    I found out from today's Staten Island Advance newspaper that Rolls Royce has a new Drophead (convertible) Coupe. The car has "suicide" doors that have hinges on rear edges instead of front edges and real wood cut from just one tree per car. I'm not sure if the doors open and close using motors. The car costs more than $400,000 but options can drive the price over $500,000 and I found out that a few people sell the cars for more than one million dollars. I wish that I would ride in a Rolls Royce car.

    Give me the Veyron and I'll be happy! Imagine how many heads I turn with that thing!! Well assuming I don't get jacked lol. But seriously I don't see the point of buying a car for that much, besides to show it off.

    Hmm I think RR have kind of lost their way. I mean, I'm sure it's very refined and well screwed together - but looks certainly aren't its forte. Look at those lights!

    Looks better with the roof up I think

    It weighs 5800lbs too - that's disgusting! I think it's aimed at footballers and gangta rappers.

    There is a motoring show here in the UK called "fifth gear"... On last weeks show they had one of these Rollers and decided to "give something back" so they made an announcement over a radio station for a "car for hire". Then they went off for the day in the rolls doing jobs. They took a woman on a house boat to empty here chemical toilet, they took a couple to get married and something else.. I can't remember. The show is up on the torrent sites if people want to check it out. Fifth Gear were on Joost as well, but I don't think they have the foresight to put new, full, episodes up on that.

    i agree with jeremy clarkson on this one; it should be called the rolls-royce vulgarsonic.

    its just not understated enough for a rolls imo.

    Definitely a negro car.

    Something more refined would be the Jag XK, beautiful machine.

    It's pretty good. More conventional than Top Gear... and more about practical cars. Kind of what Top Gear used to be when the people who present Fifth Gear were presenting Top Gear. But a bit better... cause they did get old Top Gear cancelled. It's all over youtube and so on.... look for yourself.

    You should get a freeview box, I think Devon's analogue TV is getting switched off in like a years time.... actually that's quite a while.. but you should get one anyway.

    yay, racist previously banned members.

    I'm not a fan of the headlights, but they are meant to echo RRs of the past.
    Oh and given the extremely limited numbers and extremely high-price, this car won't be a wanna-be baller's car.

    I f'ing love english cars...but a large proportion of those are italian (obviously the Ginetta isn;t) and (IMO) much more desireable than a 5800lb Roller.

    Edit: Even though I have a hunch the stratos is a replica.

    You've got to be kidding, right? I've never seen so many ugly cars in an entire thread before. And I'm not even trying to troll here.

    And the RR looks pretty sweet.
