    Rolls Royce Black Badge

    The biggest surprise of the Geneva show for me was how good the new Black Badge cars from RR were. They look absolutely stunning in person. More torque/power/ and stiffer suspension may make me change my Wraith for a Ghost Black badge purely from a practicality standpoint.

    Re: Rolls Royce Black Badge

    the wheels are wrong for the car .. looks like they came off some second rate catalgue


    Re: Rolls Royce Black Badge

    Funny - I am not normally one for big heavy visuals on wheels - but I liked these as they are different and are surfaced in layers of carbon


    Re: Rolls Royce Black Badge

    Oh wow. That Wraith is a stunner. Love it, including the wheels. Now how do I afford one. yes


    Re: Rolls Royce Black Badge

    I love the wheels.

    Re: Rolls Royce Black Badge

    Other than the wheels, what's the difference exterior-wise on these cars?


    Re: Rolls Royce Black Badge

    That car, that colour, different wheels. It looks great.

    Hey, no comment that this car would be perfect for RC in Miami? yes

    Well...it would be...if I had tons of money. kiss Like Whoopsy said, this car has presence and while I'm not a big fan for the wheels, I could live with them.

    Re: Rolls Royce Black Badge

    Still amazed how many RR you can see in Miami... My neighborhood has several go hem and funny enough they are not even in the nicest homes. One even sleeps outside because that house docent have a garage along with a yellow Gallardo.

    Re: Rolls Royce Black Badge

    Maybe it's just me, but I think RR has an awful image in the US. I'd say it's a hip-hop car. Definitely not classy on this side of the pond.

    I see tons of (new models) RR in Miami and surroundings and the men and women driving them don't exactly look like music stars or pimps. Smiley It is surprising for me however that I see older people in Miami in a Bentley and the younger ones (40-50) in the RR (talking about the new models, not the old ones).

    Saw only a single RR in Beverly Hills though, the yellow one in front of the Bijan store.

    Re: Rolls Royce Black Badge

    Christian, remember what I said a while ago? Bentley is for people who are waiting to die, their next car is the coffin.

    RR is hip now, they get what younger people want, and their customer demographics is getting younger.

    Smiley I still love the Bentley Continental Coupe convertible...can't help it. Smiley

    Seems to be true. Even I, someone who never ever liked RR loves the Ghost and I really don't like sedans.

    OK, the interior could need some improvements but...

    Please don't get me wrong: I would get a Ghost or a Wraith only if I had the wealth to be able to afford several high priced cars. I would never choose the Ghost/Wraith as my only car but I guess most owners don't really have this problem. Smiley

    Re: Rolls Royce Black Badge

    I think the RR Wraith is just stunning .. utterly unique car with presence, elegance and beauty

    and not shouty.


    Re: Rolls Royce Black Badge

    IMO a RR is more ostentatious than just about any exotic and has a very celebrity image in the US. When I see a RR, it just screams "Look how wealthy I am."

    While one could argue an exotic says that too, I would say no kid ever had posters of giant British luxury cars on their walls. No kid ever picked the toy RR over the car that looked like it went 1000mph. No one was watching Bentley or RR win races.

    Maybe things are different in Europe, but the fact that you probably see more RR in Miami than in a large northern cities like Chicago or NYC is pretty telling of the image. Why would you want a giant sedan when living in borderline tropical weather?

    Why would you want a giant SUV in such weather? (not even sure what the weather has to do with the car type Smiley).

    Re: Rolls Royce Black Badge

    What does winter has to do with it? People like SUV because they can carry their family and luggages and they fell safe with the higher driving position...

    People want R Royces because they are big, safe and onstentacious...
