Rolls-Royce has officially opened its first showroom in Malaysia, one of only 81 dealerships in the world. Located along Jalan Semangat, Petaling Jaya, the showroom is part of the Quill 9 building and is owned by Quill Motorcars. Quill also has a BMW dealership in the same building.
If you’re wondering, yes, the showroom has been around for quite some time now – it was the venue of the Rolls-Royce Ghost preview we covered back in January 2010 – but it gets an official opening today with ribbon cutting by Deputy Minister of Finance Dato Donald Lim, Rolls-Royce Asia Pacific Regional Director Paul Harris and Group Executive Director of Quill Group Dato’ Michael Ong, among other VIPs.
The new 224 square metre showroom houses three Rolls-Royce cars and has a lounge that allows customers to configure their car using colour, wood and leather samples from RR’s manufacturing plant in Goodwood. When buying a Rolls-Royce, anything is possible.
Here’s a quote from Thomas Jefferson, Bespoke Sales and Communications Manager at RR: “We’re here to make your Rolls-Royce as unique as you are. You name it, we make it happen.”
Some of the bolder requests they’ve received include leather floors, illuminated Spirit of Ecstasy figurines, a Hermes roof interior and wait for this: veneers made from a tree grown in the customer’s estate! By the way, the options list already has 20 standard veneers and 25 bespoke veneers, so you’ll have to be the fussiest billionaire to require something else.
According to RR, every Phantom client is invited to witness the “marriage of the car to its engine” at Goodwood and receives a 72-page book charting the production of their unit.
We can’t possibly detail everything about RR customisation, so potential owners will have to pay the showroom a visit for the full shebang. The Rolls-Royce Ghost is priced from RM2.1 million while the Phantom family (Standard Wheelbase, Extended Wheelbase, Drophead Coupe, Coupe) is priced from RM3.3 million. Each new RR comes with a 4-year unlimited mileage warranty and 24-hour roadside assistance.
