It will grow on people. Remember all the screaming when the Cayenne was first revealed?

That's so it can wallow at the trough of the gas pump. It will swill down the gasoline. Next they will be putting a diesel in it.

Fifty.

Oh I do think they will sell to the filthy Nuevo riche...wana impress the glitterati next door...you will get attention as you go by with the subwoofer buzzing away.

Ummm...ummm.ummma..just look at all those little buttons that work all these gizmos..bro all I have to do is push this little button here annd..

Say wat...how much do those little Lucas electrics motors cost again to replace...

Ouuu when they get older you are going to see a lot of them that do not get fixed..and that means they will be relegated to say 928 status and price....or Benz 90's SL status. Nobody will want those pigs in a poke.

If it grows on people it will be like toenail fungus. The only way this thing could be uglier is if it were painted bright blue with a bright blue interior. Pepper-wagons are ubiquitous. Just part of the scenery now. These turds will rarely be seen outside of places like Miami or Palm Springs.

PCH between Newport Beach and Dana Point is littered with new Bentleys and RRs. These will be very popular. I saw Vin Diesel driving one a few weeks ago.

An SUV RR is pandering to the psyche of the mass culture of what is the flavor of the day..instead of being a trend setter....it is just one more of the prosaic herd of suvs out there.

What is the diff between hollywood, newport bch and or malibu?

It is all filled with self important rich people who have arrived, want to exhibit that they have arrived and think they are wealthy.

Dana Point was a glorious place to be 40 years ago as was much if not all of s cal.Now???? I suppose you still have the weather?

Why do ya think so many of the old timers are getting out? If you knew what it was like back in the day you know it ain't the same no more. Adios amigo.The newbies don't know no different.

I do believe that "Cullinan" is Afrikaans for "Bloated Gremlin".

They will be driven by classless people whose taste is in their ass. In the age of Trump, they should sell like hotcakes.

Not that there weren't already a lot of lowlifes w a few dollars in the world.

I've commissioned my Cullinan in Dark Indigo. With a matching brolly of course.

Then it's off to to Balmoral for grouse. Ta-ta.

We maintain a 79 Silver Shadow for a client. Once you get the car up to date on maintenance they require nothing alarming to keep them running. Just make sure all of the car is gone over.

I also love the interior design and materials.

A major draw for RR for me is the use of billet machined polished metal, there is a noticeable difference in the radius of the curves and overall design of the part that can't be achieved any other way.

Even just a tuck of the car seen in a parking lot and my eyes key in to the difference in how it is made from everything else.
