    Whatever your response to the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, you can’t fault the company’s credentials. Prestige players crave authenticity above all else – it’s a valuable USP, particularly in China – and rather than being fashionably late to the SUV party, Rolls-Royce can legitimately claim to have been a pioneer. With the ultimate celebrity endorsement.

    “More valuable than rubies in the desert,” Lawrence of Arabia noted of his nine-strong fleet of Rolls-Royces, modified to handle the brutal theatre of war he operated in. His personal car was called Blue Mist (he’s said to have commandeered it from its owner after spotting it outside a Cairo nightclub); others were open-bed tender vehicles, and several were armoured. During his legendary campaign against the Ottoman Turks, none ever broke down.

    I don't know what RR were thinking of, that is a heap of shit. Now is one of the most hideous cars I have seen.

    If there's a market for it they will create it and sell it.

    you know the weird thing?
    the Austin Allegro may have gone down in history as one of the worst cars ever produced in the uk, but the Vanden Plas was actually a seriously good seller for them, couldn’t make them fast enough :eek:

    the 70’s was a fecking strange time

    I had an early gf with an Allegro. the engine literally fell out onto the road one day. not even kidding :D

    You know, paint that thing black and add a "tail" and it actually wouldn't look that different from the way one imagines a Rolls Royce.
