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.

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

Rolls-Royce Announces a New Dawn for Super-luxury Motoring. No, Seriously. It’s Called ‘Dawn’

The images you see is not the recently announced droptop from Rolls-Royce, though we hope very much that it will bear at least a tint of that sexy throwback design. The example you see here is the Silver Dawn, introduced in 1949 and used on 28 drophead bodies in the 50s. Loyal Rolls-Royce may also noted the departure from the usual supernatural naming, but the press release clearly reasoned that it is car “with a name that suggests the fresh opportunities that every new day holds – an awakening, an opening up of one’s senses and a burst of sunshine.” Well, in that case, we will take as the reason for a drophead as oppose to say, a coupe. While supernatural names sound cool, they are mostly reference to death and no automakers wish for that. Continue reading Rolls-Royce Announces a New Dawn for Super-luxury Motoring. No, Seriously. It’s Called ‘Dawn’

Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe Waterspeed Collection

Rolls-Royce has a quite a close and illustrious relation with watercrafts, and among the many, it was the power responsible for driving Sir Malcolm Campbell’s Bluebird K3 through a waterspeed record of 126.33 mph on Italy’s Lake Maggiore in 1937, and subsequently racing to 130.93 mph, still with the K3, at Lake Hailwil, Switzerland in 1938 and in 1939, clocking in at an amazing 141.74 mph with a K4 at Coniston Water. the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe Waterspeed Collection is the car specially crafted to pay homage to those remarkable acts by Sir Malcolm Campbell. inline with the Waterspeed Collection and the spirit of Bluebird, this latest Bespoke Collection from the British luxury marque wears a specially developed ‘Maggiore Blue’ paint job which has nine layers of paint on it, prior to being hand-sanded and powered lacquered.
