We are often told, when something is designated as the best of its kind, that it’s the

The car next to it is a Bentley…what are the odds of those two cars being parked next to each other like that?

At one time, the Rolls-Royce slogan was, “The loudest thing in the car is…the clock”.

I wonder how the Rolls, the acme of car luxury (and excellence…when it was not defined by fuel economy!) , has adapted to the changing times and rising fuel prices…
