no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no noooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!
i dont like it at all (if you couldnt tell) i mean its a rolls royce, that was a once the best style/luxo car on the planet. this is well still very luxo, but where is the convertable hardtop? and it looks just like the bentlys. i wish they looked more modern, i mean 50 years ago this would have been great, but today, well i think they should just move forward in design, and this just looks like that took the same car they have always had and then put new style headlights on it.
and if youve seen the interior its really bland. classy materials trapped in yesterdays design. i think that pretty much sums up the new rolls royce.
it's a rolls... it doesn't have to look good. and yet i don't t really mind it... i think that different colour hood cuts a very cool line across the front of the car. and the trick doors are damn cool.
... the trunk is kind of wild. Looks like a truck bed.
It's a Rolls. I can't afford one.
C'mon, the Europeans do make some impressive rides. The only reason why the 1950's, 60's and 70's were full of American cars were because we didn't have any competition. We bombed all of our competition.
The American auto industry didn't know how to make a quality automobile until the 1980's. Although us Americans are p*ssed, so watch out.
BMW's, Rolls' and Mercedes are all nice automobiles. Although I won't buy one.
In the words of Marty Stuart, the country singer from one of his songs, I "bleed red, white, and blue".
I generally find this car appealing in a "it's-not-so-bad" kinda way, though I'm not a fan of RR's updated fronts, particularly on the Phantom.
It's funny, nothing RR does makes me think that their cars are worth the bucks that people pay for them. Technically, they aren't state-of-the-art, they are not significantly faster/sportier, I don't find their interiors THAT much better/luxurious than cars in the $60-$80,000 price range, and stylistically they don't appear to have an edge over anyone. Somehow, they have a certain cachet, and I suppose that's the appeal: "I drive a Rolls-Royce." To me, a Maybach seems to justify its price better, and certainly the Sixteen concept has it all over the RR in a variety of ways.
Then again, I'm not and will never be ultra-wealthy, so I suppose folks in England could give a rat's behind what I think of their concept!
