Life is full of annoyances, like when the valet’s face lights up upon seeing the key to your McLaren, or when the mansion groundskeeper has the audacity to remind you that holidays exist. And for the love of everything that is good in the world, let’s not even talk about when the help accidentally spills alcohol on…
This week in “Gnarliest Ways to Show the World How Rich You Are,” someone actually commissioned a surfboard with a 24-karat gold trim to carry around on their Rolls-Royce. Rolls will feature it at an event showing off its “exquisite motor vehicles for the influential and wealthy,” because of course it will.
Rolls-Royce is one of the few automakers left today that still uses a hood ornament to adorn the front of its cars. It’s called the Spirit of Ecstasy—a elegantly winged woman that who looks as though she’s experiencing a constant headwind. She was, allegedly, based on an actual woman named Eleanor Velasco Thornton.
Rolls-Royce hosted their inaugural “Cars and Cognac” last Friday, but didn’t announce it publicly so you couldn’t show up and ruin it with your grubby little hands.
Road trips are perhaps my favorite thing about cars. I drove my Porsche 912E across the country and back last summer, and just yesterday my wife and I drove 500 miles to get some really good ice cream in San Francisco. It’s the pure joy of cars that they provide us the escape, the mobility, the freedom to go and do…
The Rolls-Royce Cullinan will be the hero of every parking lot. Even the sort of underwhelming grocery store parking lots, the kind that make you go, “wait, why is that here?” But if you want the peasantry’s next question to be “and who the hell would make it look like that?” then surely you need the Rolls-Royce…
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know in the case that your boss asks you “so when are we getting high-octane gas in America” and you need to look smart.
Here it is, finally, after years of teasers and camouflaged mules: The 2019 Rolls-Royce Cullinan. The Rolls-Royce of SUVs is here at last. And it has a wicked trunk setup.
Here’s the Rolls-Royce Cullinan undergoing its last rounds of testing before it assumes its final form, which is that of a money printer for the BMW Group.
Because the sky doesn’t produce as many shooting stars as the wealthy deserve, Rolls-Royce made the new Wraith Luminary Collection. It’ll have Rolls’ classic starry fiber-optic headliner, blanketing passengers in a mock night sky with an exorbitant price when the real one is just a chauffeur-opened door away.
This 1974 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow is for sale in Norway for 890,000 kroner, or around $113,000. If I had the money, I would buy it. As the description says, the Rolls will help you “wake up the madness of life.” I believe it.
You know what the problem with people today is? Total lack of foresight. Everyone’s so focused on what’s right in front of their noses, they’re not seeing the big picture. That’s what separates the real winners from the losers. Now, it’s time to talk about Rolls-Royce.
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.
