Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has been giving the world one masterpiece after another, creating a rich legacy of 112 years. Moving into the next phase of car evolution, the brand retires its magnum opus cars – the Phantom Drophead Coupe and Phantom Coupe, replacing it with the Zenith collection. Discover all about the ultimate bespoke Rolls-Royce with Design Limited Edition!
Circa 2003 saw the first Phantom Coupe in motion, followed by a host of bespoke additions to the car along with a series of upgrades. Today, in 2016, the car and its counterpart, the Drophead Coupe, take their last trip with the new Phantom Zenith Collection. They will make way for the eighth generation Phantom limousine with its all-new aluminium architecture.
The Phantom Zenith Collection comprises some of the very last Phantom Drophead Coupe and Phantom Coupe cars ever built. A perfect collector’s item, the limited edition cars will have only 50 models each.
The bespoke design team at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars studied the lifestyle and automobile usage of its discerning customers and introduced the minutest detail for ultimate comfort. For instance, the split-tailgate, for both cars, is enhanced with a champagne fridge to fit two bottles and eight glasses, without altering the shape, space or look of the car.

Inside the cars, guests are greeted with beautiful laser etchings on the armrest capping. These capping depict the location of the global debut of the bespoke versions of each car. To create a perfect experience, the cars come with special cup holders crafted from aluminium.
The detailing doesn’t end here. Owners will find the central fascia drawer with a beautiful gift signifying each car’s identity. The drawer has a removable polished aluminium case, laser engraved with their motor car’s unique identification number. In addition, it will also have details on the co-ordinates of the exact part of the assembly line from where the metal was extracted, to the finishing of the cars.
Both cars have a speedometer in brushed steel, with a unique interior design colour scheme, where the leather colour of the front seats complements the dark rear compartment. The seats also have the Starlight Headliner with individually hand-woven stars clustered to showcase the bespoke look.

The exteriors give tough competition to the interiors with a similar colour scheme of Madeira Red and Jubilee Silver. These shades are inspired by the 1930s Phantom II. The cars come in shades like Midnight Blue and Artic White, taken from the special 1930s Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental. These paints come with a new glass clear coat to enhance the cars’ mirror-like shine.
A few of the last ever Phantom Drophead Coupe and Phantom Coupe are in production currently, a delight for connoisseurs, world-wide. In addition, this is also the last opportunity to commission the bespoke seventh generation Phantom limousine.
