Rolls-Royce has unveiled yet another bespoke project, the Chicane Phantom Coupe.
While dining at the Goodwood Hotel, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Dubai Brand Manager, Mohammed EL-Arishy became inspired by the unique atmosphere and history of the Goodwood Motor Circuit. So EL-Arishy sat down with the Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke design team to come up with the Chicane Phantom Coupe.
Incorporating design cues and materials that evoke Goodwood’s rich motorsport history, the Chicane Phantom Coupe’s interior forgoes the traditional interior wood finish for carbon fiber while the hood and windscreen surround have been finished in a matte black. Finishing the entire project is Gunmetal exterior paint with color-matched wheels, the first time the feature has been used on a contemporary Rolls-Royce car.
Inside, the historic racing theme continues with a chequered flag motif stitching on the seats. The homage to Goodwood is completed with a metal plaque expressing the car’s name and Goodwood’s famous track layout located in the glove compartment.
“Customers often task us with designing cars themed around a particularly passion or interest. The customer leads the creative process, working in collaboration with us to create a highly personal, one-off masterpiece. As Bespoke designers we take great satisfaction in turning these dreams into reality,” said Gavin Hartley, Bespoke Design Manager.
