What it is: The gold standard in luxury motoring
Complex Says: Rolls-Royce has always been responsible for some of the most luxurious and majestic sedans in the world. However, being British, they were also a tad temperamental, especially in the wiring. When BMW bought the storied marque, a new Phantom was designed and was an immediate hit. The combination of British elegance and German engineering made this car a "must-have" for royals, nobles, oligarchs, self-made tech billionaires, and rappers. It's a modern icon to boot.
