The Phantom Sacred Fire Is Rolls-Royce’s Latest Bespoke Vehicle

Rolls–Royce is known for its exclusive appeal, with the British car maker offering each model as a one-of-a-kind, bespoke-commissioned product.

In fact, the Goodwood based company says its countless paint-schemes can account for millions of combinations, providing individualization for any type of customer. This particular example, for instance, is inspired by ancient Vietnamese culture, and is the first Rolls-Royce to be delivered in South East Asia to celebrate a nation’s cultural heritage – as Rolls Royce says.

Called the Phantom Sacred Fire, it features a unique Madeira Red Sunrise two-tone color paint scheme, representing the national symbol of fire in Vietnam.

Being an extended-wheelbase variant, rear passengers are spoiled in a private partition configuration – featuring in-built drinks cabinet – with a wide array of customized details. In fact, all the motifs seen on this automobile are gold colored in order to complement the rich (but heavy) Tan and Cacao color combination of the interior.

As always, every one-of-a-kind Roller is governed by a unique coachline, and this one does not disappoint. The Dong Son Bronze Drum – the icon of Vietnamese culture and history – is beautifully reproduced by hand on the vehicle’s body.

So, there’s no denying that Rolls-Royce’s hand-built craftsmanship is one of the the world’s finest when it comes to one of one, tribute-paying automobiles, creating a work of art in the process.
