The Rolls-Royce Phantom Zenith comes with a champagne bar

Sort of. Uber luxurious extras mark out last of the line Phantom Coupes and Dropheads

Published: 17 May 2016

Internet, meet the Rolls-Royce Phantom Zenith Collection. It comprises limited editions that mark the end of Phantom Coupe and Drophead production, and they do not want for luxury.

Now, the end-of-the-line special is commonplace in the car world. But Rolls-Royce likes to think it’s different. “Now the time has come for Phantom Drophead Coupe and Phantom Coupe to leave the stage,” it tells us, “a moment that will be marked with a remarkable Bespoke Collection, conceived with one purpose; to once again set the highest standard by which everything is judged.”

That ‘Bespoke Collection’ is dubbed Zenith, and the extras it brings are suitably opulent. So the fold-down tailgate comes with a champagne fridge, glasses and a nice leather mat to perch upon while you consume. Let’s hope you’ve got someone to drive you home, too.

There are laser-etched badges when you open the doors, which pinpoint locations key to the Phantom and the unveiling of its Coupe and Drophead versions. The car’s ID number is etched into the central storage compartment. The starlight headlining, meanwhile, has a different pattern to other Phantoms.

Rolls-Royce is offering some classic colour schemes, too, inspired by the cars’ 1930s ancestors. Though the bespoke nature of its service ensures the hue of your car remains at your own whim.

As, in turn, does the price. But if you don’t have to ask (meaning you can afford it), then you’re already too late: all 50 have already been specced up by ‘connoisseur customers’. Sorry.
