I often wondered what would have happened if Rolls-Royce ever put an EDSEL grille on a Rolls?

Those are the people who do not care much about gas prices, as I doubt it will be very fuel efficient.

That would finally put them in the same boat as the rest of the automakers. Probably a good call.

All names that only the elites with $$$ to burn can consider.

SUV? Sure, why not? They can afford fuel at any price just like a car at any price.

I hope Rolls-Royce reconsiders this step. I can't imagine a Rolls-Royce SUV, they build a first class car and jet engines for air planes.

If it ain't broke...RR is iconic, it is not mainsteam. Me thinks an aristocratic brand should remain in light...
