R33 Limo Service
First impressions are everything. So when you arrive in a luxury vehicle, that's plus points for you. A flashy sports car, even more stars. But a stretch limousine from R33's Limo Service - now THAT is a statement.
"With our extensive experience as an importer of luxury vehicles, It was almost natural for us to branch out into this line of business," explains Raymond Ronquillo, R33's CEO. "We saw that the market needed such a service, and since we had the knowhow and the means through R33, we said, why not?", he adds.
Want to be a rockstar for a day? Party like you've never had before? Arrive on the red carpet worthy of the paparazzi? A limo, whether it be R33's stretched Hummer H2, Cadillac Escalade or Lincoln Town Car, completes the experience like nothing else can. It's the icing on the cake, the olive in a vodka martini or the Walther PPK in James Bond's arsenal.
Before recently though, limos have been a rare sight in the country - even the official vehicle of the President of the Philippines (an armored Mercedes S600) - isn't a stretch. So just imagine how utterly cool it would be to arrive in a vehicle that not even the highest official of the land can ride in - an experience that the R33 Limo Service wants to make available to any who're interested to give it a go.
"Our goal is to make limos accessible to more people, and not just diplomats, politicians, businessmen, and the like," says Ronquillo. "In the States, people can rent limos for special occasions, and that's the kind of experience we want to bring to the Philippines," he adds.
And Raymond Ronquillo knows his cars - the R33 Limo Service operates under the R33 brand, which represents one of the biggest and most prominent importers of premium vehicles in the country.
R33's stable of stretch limos is impressive, to say the least. The fleet includes a 9-12 seater Cadillac Escalade; a Lincoln Town Car that also has 9-12 seats; and a massive 20-22 seater Hummer H2. The first two come in classic black, while the H2 is a striking pearl white. The rental fee is Php16,000 for the first two hours and Php5,000 for each succeeding hour (within Metro Manila). It covers a professional chauffeur and fuel which, considering the bulk of the car, is significant. Each vehicle comes prepped for any party as it is fully-equipped with a state-of-the-art entertainment system, an LCD TV with a DVD player, LED and fiber-optic lights, a mini bar, and a complimentary bottle of chilled Martini Asti champagne.
