Are These Rolls-Royces An Eye Sore?


Or something that stands for luxury?

Rolls-Royce has always been at the top of the list forenthusiasts looking for luxury, but the automaker has recently made a majordeviation from understated luxury to flashy, in-your-face luxury. Take thebrand’s latest special editions for example. The Rolls-Royce Phantom CoupeTiger and Ghost Golf Edition debuted at the 2015 Dubai Motor Show and arearguably the flashiest special editions we’ve ever seen from the automaker. Likeits name implies, the Phantom Coupe Tiger gets its inspiration from the ferociousanimal.

The Phantom Coupe Tiger is finished in a two-tone paint jobthat includes Burnt Orange and Arizona Sun, which is highlighted by a Tigermotif twin coach line. The inside of the luxury vehicle is finished tan andseashell colored leather with hand-stitched Tiger motifs on the seat headrests.To really set this Phantom apart from others, there are Maccasser Ebony Veneersand Bespoke Tiger Phantom tread plates, as well as Moccasin Lambswool floormats. The Phantom Coupe Tiger doesn't really look like it's based off an animal, but it's something that we can get behind. A special vehicle that's based off of a ferocious animal is cool, but a vehicle that is meant to portray the game of Golf is ridiculous.
