A special Zenith Collection of fifth Coupe and Drophead models have been produced by Rolls Royce which will send farewell to the current generation Phantom. The luxury fleets will bear unique features and have been tailor-made to suit the preferences of the customers. As with any special edition RR models, all the Zenith collection Phantoms have been sold out already.
Some of the distinctive features offered in the Phantom Zenith Collection are a large champagne fridge, glass shelf sheltered in the tailgate as you can see from the picture, a peculiar version of the picnic hamper amongst several other affluent equipment and technologies. The laser engraved armrests depicts the locations where the model’s concepts debuted through the years.
Villa D’Este in Italy and Lake Geneva between Switzerland and France are embossed in the Drophead and Coupe versions respectively. The dashboard consists of a drawer that houses a numbered plaque in polished aluminium case, displaying which one of the fifty models the customer has bought.
The other unique features for these ‘true collectors pieces’ are a piece of metal extracted from Phantom’s assembly unit in Goodwood and the geographical coordinates in which the metal was from. The speedo is treated in brushed steel and the leather’s colour has been darkened on rear cabin compartments. This puts the emphasise on the driver-oriented theme Rolls Royce elected to go with.
The Starlight headliner was tailored for better comfort as the erstwhile generation models were chosen to select the colour schemes. The paint jobs such as Madeira Red with Jubilee Silver and a Midnight Blue with Arctic White are heavily influenced by the legendary 1930 Phantoms. The eighth generation Phantom was spied running trials already and it will be the first to utilise full aluminium structure for improved driveability and sumptuous comfort. The last of the 13 year old Phantom (Phantom Coupe and Drophead Coupe) will be rolled out of production lines in Goodwood by November.
