Rolls-Royce Phantom news - Shock: tasteless Rolls - 2008

Read more on:

The Rolls Royce Phantom is quickly
becoming the car for people whose bank balance is inversely proportional to
their level of taste.

We’ve already seen the less-than-lovely
gold Drophead, and now this has appeared - the Peony Phantom
saloon. Oh dear…

This azure Phant has been created by the
Rolls Royce Bespoke Program for a customer in the United Arab Emirates. Of
 course.

So that two-tone pearl blue exterior
should remain a thankfully rare sight, and the same goes for the ‘moonstone
pearl blue and seashell interior’.

In case you’re wondering, ‘Peony’ is an
ancient flower design and oriental motif that represents royalty, wealth and
 distinction.

It’s used liberally inside the bespoke
Phantom, categorically proving the royalty, wealth and distinction of the
 owner.

It’s a bit of a bargain too - buy one and Rolls will throw in a
specially developed Emirati perfume. A Perodua with £1,000 cash back looks a
bit less inventive now, doesn’t it?

The Bespoke Program team works in a
closed-off part of the Rolls Goodwood factory and develops new paints,
materials and mechanical changes without letting taste get in the way.

What can we
expect next from the Bespoke boys? We’re not completely sure we want to
 imagine…
