Rolls-Royce Is Making A One-Off Special Phantom For Its 115th Birthday

Rolls-Royce and RM Sotheby’s have revealed that a bespoke 2020 Rolls-Royce Phantom will be auctioned off this fall to celebrate the 115th birthday celebration of the British car manufacturer.

A single teaser image, in the form of a design sketch, has been released of the one-off Phantom. It shows that the vehicle will be painted in a bright shade of red but limited other exterior details are visible. However, we do expect to see a number of other elements which denote the one-off’s significance, including distinctive badging.

According to Rolls-Royce, the car will include “an original hand-crafted leather work of art” in the cabin. The presence of a red exterior leads us to believe that Rolls-Royce will likely throw in a number of red accents throughout the car’s interior. The cabin should also include special door sills and a handful of custom plaques. While we don’t expect the company to cover the cabin with parts denoting the car as a one-off, it will surely include some references to its distinctive character.

Buying a Rolls-Royce Phantom is something only the wealthiest people could ever dream of and prices for bog-standard models start at approximately $450,000. Once you start ticking those expensive options boxes, prices can easily soar to well over $600,000. With this in mind, there’s every chance that the one-off Phantom bound for the auction block will be sold for in excess of $1 million, a decent amount more than the $780,000 which was paid for the very first eight-generation Phantom to roll off the production line.

    “Buying a Rolls-Royce Phantom is something only the wealthiest people could ever dream of” what is this garbage waffle?

    Here we go with the over use of “bespoke” again although in this instance, it may be appropriate. I predict this car will have bespoke paint, bespoke leather seats, bespoke carpets, bespoke wood veneer, a bespoke interior ceiling treatment, bespoke fitted luggage, and probably a bespoke key fob

    • GIVEN THAT EVERY ROLLS IS MADE FOR A PARTICULAR CUSTOMER ALL OF THEM ARE BESPOKE.

        If that were true, it would be impossible to buy a brand new Rolls out of the showroom. Rolls Royce of Manhattan has 9 brand new Rollers for sale. Rolls Royce of Beverly Hills has 38 new Rollers in stock. Try again.

        • YOU GET MY POINT. TRY AGAIN.
