Seeing a Cheesy Rolls for the first time. I must say it is a head turner, but cannot imagine elite businessmen sitting in this car.

Considering what a normal Rolls has, I am wondering what else may be added to the two 'most expensive' cars

The answer is Gold. These 2 cars will feature "gold plated accents" on the interior and exterior of the car.

LMAO! Looks like he tested the colors on his hair before finalizing the color for the car!

Well, It is not the first time this guy choosing the weird color combo for a RR.

Rolls is a car for old money, not the nouveau rich. The classiest color on the exterior of a rolls is black (with the brushed aluminium bonnet) ; & thats the end of it

Someone tell him that something called Ferrari and Lamborghini exist for his choice of colors!
This guy has got it all wrong! Wonder how would he spec his supercar


But whatever. Buying 30 Rolls at once is a feat in itself. And as far as I am informed, China / Hong Kong / Macau have duty structures identical to those of India's. Must have cost him a bomb. Err... nuclear bomb, rather

There is such a class of people who opt to buy things/cars/homes in such bizarre and out of the world colors/designs. They think very differently and no one from us even in our wildest dreams can think of such a thing; but to each his own.

For most of us, everything here, right from his hair to his suit to the hotel's architecture to the RR's, feels brassy, but for him it is the epitome of beauty.

I feel, the cream de la creme billionaires for whom the two RR's will be reserved, would prefer a complete white or black Phantom rather than this garish red.

I can only view Mr. Stephen Hung as the Lady Gaga of the hotel business..

If all the keys are in one box I wish I could see the sight of all 30 RRs in the parking lot

With that color he has chosen (if that is the case), then certainly he is buying a fleet of 'fire-trucks' :(

May be I am the only one or one of the few to feel this way - A Rolls is a Rolls is a Rolls, any day, any color and anywhere in the World. Would I like to soak in the experience of riding one some day, Hell Yeah. Would the color matter? No way. What can take away the splendor of the twin Rs or the majestic beauty of the "beast"? Nothing to my imagination.

The colour is somewhat, rather VERY VERY wierd for a RR.....

But, to think about it from the owner's perspective, the rest of the hotel from the picture, must've cost in a few billion dollars and the cost of the RRs will be a small fraction of the overall cost.....ultimately you need to have all these bells & whistles I guess to impress the kind of clientele you are looking at. Not sure how much will these cars be used. Think Swarowski crystal glassware, Rosenthal cutlery and such like.

I remember The Imperial Hotel in Royal Palms (now closed) also has an RR parked - makes a statement but would not have been used much.

Trademark red-dyed hair, a wear-once-only haute couture wardrobe and a fleet of supercars - including a Bentley with bright red gold-flecked bodywork and a sports car so unique it's called the Stephen Hung Edition by its makers, Pagani Huayra - are the affectations of a lifestyle that leaves the casual observer in little doubt that the purveyor of pure opulence knows what he's talking about.
Now you know where to get that from!

I can only imagine what magic he has worked on the bosses of RR to part with their legacy. Even Photoshop would cringe applying those menacing colours on RR!

Way to go wackadoodle!
