Salon Prive Ladies day (2011) Part II

Check out the struts on the clamshell! 
Rolls-Royce
The even quieter Rolls-Royce 102EX. I've never sat in such a hushed car - perfect for wafting around Salon Prive in

Don't pour 95 RON in here! You can in fact charge the electric Rolls on an induction plate, without the need for any wires

My view from the passenger seat as we creep silently around Syon Park. That leather floor is worryingly posh - I'm worried my shoes may scuff it...

Look: 0L/100km. That's the sort of fuel consumption that most Rolls-Royce owners can only dream of 
Dymaxion
This has to be by far the oddest thing at Salon Prive 2011. A cross between a car and minibus, there is enough floor space for a picnic in the back of this Dymaxion
Dymaxion
Train carriage meets garden shed meets VW camper van. Love it
Dymaxion
Looks more plane than car. Where's the rudder?
Dymaxion
Time for an instrumental
Dymaxion
This must be some kind of wind-up...
Dymaxion
 Yes, it's a wind-up car. Marvellously pointless

The bravery award goes to the Rolls-Royce that went for a dip. Apparently the Prince of Afghanastan was holidaying by the shores of Lake Leman when he overshot the bend near St Gingolph and plunged 60 feet into the lake, according to a Swiss newspaper in 1939. All survived to tell the tale
Dymaxion
Tellingly, this Rolls wasn't let anywhere near the water at Syon Park
