Rolls-Royce has released their one-off made especially for the horse lovers amongst us.
Rolls-Royce's Bespoke Division, made especially for the Middle East, has just released their latest one-off. The Mirage, meant for the... cough... horse lover is based on the Phantom Coupe and features a slick, black exterior combined with a luxurious mugello red and black interior. The Mirage, an Arabian horse bought by the King of Iraq in the early 20th century, was a champion race-horse and was a stud during the 20's and 30's.
Apparently the horse's bloodlines are still present in many modern day Arabian race horses. Fitting then that his head (in emblem form, of course) would adorn the headrests and several other places around the one-off Roller. "The synergies between the Arabian horse and the Rolls-Royce brand are hard to ignore. Arabian Horses are one of the oldest equine breeds in existence, renowned for their refined physical attributes, fine temperament and strong bloodline; just as Rolls-Royce is synonymous with exquisite design, flawless performance and pioneering heritage," said RR Brand Manager Kadhim Al Helli of Abu Dhabi Motors.
"This car celebrates those shared qualities by embodying the spirit of a true champion, Mirage, the perfect example of a Classic Arabian Horse." Carbon fiber was used throughout the interior and exterior of the Mirage Phantom Coupe, while a set of 21-inch forged wheels give it an even further distinct look. There is also a distinctive plate on the door sills just in case you forget you are rolling around in a one-off Rolls. The Rolls-Royce Mirage Phantom Coupe was designed by Al Helli and built by the company's specialists in Goodwood, England.
