Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce is one of the world’s most famous luxury car manufacturers that’s been around for over a century in one shape or another and is currently the epitome of posh in BMW’s family of brands. Rolls-Royce’s been producing laid-back sedans such as the Phantom or the Ghost for years but, more recently, has branched out into the crossover SUV market due to the huge demand with the Cullinan. Elsewhere, the Dawn and the Wraith satisfy those looking for a two-door Rolls-Royce experience.

Rendering: A Rolls-Royce Supercar That Doesn’t Put Luxury First

Rolls-Royce is all about luxury, but what if they went the other direction and built a supercar?

If there’s one adjective that perfectly describes Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, that would be luxury. After all, when the company was founded in 1906, its goal was to create the best cars in the world. However, what the company considers best are cars that isolate you from the world around you. That’s basically what their lineup is all about right now, but what if they made a car that went the completely opposite direction? What if Rolls-Royce built a supercar?

2023 Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II - What You Need to Know

Rolls-Royce has rejigged the Phantom for the 2023 model year, but the changes aren’t too significant

Rolls-Royce has finally updated the eighth-gen Phantom after five long years. The automaker has mentioned that the changes to the updated model are based on inputs from its clients. They “implored Rolls-Royce not to make any major changes to an already iconic motor car”. This is a clear indication that the 2023 Phantom doesn’t come with a whole lot of changes. In fact, Rolls-Royce doesn’t even call it a facelift. It has been labeled as a ‘new expression’.

686 horsepower and a carbon fiber body kit really transforms the look of the Dawn

The Novitec Group is one of the biggest tuners in the world, and depending on the model it is working on, it has a different name. For example, Novitec Rosso is working on Ferrari models, Novitec Tridente on Maserati, and Spofec with Rolls-Royce models. Spofec’s latest creation is named Overdose and it is based on the Dawn Black Badge. If the name sounds familiar it is because a similar Overdose package was also applied to the standard Dawn a few years back.

2021 Rolls-Royce Cullinan By Klassen

$1 million is want you need to get protection against bullets and grenades

On the U.S. market, a base Rolls Royce Cullinan is priced at $330,000. Not the cheapest SUV out there, but not very bad considering we are looking at a super-luxurious SUV. Then again, if you think that the prices for the Aston Martin DBX start from $180k and the ones for the Lamborghini Urus from a little over $210k, maybe the Cullinan is a bit expensive!

But, how would you feel about a $1 million Cullinan? Or, to be more precise €833,000 - or about $965,000 at the current exchange rate. A model like this actually does exist and it comes from the German tuner Klasses. Why is it so expensive? Lets find out!

What is the Cheapest Rolls-Royce?

While you might’ve heard the story about the $65,000 Rolls-Royce Phantom VI that was, supposedly, the cheapest modern Rolls-Royce up for grabs in the US, no new car built by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in Goodwood, West Sussex, United Kingdom, is cheap. After all, we’re talking about sizeable sedans, coupes, and SUVs built using the finest materials inside and out. However, even in Rolls-Royce’s lineup, there’s quite a gap between the cheapest and the most expensive model. The one that’s the least expensive is the Rolls-Royce Wraith, the two-door version of the Ghost, that comes with a $320,500 sticker price. The company’s only SUV is only slightly pricier with an MSRP of $325,000.

What is the Sportiest Rolls-Royce?

Back in the day, Rolls-Royce flat out refused to offer performance figures, arguing that a Rolls-Royce is built to transport its passengers immersed in an atmosphere of complete luxury and serenity and top speed or acceleration aren’t part of the equation. However, since 2003, Rolls-Royce has been reestablished as a wholly-owned subsidiary of BMW and, as such, the latest Rollers are sportier than ever. No longer will you find ’satisfactory’ written next to the official manufacturer-reported top speed. As such, we can tell you that the sportiest Rolls-Royce is the Wraith. In its most potent version, called ’Black Badge’, the Wraith’s 6.6-liter, twin-turbocharged V-12 puts out 623 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 642 pound-feet of torque between 1,700 and 4,500 rpm. Despite weighing in at over 5,300 pounds, the Wraith goes from naught to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds on its way to an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.

What is the Most Popular Rolls-Royce?

In 2018, Rolls-Royce sold a record 4,107 vehicles worldwide and one-third of them call North America home, making the US the country where Rolls-Royce sells most cars. Thenew-for-2018 Phantom was among the most popular models last year, quoted as being the "growth driver" by the company’s CEO, although it wasn’t the model that sold the most. This year, however, the Cullinan will most certainly be the growth driver and the best-selling model as orders have been going through the roof for the boxy, full-size SUV with the order backlog having reached the third quarter of 2019 already by early January.

What is the Most Expensive Rolls-Royce?

The most expensive Rolls-Royce before you add the myriad of taxes and you step into the wonderful but costly world of personalization, is the $492,425 Rolls-Royce Phantom EWB (extended wheelbase) model. The EWB is a whole $74,600 more expensive than the standard Phantom which, in itself, is a whopping $71,525 more expensive than the third priciest car in Rolls-Royce’s range, the Dawn Convertible. To put it into perspective, a brand-new 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class filled to the brim with options costs exactly $74,600 while a luxury full-size SUV (with fewer options) such as Audi’s Q8 comes in at just $71,400.

What is the Fastest Rolls-Royce?

Following the German gentleman’s agreement, all of Rolls-Royce’s current models are electronically limited to a top speed of 155 mph. That means there’s no ’fastest’ Rolls-Royce as all go as fast. Having said that, the Wraith is probably the fastest of the lot without the limiter as it features the most powerful engine and it’s smaller than the four-door sedans in the British automaker’s roaster. While there’s no official word on this, there’s no reason why the Wraith couldn’t approach or even surpass 170 mph without the limiter in place.

Are Rolls-Royce Cars Reliable?

As a part of BMW and the most expensive brand under the BMW umbrella, Rolls-Royce cars are generally very reliable despite their unique underpinnings and engines that are not shared, for the most part, with other BMW products. However, build quality is high and, thanks to the aluminum shells, your Roller is protected from rust. However, owning and maintaining a Rolls-Royce is expensive and this means that if you don’t afford to maintain it properly, problems will appear over time as these are cars that pack an impressive amount of technology in them, many electrical systems, many computers, all that can fail if the car is not taken care of properly. J.D. Power has not rated any Rolls-Royce models at the time of writing.
