​Unbridled Opulence Has A Name And It's The Silk-Coated 'Serenity'

Rolls-Royce will do damn near anything to its cars given enough cash. That's bred a fair amount of tasteless monstrosities, so Rolls seems to be swaying owners in a more classy direction, and it starts with over 30 feet of hand-woven silk. » 3/02/15 7:55pm 3/02/15 7:55pm

Rolls-Royce Will Make Your Car Ugly As Fuck If You Want It

It's been commonly said that la crème-da-la-crème of carmakers of the world will build you anything you want, as long as you have the money.

​Rolls-Royce Is Making An SUV But Won't Call It An SUV

Rolls-Royce has finally confirmed that it's making an SUV. Except it's not an SUV. They're calling it a "high-bodied car" that "can cross any terrain." That certainly sounds SUVish, no? » 2/17/15 8:30pm 2/17/15 8:30pm

At Last! A Rolls-Royce Designed For Dogs

Personally, I'd take the latter option, as it offers some engaging ball-licking opportunities as well. So, if you're a dog, heads up: Rolls-Royce has a concept » 2/17/15 5:45pm 2/17/15 5:45pm

Rolls-Royce Once Sued A Company For Making Beetles Look Like Their Cars

Have you ever bought a Rolls-Royce? Specifically, have you ever bought a strangely small Rolls-Royce that had kind of bad paint, a headliner ripped all to hell, and desperately needed a muffler for, oh, about $1100? If so, my friend, then I'm afraid you've been had, because that wasn't a real Rolls at all! Luckily,… » 2/06/15 2:40pm 2/06/15 2:40pm

The World At The End Of 2014: A 2CV Costs More Than A Rolls

I'm not exactly sure what this says about our world, but I feel like it's an indicator of something important. Right at this moment, the current state of human life on Earth has progressed to a point where a 2-cylinder Citroën 2CV costs $10,000 more than a long-wheelbase Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. This is meaningful,… » 12/29/14 9:40pm 12/29/14 9:40pm

Test Drive: 2015 Rolls Royce Ghost Series II

When is a car not a car? An odd question, but appropriate for the buyer who views an automobile as something other than mere transportation. How do you celebrate success, indulge your personal sense of style, and insure that your entrance on the world's stage is grand? At what point is a car's competition a piece of… » 10/16/14 12:29pm 10/16/14 12:29pm

This $600K Rolls-Royce Has A City Carved Into Its Interior

This Guy Just Bought The Most (And Most Expensive) Rolls Royces Ever

Some things in life are so terrible, so awful, so delightfully vulgar that they go full-circle, and become great. The movie Starship Troopers, for example, or a Fluffernutter sandwich.

Rolls-Royce Sponsors The Most Competitively Adorable Racing Team Ever

I know the last thing these kids want to be is cute. They're a racing team, dammit, and they're here to kick ass on the racetrack and eat Pop Rocks. And nobody's seen Pop Rocks in years. I respect that. Even so, I can't help but look at that team photo and feel my squee gland secrete awwwrotonin. » 7/17/14 7:49pm 7/17/14 7:49pm

One Of The World's Poorest Countries Is Getting A Rolls-Royce Dealer

The average per capita income in Cambodia is $1,000. A Rolls-Royce Phantom is 470 times as much. Would it be smart for Rolls-Royce to open a showroom in Cambodia? Yes — and there's a reason why they're doing so. » 6/09/14 10:10am 6/09/14 10:10am

What It's Like Driving (And Being Driven In) A 1926 Rolls Town Car

There's probably no better visual metaphor for the class structure than the traditional Town Car. Driver exposed to the elements up front for all to see, the wealthy owner carefully installed in a cushioned jewel box in back. The Petersen has a great Town Car exhibit now, and, even better, they let me use one for an… » 5/06/14 12:30pm 5/06/14 12:30pm
