The late Bijan Pakzad's legacy lives on with this one-of-a-kind Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe.
In honor of the late Bijan Pakzad, a $1.6 million one-of-a-kind Rolls Royce Drophead Coupe has been built. Now, if you're unaware of whom exactly Bijan Pakzad was, we'll explain: Mr. Pakzad was a famous Iranian-born designer of menswear and fragrances. From his exclusive boutique store on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, he made a huge impact on the fashion world. But he also designed some interesting things such as a golden Colt revolver hand gun.
More importantly, he was a car guy who owned Bentleys, a Mercedes SLR McLaren, a Bugatti Veyron, a Ferrari 430 Spider, and a Rolls-Royce Drophead coupe. Sadly, he passed away last April, but his legacy, the House of Bijan, continues. Just a few nights ago, his company unveiled his own limited-edition Rolls-Royce Drophead outside of his Rodeo Drive store during an invitation only event. Valued between $850,000 and $1.6 million, the car is definitely an eye-catcher, for better or worse. Besides all of the custom work, the Drophead coupe is powered by a mighty 6.75-liter V12 with 453hp.
It normally has a base price of $452,000, but all of the custom work and its famous designer name have more than doubled the car's value. While the quality of the custom work is undoubtedly top-notch, the overall styling is a bit too much for our tastes. But hey, it's driven on the streets of Beverly Hills after all.
