Skepta Uses Rolls-Royce Phantom As Recording Studio [w/Video] 7

With Rolls-Royce and contemporary music culture going hand in hand ever since the dawn of Rock & Roll, it was about time one of these artists actually recorded a track while inside a British luxury car.

MOBO award-winning musician Joseph Junior Adenuga, better known as Skepta, teamed up with Rolls-Royce to record ‘Skepta RR’ while being driven around Switzerland in the all-new Phantom.

“I want to welcome Skepta to the world of Rolls-Royce. He has shown a unique and exciting appreciation of the marque and interpreted Phantom’s credentials as the world’s quietest and most luxurious car with an exceptionally creative track and film,” said Rolls-Royce exec, Torsten Müller-Ötvös.

The all-new Phantom not only features a new and proprietary aluminum space frame, but also more than 130 kg (286 lbs) of sound insulation with a two-layer 6 mm (0.23 inches) glazing.

Unveiled back in July, the new-gen Phantom is powered by a twin-turbocharged 6.75-liter V12, delivering 571 PS (563 HP) and 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of torque to the road. The first 2018 example is set to be auctioned off at the Naples Winter Wine Festival in January.

Rolls-Royce Cullinan Gets Rendered Based On Spy Photos 27

Rolls-Royce is putting the finishing touches on its first crossover and Peisert Design has created some renderings of what the model could look like.

Using previous spy photos of the Cullinan, Peisert Design went to work and created a handful of renderings which seem to accurately predict what the crossover could look like. As you can see in the side-to-side photos, the Cullinan is heavily influenced by the all-new Phantom but it adopts a modified front bumper with larger air intakes. The renderings also show a shorter grille that is flanked by larger headlights.

Unfortunately, the rear of the crossover is pretty plain as the only distinguishing characteristics are suicide rear doors and a heavily raked D-pillar.

Rolls-Royce has been slowly teasing the model and the company has already confirmed the Cullinan will ride on the “Architecture of Luxury” that underpins the Phantom. The car’s twin-turbo 6.75-liter V12 engine – that produces 563 hp (420 kW) and 663 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque – should carryover and it will likely be connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system.

While it won’t be the prettiest Rolls-Royce ever created, the Cullinan will have an opulent interior with wood trim, metallic accents, and premium leather upholstery.

Spofec’s Rolls-Royce Dawn Is An Overdose On Ecstasy 14

Few cars have the kind of presence on the road as a Rolls-Royce. This tuner thinks it can do better, though, with the release of the Spofec Overdose.

Based on the Dawn convertible, the Overdose is the latest release from Novitec’s Rolls customizer, which takes its name from the British marque’s Spirit of Ecstasy mascot.

Limited to just eight examples, the Spofec Overdose punctuates its presence that much more emphatically with a carbon-fiber widebody kit that gives it an extra five inches of width, bringing the drop-top’s stance to nearly seven feet.

To go with the extra width, Spofec has also dropped the air suspension by as much as 1.6 inches, riding on a new set of 22-inch wheels. While it was at it, the tuner also tuned the 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 up to 686 horsepower – a boost of 115 horses to bring it above the Wraith’s output. And to keep it all in check (while reducing unsprung mass), Spofec fitted bigger brakes.

Of course, a wide array of interior customization options are on offer. This is a custom Rolls-Royce, after all. But no matter which way it’s spec’d, the Overdose will hit 62 in 4.6 seconds with the wind in your hair.
