2010 Rolls Royce Phantom Sports
2010 Rolls Royce Phantom Sports Line Black Bison Edition
Some cars require no further tweaking both externally or internally or even for their engine to make them any better. Their inherent quality is class enough when they roll out of the factory lines. Rolls Royce Phantom can surely be placed in this category of vehicles. Yet there are tuners who would not stop and doing their bit on the likes of theRolls Royce Phantom as well as few other of the same category like the Bentley Continental Flying Spur and the Mercedes E-Class.
Few images of the re-worked Rolls Royce Phantom SPORTS LINE Black Bison Edition have been released by the tuning company. This car would be debuting at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Salon event. The reworked car as is evident in the photograph, has redesigned front bumpers, new headlamps with LED lights, and new side skirts. There would for sure be modification carried out to the rear of the car as well like new exhaust and spoilers in all probability. There would be new wheels also in the package as can be expected.

1933 Rolls Royce in Barons 27th July Auction

Barons has secured a handsome and interesting trio of Rolls-Royce 20/25s for its sale of Classic, Historic and Sports Cars at Sandown Park on July 27th.

The trio includes a 1935 20/25 Limousine by Thrupp and Maberley. This is a highly significant machine, as it was one of the first cars ever painted with a pearlescent finish (achieved using fish scales suspended in the paint). This superb motor car has performed sterling duty as a wedding car, and is believed to have transported over 100 brides on their big day (£43,000-£48,000).

There is also a 'barn find' 1933 Sedanca de Ville with coachwork by Barker, which has been barn stored for many years and is presented in totally original condition, so presents an outstanding restoration opportunity (£15,000-£20,000).

Finally there is a 1930 20/25 Open Tourer with Keeble bodywork which has been in the same ownership for 30 years (£30,000-£35,000.

2010 Rolls-Royce Ghost: A dazzling follow-up

2010 Rolls-Royce Ghost
Sir Winston Churchill would undoubtedly roll over in his grave to learn that Rolls-Royce and Bentley, the noblest of British luxury car brands, now belong to German manufacturers. The former is one of the BMW Group’s brands, just like another British icon, the Mini. The latter is part of the large Volkswagen conglomerate.

Purists and jingoists alike have no reason to worry about these ownership changes since Rolls-Royce and Bentley, long-time twins, have been brought back to life and re-launched with vigour and an impressive respect for their traditions. Not to mention that they now benefit from the most advanced technology and German engineering and manufacturing know-how. So much for the often questionable and fuzzy quality and innovation that once undermined the reputation of English cars.

Of these two brands, by far the most prestigious and renowned is Rolls-Royce, which, more than any other, is associated with royalty and great wealth. With a still imposing silhouette and an immense Greek temple-like front grille crowned with the emblem of the Spirit of Ecstasy (a feminine figure with wings outstretched) you’d recognize a Rolls anywhere.
