Rolls-Royce = Scary!

Am I am the only one here that finds the Rolls-Royce cars a little bit scary. Just their look, the presence of a rolls. It frightens me.

Dont get me wrong. They are perfectly made cars....but just a bit too "scary" for me.

i had the same thing when i first saw the RR Phantom. it looked dark and evil to me, not nearly as innosence as Rolls's have been before
i think the name enforces the scary, dark side of the car

It's meant to have presence. If you don't like that, get a Maybach

I drove behind a Phantom last week. Me in the Vel Satis behind the Phantom. Two weird looking and rare cars. He sure was stepping on it, I had a hard time keeping up.

personally. i hate them, because to me, they seem not scary, but just butt-fugly. other than that, its another rich-person car. prefer the Maybach over this.

Ive seen a lot of Rolls Royce Phantoms around in London. When they first came out I thought ahhhh attack of the giant carrot peeler. Cos the grill is rather GRAND. But now, after seeing a white one (which happened to be P.diddypuffs) I love them. Nothing wrong with them at all. It was a car that was built to scare...anyone driving in front. Its the LUXURY SALOON car of the world (aswell as maybach), so why not let it have right of way on the road! Well not that you'd wanna drive in front for too long, cos you'll get gobbled up. And for the person who said they are ugly...slap yourself, silly person! Take a good look, then look at a New Nissan Micra in Green, then pass a judgement on the RRP

Dont like the wheels either...look a bit cheap on that pic up there^^^^

Maybe it is there presence that is scary. I dont know. Ive sat in a few of them before too. They are very comfortable...but still a bit scary inside. The smell inside is very strong. Maybe I am just afraid of rich people and it smells rich inside...haha. I dunno how that makes sense...oh well!

Of course it's scary! It's for rich people to push everyone else off the road!

The Phantom is scary. What did you expect when the Teutons decided to attempt to build a Rolls-Royce? Der grosser.
