Rolls Royce make a model of the Cullinan that I guess would be under the cap. Cheap Cullinan So maybe there's hope for the Spectre as well 😁😁

I'm impressed with the standard inclusion of four-wheel steering. Means the car gets a 12.7m turning radius. (for comparison a 4x4 Hilux is 12.6m, hate to think what the rolls would be without the rear wheels turning).

 



I doubt that the turning circle would bother an owner. They're not going to drive it - the chauffuer will.

 

Rolls-Royce is no longer just for the Chauffeured. They have put a heap of effort into creating models that will appeal to customers who prefer to drive themselves.

 

The Spectre will be one of these. Unlikely that owner who prefers to be Chauffeured will buy a two door car.

Very nice, but it has a non-buying disadvantage: you can't live out your distinct lifestyle of understatement with it and you can't get to your car dry-footed at Aldi and Lidl because of the crowds. Besides, it's a BMW in disguise ;-)

The interior can be whatever you like. It is a Rolls Royce.

 

 

 

They will dye leather to match your bathroom if you so wish.

A friends 11 year old son had the perfect comment to that car:

 

"Dad, looks like someone bought a Rolls Royce on Wish".
