It is the end of an era over at Rolls Royce as the car company finally drops the curtain on their beloved Phantom VII. The car had been in production for 13 years and will be replaced next year by the new generation Phantom. Rolls Royce spilled the beans on the very last Phantom VII. A collector commissioned this showstopper that Rolls Royce says “has been created to celebrate the golden age of travel that Phantom defined.”
To reflect the owner’s fascination with the design and iconography of the 1930s, Rolls Royce used a nautical theme with a powder blue interior complete with details like tone-on-tone embroidery evoking the movement of the sea. The clocks, in both the front cabin and the partition wall have been mirror the style of the radio clocks that once graced grand ocean liners. The Bezel, expresses 24 time zones and allows the owner to rotate it in either direction depending on where they find themselves in the world. The to Phantom’s lambswool carpets feature a hand-cut wake effect elegantly.
The exterior is a stunning Blue Velvet, completed with a twin coachline with ocean liner motif to the shoulder, and offset by pinstripe tyres and a solid silver Spirit of Ecstasy. The marque was serious as they put the final touches on this incredibly detailed car and they gave the retired Phantom a fitting send off!
