The New Rolls Royce

Let us simply take a close up look at the new Rolls Royce.



The name is yet to be announced.



But with precedence the name should follow the Rolls Royce convention.



The precedence of naming this car is as follows:
Silver Ghost
Silver Wraith
Silver Dawn
Silver Cloud
Silver Shadow
Silver Spirit
Silver Seraph



So the name of Rolls Royce 200EX should be the Rolls Royce Silver 'Something Quite and a touch Mystical'. Start the guessing game.



Now to the body shape longevity. It has a lot to live up to.



Again let us look at precedence:
Silver Shadow ~ 30 years
Silver Spirit ~ 20 years
Silver Seraph ~ 12 years



So according to the imaginary graph the new body shape should last for 5-6 years. Somehow I think that is a little short.

It’s interesting in looking at the split between RR and Bentley.

Bentley, under VW, always seems the absolute end of the line - a miracle that they still make such cars in this day and age. I still can't face the Phaeton based cars.

Whereas Rolls Royce under BMW feels like something out of the Thunderbirds; something from the future.

I wish I was in their target market. Perhaps one day.
