Rolls-Royce will unveil three unique Phantoms – Rolls-Royce Phantom The Gentleman’s Tourer, Phantom Extended Wheelbase Whispered Muse and Phantom Extended Wheelbase A Moment in Time – and the Dawn Aero Cowling at 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
The design of Rolls-Royce Phantom The Gentleman’s Tourer draws inspiration from the four-door standard wheelbase cars Phantom II Continental Saloons of the Thirties. The luxury vehicle sports a unique Iced Gunmetal exterior paint, complemented by a satin silver bonnet. The 22 inch alloy wheel centres are also accented in Iced Gunmetal, another first use of this process on a wheel. The interior features Black, Selby Grey and Anthracite leathers, the embossed Spirit of Ecstasy in each door panel, the silver pinstripe across the Piano Black veneer and the Cascade Steel Gallery finished in Ruthenium, a rare and precious metal from the Platinum group.
The exterior of Rolls-Royce Phantom Extended Wheelbase Whispered Muse features a newly-developed Crystal effect over the two-tone Selby Grey and Palais Nemaskar Dawn bespoke paint. The Rose Gold pain motif is coordinated with the first ever Rose Gold Spirit of Ecstasy. The interior features a unique Gallery created by London-based designer Helen Amy Murray. This Gallery reinterprets Charles Sykes’ original drawings for the much revered Spirit of Ecstasy. Piano Seashell veneer on the interior surfaces, created by hand polishing for 12 hours, beautiful handstitched Charles Sykes Spirit of Ecstasy embroidery and Rose Gold Bespoke Audio speakers on the interiors of the rear doors, contribute to the beauty of the car. The front seats are wrapped in the Dark Spice, whilst the owner relaxes in the comfort of the Seashell leather-clad Serenity seats.
A Moment in Time is a second customer-commissioned Phantom Extended Wheelbase present at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The exterior features a newly created Blue Crystal over Milori Sapphire Bespoke paint and is finished with a Selby Grey coachline and pinstripes to the wheel centers. Its Gallery captures A Moment in Time as though the Spirit of Ecstasy’s shawl was allowed to drape over the car at high speed. Achieved through the artistic process of photography, fluid dynamics and sculpture by the Based Upon Collective in London. The final interpretation was machined from a solid billet of aluminium and hand polished before being mounted into The Gallery space as a beautiful, valuable artwork. A unique Piano Milori Sapphire veneer, hand-polished for 12 hours, complements the Navy and Selby Grey interior, this time with the beautiful hand-stitched Charles Sykes Spirit of Ecstasy embroidery, also in Navy.
The visitors of 2018 Geneva Motor Show will behold the Dawn Aero Cowling. A two-seater roadster-style motor-car is clad in a silver and tan color scheme. The exterior is painted in Cassiopeia Silver and features beautiful 21 inch part-polished alloy wheels, whilst the interior is dressed in Casden Tan leather, highlighted by Selby Grey piping and stitching and Black contrast elements.
The Aero Cowling encloses the rear seat area of Dawn in a beautifully hand-made unit that features two cowls that rise from the leading edge of the tonneau area, which conceals the Dawn hood, to behind each front seat. The form of the cowls was precisely sculpted to funnel the air gracefully, so to enhance driver comfort. Each cowl offers enhanced lockable leather-lined storage compartments for personal effects. The cover itself is made of carbon-fibre and aluminium and so is incredibly light and strong. The lids of the cowls are swathed in Rolls-Royce leather which matches the interior of the car.
