Luxury cars are not always what they seem. True they are vehicles that tune-up with the luxury lifestyle, but many of them make bold statements that go well beyond engineering and usability. Luxury car makers and brands know this fact very well, which is why they are always striving to beat the competition in ways other than just torques, top speeds and 0-60’s.
It is no surprise then to see so many weird and wonderful custom options and accessories come with one of the most well-known luxury car manufacturers: Rolls-Royce. As a luxury car enthusiast, Maurice Sines knows much about the eccentric and extravagant choices available with Rolls-Royce, which is one of the most luxurious and exclusive car brands in the world. There are so many great examples this article can only round-up a few of them!
One of the most prized cars in the Rolls Royce line-up is the Phantom Drophead Coupe. Aside from the horsepower and the ride which Rolls is already famous for, this particular Rolls Royce is packed full of illustrious features, and the most surprising is the custom teak decking. Normally found on high-end furniture, this decking covers the rear of the car and must be maintained regularly to keep its colour and shine.
The Rolls-Royce Ghost, just like the Phantom, is certainly a premium car, but as one of the entry level models this car is expected to be less extravagant than its cousin. This however does not stop the car from having full-size golf umbrellas built-in to the sills of each of the front passenger doors, which pop out at the push of a button. After a rainy spell, the compartment even drains away the water after the umbrella is replaced!
Rolls-Royce is not just a car manufacturer that offers extravagant extras with its standard models. The company will do its best to cater to the requests of its customers, and its custom services mean that almost any idea can be turned into reality at the customer’s request. The Starlight headliner is one of the best custom options available with the Rolls-Royce Phantom. The Starlight headliner is a collage of 1,600 lights installed in the interior ceiling space, and though it might not be to everyone’s tastes, it certainly looks nice, and proves just how far Rolls-Royce will go to please the demands of its customers.
Maurice Sines may not own a Rolls Royce, but this doesn’t dim his enthusiasm for this car.
