Hello Darshann,

Could you please provide a bit more context for this statement? That's really important when considering whether a phrase is correct. Please note that what you wrote is not a sentence because it has no main verb. This is not necessarily a problem, e.g. people answer questions with phrases, but if it needs to be a sentence, then please consider that.

All the best,

I am afraid to say that I can't appreciate motor sport. I don't understand what fun about it. To my opinion the velocity is far too fast, it dazzles me.

Rolls-Royce is definitely my choice, because it is a car more suitable for just driving around and doing a little bit of sight-seeing scenic tour and stuff. So if anybody is considering giving me a car, a Rolls-Royce please. Thank you and bow.

.Personally, I do not like things like that. And I am not a passionate of cars or bikes.


Me neither. But the video is entertaining and glamourous , specially the last scene into the car with music. Maybe I am wrong , but I think it is a fragment of a Michael Nyman's work called "Drowning by numbers" which was also the score of a Peter Greenaway film.

After watching the video, I became interested of car racing and I prefer Rolls-Royce because they are unique in making luxury cars and traditional craftsmanship; also, Rolls-Royce has been in the industry for over 100 years.

I want a rolls Royce!!

thank for your video! truth be told, i really love the part about RR, because its my favorite car! to be honest, RR phantom is my blue dream. in addition, it was simple to understand, because i know this voc. so, thank you again, that you showed us GB from other side, before when i heard GB, i thought, yeees, there are good tea and RR. Yet, now I discovered many good facts:)

I'd like to know what does it song in Rolls-Royce's scenes?
Sry for my English.

Hi dom12345,

It's quite possible that the music was composed specially for the video. I'm afraid we don't have any more specific information than that. Sorry!

Best wishes,
