Many cars of flagrant luxury tend to take their untouchable quality too far. As if, propelled by the force of their own opulence, they were shooting for aspirational but didn’t hit the breaks soon enough, landing instead at cold and uninviting.
This is the exact experience that Rolls-Royce devotes years precisely to avoiding. The end result is that the company has effectively built vehicles that outstrip and redefine the conventional understanding of a luxury automobile. For the price and prestige that they command, they must offer more than witless gadgets and some leather: Every feature is the product of pedantic thought, and every inch is part of the car’s greater narrative. – Arianna Lim
