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.

Rolls Royce Ghost by Novitec Spofec

Sep 27 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

The Rolls-Royce Ghost usually isn’t the type of vehicle Novitec turns its attention to. It’s not a Ferrari; it’s not a Maserati; and last I checked, it’s not a Lamborghini either. But the Novitec Group now has a new tuning arm devoted exclusively to Rolls-Royce models. This new tuning arm is called Novitec Sporfec, which shouldn’t be confused with Novitec Rosso (Ferrari), Novitec Tridente (Maserati), and Novitec Torado (Lam ...

Motor Mouth: This 3D-printed car could change everything

Sep 26 2014 5:00am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

It is like watching the Phoenix — in a modern “real-time” rebirth — rise from its mythical ashes. Or like watching David — if time-lapse photography had existed back when Michelangelo worked his magic — emerge from a mere block of stone. In one contiguous, if only slightly monotonous, 44-hour melding of computer, plastic and laser beams, a company called Local Motors “3D-printed” a car. Yes, an entire automobile. And not just a cute little p ...

Rain can’t spoil these classics at British Car Day

Sep 25 2014 11:36am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

The 31st British Car Day, which is presented by the Toronto Triumph Club, is North America’s largest one-day extravaganza of cars from across the pond. In spite of a horrendous start to the day — complete with severe thunderstorm warnings and a deluge of rain — the day proceeded as planned under sunny skies. I have been going to this show for many years and I cannot remember it ever raining after the gates opened. The wet start did put a minor crimp in t ...

Car Review: 2015 Audi TT S

Sep 25 2014 8:40am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Ascari Motorsport Park, Spain — It is the oldest trick in the automotive parlour. Take one icon — say, just for arguement’s sake, the Audi TT I am testing this week — go back in time to the ground-breaking original, steal a few design cues, dress them up with a few modern styling flourishes and before you can say “My, didn’t Freeman Thomas get it right the first time,” you have a new car. Oh, there will be some grousing abo ...

Man orders $20M-worth of Rolls-Royce Phantoms

Sep 19 2014 3:39pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Car Buying, Sedan, Rolls-Royce, Design/Style, Luxury The term "luxury" gets thrown around a lot when speaking about vehicles that are actually somewhat affordable like BMWs and Cadillacs, but Rolls-Royce and hotel magnate Stephen Hung (above in the wild suit) are proving what real opulence really is with the largest single order from the fabled British marque, ever. Hung is purchasin ...
