Rolls-Royce’s Idea Of Engine Maintenance Is A Swarm Of Tiny Robots

Michael Crichton’s Prey painted a grim picture of swarming robots. While grim, it presented a not so pleasant scenario, swarming tiny robots are probably the future and Rolls-Royce is one organization that shares this vision. The aircraft engine maker envision a swarm of collaborative miniature robots inserted into the engine to perform visual inspection of hard-to-reach areas. Each tiny robot measures around 10 millimeter in diameter and they will be deposited into the engine by another bold Rolls-Royce vision, a ‘snake’ robot called FLARE.

Honor Collaborating With Rolls-Royce On A Special Edition Smartphone

Well, what do you know? Huawei sub brand Honor is reportedly collaborating with British luxury car marque Rolls-Royce to release a special edition Honor Note 10 smartphone. Before you get all too wet about it, it probably will not have a pop-up Spirit of Ecstasy on it – if that’s what you were thinking. Regardless, a lone leak image is all it takes to let in on what to expect of this “Rolls-Royce” Phone: a shiny silver back cover as classy as the automaker itself.

Rolls-Royce’s Idea Of Flying Taxi Is One That Has Rotors That Folds Away

Lets face it. The Fifth Element kind of flying cars is not going to realize anytime soon. Instead, you are looking at more conventional “fly cars” such as this one proposed by Rolls-Royce. The aircraft engine maker unveiled this concept personal air transportation at Farnborough Airshow. As you can see, it is a VTOL, short for vertical take-off and landing, and it is electric, hence the acronym EVTOL. Rolls-Royce said its proposed EVTOL could be use as a personal transport, public transport, logistics and adaptable to military applications.

Rolls-Royce Cullinan Beckons You To Luxe Outside Of Urban Areas

When I saw the press release of Rolls-Royce much anticipated off-road capable luxury vehicle, Rolls-Royce Cullinan, I was taken aback. It was over 4,800 words long and as I continue to read it, it felt like I was scrolling through the mythical infinite scroll. And you know what this means. This means, the British luxury maker is dead serious about its off-road adventure. The brand is excited about this vehicle like a father thrilled by his first born.

This Is The New Rolls-Royce Phantom And It Is Spectacular Inside Out

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 expected, it promised to delivery both luxury and performance. It is worthy to note that Rolls-Royce, a BMW Group company, is a little snob when it comes to the company’s unequivocal dedication to, well, dedication. Continue reading This Is The New Rolls-Royce Phantom And It Is Spectacular Inside Out

Jon Olsson’s Latest Ride, A Custom Wraith, Is A Very Angry 810HP Beast

Affectionately called “George the Rolls,” this “slightly” custom Rolls-Royce Wraith coupe is Swedish skier, adventurer, car enthusiast and apparently now, a YouTube star, Jon Olsson‘s latest ride. Jon claims it as slightly custom, but to us, this thing is anything but lightly customized. Really. Just take a look at it. It is not quite recognizable as a Rolls, much less a Wraith, anymore. Hell, it doesn’t even sounds like a Rolls! But all in a good way, of course. Under the hood, the stock V12 twin-turbo motor was massaged to deliver 810 horses by The Netherlands’s Absolute Motors and it was dyno-tested as a proved that it is now a living, breathing 810HP beast. Continue reading Jon Olsson’s Latest Ride, A Custom Wraith, Is A Very Angry 810HP Beast

One-off Rolls-Royce Sweptail Is Easily The Prettiest Spirit of Ecstasy Ever

The sad truth about exclusivity is, not many things money can buy is truly exclusive and this is especially true for automobiles. Even if you are rich enough to buy a Bugatti, someone else who are equally or more well off will have one, if not several. But thanks to Rolls-Royce coachbuilt, exclusivity can be guaranteed – that’s if you are out-of-this-world rich, of course, and the one-off Rolls-Royce Sweptail coachbuilt 2-seater coupé you see here is one such example. Make no mistake, my friends. The Sweptail you see here is not your usual bespoke Spirit of Ecstasy ride. Continue reading One-off Rolls-Royce Sweptail Is Easily The Prettiest Spirit of Ecstasy Ever

Here’s Why The Iconic Rolls-Royce Hood Ornament Never Got Stolen

A handful of automobiles sport hood ornament. Mercedes-Benz once had those and so did Jaguar and few others, but not many have them anymore, likely because an object at tip of the hood is a target of mischief. However, for Rolls-Royce, the Spirit of Ecstasy has remained a design fixture in every vehicle the British luxury marque have rolled out and apparently, never been stolen? Well, at least not in modern times and by modern times, we mean from 2004 onwards. As it turns out, Silver Lady is protected against theft by a brilliant mechanism.

Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100: A Vision Perfect That Won’t be Coming Soon

When it comes to concept, British luxury car maker Rolls-Royce hardly dished out anything too otherworldly, but that changes when the marque design team were tasked to conceptualize a ride for the future. The concept, dubbed Rolls-Royce VISION NEXT 100, clearly indicates Rolls-Royce vision for the next 100 years, which essentially means a zero-emission, autonomous luxury ride with an extraordinary ‘loud’ aesthetic – a look that is both very Rolls-Royce-ish and future-forward looking, or as Rolls-Royce puts it, “a no-compromise, fully autonomous, coachbuilt, personalised vision to those customers who wish for an emotional attachment to their car.” Continue reading Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100: A Vision Perfect That Won’t be Coming Soon

Rolls-Royce Creates A Luxurious Cocktail Hamper, Wants $46,328 For It

If you drive a Rolls-Royce, chances are you are up for the finer things in life. Finer things such as a good class of cocktail, perhaps? And if so, you will be elated, if overwhelmingly impressed, by the British luxury car maker’s Cocktail Hamper. While it is called a ‘cocktail hamper’, it is really a very lavish portable cocktail bar. Coming from Rolls-Royce, you can be assured that no details are spared, including subtle connection to the automaker’s rides. Nope. There the box isn’t in the shape of Rolls-Royce motor car’s front end, though that will be super cool. Continue reading Rolls-Royce Creates A Luxurious Cocktail Hamper, Wants $46,328 For It
