Blog: Graeme RobertsRolls-Royce pretty in pink

Graeme Roberts | 11 September 2015

BMW-owned Rolls-Royce makes a lot of its willingness and ability to create a bespoke car. But I wonder what management and a skilled team of craftsman and women from many different trade backgrounds and countries made of the order from the Chinese distributor for this.

The spies at Car News China initially thought the pink paint might have been a local wrap but further digging revealed a car very much crafted that way, inside and out, at the English factory in Sussex. If you like pink, it looks like the usual superb workmanship.

By the way, the CNC boys are also rather good at recording the apparently numerous Rolls-Royce crashes in China. Follow their links and weep.
