Cannes Film Festival in a Dartz Prombron
Get noticed at Cannes - drive a huge armoured limo…
Posted: 29 Jul 2011
In the marina, we discover that there are some forms of transport that even a giant Russian SUV can't compete with, and on the far end of the jetty, a super-yacht waits to decant its owners into a waiting Rolls Phantom and Ghost, and not one but two McLaren SLR roadsters.
Back on the promenade, the premiere of the festival's eventual Palme d'Or winner, Terrence Malick's grandiose The Tree of Life, draws the stars out for the waiting horde. As it happens, we're dropping some old friends, film-maker Mark McQueen and producer James Mann, to a party. The Prombron is not ideal limo material, but an amusing foil to the fleets of dreary official Renaults.
