Rolls-Royce, like most major companies, has a site where it posts press releases to keep media up to date with the goings on in its diamond-encrusted hallways which are spritzed hourly with the milk of a sparkly unicorn, also made of diamonds. They read like the diary of a billionaire’s child who can do no wrong, and…
In case you weren’t aware, Rolls-Royce’s online configurator is the planet’s best online configurator. If you’re sick of the miserable, grayscale “rainbows” of non-color offered by lesser makes like BMW or Mercedes, the dazzling array of options available to the discerning Roller buyer will delight you.
Buying Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Maybachs and flaunting wealth seems like a good idea until Bulgaria, one of the most impoverished members of the European Union, decides to have police stop and check expensive cars and investigate owners for tax fraud and money laundering.
Rolls-Royce, when not content making gargantuan, hulking sedans and coupes for today’s plutocrats, is now busying itself with making gargantuan, hulking SUVs as well. While we’ve seen prototypes of the vehicle, RR will soon be revealing the Cullinan in full in private showings this summer. This only means one thing:…
Rolls-Royce is often like that kid from grade school who always talked about having better stuff than everyone else. “Oh yeah? Well my mom bought me a Razr because I didn’t want a lame silver flip phone.” Perhaps that’s why, instead of putting a normal chair in its London showroom, Rolls found a $52,000 one.
Some look at Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II and see an exquisite piece of work, the epitome of automotive luxury and class. Others may see a blank canvas, and go to work tearing it apart, running homemade piping along the roof, and turbo plumbing out of the nose, and now you can buy it.
There’s no shame in faking it ‘til you’re making it, and what better way to fake it than by driving a genuinely nice and enjoyable ride. This is good for self confidence, impressing a date, impressing your friends, impressing your parents, and possibly most importantly, impressing your colleagues and superiors.
Recently, Rolls-Royce had recording artist Skepta get in the back of a Phantom and record a song for a promotional video. It was meant to show how silent the car is—enough to be used as a recording studio—but it seems to also be so quiet that no one could hear their common sense telling them to put on a seat belt.
Christmas is coming up fast and that means you have to start buying gifts for people. Luckily, I acquired a copy of lifestyle magazine Town and Country (not the Chrysler product) and they have a few perfectly sensible automotive gift ideas for the car person in your life. After all, car enthusiasts are sometimes hard…
Autonomy and electricity are the future of the car industry, but not for Rolls-Royce. See, Rolls-Royce customers should not have to sit in a driver’s seat and tap a steering wheel to tell a car they’re still awake. The thought of it is absurd. They have chauffeurs for that, so long as future generations learn how to…
Rolls-Royce has a lamp that’ll show you how paint colors will look under the sun anywhere in the world, because you don’t want to design a $500,000 car only to have it look dingy in your driveway. But that lamp probably won’t show you how your car will look in a sinkhole, which is where this Rolls ended up.
Did you know that you can buy an old Rolls Royce for, like, the lint and lose change in your pocket? Anybody can get one of these cars off Craigslist now, but turning one into an ass-hauling hot rod takes a special kind of demented genius.
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.
