us perfectly!!!
It’s more than a year ago that we have rented our Citroën DS Convertible “Chapron” to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for the shooting of their new movie “By The Sea”, therefore we were getting quite impatient to know what place they had given to our “baby”…
To say the very least… We are not disappointed!!! From the opening crédits our “Déesse” is quite simply omnipresent!!! Afterwards, it accompanies them during the whole movie until the ending crédits where “Brad and Angie” let their complicity come out… Behind the wheel of our DS!!!
Many clients and friends have asked for it, you can now follow all Rent A Classic Car’s news “in real time” on our Facebook page!!!
“On the menu” of this page, the latest additions to our “fleet”, the ongoing restauration projects in our “garage museum”, photos and videos of our “babies” and our “rallies”, coverage of the events that our “classics” are entering and above all many beautiful “car stories” from the French Riviera…
Join us, post your own classic car photos, tell us what “novelty” you would like to see in the “collection”… Your wishes may very well be granted!
La Mini Moke de RACC sera bientôt à la TV … Avec Georges Pernoud au volant !!! L’équipe de Thalassa était dans l’Estérel ces derniers jours pour le tournage d’une prochaine émission et ils ont choisi notre Mini Moke pour parcourir les “roches rouges” de la “Corniche d’Or” …Quoi de plus naturel puisque la “Moke” est l’une des “classiques” les plus emblématique de la Côte d’Azur … Même Brigitte Bardot en avait une à la Madrague !!!Après avoir été la “Moke des plages” du Fairmont l’été dernier notre Moke continue sa “vie de star”, c’est tout à fait mérité car il s’agit peut-être d’une des “classiques” les plus sympathiques pour parcourir la French Riviera …
It will be a few more weeks before the 2016 “season” really starts… So in order to wait patiently we have selected some of your most beautiful photos “on a mission” on the French Riviera behind the wheel of our “babies”!!!
It’s Laurent Mancini (co-founder and host of the “Belles Classiques” weblog…) who has produced this very beautiful presentation in the fashion of a “James Bond” movie (Sean Connery era, of course…).
It’s all in there: Monty Norman and John Barry’s music theme, fantastic photos of our “babies” in the most beautiful places of the French Riviera, our “garage museum” in Nice, and you of course… Behind the wheel!!!
Thanks to Nice Matin we have already seen some “stolen” photos from the Hackettshooting with Pierce Brosnan and our Mercedes 250 SL (see here).
The advertisment campaign has now officially started and our “Pagoda” is no less than right on the cover of the “Autumn and winter Style Guide” from the prestigious British fashion brand, entitled “The leading Man”!!! (which fits perfectly Pierce Brosnan…).
The photos are gorgeous, actually it’s a true “style bible” for all Gentlemen Drivers…
When Fandango films contacted us we were far from suspecting that our Porsche 356 Speedster would be the star of a sequence from the number one reality TV show of VoxNow, the German TV channel!!!
“Mieten, kaufen, whonen” is a reality TV show dedicated to… Real Estate!!! The pitch, buy or sell a property in front of the cameras, and there all is fair… One of the busty candidates had chosen our Speedster to impress her client and sell him a dream property in Cannes.
Drive on the Croisette to the “flat four” music, private beach and “glamorous look” … What a pleasure to see our Porsche 356 Speedster “in good hands”!!!
When Marine Berry from the Metropole Hotel in Monaco contacted us we have immediatelyadhered to her project “Metropole Men – Metropole Women“, a serie of photograhs toincarnate the “glamour” of the hotel (who is also welcoming the famous “l’Atelier” of Joël Robuchon …).
Above all, among the first “Metropole Men” were Charles and Arthur Pic, Arthur beeing the only Frenchman in Formule 1!!! You can imagine that we have been more than happy to lend him our “Pony” for a tour in Monaco …
Classic cars are everywhere nowadays… Even where you are not expecting them!
Thus when a journalist from the English FHM got in touch with us for a project of article about the “French Riviera” we were a bit skeptical?
We were rather picturing them in a Lamborghini Gallardo or an Audi R8? However it’s our 1967 Mercedes 250 SL “Pagoda” that Matt and Stuart picked to test night-clubs between Saint-Tropez and Monaco … What a good taste!!!
