Eat the Nouveau Riche

plus some sticker porn and a look under the bonnet and boot. This is the +Rolls-Royce Motor Cars  Phantom Drophead Coupé from our friends at +Couture Customs. These guys.

Surprisingly tasteful
A few thoughts on this monster:
  • the biggest small car i can think of - 4 seats, 3 "tonnes" - but there's not an overabundance of spare space
  • the engine compartment is nothing special, apart from the fact of 12 cylinders, the badging, and the English motor car looking braces.  But at least with all that size, the components aren't jammed in with no room to spare.
  • This could never be a mobster car - no room in the "boot" for a body.

Pearls before swine, evidently

Loitering like a boss (actually, this was a really nice kid)

Not quite the Petronas fusion reactor I expected to see.

Labeled, so you know it's not some common V12

The helm was colored by my dad, evidently.  Black and white and clashy teak
