The Crimean Route

With the towering Crimean Mountains on one side and the Black Sea on the other, driving the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe through Crimea brings a modern touch to the ancient route between Sevastopol and Yalta, thanks to restyled front bumpers and rectangular LED headlights. At night, the headlights move in the direction that the car is traveling for better illumination when cornering. The light pattern also changes according to the car’s speed, widening as the car slows (in order to see pedestrians and cyclists better) and narrowing to a long-range cone at highway speeds.
