Value-conscious customers that don’t want the burden of a hefty new-car payment are smart to consider a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle. Automakers from Audi to Kia offer such programs.
Bijan Pakzad is well known for his exclusive boutique on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, but to automotive enthusiasts, we know him as the designer of a custom yellow Bugatti Veyron which is often seen in front of his store – the same one was that sadly vandalized after his untimely death.
Deep down though, Bijan always had a passion for Rolls-Royces, having agreed to a partnership with the famed luxury car manufacturer to design and release a limited series of unique Rolls-Royce Phantoms. Unfortunately Bijan didn’t live to see his vision of a Rolls-Royce, but the unveiling of the Bijan Edition Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe would make him proud.
The Drophead Coupe clearly incorporates Bijan’s passion for all-things yellow, and the special edition vehicle is estimated to be valued at $1.6 million. Bijan executives hope to make a dozen of these creations which also feature a Bijan watch surrounded by white diamonds embedded in the dash, and a set of crystal glasses in a picnic set found in the trunk.
