Wheels.12

"Idle" Chatter

So I was thinking about cars and customization and then I thought
about things like Mercedes and how you used to have to go outside
the company to AMG if you wanted to insane up your care, same
thing with BMW and Alpina and you STILL need to go outside Porsche
to Ruf, and of course this lead me to Ferrari who got paid over
$5,000,000 by Eric Clapton to create a special one off Ferrari
exclusively for him, to the point of supposedly destroying all
notes/blueprints to the car after it was delivered, which is
pretty dumb 'cause hey! accidents  happen.

This lead me to Rolls Royce website, specifically their Bespoke
program, but then my eye was caught by a vid in that section
labeled Coach, wherein apparently you, the average multi-
millionaire who I'm pretty sure has ZERO experience designing
ANYTHING, let alone luxury automobiles can apparently sit down
with the design/engineering team from Rolls Royce and design your
OWN UNIQUE Rolls Royce.

Which on one hand is pretty awesome.

But on the other, no design experience. Remember that Simpson's
episode when Homer designed a car and drove his long lost brother
into bankruptcy? I SURE DO!!! That was back when the Simpsons
didn't SUCK RANCID DONG, before Comic Book Guy had ever uttered,
"Worst. Episode. Ever.

Anyway, of course Roll Royce would expect a customer who wants
this Coach thing to have class and refinement and class and regal
bearing and class and knows which fork to use during a 12 course
meal. Oh, yes, you also will literally need and shipping box full
of cash to pay for this car.

Which is good but then there are billionaires like Donald Trump
out there who have ZERO of those qualities.

Which led me to wonder exactly what if any limits, this
Coach/bespoke program at Rolls Royce has. What if a customer
wanted to have the seats covered in elephant skin or gorilla fur
and trim in ivory from elephant tusks? What if they wanted a nude
Playboy Playmate or Penthouse Pet painted on the hood?

Jil being the auto journalist, do you have an info on whether
Rolls Royce would say yea or nay to those ideas in the above
paragraph?
