This video isn’t particularly new, but I’d not encountered it before. It’s a promo for Mutec, a company that modifies expensive cars into even more expensive cars, and it seems they also make them bulletproof. Here you can watch them shoot the crap out of a Rolls-Royce Phantom, and it’s weirdly serene.
Have you ever wondered why you don’t see people wearing Rolls Royce’s hood ornaments dangling from a necklace? It’s because the Spirit of Ecstasy, as the hood ornament is obnoxiously called, is protected by a brilliantly over-engineered mechanism that causes it to retract and disappear if tampered with.
What’s the going rate for a human life? Depending on a hostage’s citizenship, their employer, and their personal wealth, the ransom asked for can climb into the millions. Half a million is good money in a country with a per capita annual income of $600. Piracy, so often relegated to history books or theme-park…
Custom car shop Vitesse AuDessus and an outfit called Bengala Automotive are now making carbon fiber body kits for the current Rolls-Royce lineup. Every bolt-on body part is remade from a “compressed carbon matrix,” anything else gets a stick-on. The company is also claiming the first “forged carbon fiber wheels.”
The Rolls-Royce Wraith weighs 5,380 pounds, or roughly as much as a small moon. Rolls-Royce, despite our pleas and admonishments, thinks it’s a good idea to take that much mass around the Nürburgring. Now see it in all its wallowing glory, and hear its tires scream.
“It’s no secret that the future belongs to self-aware, autonomous vehicles,” Rolls-Royce writes. So forget your frets about the next 100 years, the 103EX has a plan for us. And also the closest thing to “square wheels” of any car ever.
Rolls Royce, the uber-luxurious automaker who has referred to its products as motorcars since 1904, is finally going to drop its first true concept car ever this year.
The Phantom VII was introduced over 13 years ago and is now approaching the end of its production. Its successor is getting an all new aluminum spaceframe, but the Phantom Coupé and the Drophead Coupé will not be renewed.
Rampage time? Rampage time.
It’s almost 2016, which means, if my math is correct, 1916 will be exactly one century ago. There were plenty of cars in 1916, and, generally, they did the same thing that cars do today: get your ass from one place to another without some smug horse all up in your business. Car technology has evolved dramatically,…
Rory Reid is the Editor-In-Chief of British car/tech site Recombu, a TV presenter and apparently a pretty talented poetry speaker (singer?). Here’s his review of the Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II. As a poem. That sort of seems like a song.
Many new cars have a system where you can hand-write on a touch screen and the infotainment system will read the letters. The new Rolls-Royce takes this to a new, globalized level.
The new Rolls-Royce Dawn is a convertible. Does it have a retractable hard top, the supposed high point in convertible technology? Hell no! it’s all fabric, because soft tops are true luxury.
English investigators are treating a recent blaze that destroyed hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of supercars as arson, according to reports.
“Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has contributed to the myth and legend of the contemporary music scene since the birth of Rock & Roll.” That’s the first sentence of the latest Rolls press release.
The only thing I like more than Rolls-Royce cars and its branding is a proper Rolls-Royce press release. This one is about the ‘Wraith – Inspired by Fashion’, so buckle up!
The latest Rolls-Royce series, the Phantom Limelight, comes with what it calls Ladies’ and Gentleman’s panniers, plus the most comfortable rear seats your butt has ever encountered. Anybody can buy a Maybach, but to get this, you’ll need to hurry because RR is only make 25 of them.
If you’re out and about and see a sinister-looking, black Rolls-Royce Phantom with a super-elevated ride height and a spoiler that looks like it came off your cousin’s old Integra, fear not; it’s not the latest tuner car project driven by some celebrity with more money than taste. It’s actually Rolls’ new SUV test…
