Rolls-Royce unveiled three customized cars at the Paris Motor Show to pay homage to the 1925 Paris Exhibition, which lent the art deco movement its name. The Phantom and Ghost saloons, along with a Phantom Drophead Coupé, have bespoke exterior and interior highlights. The Phantom’s cabin features a trim in contrasting black and Arctic White leather. It also features hand-finished stainless steel inlays in the drawers, door cappings and rear picnic tables. The Ghost has a two-tone Jubilee Silver and Cobalto Blue finish. It is equipped with one-of-a-kind marquetry that adorns trim pieces in both the front and rear cabin. It gets an arty makeover, which includes Mother of Pearl trim detailing in the Phantom Drophead Coupé. Rolls-Royce customers can specify their own art deco cars and can select from styling features like art deco headrest embroidery and an illuminated Spirit of Ecstasy emblem. So far, no pricing has been released for the Phantom or the Ghost. However, a major increase is expected over the standard cars, which have starting prices of £276,275 and £170,250, respectively. "For over a century a Rolls-Royce motor car has taken inspiration from the prevailing style of its time whilst retaining the marque's unique design aesthetic," added Giles Taylor, Design Director Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. "Art Deco was defined by theatre, glamour and a sense of excitement. Working to create contemporary interpretations of these classic themes has been enormously rewarding for everyone in my bespoke design team."
