Check out some of the press coverage for the all-new V8.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars returned to the Geneva Motor Show and debuted its full current product portfolio for the first time on an international stage. Representing the near-infinite Bespoke possibilities at the heart of its record-breaking success in 2018, the marque will present one of an extraordinary collection of 25 Phantoms alongside the first publicly-revealed Bespoke Cullinan commission. In addition, two powerful visions of Black Badge and a highly Bespoke Dawn will be revealed, each informed by the taste patterns of a younger, more assertive breed of entrepreneur drawn to the brand.
Created for those who conceive and achieve the impossible, Tranquillity is an expression of Phantom’s standing as the rarest and most desired object in the luxury world. This Collection is strictly limited to just 25 examples worldwide and available as both Phantom and Phantom Extended Wheelbase, which discerning collectors have already purchased.
For the precious few who commission a Phantom, the realization of their personal vision represents a moment that sees them view the world from a rare place. Phantom Tranquillity is a statement piece for the visionaries who push beyond accepted limits. Named and crafted to celebrate the feeling of euphoric tranquillity one achieves within the car, this unique Phantom beautifully curates objects and inspirations from worlds beyond earthly bounds.
Within Tranquillity’s Gallery is a design inspired by the X-Ray coded aperture masks used on the British Skylark space rocket. High energy radiation passes over and through the distinctive perforated pattern, creating a coded shadow on the layers beneath. The properties of the original radiation sources were mathematically reconstructed from this shadow and rendered in highly reflective stainless steel, 24-karat gold plating and space grade aluminum.
Space exploration is further manifested with a unique first for Rolls-Royce; the incorporation of meteorite within the Volume Controller, further enhanced with a polished gold grip that matches the gold finish in the Collection Gallery, creating a distinctive accent feature. This remarkable application of authentic Muonionalusta meteorite, which fell to earth in Kiruna, Sweden in 1906, is complemented by detailed engraving of the location and date of its discovery.
Inspired by the light and dark sides of the Moon, the interior colorway of Arctic White or Selby Grey leather integrates unique veneer combinations of gloss and satin, both with an exclusive metallic effect. Black gloss runs from the fascia onto all the center consoles, while a satin finish is used for the upper glovebox and door armrests. Black gloss elements are highlighted with elegant stainless steel Pinstripes.
In both the Light and Dark variants, Bespoke Audio Speaker Frets are finished in yellow gold, complementing the additional gold elements throughout the car. These unique elements are inspired by the historic NASA ‘Voyager’ satellites that carried into space two gold records with sounds and images that portrayed the diversity of life and culture on Earth, for any intelligent extra-terrestrial life that might find them.
A unique embroidery detail on the Extended Wheelbase door panel matches the pattern on the Collection Gallery with tone-on-tone stitching for a subtle, crafted detail. A Bespoke ‘Technical’ yellow gold, vapor blasted and engraved titanium clock complement the interplanetary motif alongside an engineered titanium Spirit of Ecstasy with yellow gold accents.
