Imagine going back in time 60 years and telling a Brit who'd be owning RR.

Well, it's not a roadster, it's not a Rolls-Royce (machined aluminum
grill indeed). it's definitely teutonic like the BMW Panzer (er, sorry -
Phantom. Freudian slip.). I think the smaller curved grill is a
precursor of things to come, I think the last RR has already been built
and I'm glad I own one.
