Olympic Phantom Dropheads

As car names go, Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé Series II London 2012 Olympics Special Edition is quite a mouthful. But then, Rollers are pretty pricey - it's good to know you're getting value for money.
You might have spotted a trio of Dropheads in the Olympic closing ceremony, with vacuous pop-tart Jessie J in the back of one singing 'it's not about the money, money, money', seemingly without a hint of irony. Well, those were no ordinary DHCs... Rolls-Royce built those three special editions to commemorate the event; you can see from these close-up shots that they're bristling with London 2012 detailing - bespoke logos on the sills, wheel-centres and on the grille beneath the Spirit of Ecstasy, and even an Olympic torch on the steering wheel. The 2012 emblems bear the motto Citius, Altius, Fortius, meaning 'Faster, Higher, Stronger'.
And no, you can't buy one. Neither can Jessie J.
