The Italian yacht-builder CRN (which stands for “Costruzioni e Riparazioni Navali”) has launched another piece into their collection of luxury super-yachts – the Darlings Danama. Enjoying a private presentation held in Ancona during May 2011, the vessel is the 6th 60-meter lounge-cruiser since 2005.

This time, we’re talking about the same tuning brand, but about a way less common car – the Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. Considering the fact that the number of Rolls Royce owners out there is very limited and that just a small number of them would want their beloved car modified, we would easily think this kind of car-tuning is extremely exclusive and exquisite. Named as the one on the Panamera, “The Black Bison Edition”, this body-kit features good-looking aero-dynamic parts crafted from carbon

Having its premiere programmed for the 20th of July, during the current year, The Dark Knight Rises is the last movie in the Batman trilogy.

The resort itself features 27 extravagant bungalows, suits and villas, all of them constructed on the triangular
