Grey Poupon Lost Footage

Back in the early 1980′s Grey Poupon Dijon mustard launched an ad campaign that went down as one of histories best. It showed two Rolls-Royce sedans pull up alongside each other, and with the simple flick of a window switch, the world was introduced to the phrase, “Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?” The ad was brilliant, but apparently, 30 years later some controversy arose around a portion of lost footage that hasn’t been seen until now.

The 10 Most Expensive Cars, According To Forbes

2011 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

The Bugatti Super Sport tops the list.

If you ever see me giving stock tips on RideLust, be afraid. I’m not a “play the stock market” kind of guy, and every spare dollar I’ve ever made has gone into cars, bikes, racing or travel (usually centered around cars, bikes or racing). With that in mind, you have a certain right to be skeptical when Forbes publishes a list of the most expensive cars. First, it’s only a snapshot in time, as new supercars are introduced every year. Next, there’s no clarification on where the prices are from, so I assume they’re a manufacturer’s list price, translated in to U.S. dollars. That’s hardly an accurate representation, as cars typically sell for higher prices in the EU than they do in the United States. Finally, any car’s price is based on supply and demand: since the entire run of Bugatti Veyron Super Sports has been spoken for, good luck finding one at the list price of $2.6 million.

SEMA 2010 Rolls Royce

The last time I ventured out to SEMA was in 2008. I spent five days in Las Vegas and by the end of the trip I was ready to blown my brains out. The Las Vegas Convention Center is MASSIVE, and even with attending the show for 5-days straight I still was not able to take it all in. This year the guys from Cardomain/Autoholics are out in SEMA in full force and are bringing out some major coverage for everyone to see. However there was one post in particular that caught my eye, so I wanted to post it up. Rob Enaudi, Editor-in-Chief of Cardomain was apparently walking through the Giovanna wheel booth and snapped off about 15 pics of high-end cars clad with terribly gaudy wheels. To me these wheels not only ruin the overall look and feel of most of these rides, but they can also seriously detract from their performance. Listen, I’m all for aftermarket wheels, I just prefer ones that actually look good.

The Truth Behind the Super Fly Cadillac…

Super Fly Cadillac
For those of you born after 1977 the movie “Super Fly” most likely means nothing to you. However, as a kid growing up in Brooklyn “Super Fly” was legendary, as was his Pimp-o-licious 1971 Cadillac Eldorado. You see this movie was made in the New York City that I remember as a young kid and a teenager. Times Square was still full of strip clubs and arcades and the sections of the city like Tribeca and Soho were still riddled with a rather bad element. In today’s day and age the Big Apple looks like Disney Land and is considered to be one of the safest cities on the planet. Back then though when the Pimps and Ho’s still worked the streets the city had a whole different vibe to it.

Seeing Ghosts? You Will Be

2010 Rolls Royce Ghost

Rolls Royce Ghosts, that is, unless you live in an old house, under high tension wires, with a stream running underneath it. Then all bets are off, especially if you have a vivid imagination.

Back to the topic: Rolls Royce is enjoying a resurgence in sales, thanks largely to the popularity of their entry-level Ghost sedan. Starting at a modest (for Rolls Royce, anyway) $245,000, the Ghost is $135,000 less expensive than a Rolls Royce Phantom sedan, and nearly $200k less than a Phantom Drophead Coupe.

Rolls Royce Phantom

I wonder if she's part of the 'Bespoke' special order program...

RPM magazine, a Kuwaiti publication for auto enthusiasts, has named the Rolls Royce Phantom as its inaugural luxury car of the year. The Phantom features a unique platform and a body that is constructed primarily of aluminum. Power comes from a 6.75 liter V12 motor that produces 453 horsepower and 530 ft.-lbs. of torque. Since Rolls Royce buyers don’t do pedestrian things like shift gears, a six speed auto is the only transmission choice.

There are times in life when you just need to ask yourself the question: Why? All to often in the automotive world customizers and tuning companies try and strut their stuff to see if they can improve on what the manufactures put out. Some succeed and others fail miserably. Choosing the car to put under the knife is an even bigger challenge as some car companies produce automobiles that are so good that they really don’t need any improvements.

RR 1

You order a bedroom set for your son, but when it arrives, the mattress you thought would be included in the deal is missing. What do you do? If you’re Robert Caton of Hampshire, UK, you guzzle two bottles of cheap whiskey, hop in your ‘83 Rolls-Royce, and plow through the store in a drunken, poorly conceived rampage. Oh, and not on the first try either – he made two unsuccessful attempts to raze the store before finally succeeding in careening the Roller through the window, causing roughly $100,000 worth of damage.
