Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has unveiled the latest Phantom Limelight Collection, which is limited to just 25 cars only. It will be available to order immediately from company dealers around the world. There is a new rear seat to feature first in the Phantom Limelight, which reclines the body by a recommended 27° helping to rest the head on the headrest cushion. Lower down the body, a new calf rest raises electrically by 68° to support the calf, whilst a foot rest emerges out of the floor to raise the feet up to 30°.
A unique personalised rear door pannier has been designed for the Rolls-Royce Phantom Limelight. Ladies’ and Gentleman’s panniers are offered with gender preferences. The Ladies’ and the Gentleman’s panniers can also be personalised as well. In the standard configuration, the Concealed Fragrance Holder for three individual fragrances is located in the top left pocket of the Ladies’ pannier whilst in the Gentlemen’s pannier the concealed section holds watches. The concealed panel opens at an effortless push of the hand. The top right pocket, which is open, contains the fragrance bottles in the Gentlemen’s pannier whilst in the Ladies’ are two watch or jewellery holders.
The bottom left pocket houses a universal vanity pouch made of the finest materials, with space for credit cards, business cards, spectacle storage or makeup, whilst Ladies’ and Gentleman’s Accessory Z-Boxes, constructed from carbon fibre, milled in aluminium and hand covered in the finest leathers, complete the door pannier.
Also contributing to the passenger’s relaxation is the choice of two compartment trims as well as several new Bespoke features. The Light contrast scheme features Seashell with Navy Blue Contrast Leather and Seashell tone-on-tone stitching, whilst the Dark contrast scheme offers Navy Blue with Seashell Contrast Leather and Navy tone-on-tone stitching. Complex embroidery inspired by a diamond shape has been applied to the central seat flutes, door cards, rear console and for the first time to the Picnic Table backs. Unique to this Collection and a first for Phantom, is a two-veneer finish that shows off the unique skills of the woodworkers at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
Piano Seashell specific to this collection is applied to the door cappings, blending the veneer with the leather schemes. Smoked Chestnut completes the colour scheme, the first time that this veneer has been used in Phantom. A specially created Limelight Bespoke Clock draws influence from the rich Gala Blue paint exterior and the diamond motif design that runs throughout the collection. Rolling to a halt on its unique nine-spoke alloy wheels, the beautiful motor car features a Seashell and Navy Blue hand-painted coachline with a diamond motif, creating a three dimensional illusion of a diamond bracelet draped over the surface of the car.
