Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is introducing the Celestial Phantom, which features a starry night theme and is encrusted with 446 diamonds. This stunning motor car actually made its debut at the Frankfurt IAA but to make it even more enticing, the automaker painstakingly set diamonds into the door-cappings, centre console lid and rear-privacy divider by hand.
CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös said that the automaker built “something truly special” for the Dubai International Motor Show to celebrate the fact that the Middle East is the biggest market for Bespoke cars worldwide.
This unique car is built to commemorate the delivery of the first Phantom to its owner January 1, 2003 at midnight, a decisive moment in Rolls-Royce history.
The exterior color scheme evokes the night sky. The paint has fine glass particles in it, achieving a fascinating sense of depth and light. Upon opening the coach doors of this very special Phantom Extended Wheelbase, you’ll see how the theme continues.
There’s a new version of the Starlight Headliner, which is a highly admired Bespoke feature. Representing the constellations are more than a thousand fibre optic lights hand-woven into the Celestial Phantom’s headlining.
It uses the finest leathers in a ‘Dusk’ hue in reference to the inky nature of a cloudless night sky.
It also comes with Bespoke glassware and an elegantly appointed picnic set that expresses a customer’s lifestyle and passions through their very own personal, highly Bespoke Rolls-Royce. The South Downs Planetarium checked the authenticity of the night-sky constellation arrangement.
The hand-stitching to the headliner subtly illustrates the constellations. There’s engraving on the wheel centres while the car’s ethereal theme is enhanced with an uplit Spirit of Ecstasy figurine.
Furthermore, it comes with a themed re-imaging of the famed Rolls-Royce Picnic Set. The glassware uses a hand-engraved Celestial motif. Famous porcelain maker Nymphenburg was commissioned for the set’s plates, offering an excellent presentation of the constellations.
