With Middle East sales of their cars skyrocketing, Rolls Royce is following in the footsteps of their former stablemate at Bentley and introducing a special edition Phantom that celebrates the region.

The four door Phantom will be named after the Baynunah region of Abu Dhabi, with a sand-themed color palate both inside and out. The two-door Phantom, known as the Shaheen (a type of Falcon native to the region) is a little bit more extroverted, with a white exterior, and a striking red interior with “seashell” inserts and a Falcon motif on the headrests.

Rolls Royce customers in Abu Dhabi will also have access to the company’s bespoke program, which allows customers to go above and beyond the traditional options list to create truly custom cars.
