It's not something I would have thought to say, but I would assume it means that the woman is especially attractive. A Rolls-Royce is among the most luxurious, expensive and exclusive automobiles in the world, so one can infer from the reference that the woman in question is quite spectacular. (Please, no comments on how expensive the woman might be, and for what reason .)
Te gato--absolutely right. That the woman might be high-class could also have been implied. Didn't see your post before I blundered in with mine .
Since this is a slang usage, anything you have to say about what it might mean to you would be on topic, I think.VenusEnvy said:Because this thread asks about the linguistic meaning of the words, and NOT the way they are perceived by some of its native-speakers,I will leave my comments on issues such as these to the Culture Forum.
Lande also says that Wobbe will remind Ute fans a lot of Alli Bills, who graduated last year as the all-time assists leader in school and Western Athletic Conference history. "She's a Rolls Royce kind of a point guard," says Lande. "She not the Porsche type point guard that's low to the ground and lightning quick, but she's very impressive. She can shoot the three and drive to the basket and finish if she needs to. But most importantly, she can get the ball in the hands of the right person. She's also a great leader."
Ah, interesting. As always, we can never know what something means without context!Edwin said:Here's an example from the web. Lande is a baskeball coach talking about one of his players named Wobbe.
In this case it just means as the coach says very impressive. And since Porsches are also impressive, he means very impressive.
