A Bentley or a Maybach are similarly powerful and plush…what folks consider the world’s nicest luxury car, from rappers to royalty, will likely say Rolls-Royce, and that’s exactly why the Ooni of Ife rolls in style.
Unarguably a man of class, influential Osun monarch, the Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the foremost traditional ruler in Africa’s most populous nation, exudes opulence and royalty.
The businessman-turned-monarch recently acquired one of the world’s best luxury cars, a Rolls-Royce Phantom. It is a vehicle designed for the rich, lovers of luxury and people of class.
Notably, the Phantom – a supremely luxurious transportation, is a thorough blend of meticulous German engineering and iconic British panache, thanks to parent company BMW’s prudent stewardship.
The Phantom is exactly what you would expect of a Rolls-Royce. It is decadently opulent, wickedly powerful, meticulously engineered and unapologetically grandiose.
Naturally all the pampering and state-of-the-art high-tech features one would expect in a prestigious automobile are found in the Phantom. But it’s the countless special touches that set the Rolls apart.
Within the cabin, the surfaces are covered in the finest leather, highly finished wood or lustrous metal. The sheepskin carpets will tempt passengers to take off their shoes just to dig their toes in it, while the reverse-opening rear doors contain Teflon-coated umbrellas to protect occupants in times of sunshine or rainfall.
The 2011 Rolls-Royce Phantom is an ultra-luxury sedan available in regular or extended-wheelbase models and it seats five in one of the largest backseats on four wheels. For those who want more, the Extended Wheelbase model offers an additional 10 inches of rear-seat legroom.
Sure, you could buy a Porsche Boxster S and an 82-inch TV for what those 10 extra inches will cost you, but you’ll certainly be happy you took the advantage.
