The Middle East is an important market for Rolls-Royce so at this years Dubai Motor Show, Rolls-Royce is seeking to grab a lot of headlines by decorating the Phantom’s interior with diamonds to create the Bespoke Celestial Phantom.
The 466 diamonds in the Bespoke Celestial Phantom were inserted by hand (obviously) into the door-caps, centre console lid and the rear-privacy divider.
The two-tone exterior is painted in a shade of dark blue which Rolls-Royce claims “evokes the night sky “ due to its integration of glass particle effects into the paint to achieve an “alluring sense of depth and light”. The exterior also has engraving.
The Rolls-Royce Bespoke Celestial Phantom celebrates the handover of the first Phantom to a customer in 1st of January 2003 by taking the Starlight Headliner, and reproducing the constellations exactly as they were at midnight on that day. The Starlight Headliners accuracy was verified by authenticated by the South Downs Planetarium. The Bespoke division also fitted the interior with leather in a Dusk hue, bespoke glassware and custom picnic set.
The Phantom Coupe Chicane, Alpine Trial Centenary Collection and Rolls-Royce Wraith, all joined the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Celestial Phantom at the Dubai Motor Show. No word on price but if you wanted one, expect to pay much, much more than the £285,000 asking price for the base model Phantom.
