A very unusual Apparition - the new Rolls-Royce concept car

It's strange, it's elegant and it's impressive but most of all its extraordinary. Of course we're talking about the new Rolls-Royce Apparition, a seven meter concept car limousine that has broken all the known rules in terms of design.
The author of this four wheels masterpiece is Jeremy Westlund a student designer that wanted to do something new and as you see, he succeeded.
While the front side of the car resembles somehow with the Phantom, the Apparition abounds in unusual design features like the spare wheel cleverly fitted into the bodywork, similar to those classic 1930's Rolls-Royces and the rear windows that maintain the same design as the headlight. Also, the Apparition has an open cockpit for the driver and mahogany inserts on the rims that complete the yacht-style appearance of the car.
As Westlund said himself, he wanted to draw a bridge between the history and the future of the British luxury car manufacturer, something that has never been done before.
Overall, even if very impressive, this isn't a real car and what you can see in our pictures below is just a 1:4 scale model measuring not more than two meters.
