If you are an automotive journalist fawning over the very British Rolls Royce Sweptail then shame on you. The reality is very British Rolls Royce likes to court influencers and load them up with events and tank them full… with champagne. Its true of every motoring manufacture and there is nothing wrong with buying out the media because money, events and free alcohol creates a dependency and motoring journalists like nothing more then free rounds of alcohol. The media have always been easy to buy-out.
This dependency creates loyalty and any disloyalty means that access to exclusive events and free alcohol will be lost if said motoring journalist says something disagreeable. So in the end you have fake relationships built on the primordial need to “drink yourself senseless”.
We here at DCB Towers actually like the Sweptail its the skill of the coachbuilding and finishing that makes this not just another car but quite possibly art.
