• Rolls Royce Apparition Concept

So maybe it’s not as obvious and toy-like as the BMW X1 or theBugatti Veyron built straight from Lego blocks, but this Rolls Royce Apparition Concept bears some strong resemblance to the construction toys we used to play with when we were young. Except a Rolls Royce is nothing to play around with so we are not sure what Jeremy Westerlund was thinking when he put together this boxy contraption.

Then again, he provided a little synopsis of the inspiration behind his creation. He sees the Apparition Concept as "An ultra luxurious chauffeur driven limousine evoking the glamor and sophistication of chauffeur driven cars in the past that has since been lost. This vehicle is about being seen, but at the same time being invisible or an "Apparition" in the sense that you’re safely tucked away in its palatial and private interior. Exterior model-milled foam from Alias data."

Thankfully, this is just a 1:4 scale model concept, so the chances of anyone building this Phantom-based vehicle is slim to none. Actually it’s more like none to none, since it looks like the driver would be the only person able to ride around in it and he may only be able to jump in it to sit down. Radio, navigation system, and even simple luxuries such as cupholders seem to be completely out of the question for this ride. This car would only exist to make a statement, and that statement would be: "Because I can."

haha. Yeah right its kind of a stretched matchbox! And I think it’s not the best looking limousine I have seen. Seriously, they need to enhance the aesthetic of this car.

oh no! what a hideous looking car. It’s actually look like a coffin on the wheel! I don’t think that it can be called future car! Oh please Rolls Royce, just make it a concept car forever!

“..I think this type of model cars is not really common to used right now, in latest version..Not typically a good demand for the customers choice.

honestly I cant see that this thing will go into production, prototype maybe but mass production no.. the biggest question here is the passenger... only the driver can fit it.. so what accomodation do this thing have?

As weird as it is, you have to give it to the designer, an exposed driver? mahogany in the wheels? so Rolls Royce-ish... great stuff...

Seriously, wow. This has got to be one of the all time greatest concepts. I saw the picture, and I my brain jumped into another dimension where no rules existed.

Unfortunately they have miscalculated the space needed by the driver. The car is more like a super cool toy car smiley

What I like the most is how they thought the spare wheel place smiley

The front and back look great, but the place for only one? Or probably they couldn’t decide the best shape for the rooftop and they are waiting for suggestions.

Breathtaking, my first impression about this car, Josh5000- BMW 5 gt is a stupid car, and this is a masterpiece, but how does the driver get in the car ? any ideas ?

Such a stupid car! What if it started to rain! It would damage the car!

Information from another website suggests that the passengers are cocooned in the back, only the driver is exposed the the elements harking back to some of Rolls Royce’s older models.
