Rolls Royce Phantom Tranquility

Rolls-Royce Showcases Full Bespoke Portfolio at 2019 Geneva Motor Show

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.

PJ Tucker Houston Rockets Rolls-Royce Houston

NBA Player Has Custom Air Jordans Made To Match His Rolls-Royce Cullinan from Rolls-Royce Houston

Brad Anderson of Carscoops can appreciate the custom Air Jordans we had created for Houston Rocket P.J. Tucker. We presented his custom kicks when he picked up his new Rolls-Royce Cullinan just in time to ring in the new year.

Original post via Carscoops December 31, 2018.

When you have so much money that you don’t blink an eye when buying a brand new Rolls-Royce, what do you do? If you’re 33-year-old Houston Rockets player P.J. Tucker, you have a pair of custom shoes made to match your latest four-wheeled acquisition.

Tucker may not be a household name to those outside of the United States, but to those who are fanatical about shoes, he’s very well known. In fact, he claims to own more than 2200 pairs of shoes, and during the 2017-2018 season alone, spent over $200,000 on sneakers. It’s hardly surprising then that he wanted a special pair of shoes to go with his Cullinan.

Thus, the crew at Dank & Co crafted a pair of custom kicks based on the Air Jordan 3s. The shoes feature white leather across the outside and include a Rolls-Royce logo on the tongue, while the inside is made from red fabric. Oh, and there is an alligator print on the outside.

Tucker’s Cullinan has the same white paint and the cabin is bathed in luscious red leather.

We have absolutely no idea how much a pair of custom Air Jordan 3s like these one costs, but to the NBAer it’s probably just loose change. After all, he’s owned a own a number of impressive exotics, including a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, a Ferrari 488 Spider, and a Rolls-Royce Phantom.

The first issue of ‘Pinnacle,’ a motoring magazine highlighting luxury travel destinations and profiles of industry pioneers, debuted offering guests a photo opportunity within a replica of the magazine’s cover. Fine catering from The Post Oak Hotel and entertainment from DJ Senega rounded out the memorable evening.
