Try to imagine, you are in your Rolls, ensconced in what seems to be the most comfortable car on earth and suddenly you realize that you don't hear anything else than the wind passing by. Is that even possible? Well, not yet but the future sounds really promising.
Actually, even last week, the new Rolls Royce CEO Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes made a small statement about the future alternative-fueled Rolls-Royce cars. And it seems that the British high luxury sedan manufacturing company is thinking about some alternatives to the classical gasoline engines.
Still there's nothing to be seen in the close future and even if there will be an alternatively powered Rolls, the required electrical power train will have to be a really sturdy one because the latest Phantom weights no less than 2.5 tons (5622 pounds) a weight that today is carried by the massive 453-horsepower 6.75-liter V-12 engine.
Now there is another issue here. We all know that Rolls-Royce is now part of the BMW group and if the Bavarian car maker will launch its own electrical powered cars there won't be long until we'll see on the streets the first electric powered Rolls.
