Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe Aviator Edition Pebble debutFri, 17 Aug 2012
Rolls Royce has created a special edition of the Phantom Coupe – the Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe Aviator Edition – to debut at Pebble Beach.
Even car makers at the very top end produce limited edition models to garner extra sales, and Rolls Royce is no different.
With the Pebble Beach petrolhead jolly about to kick-off in Monterey, Rolls Royce has revealed a limited edition Phantom Coupe – the Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe Aviator Edition – which will debut at Quail and celebrates Charles Rolls’ passion for aviation.
Finished in Aviator Grey he Phantom Coupe Aviator gets a matt finished bonnet complete with matching window and grill surrounds. The interior features a Thommen aviation-grade clock with blood orange needle tips, a metal foil upper fascia and matt black dials.
The lower fascia gets veneered in mahogany with polished stainless steel onlays with bullet-shaped ends and the transmission tunnel gets prettied-up with anodised aluminium with exposed torx fixings. Even the leather-lined glove-box gets a makeover with an embossed Charles Rolls quote, made following the Wright Brothers’ first flight: “The power of flight is as a fresh gift from the Creator, the greatest treasure yet given to man”.
The Phantom Coupe Aviator is all about paying tribute to founder Charles Rolls and the Schneider Trophy-winning Supermarine S6B – powered by a Rolls Royce R Type engine – and “ the spirit of human endeavour that drove a very British hero and subsequently led Rolls-Royce to simultaneous world speed records on land, air and in the water”
Just 35 Rolls Royce Phantom Coupe Aviator Editions are being built at a price that will no doubt be more than the £253,125 list price of the regular Phantom Coupe.
