Rolls Royce Wraith. Seen one before in a showroom, but this is the first I‘ve seen in the wild. Much classier surrounded by traffic than on its own; other cars give its proportions some scale. Does a great job of combining “Get out of my way, peasant” with “Envy me, for I have obscene levels of both money and taste*”. 

That heavy stainless trim round the side windows really makes the whole design, I think. It breaks up the giant mass of the thing vertically and accentuates it horizontally, and its thickness makes the whole glasshouse seem delicate in proportion.

*In black, at least. In the footballers-wife leopardskin wrap I suspect they’re more often seen in, probably not so much.
