2017 Rolls-Royce DAWN – Bespoke Inspired By Fashion

  The Dawn might be the best Rolls-Royce yet! Stunning grace and top-down proportions.  Swapping the Wraith’s heavy, buttressed roof lightens the look of the car dramatically.  The tail of the Dawn is then perfect for a perfectly horizontal tonneau cover and trunklid.  Truly elegant. This Inspired By Fashion creation is from the RR Bespoke team.  Andalusian white paintwork is a shimmery spectacle in bright sunlight.  THe cabin wears blue silk detailing featuring a profile headshot of the Spirt of Ecstacy.  So, looking at her from the side, that is. Little details, of course.  But the roof in bright blue is a strong statement piece year-round.   2017 Rolls-Royce DAWN – Inspired by Fashion You May Also Like:2015 Rolls-Royce WRAITH Inspired By Fashion Edition Is Two-Tone White With Color Pinstripe The English factory floor has never looked so good, or so bright!

2015 Rolls-Royce WRAITH Inspired by Music Is Toe Up, Dead on Arrival

D.O.A. is how this new Wraith feels; cold and stiff under your fingertips. Luckily, the car is already painted casket bronze. As you may or may not know, we are HUGE Rolls-Royce fans here at Car-Revs-Daily. A chance to drive Wraith at a super swanky resort launch was a highlight of my few years writing car news and reviews. But seriously, this latest special edition Wraith makes me so frustrated that it almost leads to anger. What the heck, Rolls? This is perhaps the fifth special edition Roller this year, and all are fairly hideous. While I am positive this is not the case thanks to meticulously-planned detail tweaks, etc …. these “special” edition models feel like little more than a completed configurator build. The same wheels as the stock machine. No changes aside from color outside. Inside, some gold speaker grilles and polished badges attempt to feel special. Not …

Hypercar Heroes – 750HP, 2.7s 2010 PAGANI Zonda R is 7 Minutes in Heaven

2009 PAGANI Zonda R 62 copy

No study of hypercar heroes would be complete without the phenomenal Pagani Zonda R from 2009 to 2010. Just 15 examples of this hardcore track machine were produced, with pricing of around $2.5-million each. With typical Pagani thoroughness, the Zonda R’s creation is far more that a set of slick tires and lightweight carpet. As you can see from almost every angle, the Zonda R employs an all-new aerodynamic setup. Giant lower intake scoops and splitter could cut off a pedestrian at the ankles, with the sharp wedge of a carbon-fiber nose an effective cleaver to finish that dark job. (Luckily, the graffiti artists of the Nurburgring tend to come at night.) Around back, the Zonda R is almost all-new both design-wise and mechanically. A smooth-flowing rear decklid sweeps the air off the car and through the giant wing, while a jumbo diffuser sucks the car onto the pavement with …

2015 Rolls-Royce WRAITH Inspired By Fashion Edition Is Two-Tone White With Color Pinstripe

2015-Rolls-Royce-Inspired-By-Fashion-Edition-15df

The English factory floor has never looked so good, or so bright! The new Wraith Inspired By Fashion Edition is a tasty new Haute Couture supercoupe. Created with a two-tone white exterior bisected by a choice of Jasmine (yellow), Tailored Purple or Mugello Red, the Wraith Fashion is understated yet instantly special. The effect of a slightly darker Andalucian White white on the fenders is interesting with the ultra-bright Arctic shade on the hood. We wish the wheels were gloss black to really match the formalwear feel of the cabin, but that is easily handled post-sale. Overall, the Wraith Fashion is one for the high-fashion elite.  2015 Rolls-Royce WRAITH Inspired By Fashion Edition ROLLS-ROYCE MOTOR CARS UNVEILS ‘WRAITH – INSPIRED BY FASHION’ 08.05.2015 Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and the world of Haute Couture have long been bound by a common philosophy – to take the very finest materials and craft them …

2015 Rolls-Royce WRAITH Inspired by Film Edition Celebrates Frozen Moment BFI Inductee

2015 Rolls-Royce WRAITH Inspired by Film Special Edition 4-tile

    When a 2-minute launch movie for a car is inducted into the British Film Institute National Archive, you know it must be something special. Both the car and those magical two minutes of cinema are indeed quite special, breathtaking and goose-bump-inducing. The premise of the film ‘And the World Stood Still’ is a man piloting his Wraith through an enchanted, steaming forest when he comes across the living incarnation of the Spirit of Ecstasy badge. For one fleeting, frozen moment, the two have an ethereal bond that is at once serene, lust-filled and slightly fraught with danger. Thematically, the film shows that the Spirit of Ecstasy is with you, guiding you and calling out to you with her beauty – mile after mile. The Wraith launch film is now in the record books for its beauty, production innovations and stunning visuals. A new production car salutes this honor: the Wraith Inspired …

Updated With 42 New Photos – INFINITI Q80 Inspiration Concept Flagship

q80 gif

Updated 10.2.14 One popular design cliche is to describe the panel shapes of a model as ‘like flowing silk.’ The idea is to be lighter than air, and always in motion with ripples and elegant movement at all times. Far beyond cliche, the new Q80 Inspiration makes the idea real.A rare achievement, to be sure, and very exciting. Freeze that wind-swept silk in time, and it carries the beauty of motion even as a static piece. That is how we would describe the latest panel shaping theme shown in the new Q80 Inspiration, which is officially set to become a production model in the future. Sitting atop the new Q70L in the Infiniti model range, the 2016 or 2017 Q80 limousine’s design will try to bring this silky essence to the roads in a few years. The rear canopy and glass forms an interesting point in this concept, which is …

Concept Flashback – 1985 Nissan Cue-X Inspired Original Infiniti Q45 Flagship and Future Q80

cuex gif1

  As we prepare for the upcoming Infiniti Q80 Inspiration concept’s debut in Paris, how about a look back at the springboard ideas that led to the first flagship, the Q45 of 1990. The 1985 Cue-X concept from Nissan shares clear details with what became the Q45 from all angles, but especially in profile. This low and lean shape was far less formal than the competition from Lexus in the LS400, as well as the established players like Mercedes-Benz and BMW. It is fascinating to see the inspiration for the original Q, and the low and flowing style shown by the Cue-X is certainly a part of the upcoming Q80 Inspiration. This model is billed as a sleek four-seat fastback — which strongly points to a four-door coupe in our book.
