In: Concept Cars, FUNNY, WTF
what the hell were they thinking? I cant believe RR made something so classless.
Classless? You have a odd sense of class. This is a remake of a classic style. Do some research.
The fabled 'Spirit of Ecstasy', that graceful lady-type on the bonnet of a Rolls Royce, will celebrate 100 years of being.
On 6 February 1911 Charles Sykes first registered the statue, designed to prevent rich chavs from going all early-1900s Max Power and modding their bonnets.
And what you see above is the fevered imaginings of one Jeremy Westerlund, student at California's Art Center. A student who has presumably decided to pay homage via this astonishing concept.
The 'Apparition' takes cues from a bygone age when chauffeurs drove sans roof with passengers cocooned in the back. Akin to an Art Deco sailing boat, the Roller is built 1:4 to scale – and still measures up at six feet long, making an actual version four feet longer than a Phantom.
We'll bring you more on the 100th birthday as it drops, so stay tuned. One thought immediately sprang to mind when we first clapped eyes on this: would one require one's utility belt and cowl this evening
that is SICK.
The best part? This is only a 1/4 scale size of the original design.
can i see it with someone sat in it … bet thatll look crap
Great creativity and nice job on the details. It is an astonishing concept and you did pay homage to a bygone era in such a modern far out way. I bet RR would think it a proper due. Pay no attention to the negative comments that some will spew. Every nice car or truck on here gets its share of jealous haters that can do nothing more than that and they are the losers in their cocoon of loathe and regret. You are the creator, the gladiator in the arena wielding sword and steel. The victory is yours and yours alone. Leave them to their desolate dungeons of despair and doubt and Just have fun, create and Throttle On. Do some Chive-in while your at it too. Good job Jeremy. GO!
