The maturity of electric drive has prompted many automobile workshops to revive classics with electric drivetrain. Many classics with the likes of Land Rover Defender have seen electrification and you know what? Now, even Rolls-Royce too. Not just any Rolls-Royce, mind you. Classic Rolls-Royces.
Gran coupe. The one automotive colloquialism that I can never agree that is a thing. But what the hell, it’s just marketing mambo jumbos anyways. Since it is thing (not by my choosing. I digress), I will take it that it is understood to be a sporty vehicle of higher classes.
This is the 1939 Bentley Corniche. Not the classic Bentley that was lost to a wartime bombing raid in France during World War II. It was not even a restore mod, btw. It is a ground-up rebuild by Mulliner, the British marque’s coachbuilding division. What’s really impressive was, it was rebuilt based solely on the […]
What you are seeing here is an exclusive Bentley Flying Spur First Edition. The limited edition four-door Grand Tour will be revealed for the first time at the Elton John Aids Foundation Gala. It will be auctioned in support of the fund-raising charity at the inaugural Midsummer Party, Picozzi’s Villa Dorane on July 24, 2019, […]
I really don’t get it. A coupe is described as “a car with a fixed roof, two doors, and a sloping rear.” But here we are, a sedan from BMW calling itself a coupe, or in this case a Gran Coupe. We shall dispense with the inevitable luxury bits that comes with the 2020 BMW […]
Mercedes-Benz had a lot to show at this year’s Geneva Motor Show and among them was this, the Mercedes-AMG S65 Final Edition, the luxury performance that wrote the final page of the V12 S-Class.

Yup. This is it. The all-new eight generation Rolls-Royce Phantom luxury sedan, christened 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII. Nothing much here. It is just another specular car crafted with the rich in mind. The built will be without question, impeccable, or we dare say, the finest money can buy. Designed from the ground up and as […]
When getting your ride all chromed out was deemed insane, people thought why not matte paint job too? Since then, chrome or even gold-plating car is not a thing that wows anymore (well, at least not as much as before). It was the matte paint or wrap which was all the rage. Just when you […]
Forget about the run-of-the-mill Mercedes-Maybach S600. Wait. On a second thought, forget about Rolls-Royce rides too, because if you looking at the ultimate in luxury rides, new kid on the luxury car customisation, Canada-based Scaldarsi Motors, has just the right ride for you: the Emperor I. Based on the souped up Mercedes-Maybach by renowned tuner, […]
Volvo is not exactly synonymous with performance rides. Safety, for sure, but certainly, not in the performance department. Though they are by no means slouch in that aspect. However, the Swede automaker sure knows a thing or two about sporty looks, which is what its R-Design models are about. Today, another two rides join the […]
