Rolls-Royce (RR) is a well-known luxury automaker, having made its name by producing vehicles with prices comparable to a small country’s GDP. Thus, the vast majority of people on Earth can only hope to one day afford to purchase an RR vehicle.
Except, maybe, if you’re a Pakistani and you believe in the “fake it till you make it” school of thought. The recent, highly commendable development of a local RR Phantom ripoff is being filmed and widely shared online.
This video was filmed in Pakistan and appears to show a blue RR Phantom clone from the seventh generation pulling up to a store and parking in front of it. The long bonnet, similar alloy wheels, and rear-hinged suicide passenger door are all lifted straight from RR’s original design.

However, true car aficionados will recognize the converted vehicle as a 9th-generation S140 Toyota Crown, a fine luxury vehicle in its own right.
Some Internet users are making fun of the vehicle, but others are praising the artistry that went into recreating RR’s flagship limousine.
It looks almost identical to the original, right down to the long hood, harp-shaped grille, Spirit of Ecstacy emblem, and front headlights and auxiliary lights.
So far, information about the car’s owner and whereabouts is sketchy. CarBase, however, thinks this is a commendable effort.
Rolls-Royce Boat Tail Design
The design was summarised in an article published in Lifestyle Asia. Rolls-Boat Royce’s Tail may look like a futuristic Phantom from the front, but the yacht-like J-Class design of its rear is where the real magic happens.
Cars with boat tails were stylish and fast in the 1950s. They were frequently clad in wooden planks to give the impression of an old-fashioned wooden boat.
The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is not a convertible, but rather has a fully removable roof that can be stored in a compartment behind the rear seats. You won’t believe it, but it was once a cherished family heirloom and is now a luxurious picnic basket.
What are the features of the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail?
The most expensive car in the world has two side-opening lids. Expensive embossed silverware, glasses, napkins, and plates are all stored inside.
Champagne coolers are available, and they can be customized to the color and shape of the purchaser’s bottle of choice.
The two stools, designed in Italy, fold out to use as cocktail tables in this luxury vehicle. You can find a sunshade stashed in the hollow between the swinging doors.
