Bruce Wayne always rides in style, so why shouldn't Batman? This new take on the Batmobile retains elements from the 1989 movie and 90s animated series, while featuring a skinny take on Rolls-Royce's grille. There's even a crystal Spirit of Ecstasy bonnet ornament. Just because the Dark Knight is spending an evening fighting crime, doesn't mean he shouldn't be comfortable. Look closely for the tip of the jet engine peeking out the back, it would only make sense for this ride to use one of Rolls' turbines for power, too.
Rolls-Royce Classic Sports Car
Rolls-Royce puts an emphasis on luxury over sportiness. But what if the company saw the success of vehicles combining performance and opulence in the late 70s and 80s like the R107 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class or Jaguar XJ-S and decided that it needed to compete?
Such a vehicle could have looked something like this. With a design that resembles a late-production Jaguar E-Type but with an emphasis on an angular body rather than the classic Jag's curves, the long-bonnet-short-deck layout just isn't a natural fit for this era of Rolls. Maybe the company made the right decision not trying to enter this segment back then.
Now that Rolls-Royce has the Cullinan competing in the SUV market, this rendering imagines a smaller sibling with a coupe-like rear. This vehicle would fulfil a similar role as the way the Ghost and Phantom saloons offer two choices in size for the company's luxury-focused customers.
Rolls-Royce Flying Car
Once upon a time, the part of Rolls-Royce responsible for building automobiles, and the section assembling aero engines were part of the same company. The two sides parted ways in 1973.
This rendering imagines what might happen if the aerospace and automotive parts of Rolls-Royce could come together once again and pool their respective talents. This flying car would provide the ultimate in luxury by offering a pillowy ride and never having to worry about being stuck in traffic.
We can't imagine how bad things would have to be for Rolls-Royce and parent company BMW for them to consider entering the family hatch market. Still, if such dire times ever happen, this render shows that a little Rolls might not be too ugly.
The MPV market is not the cash cow it once was, because crossovers are taking over as the default way to haul a family. If it built this, though, Rolls-Royce might be able to reinvigorate interest in these vehicles.
A Rolls people carrier's ample interior room would be perfect for Prince William and Kate Middleton to arrive at Buckingham Palace with Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis in tow. It would make a great replacement for The Apprentice's VW Transporters, too.
Rolls-Royce Pickup Truck
Just when you thought pick-ups couldn't get posher than the Mercedes-Benz X-Class, you're presented with this... With the Cullinan's engineering complete, Rolls-Royce could take a saw to the cargo area and have an immediate entry into this lucrative segment.
The first people to roll up at the garden section of Homebase and start loading the Rolls pickup's bed with bags of compost might get some very confused looks, though.
Yes, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan puts an SUV into the brand's portfolio, but it's not something you'd want to take to the trails at Moab or on a serious overlanding expedition. However, this rendering imagines such a rugged machine by giving the front end the wheel-exposing bumper from a Jeep Wrangler and big arches to match.
The shorter overhang, meatier rubber, and extra ground clearance might make wealthy adventurers feel a little more willing to take their ultra-posh SUV into the wilderness.
Being a truck driver is a hard job that requires long hours of constant concentration. A Rolls-Royce big rig wouldn't do anything to lessen that workload, but at least the drivers of this tractor would be able to enjoy sumptuous luxury with elements like real wood trim, only the best leather hides, and thick woollen carpets.
