    I loved the older Rolls Royce cars but the last 15yrs does nothing for me other than being an ugly brick on wheels. I guess if you have more money than brains and your a name dropping idiot than this is the ugly car for you.

    I rather like the Ghost, and the Wraith doubly so. A convertible would round off their "lower" line quite nicely.

     

    I think even the Phantom Drophead and Coupe have a sort of massive elegance to them.

     

    Rolls' are about moving around in the most comfortable way possible, and letting everyone know that you are very comfortable indeed.
