Imagine going back in time 60 years and telling a Brit who'd be owning RR.

Well, it's not a roadster, it's not a Rolls-Royce (machined aluminum 
grill indeed). it's definitely teutonic like the BMW Panzer (er, sorry - 
Phantom.  Freudian slip.).  I think the smaller curved grill is a 
precursor of things to come,  I think the last RR has already been built 
and I'm glad I own one.
