The long-wheelbase Phantom will also show off “a selection of classic bespoke interior deisgn elements” including seat piping, mother of pearl centres for interior dials and clock face, Rolls-Royce monogram embroidery for the head restraints and tread plates inscribed with the official name of the Paris motor show: Mondial de l’Automobile Paris 2010.

“In Paris we are demonstrating how we continue to strengthen our position as the pinnacle luxury brand thanks to the enduring appeal of Phantom family and the depth of our bespoke personalisation service,” said Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös.

I want a LWB Phantom Shooting Brake, but it wouldn't be a woody. Aft of the A-pillar it would be finished in limestone ashlar, the B, C and D pillars would be replaced by slim doric columns, a unifying entablature would run all round with a marble frieze above depicting, perhaps, the triumph of the moneyed over the masses, the whole in the Palladian style, with an Adam-inspired interior, or perhaps a painted ceiling in the style of Rubens; your choice. The Ghost Chatsworth?

Quote: "including seat piping, mother of pear centres for interior dials and clock face".

Should read "mother of pearl" - yet another annoying and irritiating Autocar mistake. Whoever types out these articles clearly is as dumb as a stump. One day I hope I will be able to read an Autocar article and find no spelling mistakes. Disgraceful.

I couldn't agree further. Personally I've decided to make it my life mission to read an Autocar article without a spelling mistake - that would surely be a life well spent.

Of course there are Autocar articles, which, unlike this travesty of jounalism, don't have a single word out of thousands spelt incorrectly, but I won't comment on those, I'm just interested in searching for the occasional mote in my neighbours eye to label as 'disgraceful'.

We could all do with more criticism, I believe - there's just not enough of it in the world.

DKW....things is, accepting your irony, if you're the 'Oldest Car Magazine in the World' as Autocar is..you'd think there's be an emphasis on high-journalistic standards, sharp writing, and professionalism. And on the whole, it's still a great magazine. But to ignore frankly piss-poor spelling, grammar, and punctuation (isn't that what journalists are s'posed to be good at after all?..) is not to the benefit of anyone.

I agree it's not worth having your day ruined by, but it's what should separate a great publication from thousands of online pretenders.

Give Autocar a break, being the oldest mag in the world .... do you moan at old people for being a bit slower / blinder / deafer than you? If you do, take a good look in the mirror you sad and intolerant git.

Ladies, ladies....

I do love a good spat before breakfast.

For what it's worth, I think any spelling errors in this day and age are unforgivable, although I'm sure I contribute my fair share.

As this posting seems to have evolved into slag off Autocar online spelling issues, I too have found another one but as I am not sad enough to waste my time and effort to email in a complaint i shall remain schtum as I have no doubt my spelin is not very good. As far as the New Rolls-Royces are concerned, any interior with Hotspur in its name will be a target for its players although it would be better white rather than red.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
