Rolls Royce first SUV with a 6.75l V12, 4 wheel drive and ultra reliable cheap as chips air suspension. Lots of unique clever design features, including his & her seats that swivel out from the boot for when ones watching royalty at a polo match. :y :y :y

No price given but if you have to ask.... :-[ :-[ :-[

Ideal for that one upmanship Chelsea Tractor. ;) ;) ;)

Very nice......inside. The exterior looks like they tried too hard to design something instantly recognisable.

It looks contrived and fooking horrible. I'd rather have your Astra and an incontinent whippet. :)

So would I. Its beyond hideous. A reminder, if it was needed, that the brand which once represented elegance, opulence and understated class is now aimed at people with lots of money and no class, taste or style.
I'm sure Rooney will have a pair on order.

But Rolls Royces have always been a bit flashy and vulgar; this carries on that tradition.

I believe Rolls Royce is becoming more popular with wealthy chavs and less popular with the nobility.

Gangster rappers and wealthy pimps love them.

Sadly Rolls Royces have for quite some time been nothing more than upmarket BMWs just as Bentleys are now upmarket VW/Audis,mind you prior to that Bentleys were for a long time badge engineered RRs.The choice of royalty used to be[up until at least WWII?] Daimler.

Rolls began to become vulgar in the 70,s. They have a long history before that.

Don't know if BMW have done so since their takeover but RR didn't use to fit a rev counter as Henry Royce considered them vulgar so even the Spirit/Spur didn't have one.

So for Shrek, once he can drive again the swivel seats are for watching racing at Aintree or entertaining Wee Slapper. :D :D :D

Rolls began to become vulgar in the 70,s.   1906


Fixed that for you.


Meanwhile, Mercedes have had a go.  They've hired the designer of the Suzuki X90, stolen some wheels off a donk, got a load of candy red paint and plastered the whole lot over their big 4x4 to outdo both Rolls Royce and BMW's X6. Have at look at this EYESORE.

Have you seen the rest of the current Mercedes range? It all suffers from lots of styling, but not much style.
