Rolls-Royce has unveiled the Rolls-Royce Six Senses concept at the Beijing motor show. The bespoke luxury model “ignites the senses for sight, taste, touch, sound and aroma”, as well as the sense of “surprise and delight”, according to the firm.

Interior features of the car include a Walnut Burr veneer, soft grain leather seats and headlining and deep pile lambswool rugs. Standard equipment on the Six Senses comprises an upgraded audio system, panoramic sunroof, a drinks cooler with etched drinks flutes and a luxury bespoke luggage set. The concept’s exterior is finished in pearlescent Carrara White.

Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös describes the Six Senses concept as “a luxurious environment designed for the most discerning of individuals”.

Rolls-Royce has also unveiled its new Phantom Extended Wheelbase for the Chinese market. The extended car’s new user interface features a large 8.8-inch centre display and 3D mapping. Also standard are front, rear and top-view camera systems to aid parking.

Power is courtesy of the firm’s 6.8-litre V12 petrol engine, which is mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

The Americans can keep their cup-holders. I want etched drink flutes in all my cars.

The current understanding is that there are 20 to 30 senses.

So which sense does this relate to?

Nausea? Balance? Limb position?

I like it!

I think its everything RR should be,it looks heavy and elegant in the same time, luxurious and powerful too.

Just don't make SUV of it!
