Transcending time and the indisputable god of luxury cars, Rolls-Royce set the bar with the iconic Silver Ghost in 1904. Brought to life by English engineer and car designer Sir Frederick Henry Royce and English motoring and aviation pioneer Charles Rolls, together they built English history that even withstood Stock Market Crash of 1929! It’s only fair we assign a piece of English heritage to London, where open roads and parking spaces are equivalent to catching a train to Narnia. It’s best to just sit back and cruise in style through Westminster, Mayfair or Noting Hill like a king, while people crane their necks to get a glimpse of your Phantom.

Take this baby for a ride through the Stelvio Pass in northern Italy, where you can drift through this zigzag road tucked away in the Alps.

It would be the perfect mode of transport across the white sand beaches or even the Wahiba sand dunes of Oman. Fancy a lift to Muscat?
