Rolls-Royce Phantoms set to arrive in ME
Dubai, November 20, 2007
Rolls-Royce’s Phantom Tungsten Bespoke Collection cars will arrive in the Middle East in the next two weeks.
Each of the six car features a unique combination of exterior and interior features.
The bonnet has a dramatic brushed aluminium finish, which contrasts elegantly with the bodywork, painted in Darkest Tungsten – a colour never used before on a production Rolls-Royce. New 21 inch forged aluminium wheels and visible exhaust tail pipes lend a particularly purposeful air to these special Phantoms, said a Rolls-Royce official.
On the inside is a unique interior lighting system, featuring a Starlight Headlining, which comprises several hundred fibre-optic lights embedded into perforated black leather, giving the impression of a star-filled night sky.
Smoke Grey leather seats with contrasting Navy Blue piping complements the rich rosewood veneers and tooled metal steering wheel spokes.
“With just six of these exceptional cars available in the whole of the Middle East their arrival is keenly anticipated by our dealers,” said regional sales director for the region Peter Schoppman.
“We have seen demand for the Phantom continuing to grow across the region with customers particularly drawn to the special Bespoke features which our highly-trained team of craftsmen and woman, working at Goodwood, are able to create,” he added.
The Rolls-Royce Bespoke programme allows customers to tailor-make one-off cars which are uniquely personalised. A pallet of 44,000 different colours is available for example and special features ranging from wine cellars to safes, drinks cabinets to humidors have been created in the five years since Rools-Royce production began at Goodwood.
A dedicated team of designers and engineers helps to turn these special requests into reality. Around 80 per cent of all the cars built at Goodwood have some Bespoke elements to their specifications. – TradeArabia News Service
