Rolls-Royce has unveiled a special edition lineup for its flagship Phantom models, known as the Zenith Collection. These help send off the current generation before the new model arrives.
Sadly, the current Rolls-Royce Phantom is on its way out, but before the next-generation Phantom models have their day in the sun Rolls is offering the current Phantom with a range of bespoke touches.
Rolls Royce CEO, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, billed the Zenith Collection as “the marque’s unrelenting commitment to setting and advancing the standard by which all other luxury goods are judged”.
The central console houses a polished aluminum case, with the car’s ID number, surrounded by a ‘Best English Blacking’ finish, a technique synonymous with traditional prized firearms. As well as this, the car receives a special memento from the factory it came from; a piece of the assembly line to mark the end of the line for the Phantom.
Special design touches inside include a speedometer finished in brushed steel, aluminum cup holders, a highlight leather colour-scheme for the front and rear seats, as well as individual touches to the Starlight Headliner, which are done, of course, by hand.
The Zenith Collection is the perfect companion for a weekend away, with a fridge that can accommodate two bottles of champagne, a padded leather tailgate, as well as a deployable glass shelf for serving your Dom Pérignon. There’s also a personalised Rolls-Royce picnic hamper with optional material and colour matching.
As can be expected when ordering a Rolls-Royce, the level of customisation in its bespoke program will take you as far as your bank account will stretch, but get in quick, Rolls says that “order books for these very last customer commissions will close imminently”.
Only 50 Phantom and Phantom Drophead Zenith Collection units are slated for production.
