You won’t feel the blues with the new Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé Waterspeed Collection. Rolls-Royce commemorates Sir Malcolm Campbell’s breaking the record for water-speed in 1937. The whole car comes painted in Maggiore Blue, based on Campbell’s boat. Even the engine is painted in Maggiore Blue, the first time a Rolls-Royce engine has been painted to match the exterior. It also features a brushed-steel deck, hand-engraved door sills and a 453 hp.

Rolls-Royce Wraith: Too Fast For Grey Poupon
Rides By on Mar 7, 2013
The name Rolls-Royce conjures up the epitome of luxury; a bespectacled gentleman with a very fancy white mustache applying a rich lather of Grey Poupon to his bars of pure gold. But with the Wraith ($319,000), that all changes. The most powerful Rolls ever does 0 to 60 in 4.4 seconds. Of course there’s still an insane amount of exquisiteness to behold. The satellite-aided transmission uses GPS data to gauge the upcoming road conditions and then automatically select the best gear for the approaching real estate. And how about some 1,000 fiber optic lamps woven into the roof’s lining? Damn. You can’t be spilling mustard on that.
