It looks nice, even though I'm not a big fan of Rolls Royce.

Yeah it's been on the rolls royce website for a while now lol.


Only thing I don't like about it is that it's not very powerful or fast and it's not very aerodynamic either.

its very aerodynamic for its shape! it is powerful! and is fairly fast, but you dont need to be fast in that car, id say it was merely designed to look good at cruising speeds!
anyway, it has the 6.7 1/2litre engine, same one used in the Phantom which has close to 500bhp!
the 100EX concept had a 9litre V16 with close to 700bhp, why they didnt go for that engine i do not know?
but id stick to bentley!
RR's are to be driven in, Bentleys are to be driven by (thats what i think)

The engine makes like 450hp and 450hp in a 6000 lb car doesn't make for "fast".

I would expect at least 500hp from that car. Disappointing.

Then again, I would probably never buy one anyways

450bhp would be enough for me nyway, its a cruising car, like said, it aint really built to be driven at high speeds! id stick to the new Bentley Arnage R which has 500bhp from its 6.75litre twin turbo V(i forgot, 8/12???)
and it only weighs 2.5tonnes

or the Azure!!!
pure style, better than the Rolls Royce, all i need to do is win the lottery!

this isnt the first drop top royce, but they did right... its still got the suicides... i remember when i worked in az. i got to drive, literally her majesty's old rolsroyce. i t was a corniche, and the thing was rad. i guess her favorite colour was blue, so this car was BLUE. two tone dark blue, light blue, and SMURF BLUE interior. it had the nardi steering wheel, RHD. good times. so anyways... i think rolls was going after the corniche with the new one

One thing maybach, bentley and rolls royce have always done well is provide exactly what their customers want while giving them massive amounts of power. I'm just saying this one isn't really all that powerful or fast. It's not SLOW really, but I just expect more.

That make sense to anyone?

Believe me it'll be fast....Not exactly 'Ferrari fast', but fast nonetheless. But as Jamie said, you wouldn't by it to be fast, it's more of a boat than it is a car, and at that price I'd rather buy a house I think!

It's on their website. If you want a 0-60, it's estimated at 5.9 sec...which sounds about right for a boat of that size.


Btw, I'd dish out the extra $$ for a maybach 57 S
