You’ve probably heard rumors of cars having their hood ornaments ripped off and sold for dolla.
But you’ve never heard of a Rolls Royce having its hood ornament, obnoxiously named the ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’, being torn off, and there’s a reason why.
After noticing a spike in emblem theft, the motoring giants manufactured a way in which to reduce the number of Rolls Royce emblem thefts, and yes – it’s cool as fuck.
In this video, car salesman, shows exactly what happens when you try to tear one off.
As you can see, whenever you try to tug at the ornament or apply any pressure whatsoever the car recognizes what is happening and immediately retracts the object into the hood.
