You probably think being me is a walk in the park, don’t you? From the outside, it seems like life is just dandy: jetting around to various properties, buying things that aren’t for sale and hours rife with substance abuse spent at the spa. Well, it’s not. I have enemies.
It’s always occurred to me that, of all of the car brands there are, popular songs seem to mention Rolls-Royce a disproportionate amount of times. It sounds like everybody who’s anybody wants to buy a big, blocky sedan with more amenities than your average hotel, and, boy, do they want to tell you about it.
While building your own Rolls-Royce in a display room, it has to be pesky not to know how it’ll look outside each of your 20 mansions next to the gold statue of yourself. But, fear not: Rolls-Royce has a lamp that emulates light from all around the globe, so you can see exactly how your paint choices will glisten.
Rolls-Royce is known for a lot of things, but daring technological weirdness generally isn’t one of them. That’s why it’s so surprising that they made an engine that, when described, seems like a string of the most unlikely adjectives you can link together: a Wankel with two separate rotors (but not a twin-rotor)…
A reader named Matthew with a rich Australian friend sent us these pictures of a Rolls-Royce in his rich friend’s luxury apartment complex. What makes these pictures notable is the thick, creamery irony they’re saturated in, involving a protective Rolls-Royce cage, and how that cage itself proved the car’s greatest…
When I look back to cars made over a hundred years ago and compare them to the cars that still bear the same names today, really they share nothing more except the badge on their noses. Rolls-Royce is one of the greatest examples of this.
While your head’s probably still spinning from trying to count all the heated surfaces in the 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII that came out today, one of our readers grabbed our best look yet at the company’s enormous upcoming SUV.
The eighth iteration of the Rolls-Royce Phantom was rolled out today with a red-carpet launch party and a suitably pompous press release proclaiming the car to have the “most silent” interior of anything on the road. It pretty much looks like the Rolls-Royce flagship you already know, but with a few new technological…
Remember, back in the late ‘90s-early 2000s, the X-Files was on this big ‘black oil’ overarching storyline, where there was some weird alien black virus goop that would pour out of infected people’s eyes? Well, Rolls-Royce seems to have decided that this is just the thing to sell incredibly expensive cars.
The Rolls-Royce Sweptail, a one-off coupe designed for a specific customer who likely has unfathomable amounts of cash, could be the most expensive new car ever sold at a reported $12.8 million. The car has been in the works since 2013, and, in all of its wildly expensive glory, is kind of strange looking.
For those not in the market for spectrally named vehicles with starting prices at over $300,000, the concept of a Rolls-Royce umbrella may be foreign. But the company has great pride in the rain shields it hides in its cars. They’re treated more like royalty than you or I will ever be.
Sweepstakes! Gotta love ‘em. Sure, in signing up for a contest, you’re giving the green light to receive reams of junk mail in the future, but so what! Prizes are cool and fun! And in 1990, as Donald Trump opened one of his later-bankrupted Atlantic City casinos, customers had a chance to enter the “Raja’s Riches”…
It’s hard to tell if the car turns you into an asshole, or if it just brings out the asshole in you.
Last week, I got into an accident.
When I moved into my current apartment about two years ago, I noticed the junkyard next door had a limousine. The driver-side window was missing, and the car’s exterior resembled what you’d expect if you imagined a limo beat to shit. It slightly resembled the one above, which is currently for sale on Craigslist.
The saga of Rolls-Royce’s stubborn refusal to call its Project Cullinan SUV an SUV continues on. Rolls calls it a “high-sided” and “all-terrain” vehicle and the mule is ready for its first public appearance.
What do you do with a two-ton, Old-Lady-Of-Porkinham-spec Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow? Build a drift car out of it, duh.
