Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe by Pininfarina is Plain Ugly

Please excuse us for the simple-minded title, but it’s all we can say about this vehicle. Most people say there’s no such thing as an ugly Rolls-Royce and we used to agree with them... until today.

Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe by Pininfarina
What you see above is reportedly a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe styled by Pininfarina. It was photographed by a Luxury4Play forum member that claims the owner payed no less than $2.3 million (€1.75 / £1.49 million) to have it built. If this piece of information is no baloney, the owner must be bananas, period!

Sure, beauty is all about being subjective, but come on, just look at it. The 1930s-like paint scheme is so out of place with those six-spoke wheels, not to mention the lateral shark vents. And moreover, what’s with the rear? Did someone put the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the unique Maybach Exelero in a hotel room over night? Sheesh...

As one forum member puts it, this sure looks like something Scrooge McDuck would drive. We still hope this is just a very unfortunate joke so be sure to have that grain of salt on your desk.

And if you’re feeling nauseous, check out this true-blue Pininfarina beauty called Sergio.
