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.

Lotus Position: Looking More Like Downward Dog

Sep 19 2014 1:51pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The big surprise about Lotus’s announcement of job losses is that it has taken so long to happen. It’s been more than two years since former Lotus CEO Dany Bahar’s acrimonious split from the company and the axing of his ambitious plans to introduce five entirely new models. Since then things have been eerily quiet at Hethel, and sales of Lotus’s road cars have slowed to a trickle in most major markets. Yesterday’s statement says that Group Lotus plans to “restruct ...

Stand—and Ride—in The Man in Black’s Shadow: Johnny Cash’s 1970 Rolls-Royce Headed to Auction

Sep 15 2014 3:32pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

You’d be hard pressed to find an American icon more intrinsically linked to the dark side of the American dream than Johnny Cash. Equal parts rebel, musician, addict, and God-fearing gospel singer, The Man in Black’s lyrics unapologetically drip with southern-fried Americana, the majority of his vast catalog revolving around romance, steam trains, automobiles, substance abuse, and the twin pillars of country music: sin and redemption. It’s in this spirit that we ourselves feelin ...
