Inside, the unique Phantom‘s handcrafted Bespoke leather interior features a color scheme of Arctic White with Mugello Red highlights. Rolls-Royce used 9 hides of hand-selected and drum-dyed leather to create this interior. Highlights also include the wood veneers finished by hand with six coats of lacquer and the Mugello Red Shooting Starlight Headliner with 1,600 fiber optic lights extending the entire length of the interior.

The Gallery on the dashboard features a Bespoke Mugello Red leather design entitled ‘Regatta Sails’ assembled in a clean room environment. Red leather also covers the steering wheel and the stalks, and can also be found throughout the lavish cabin. Rounding off the changes are the custom tread plates celebrating the 115th Anniversary of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

The Bespoke Phantom will be unveiled at a gala event at the One Thousand Museum in Miami on December 4, when Sotheby’s and RM Sotheby’s will launch the exclusive online auction.

The winning bidder will have the opportunity to collaborate with contemporary artist Mickalene Thomas, who will create a custom wrap for the exterior based on an original work of art inspired by the Red Phantom for the collector.
