Rolls-Royce unveils bespoke Phantom inspired by yachts

Fine British car manufacturer Rolls-Royce has unveiled its latest bespoke Phantom design – and it’s inspired by classic yachts.

Retaining the classic Phantom silhouette – surely one of Rolls-Royce’s most famous and striking – the aptly named Nautica features a two-tone paint job. The roof, bonnet and boot lid are in a shimmering Arabian Blue while the lower half of the car is in Orchid White.

The coachline also bears an anchor motif while the chrome hubcaps have been updated with a blue ring encasing a gold and navy Rolls-Royce ‘R’.

The nautical theme continues inside the car where Tudor Oak veneers resembling the teak decking of yacht create a focal point on the dashboard. The seats, along with parts of the door and dashboard, are upholstered in Forest Fall leather and finished with navy blue piping while the passenger side panel features another anchor motif in its marquetry.

A final nod to the car’s yachting inspiration comes in the form of a compass. Made specifically for this one-off Phantom, it takes pride of place on the dashboard and is the perfect finishing tough to this stunning vehicle.

However, this is not the first marine-themed car Rolls-Royce has created. This summer the luxury car brand has been offering three limited edition custom-built Wraiths for test drive at the Rolls-Royce Summer Pop-Up in Porto Cervo, Sardinia.
