Inspired by the Golden Age of the Raja, this eye-catchingly beautiful model was conceptualised and hand-crafted by specialists at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England, in honour of India's affinity with the super-luxury marque. 100 years ago, India's Princes and Maharajas collectively engaged in what is described as one of the world's longest relationships with one automobile manufacturer. Over a period of five decades, the Maharajas purchased over 840 unique Rolls-Royce motor cars.

Now, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is recreating the golden age of India's motoring heritage though a collection of Bespoke vehicles inspired by the Maharajas' cars. The model has already prompted strong interest from local automotive enthusiasts in Dubai and customers within the Indian community.

A host of subtle touches have been added to the Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupé to bring the Golden Age of the Raja alive in this extraordinary model. The exterior of this Maharaja inspired super-luxury vehicle dazzles in a Carrara White colour, with a Peacock emblem, the national bird of India, completing an Emerald green coachline. A Deep Green hood retracts to reveal a beautiful deck with a Peacock emblem integrated into the marquetry, a perfect complement to the Peacock detail on the bonnet.

The interior continues the striking colour theme by elegantly combining Creme Light leather with Emerald green accents, which is complemented by marquetry inlay on the facia panel top and arm rests. More elaborate Peacock emblems can be found embroidered into the headrests in Emerald green and Cobalto blue, as well as a Peacock feather pattern in Seashell stitching on the side and central armrests. The Bespoke Maharaja Peacock clock complements the interior colours with Cobalto blue and Jade elements.

Phantom is Rolls-Royce's pinnacle model. It was created with the desire to build the best car in the world, and as such is a vehicle designed without compromise. When combined with the ability for customisation through the Bespoke Programme, the result is the ultimate in automotive excellence, a modern interpretation of the luxury motor car and number one choice of transport for Dubai's elite. Dubai is the only mark Drophead Coupé, which has been two years in the making.
