The British manufacture builds undoubtedly the most luxurious cars on the planet with the rear quarters resembling more of a living room than back seats. With every gadget and gizmo imaginable Rolls-Royce to this day still claim that the loudest thing inside their cars at 100MPH is the clock, and though that is a bold claim it is one that also rings true. Over its history models have come and gone but one thing has remained the same, the flying lady on the bonnet…
