Default Revealed: Rolls-Royce Celestial concept

BBC TopGear

Quote:
Luxury car maker Rolls-Royce has unveiled a limousine where travelling celebrities will be in good company as its entire roof lining has been turned into a starry night.

Designers spent nine months perfecting the lining to make sure it is an exact copy of the sky on the night the first Rolls-Royce Phantom came off the line.

Using more than 1,000 fibre optic lights, the replica of the sky has been given the stamp of approval by experts at the South Downs Planetarium in Chichester.

Alright. I find it to be nothing special. Save for the 'exact copy' deal haven't Limousines always had this :o.

I wish they would update the car. It seems a bit dated now, exterior that is, Especially next to the more modern looking Ghost.
The Interior still seems with the times yet retro all the while opulent!.

Agreed with Maky - seems like a giant faile! Mercedes' Magic Sky Control has more thought & tech put into it.
