What is the ultimate driving experience? BMW claims to offer the ultimate driving experience, but that really is just a matter of opinion, one that is based on what you want from a car. Some people just want convenience, so any econobox will do. Some want a green, environmentally-friendly, fuel-efficient vehicle so a hybrid or electric vehicle will do. Some want driving excitement, so they will want a sports car of some sort. Others will want the ultimate in luxury, and if that is the case, then only a Rolls-Royce will do.
Rolls-Royces have long been considered the best luxury cars because of how long they have been around; their longevity means that they have decades of continuous refinements and improvements behind them, far more than any other luxury automaker. Those other automakers may come close to the quality of a Rolls-Royce, but they can never match it, much less surpass it. Now let us take a closer look at what makes the Rolls-Royce driving experience so special.
Rolls-Royce designs each model to have its own individual personality and identity and they design the interior of each vehicle to perfectly match that identity. That gives drivers a cohesive experience from the time they look at the car to the time they get behind the wheel or settle into one of the passenger seats. The interior of every Rolls-Royce is handcrafted by expert artisans using only the finest materials available.
The wood is sourced from Western Europe and North America and its use in each Rolls-Royce is the perfect combination of art and technology. The wood is laser cut so that the craftspeople at the Rolls-Royce Woodshop can use the various layers to design unique patterns in each vehicle. The marquetry in Rolls-Royce’s vehicles is world class, matching or exceeding that of the finest furniture makers. Each precisely cut veneer of wood is sanded, lacquered, and polished before being placed in the dashboard and console of a Rolls-Royce. Each Rolls-Royce interior uses up to 46 pieces of wood, all precisely assembled to create an environment of incomparable luxury.
The leather used in the upholstery of each Rolls-Royce vehicle is among the finest in the world. Only leather taken from the hides of Simmental bulls are used. The reason is that these bulls are raised in a healthy and humane way so that they only feed on the finest grass. They are also raised in moist, temperate climates so their skin does not get dried out. This gives them smooth, unblemished hides that are free of any imperfections. Rolls-Royce tests each piece of leather rigorously to make sure that it can stand up to the wear and tear of regular use. Furthermore, the leather of a Rolls-Royce never squeaks because their painters use a special finish that prevents that from happening. The Rolls-Royce Leathershop makes certain that every piece is colored to perfection regardless of whether the interior is standard or bespoke.
When you’re driving—or being driven in—a Rolls-Royce, it is hard to tell whether the car is moving or not. That is because every Rolls-Royce has a ride that is so smooth and silent, it feels like you are driving on a cloud. The silence comes from the expert fit and finish of the body panels as well as advanced sound insulation that makes the interior of each Rolls-Royce a place of complete calm and serenity.
The smoothness comes from the advanced suspension technology used in each vehicle to ensure that the occupants of the vehicle are completely insulated from all the imperfections of the road. Rolls-Royce cars use technology like Active Roll Stabilization, Variable Damping Control, and air springs on all four wheels to ensure the smoothest possible ride. The air suspension is sensitive enough to compensate for a change in seating position of the rear seat passengers. The on-board computer makes load calculations every 2.5 milliseconds to ensure that the ride remains as smooth as possible for the occupants.
Experience a Rolls-Royce For Yourself
Regardless of whether you are the driver or a passenger, a Rolls-Royce will provide you with the ultimate driving experience when it comes to luxury. No other vehicle brand comes close. However, mere words can scarcely do it justice; the best way to truly understand the level of technology, craftsmanship, and refinement that goes into each Rolls-Royce is to drive one for yourself. So rent one for yourself to experience a level of luxury that you will never forget.
