Rolls-Royce showcases three unique PhantomOctober 22, 2019
Rolls-Royce Corporation showcased 3 special variations of the Phantom sedan, which were dedicated to watchmaking, contemporary craftsmanship combining delicate handwork and computer design, and the Middle Eastern atmosphere.
In search of inspiration for the updated modifications of the Phantom model, the designers of the British brand went to the Swiss watchmakers to familiarize themselves with their work. Difficult and original mechanisms became the basis of the Horology Phantom style: 2-color body colors (black top, gray bottom) are combined with silver and gold contour lines, as well as a 24-carat gold statue of Ecstasy.
The second novelty is Digital Soul Phantom, which is dedicated to combining traditional craft and computer technology. The similar Phantom also has a two-tone body color – Carrara White and Smokey Quartz – and a 2-color interior. It is distinguished by the fact that she was equipped with a gilded figurine on the hood, a RR monogram and a gold stitching in the cabin.
The Arabian Gulf Phantom is inspired by the atmosphere of the Middle East – a regional wealth of traditional crafts and bold modern architecture. The hue of the bodywork is inspired by the history of pearl mining in the Persian Gulf: the bottom is painted in Turchese color, reflecting bright shades of sea water, and the top is Andalusian White, which demonstrates the natural beauty of pearls.
Inside, there are nautilus shells hand-embroidered or made in the style of marquetry, inlaid with mother-of-pearl watches and a luminous ceiling.
On the technical side, no changes have occurred. The Rolls-Royce Phantom still has a 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 engine with 571 horsepower, an 8-speed automatic transmission, adaptive air suspension and a fully-controlled chassis.
