1. Notice the slight indentation of the entire roof section.
2. The indentation theme is picked up in the center of the hood, leading the eye to the Flying Lady as observed by the driver and any frontseat passenger.
3. The one wonderfully distinct part of R-R visuals was the strict three-element straight lines of the radiator shell cap.
That’s gone now, and this soft curve is dismally generic and undistinguished. Only the strict vertical sides and grille bars save
the presentation. But it’s definitely not good in my opinion. I think it’s possible to work with the original, even on a modern shape.
4. These slots are very nice, although we don’t yet know if they have a specific function.
5. This diagonal line at the bottom of the front end provides a sense of stability, a base for the entire structure above.
6. One has the feeling that many sizes and shapes were tried for the Cullinan’s headlamps until the absolutely correct dimensions were established.
7. In none of the photos does one get a clear perception of how severely the front fenders are cut back in plan view. That’s too bad, because it was artfully and skillfully done with an exactitude that suggests that many angles were tried here as well until the perfect one was found.
