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.
