Bespoke Rolls-Royce Phantom Brings Tranquillity To Bustling Geneva Show (Live Pics)

Rolls-Royce is showcasing a new batch of bespoke models at the Geneva Motor Show and the undisputed star is the Phantom Tranquillity.

Part of a collection of just 25 units available in standard and extended wheelbase configurations, the highly-personalized Phantom is named and crafted “to celebrate the feeling of euphoric tranquillity one achieves within the car.”

The cabin takes inspiration from various sources including the X-Ray coded aperture masks used on the British Skylark space rocket, space itself (it features an authentic Muonionalusta meteorite embedded in the volume controller), the NASA Voyager satellites, as well as the light and dark sides of the Moon.

The perforated dashboard trim is made from stainless steel, 24-carat gold, and space grade aluminum while the cabin is available in a combination of Arctic White or Selby Grey leather.

As with any Rolls-Royce vehicle, the attention to detail goes beyond any expectations and owners will probably need weeks if not months to discover all the hidden gems inside their Ghost Tranquillity.

Besides this glorious bespoke Phantom, Rolls-Royce also has on display in Geneva Black Badge versions of the Ghost and Wraith. Additionally, the company will reveal two other bespoke models: the Cullinan Genève 2019 and Dawn Genève 2019.

No photos of these two models are available yet but the SUV is the first publicly-revealed Bespoke Cullinan Commission so we should be in for something special. Its standout feature is “The Hosting Service,” mounted within a removable Recreation Module stowed in the trunk. It includes bespoke stainless steel cocktail and seasoning services as well as glassware and American Walnut serving boards.
