Specifically, the vehicle was inspired by the film And the World Stood Still, a dramatic short film created to coincide with the launch of the original model. The film was recently accepted into the British Film Institute National Archives and to celebrate, the English car manufacturer created a slightly film noir version of their most powerful vehicle to date. References to the genre are seen through a unique two-tone Silver and Jubilee Silver paint scheme, while a solid-silver hand-cast Spirit of Ecstasy acts as the femme fatale to the leading man. Opening the doors, the interior is more colorful than the exterior suggests.
Performance aspects include a shorter wheelbase, wider rear track and 624 bhp/465 kW derived from the twin turbo V12. Drivers will be going from 0 to 60 in 4.4 seconds.
West has moved on to another venture that, while less fashion orientated, is still every bit influenced by his creative spirit and desire to be a high flying business exec. European airline easyJet has announced Kanye West will come on board in a yet-to-be-determined position. While easyJet has operated solely on European soil (or air!) to this point, the newly-named “yeezyJet” partnership will see the airline enter the United States marketplace for the first time.
“The notion of ‘getting fly’ is something I stayed awake at night thinking about,” West said in the official press release. “With DONDA, it happened on a more metaphysical, psychological level. With yeezyJet, I’ve manifested myself. I’m taking people places they’ve never been before. There are 300 million people within a one-hour drive of an yeezyJet airport. I sell out one concert, that’s only 100,000 people. I want to reach the most people possible. I want to literally show them the way.”
As to what to expect from the maiden voyage, which will depart from a yet-to-be-determined American hub on April 22, details include premium, hand-woven Italian textile-clad seats, Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1998 artisanal beverage service, and an exclusive viewing of in- flight media experience ‘Getting Out Our Dreams’ – a never-before-seen chronicle of West’s favorite songs, movies, artists and TV shows.
Additionally, those lucky enough to book a reservation on the inaugural flight will be treated to a concert on the tarmac by the likes of Pusha T, Common, John Legend, and newly-signed G.O.O.D. music artist, Holt. Kanye West said, “This is Willy Wonka, except I’m giving out gold chains instead of golden tickets.”
