With the new feature, the ornament will hide itself from any small contact from outside, which helps avert theft which would result in at least $10-50k (~N3.89m- 19m) to replace.

How does that happen? That’s thanks to its sensors and a 7.3-pound tangle of motors embedded inside.

The anti-theft is just an excuse for the birth of this wonderful feature. It was, in fact, built to evade harms to pedestrian’s injuries during accidents and collisions as well.

Aside from Rolls-Royce, Bentley also developed the same feature for its flying B ornaments which was first released in 2008 priced at $200k (~N77m), half the price of a brand-new Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
