Ask Jeeves to prepare your tea while you spend hours with this

Earlier this month we configured a McLaren Senna with the assistance of two representatives of McLaren Special Operations. In that piece we wrote about few chances there are for the online "shopper" to get a feel for the coachbuilt experience; the Ferrari LaFerrari configurator offered just three color options, for instance, and Bugatti removed the few variables it presented for the Chiron. McLaren didn't build a public configurator for the Senna. It's the Rolls-Royce Cullinan to the rescue &mda


Battling the Bentayga for title of most-coddling sport utility

Why did we ever expect the Rolls-Royce Cullinan to look like anything other than a Phantom on a lift kit, minus the trunk? The Rolls-Royce of SUVs perfectly employs Phantom cues, from the raised hood to the strong shoulder line and coach doors. The English off-roader brings a bunch of brand-redefining firsts with it, including all-wheel drive, an off-road driving mode, and a suspension that actively extends the dampers to keep every wheel on the ground. All of the vehicle's innovations serve the

Honestly, they were all over the place ... just like 2017!

We certainly can't say 2017 was a boring year, so it's with some pleasure that we look back at our most-read car reviews and see that they're all about interesting subjects in one way or another. Despite the vast popularity of mostly soulless crossovers, the cars you most wanted to read about this year tended to possess character, distinctiveness, and in most cases, excellence. Here they are ... 10) 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom First Drive | When only the best will do "Philip Koehn, the engineer d
