I watched the live reveal. Granted, this car is not even in my realm, but it essentially looks no different than a 14 year old Phantom. With a new Rolls Royce coming every decade and a half, you'd think they'd actually do something new.

As much as I criticize other makes for designs that look like a rehash of the past, this might be an example where a lack of originality probably works heavily in their favor (a la Porsche 911).

The tech seems fun (nearly 300 lbs of sound deadening??? Rear suicide doors that close themselves so that the attendants have to sweat too much???). Interesting that RR apparently thinks enough of MB's Magic Carpet ride to use the same idea.

I'd love to be able to take a ride around the block in one of these.

Have sedans switched to 2+2 configurations? I always thought that most have bench seats even if contoured, in the back

To be fair, there's not much you can do with a big, rectangular slab of metal on four wheels, which the RR pretty much is.
