Car is filled with real diamonds

In the Middle East a lot of people are insanely wealthy. For these incredibly wealthy people, you can't simply use LED lights inside of a Rolls-Royce Phantom to make the headliner in other places to look like the nighttime sky. For these incredibly wealthy oil barons, you have to use diamonds.

Rolls-Royce has unveiled the Celestial Phantom with 446 diamonds placed into the door caps, center console, and the rear privacy divider. The vehicle was unveiled at the Dubai Motor Show.

There's no indication of exactly how many carats of diamonds are inside the vehicle or how much it costs. When you are talking about incredibly wealthy middle Easterners cost really isn't an issue. The vehicle also promises to use the finest leather on the inside and has huge amounts of luxurious features.

The Brady Bunch Boys Attend the World's Largest Disco
Do you care what colour your car is? The most popular car colour in the world is white, according to PPG Industries, the biggest automotive paint supplier.

There is also a new reason being proposed: we’re matching our cars to our Apple products. I was about to dismiss that last one as silly, until I remembered a t ...

When you walk into the nondescript building that looks like any old warehouse, you’re greeted by millions of dollars worth of pristine classic cars and motorcycles. An old Austin-Healey Sprite smiles back at you, a guy on a classic Ducati rides by, its thrumming engine inte ...

Bentley CEO Wolfgang Durheimer displays
The Bentley Mulsanne’s market launch in 2011 ushered in a new era for the British marque as a direct answer to the Rolls-Royce Ghost. The luxury limousine didn’t exactly set the world on fire when it was released, but a facelift to the 2015 model helped alleviate some of the Mulsanne’s design concerns. But a facelifted Mulsanne isn’t the only version in the works here. Turns out, a performance variant of th ...

Mercedes-Benz & Simon Gao Show A/W 2014 - Arrivals
Seriously, it was enough to make me wonder whether the human race, what with our trips to the moon and advanced electric cars, has evolved at all from our primitive beginnings. This week, buried way deep in the detritus that is my inbox, came the news that Mercedes-Benz is looking at taking a large stake in troubled Italian motorcycle manufacturer MV Agusta. Now, I can hear most of you asking, what could the world’s largest purveyor of luxury cars possibly gain from acquiri ...
