To be fair, most of the cars featured on MTV's, Pimp My Ride, were janky AF and nowhere near the caliber or luxury of a Rolls-Royce. Then again, few cars on this planet are near the caliber or luxury of a Rolls-Royce, so really, it's all relative. My reason for this odd, albeit accurate, early-2000's connection is centered around both the look and customization of the new Phantom. As per Forbes—
"As with all Rolls-Royces, you can customize the limousine to suit your tastes and desires, potentially driving the price from $450,000 or so to as much as $1 million. 'Your imagination is basically our limit. You tell us what you want, and we are going to build it,' said Torsten Muller-Otvos, chief executive officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, in an interview with Forbes. 'Nobody else on earth, I must say, is able to deliver such kind of customization."
Yeah well, clearly Torsten never saw an episode of Pimp My Ride because Xzibit, despite being terribly annoying, could throw a fish tank in a hoopdie like it was nobody's business. That being said, the most impressive aspect of the Phantom's interior is by far the dashboard, specifically the space Rolls-Royce has dubbed, "The Gallery"—a feature that I myself would DIE to have in my Volkswagen Beetle. I'd 100% commission someone to come in and try to recreate an original Pollack or Warhol, but that's just me pretending to know about art. Forbes continues—
Customers will be able to choose a favorite artist or designer to work with Rolls-Royce to create a truly individual work of art for display behind a single piece of glass that stretches across the width of the dashboard. Rolls-Royce has already worked with a collection of artists to show what is possible, such as:
An oil painting inspired by the South Downs of England in Autumn by renowned Chinese fine artist Lian Yangwei;
A gold-plated 3D-printed map of an owner's DNA created by Germany's Thorsten Franck;
A hand-made porcelain rose made by renowned porcelain manufacturer Nymphenberg;
An abstract design in silk by a young British artist, Helen Amy Murray.
