The latest Bespoke Phantom Collection to emerge from Rolls-Royce is the summation of British ingenuity and creativity.
Designed exclusively for those who live their lives in the warmth of the spotlight, the Rolls-Royce Phantom Limelight Collection was built to be a beautiful blend of publicity and privacy.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom Limelight Collection delivers “authentic luxury” by capturing the personalities and “lifestyles of the powerful people who operate in the public eye and move swiftly from engagement to engagement as part of their daily life,” explains Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “The result is a beautiful, discreet [car]…[where one] can prepare, relax and arrive in the finest luxury and style.”
Like her sister the Phantom Serenity, Limelight is yet another feather in the cap of Rolls-Royce. The car exquisitely captures the habits and behaviours of those rare and influential people who change the world on a daily basis. To reflect the rarity of these persons, the Bespoke designers are making this car equally unique:
Only 25 of the Limelight Phantoms will go into production
A New Benchmark
Once again, Rolls-Royce has raised the bar in the world of luxury transportation by doing exactly what Sir Henry Royce demanded so many years ago:
“Take the best that exists and make it better.”
Unlike mass-produced luxury cars which only offer superficial extravagance, Bespoke designers provide detailed lavishness by tapping into the very essence of what it means to be a Phantom owner:
Power. Prestige. Perfection.
These three words inspired the creation of the “Phantom Suite” which include oft overlooked amenities like a personalised rear door and a new sumptuous seating configuration engineered to refine relaxation.
From major events to momentous occasions, the Phantom Limelight is the ultimate travelling companion for anyone who needs to prepare, relax and arrive in the pinnacle of Rolls-Royce luxury.
Each Limelight features a personalised rear door pannier to provide personal possessions at the drop of a hat.
His and Hers panniers are available for the customer who desires personalisation by gender. The panniers can also be adjusted to suit the needs of specific occasions as well.
The standard Ladies Pannier includes a concealed fragrance holder for three individual fragrances and two watch/jewellery holders.
The standard Gentlemen’s Pannier contains a concealed watch holder and a pocket for fragrance bottles.
For both sexes, the fragrance bottles are handmade in the famous Bresle Valley of northwest France – home to 75% of the world’s luxury perfume and spirit bottles.
Both varieties of Pannier house a universal vanity pouch with space for credit cards, business cards, spectacles or makeup and Accessory Z-Boxes, which are constructed from carbon fibre, milled in aluminium and hand covered in the finest leathers.
Optimal relaxation is reliant upon optimal positioning.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars engineers and ergonomists have toiled tirelessly to create an environment that redefines relaxation whilst in-motion. The fruit of their labour is the new rear seat of the Phantom Limelight, the perfect combination of safety, luxury and comfort.
While the seat back reclines to a recommended 27° to relax the head and upper spine, a new calf and foot rest raise to 68° and 30° respectively to provide unparalleled support for the lower leg.
Beyond seat-centric amenities, the passenger can choose between two different compartment trims and several new Bespoke features.
The Light contrast scheme sets the tone with a Seashell setting, Navy Blue Contrast Leather and Seashell tone-on-tone stitching.
For those with darker tastes, the Dark contrast scheme offers a Navy Blue environment accented by Seashell Contrast Leather and Navy tone-on-tone stitching.
Intricate embroidery pattered in the shape of a diamond pays homage to the Rolls-Royce legacy and decorates the central seat flutes, door cards, rear console and – for the first time – picnic table backs.
The Limelight’s two-veneer finish highlights the talent of the Rolls-Royce woodworking team and is a first for the Phantom, while Piano Seashell door cappings blend the veneer with the leather scheme.
Topping it all off, a brand new Smoked Chestnut veneer completes the ensemble, while a specially-built Limelight Bespoke Clock acts as the interior’s crown jewel.
As the Phantom slows to a stop on its glistening nine-spoke alloy wheels, the stunning Seashell and Navy Blue hand-painted coachline with diamond motif absolutely pops, creating illusion of a diamond bracelet draped over the surface of the car.
Now fully prepared and fully relaxed, Limelight passengers step out of the sleek, Gala Blue doors ready to dominate their next engagement.
The 25-car Phantom Limelight Collection will be available to order immediately from Rolls-Royce Motor Car dealers around the world.
