Arabian horse inspires bespoke Rolls Royce Phantom Mirage [w/gallery]Thu, 29 Mar 2012
Rolls-Royce has created a bespoke Phantom Coupé named Mirage, inspired by the powerful Arabian stallion of the same name that became famous during the 1920s and ‘30s.
The one-off car, designed for the United Arab Emirates market, features a matte black exterior with horse's head incorporated into its coachline detail, a motif that continues into the Mugello Red and black interior. There is also silver detailing such as the rope inlay on the front fascia and door capping.
The silver inlay in the passenger display panel is set against elm cluster veneer and the embroidery on the front and rear headrests. This color and trim exercise also displays the capabilities of Rolls Royce's Bespoke operations.
Based at Goodwood, West Sussex, the Bespoke team consists of designers, engineers and project management staff and was doubled in size last year to supply market demand, bringing the number of Bespoke experts to over 50.
