Rolls-Royce Motor Cars revealed that it has created a bespoke Phantom Drophead Coupé. This was manufactured at its Goodwood facility in the UK. It was made to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance held in Carmel, California.
The Phantom Drophead Coupé was unveiled at the same event by company CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös and its Chief Designer Ian Cameron. After the unveiling, it was sold in mere minutes. The has a one-off bespoke Stillwater Blue color for the exterior which serves as a homage to the Stillwater Cove located on the Monterey Peninsula.
Its soft top is navy blue and has been lined with cashmere while the upholstery is in a Crème Light leather interior. The interior has wood fittings that are made up of a striking Santos Pallisander cross-banded veneer which is then contrasted with a silver pinstripe inlay.
The roof tonneau has an oiled teak decking that has been hand-crafted similar to the flooring of the luggage compartment. Complementing this teak covered picnic deck is the champagne service set that has crystal flutes. Furthermore the luggage compartment floor hides the refrigerated cabinet.
This bespoke model has embroidery on all its seats, has the Concours logos on its tread plates, and even the dashboard has an enamelled plaque. The Rolls-Royce Bespoke though is not that simple. When customers order a Phantom, many of them want extra features in addition to the standard ones already offered.
The task of meeting the demands of this personalised service is the responsibility of the Bespoke team. The bespoke involves everything from the most minimal features like the seat piping, contrast stitching, and the personalized tread plates, to the strong expressions like the unique exterior paints and the personalized veneers.
Then there’s the glassware, the luggage, and even the lavish picnic set. All of these are designed in-house in Goodwood. Torsten Müller-Ötvös shares that the release of the 60th Anniversary Special Edition is the epitome of Goodwood’s Bespoke capabilities.
The special edition shows the ability of its designers and even the artisans to make a vehicle that is fitting for the special occasion and is something that can be treasured forever, he adds.
