  • As a Brit, I’m highly disappointed the the infamous Rolls Royce Merlin Engine wasn’t spoken about

  • 0:00 That would be me if I bought a Rolls Royce. If I’m gonna pay for a Rolls, I’M GONNA DRIVE IT.

  • 3:15 a little Donald Trump talk moment😂

  • Make an up to speed of Bentley

  • Shame that you didn’t go into greater detail into Rolls-Royce’s aircraft engines. The Merlin was the engine that won the Air War during World War 2. It powered the Spitfire until the MkXIV (at which point they dropped the Griffon, a Merlin on crack), and a licensed version made by Packard went into the P-51 Mustang, a platform that is still winning air races. Amazing video otherwise!

  • 1920s, not 1920's; it's plural not possessive.

  • Kenny G smooof⚡️

  • How to turn of the TRC on the Ghost?

  • I don't mean to sound like a smartass but the plane was called the supermarine. Submarine is wat happens when it crashed

  • Is it just me or does Claude Johnson look like Jeremy Clarkson from top gear?

  • 4:08 *supermarine

  • Saw the Rolls Royce Cullinan being tested in my Province of Northern Cape in South Africa before it was released.

  • "What have we been doing for the past 80 years." Bro I wish I could share with you the story. But it is such a ridiculous story that you would never believe me. TLDR: the elites really screwed over human progress.

  • LMFAO.

  • Jaguar plssss

  • Worst German accent ever

  • All I need for happiness on a friday night, is a corndog and some Donut Media.

  • Hop outside a ghost and hop up in a phantom....

  • It’s a Rolls Kanardly. Rolls down one hill, can hardly get up the next!😜

  • We need a Bentley video!

  • You've encouraged me to strive to executive level. I'm totally buying a Rolls. Thanks James!

    • I could only buy a Rolls cup holder if i save for a year

  • I can’t believe you didn’t mention their biggest rival, Bentley. Also, fun fact, in the 30s, Rolls changed their badge from red to white, to stop it clashing with the cars

  • You make history fun as shit, keep it up 👈😎👈

  • It's a nice deluxe German car, owned by the Master Race (irony).

  • The Rolls-Royce Silver ghost was reliable? A RELIABLE BRITTISH CAR? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

  • The world’s quietest V12 ever made.

  • Geez dude...SUPERmarine! Supermarine was the British aircraft company that made the freakin WWII fighter plane the Spitfire, one of the most famous planes in history.

  • They still keep there British heritage ROLLS ROYCE DOO

  • I like how you talked about rolls-royce in front of a volkswagen

  • You know you might et stabbed for saying Phantom Menace is the best Star Wars movie, right?

  • Neither Griffin or Merlin was mentioned... Or any of the army multi fuel engines...

  • More correct, BMW only able to bought the brand name and logo. The rest of Rolls Royce include blueprints, licenses, staffs, factories belong to Volkswagen and the Volkswagen's Bentley is more successor of Rolls Royce. So current Rolls Royce is complete new and not the same old Rolls Royce.

  • If you're doing these luxury brands, can you do one on Infiniti? I just got a G37 and would love to see you talk about the brand!

    • Civil , sooooo you want him to do a video on Nissan??

  • “Sacre Bleu!”?! **Germans have left the chat**
