A little bit of Dom Perignon to start the evening off at Hotel Le Germain in Calgary to mark the 100th anniversary of Rolls Royce "spirit of ecstasy"

Phantom Drophead Coupe (it comes with an opulent picnic set that hides away neatly in the trunk). The Phantom Drophead Coupe also has a striking teak deck reminiscent of a classic boat deck. Another unique option is the brushed steel bonnet, and who could resist the temptation to tailor the headrests to one's individual taste. Chooses include having the interlinked Rolls-Royce monogram or Spirit of Ecstasy stitched into the headrests in any standard or contrast trim colour.

The Spirit of Ecstasy is one of the most well known motor car mascots in the world. Designed by Charles Robinson Sykes, The Spirit of Ecstasy has adorned the radiators of Rolls-Royce motor cars since 1911. This wonderful mascot was modeled after a young woman Eleanor Velasco Thornton. The Spirit of Ecstasy also retracts into the hood for several reasons (very Batman).

The Rolls Royce Ghost. "The V12 engine allows for a magic carpet ride for passengers and drivers". Coach doors offer a sophisticated touch- with the touch of a button inside the car, back doors close gently. CSL's team drove The Ghost, it drives like butter, the Ghost is still quick enough to accelerate from zero-60 mph (zero-160 kph) in just over 4.5 seconds. Rack and pinion steering allows for spirited and smooth driving even on undulating roads.

The 'bells and whistles' are exhaustive, from xM satellite radio, night vision, head up display and much more. The gorgeous Malabar wood is a nice finishing touch to the interior

The Rolls-Royce Centenary Phantom. The phantom features an injection V12 engine. At 70mph over 90% of the power is in reserve, making for effortless acceleration.

The beautiful rims with the classic 2:1 - the wheel to body proportions.

The passionate Brian Clark, product specialist at Rolls Royce accompanied CSL's team for a Spring drive around the city. We were blown away by the insight and tidbits that Clark informed us a bout each car in the family of Rolls Royce.

Andrew Mortimer-Lamb, general sales manager at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Vancouver was on site at Hotel Le Germain to show off beautiful Rolls-Royce cars and to promote the brand to potential customers in the city.

So the question is,which one should CSL get?
