The Spectre EV is coming next year, but there’s no word yet on when we’ll see a Rolls-Royce pickup truck. Automotive designer Travis Yang wasn’t going to wait around for an official concept, so he created the Rolls-Royce Britannia Concept. Measuring in at 216.5-inches long, it retains the iconic styling, while adding a large bed and ground clearance to get around any obstacle.

Rolls-Royce Spectre EV Electric Vehicle
The Rolls-Royce Spectre EV is the company’s first all-electric motor car, and it’s a stunner to say the least. Classified as a ‘Ultra-Luxury Electric Super Coupé’, its split headlight treatment is intersected by the widest grille ever bestowed on a Rolls-Royce vehicle, while an aero-tuned Spirit of Ecstasy figurine enhances the vehicle’s impressive drag coefficient, which at just 0.25cd makes Spectre Rolls-Royce’s most aerodynamic yet.

1016 Industries 3D-Printed Body Kit Rolls-Royce Cullinan
Priced from $500,000 USD for the complete vehicle, 1016 Industries’ Rolls-Royce Cullinan is unlike any other as it integrates 3D-printed body parts, including new running lights as well as sweeping fender flares. Customers will be able to choose from non-exposed, partially exposed or partially forged carbon fiber, with each commanding a higher price tag. Considering a standard Rolls-Royce Cullinan retails for $330,000 USD, this modified version commands quite the premium.

Rolls-Royce Spirit of Innovation Electric Airplane Fastest
It’s official, the Rolls-Royce Spirit of Innovation is the world’s fastest all-electric aircraft after hitting a maximum speed of 387.4 mph during one of its record-breaking runs, as certified by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI). It’s powered by a 400kW (500+ hp) electric powertrain that draws power from the most power-dense propulsion battery pack ever assembled in aerospace.

Klassen Armored Rolls-Royce Cullinan
Germany-based tuner Klassen has built an armored Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV designed to go anywhere, literally. Featuring a CEN 1063 BR6 ballistic protection level, which means it comes equipped with a reinforced ceiling and floor that can withstand the full force of two DM51 hand-grenades exploding simultaneously. That’s not all, its multi-layer bulletproof glass withstands ammunition from a high-powered rifle, while a special overlap system ensures bullets cannot penetrate the door seals.

Rolls-Royce Nuclear Reactor Mining Moon Mars
Many already know how lucrative asteroid mining could be, but what about scavenging the Moon and Mars for precious metals? Rolls-Royce is developing a nuclear reactor just for that purpose. More specifically, they are building a micro-nuclear reactor that could not only be used to propel spacecraft, but also installed on other celestial bodies to provide energy for drilling, processing, and storage during mining operations.

Rolls-Royce Spirit of Innovation Electric Plane Aircraft First Flight
Rolls-Royce makes luxury vehicles, jet engines, and now, all-electric aircraft. One of them, the “Spirit of Innovation”, recently completed its first 15-minute flight after taking off from the UK Ministry of Defense’s Boscombe Down site. Powering this one-seat airplane is a 6,000 cell battery pack with a three-motor powertrain generating 400kW (500+ hp), making it the most power-dense battery pack every assembled for an aircraft. The company hopes said the aircraft will eventually achieve a top speed of over 300 mph. Read more for the video, additional pictures and information.

Rolls-Royce Boat Tail
Think of the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail as a luxury yacht with wheels, which fuses a historical classic body type with a thoroughly contemporary design. It may still be powered by the factory twin-turbocharged 6.75L V12 engine making 563 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, but just about everything else is bespoke on this custom coachbuild. Read more for two videos, additional pictures and information.

Rolls-Royce Drag Racer
From the back, this may appear to be a standard 1974 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, but upon closer inspection, you’ll realize that it’s actually a custom-built drag racer. What stands out the most is its General Motors-sourced supercharged 462 cubic-inch V8 engine, complete with a 200-hp nitrous oxide booster fitted in the pack for that extra jump. Not your standard race car, this one has a fully custom leather interior that offers luxurious seating for four. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.
