America is trying to muscle in on the British ultra-luxury car industry with a Rolls Royce rival of its own: the Godsil Manhattan V16.
The USA has a formidable car industry, known for turning out powerful gas-guzzling motors with serious road presence. But when it comes to ultra-luxury vehicles, the ludicrously wealthy typically turn to British classics like Rolls Royce, Bentley, and Aston Martin.
In a bid to scupper the status quo, a largely unknown auto firm called Godsil Motorcars has revealed a new concept car called the Godsil Manhattan V16, a slick and retro-inspired luxury motor with heaps of street appeal.

Here’s how Godsil’s press release for the Manhattan describes the car: “The design is a continuation of the Art Deco period of the early 20th century utilised by companies like Rolls Royce, Delahaye and Duesenberg. The idea behind the design is the question Godsil Motorcars asked themselves: ‘What would a Duesenberg look like today if they were still in business?’ They wanted an Art Deco design without the ‘retro’ look.”
