A stretched roller has premiered in China clad in silver and gold.
'The bigger the better' and 'size matters' are pertinent phrases in China where people shell out big bucks for extended-wheelbase automobiles and SUV's, and pretty deep pockets will be required to pick up the latest customized Rolls which was unveiled at the Chengdu Auto Show. The stretched Rolls-Royce Phantom has been modified by tuning firm Star Customs, extending the middle section of the British marque by four meters and enhancing its exterior with touches of gold and silver.
The grille is made entirely from gold and pure gold rims are also an optional extra. For $2.36 million some may argue this is a bargain compared to the gold plated Phantom that was priced at a cool $8 million, but then again some people have more money than sense.
