    We don't typically cover boats here – this is, after all, Autoblog and not Aquablog – but every so often something comes along that makes us want to dip our toes in the water, whether it's a Jaguar-designed speedboat, a Gulf-liveried megayacht or a Lamborghini-powered Riva Aquarama. ...

    1399563060

    For seven years, Rolls-Royce got by on the Phantom line alone, expanding on the original saloon with a long-wheelbase version, a coupe and the convertible.

    Report: Rolls-Royce planning plug-in hybrid
    1394461800

    Rolls-Royce is not the first marque you'd think of when it comes to environmentally friendly transportation. Its cars are big – often the size of SUVs – and pack ginormous twelve-cylinder engines displacing over six and a half liters. Those upright Parthenon grilles can't be very ...

    Geneva: Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II rolls in with some subtle updates [w/video]
    1394031540

    Downsizing is a relative term – especially when it comes to a Rolls-Royce. But that's just what the British luxury automaker did with the release of the Ghost in 2010. Sure, it's over seventeen and a half feet long (over eighteen in Extended Wheelbase form), but that's still shorter than ...

    Teased: Rolls-Royce releases sketch of Phantom Drophead Coupe Bespoke Waterspeed Collection
    1391635740

    A limited-edition Rolls-Royce Phantom is something of an oxymoron. The company only sold 3,630 cars last year, and even fewer of those were its flagship Phantom. However, that isn't keeping the company from regularly revealing even more limited editions of its already hyper-exclusive cars. This ...

    Wonder why Rolls-Royce makes so many special editions for the Chinese market?
