Rolls-Royce Phantom Zenith Collection-2

As a send off to the Phantom Drophead Coupe and the Phantom Coupe, Rolls-Royce is introducing a bespoke Phantom Zenith Collection to mark the end of the seventh-generation Phantom.

Crafted at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England, the models come in madeira red, jubilee silver and a “contemporary presentation” of midnight blue and arctic white, which draws its inspiration from classic Phantoms of the 1930s. A new glass clear coat is also applied to ensure a mirror-like shine.

A Bespoke design team was tasked with bringing out the fine details. These include an enhanced split-tailgate, which houses a glass shelf in the rear section to store champagne. Furthermore, a champagne fridge that can hold two bottles and eight glasses, occupies a large portion of the boot. Those who wish to sit on the tailgate will find padded leather, lined for comfort.

A bespoke version of the Rolls-Royce Picnic Hamper, which can be colour-matched by customers, is also available. Inside the Zenith Collection Phantoms are laser engravings for the armrest cappings of the doors. The central fascia drawer comes with a memento to signify the end of the seventh-gen Phantom.

Said memento is a removable polished aluminium case, laser engraved with the car’s unique identification number and finished in Best English Blacking. Inside the case is a rare collector’s item – a piece of metal with coordinates. The coordinates specify the metal’s origins from the Assembly Line.

The speedometer comes in a brush steel, while the interior colour scheme is said to highlight the leather colour of the front seats, while the rear compartment comes in a darker colour. The Starlight Headliner has also been given a bespoke treatment with individually hand-woven stars at the front and towards the rear.

Elsewhere, the central tunnel has hints of the 2011 Phantom Coupe Aviator Collection, while blood-orange tips are applied on the instrument dials. A pair of cupholders, machined from aluminium, are available too.

On that note, production of the Phantom limousine will also come to an end this year. The eighth-generation Phantom, to arrive in 2018, will no longer be offered in coupe versions but as sedans instead. The new Phantom will be built on the company’s new space-frame aluminium architecture.
