Rolls-Royce has revealed its latest one-off creation, a bespoke Phantom that celebrates the beauty of Italian Rivera and its winemaking traditions. The one-of-one Bespoke Phantom “Inspired by Cinque Terre” sets itself apart from the rest of the opulent but standard models in the Rolls-Royce line-up with a long list of special styling touches and unmatched attention to detail.
Cinque Terre, or ‘Five Lands’ in Italian, is a coastal region located in northern Italy’s Liguria that borders the Mediterranean Sea. The region is made up of five cliffside villages of Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore, and is famous for fishing and the terraced vineyards on the hills. The bespoke Phantom features numerous styling elements and motifs that pay tribute to Cinque Terre.
Starting with the outside, the one-off is finished in a unique Ligurian blue shade, while the bodywork is decorated with hand-applied Navy Blue and Jasmine double coach lines and a delicate grapes motif. However, it’s the interior of the unique Phantom where most of the bespoke artistic touches can be found. Decked out in Grace White and Navy Blue leather with jasmine accents, the cabin is adorned with a beautiful-looking grape-branch embroidery on the rear doors. Rolls-Royce claims each piece comprises of 9215 stitches and was completed using two different techniques.
The grapes motif can also be found on both picnic tables in the form of an intricate inlay, featuring a mixture of stainless steel and gold plating. One of the highlights of the one-off Phantom is its bespoke Starlight Headliner which includes an embroidered map of Italy with 14,338 individual stitches. The five gently glowing stars at the edge of the coastline are precisely positioned by hand and represent the Cinque Terre villages. Furthermore, the cabin is decorated with bespoke artwork inspired by the villages, including the Gallery which houses a specially commissioned artwork that captures the colors, architecture, and vibrant character of Cinque Terre. In addition to that, the glovebox is decorated with a silver-debossed image of the towns. Without any surprises, Rolls-Royce has chosen not to reveal the pricing or the identity of the owner.
