As we announced yesterday, the famous British actor and a huge car aficionado, Rowan Atkinson, made a public appearance at the Rolls Royce display in Frankfurt.

His appearance is related to the special Rolls Royce Phantom with a 9.0 liter V16 engine which is featured in his upcoming flick, Johnny English.

The “monster Rolls” was meant to turn the rolls into the “Ultimate Luxury Car for the 21st Century” with the ultimate engine. The company apparently made three or four of these engines that produced “unbelievable power and torque.”

Unfortunately Rolls Royce has not revealed more technical specs of the experimental engine and we’re hoping to hear the engine in action when the movie hits the theaters.
