Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show its new Pinnacle Travel Phantom, which has been conceived both to celebrate the Chinese love for travel and the success of the carmaker’s Bespoke program in the country. China was regarded as the largest outbound travel market in 2013, spending an estimated $125 billion on travel, according to the World Tourism Barometer published by the United Nations World Tourism Organisation.
To cater to this growing interest in luxury travel, the Rolls-Royce Pinnacle Travel Phantom offers opulent color scheme, lavish materials and superb hand-crafted inlays. The Pinnacle Travel Phantom features a two-tone exterior color scheme of Madeira Red-Silver Sand, hinting what a traveller can expect inside the luxurious cabin.
The Rolls-Royce Pinnacle Travel Phantom is also available in Infinity Black-Silver Haze or Melanite- Palladium color schemes. color scheme is continued through the cabin, which features Morello Red and Seashell leather combinations for seats, roofliner, pillars and door cards. The interior of the Rolls-Royce Pinnacle Travel Phantomalso features specifically developed Morello Red lambs wool floor mats.
A further motif in Smoke Grey thread is stitched into the seat flutes and into individual fabric cushions that provide more comfort for both rear travellers. The main piece of attraction is what could be considered the most complex and most intricate marquetry ever seen inside a Rolls-Royce.
The carmaker employed methods similar to the ones used by fine furniture makers, combining cutting-edge technology with traditional craftsmanship. For instance, Rolls-Royce laser-cuts individual pieces of wood veneer to ensure precision. The sections are thoroughly assembled by a craftsperson to ensure that the resulting work express the vision of the Bespoke design team.
