Here's Why This Rolls-Royce Phantom Has a Giant Wing

Rolls-Royce is well known for its top-shelf bespoke abilities. The English auto manufacturer gives its customers anything and everything they ask for in their cars. Director of Global Communications Richard Carter once told us that there are no limits to what the company will build for its buyers, simply because it is not up to them to determine taste. And yet, never has the world seen a factory R-R with a wing that looks like it was ripped out of 2 Fast 2 Furious. So why does this shortened Phantom Series II have one? Because it's just an engineering mule that is testing the upcoming 4x4 suspension that will go on Rolls-Royce's SUV. The wing is there to "provide the simulated dynamic experience of the ultimate full vehicle body." The program is known as Project Cullinan, and its tagline/goal is to create a ride that is "effortless ... everywhere."

If you live in this area, you might be able to catch the car riding out on public roads, but it will also be testing on cobblestones, corrugated concrete, Belgian Pavé, resonance road, and acceleration bumps. Sounds like the wing is totally necessary.
