Our Video of the Week this go round shows the creation of one of the single most recognizable features of any British car – the Rolls-Royce grill. The grill of the Rolls has been copied, satirized, objectified and outright stolen since it first came on the scene. What’s more, they have been used as the inspiration for everything from barbecue grill and candy, to jewelry and furniture. And seriously, let’s not talk about all the other cars they have been grafted on to in a failed attempt to make the poor thing look “classy”. Nope, the grill just doesn’t seem to look quite right on anything except the cars of Rolls-Royce on with they were originally fitted.
Once you are done watching that fine bit of hand-crafting, take a look at the new Rolls-Royce and what might be called “hand-crafted by computer”.
Quite a difference I would say. The times they are a changing.
