Rolls-Royce revealed new bespoke designs for its iconic limo and convertible — and they look incredible
- Rolls Royce is showing four cars at the Geneva Motor Show, including three custom Phantoms from the Bespoke division and the Dawn Aero Cowling.
- The bespoke cars have features like one-of-a-kind art pieces and custom paint colors to complement the exteriors.
- Each Rolls Royce was tailored to the requests of the patrons and reflect the history of the company.
Rolls Royce revealed three distinct Bespoke Phantoms and a Dawn Aero Cowling at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland earlier this week.
Each custom car was commissioned by Rolls Royce patrons and have unique features like custom paint covers, hand-polished veneers, and one-of-a-kind art displays in the Gallery on the dashboard. They were inspired by the history of Rolls Royce, like the 1930s Phantom II Continental Saloons and Charles Sykes’ original drawings for the Spirit of Ecstasy, the iconic ornament on Rolls Royce cars.
Take a look at the incredible Rolls Royce Bespoke designs:
The first of the three phantoms, The Gentleman's Tourer, is inspired by the Phantom II Continental Saloons of the 1930s.
The gunmetal gray paint color is inspired by high performance aircrafts and was designed specifically for this car.
The interior was designed for long, luxurious drives. The Spirit of Ecstasy is embossed in each door panel, and showcases a modern, minimalist design.
The Cascade Steel Gallery is finished in Ruthenium, a rare type of platinum.
"Whispered Muse" is another Bespoke Phantom. Ten layers of paint are built up, including a glass-infused clear-coat to create a crystal effect.
The custom Rolls Royce features the first ever rose gold Spirit of Ecstasy.
It also features a one-off Gallery created by London-based designer Helen Amy Murray. The design reinterprets Charles Sykes’ original drawings for the Spirit of Ecstasy, creating a partial image of the Spirit of Ecstasy’s dress flowing backwards from her neck.
The veneer on the interior was hand polished for 12 hours...
...and there is a hand stitched Spirit of Ecstasy embroidery on the interior of the rear doors in addition to rose gold Bespoke Audio speakers.
The custom Rolls Royce Phantom "A Moment in Time" features a custom paint color and a clear-coat infused with blue glass was used to create the blue crystal effect.
It has a gallery created by the Based Upon Collective in London. Photography, fluid dynamics, and sculpture were all used in the process, and the final piece is made from aluminum.
The interior has a custom veneer that was hand polished for 12 hours and a navy, hand stitched embroidery.
The Rolls Royce Dawn Aero Cowling is a two-seater convertible with a silver and tan color scheme. A carbon fiber "spine" is exposed to showcase the lightweight design. The interior features a contemporary chevron graphic.
The car has an extended tonneau area which conceals the hood of the car and is intended to be more graceful and aerodynamic. There are lockable leather-lined storage units as well.
