Rolls-Royce Releases Art Deco Editions in Paris

Special Editions / Comments

Rolls-Royce Bespoke is showing off its wares at the 2012 Paris Motor Show with a trio of special editions inspired by the Art Deco era.

Rolls-Royce is known as the purveyor of ultra-luxury in automobiles and, but for its wealthiest clients, it offers a customization service called Rolls-Royce Bespoke. This year for the Paris Motor Show, the personalization division prepared a trio of special editions. Previewed in the days running up to the show, the special series draws inspiration from the 1925 Paris Exhibition where Art Deco styling made its mark.

Based on the Ghost, Phantom sedan and Phantom Drophead Coupe, each model is enhanced by unique touches to set it apart from "ordinary" Rolls-Royces, as if there were such a thing. Some of the more notable bespoke features include hand-crafted stainless-steel inlays, special-edition logos stitched into the headrests, ornamental glassware and a rear picnic table designed in a geometric coachline pattern, all in the 1920s-era Art Deco style. Rolls-Royce Bespoke has also released several unique finishes for the Phantom editions.

Included among them are Arabian blue, Power blue, Arctic white and Infinity black. An illuminated Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament further enhances the look. The special edition Ghost is distinguished by a two-tone exterior treatment, with an Olympia-inspired motif for the interior with four seat piping colors. The Ghost, Phantom sedan and Phantom Drophead Coupe Art Deco special editions are all currently on display at Rolls-Royce's booth at the Paris Motor Show. Expect to pay a healthy premium over an already-expensive "standard" Rolls if you want to drive one home, though - or be driven home in one.
