Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II Unveiled at The Quail
Rolls-Royce has been keeping itself quite busy as of late, which is understandable considering that this year the famed company celebrated 10 years of successfully producing exquisite automobiles at their home base of Goodwood, England.
The celebration seems to carry on however, since the new Home of Rolls-Royce Collection recently received a new member in the form of a superb Phantom Series II bespoke saloon. This splendid car had its debut at The Quail, where it was highly appreciated for its superb features. And when we say features, we mean its exquisite array of woodwork elements, which comprises 170 sections obtained from 11 different sorts of wood. As with most other vehicles part of the Home of Rolls-Royce Collection, the Phantom Series II’s woodwork was applied using a high-end technique called marquetry, which resulted in a spectacular interior design worthy of the brand’s heritage.
Furthermore, an elaborate compass motif was embroidered on the car’s console lid and armrest, a process that required 100,000 stitches. The vehicle’s exterior was also adorned with the same emblem, which was applied using squirrel-hair-brush-wielding, a technique requiring over six hours of hard work.
We don’t know any specific details regarding the prices for the new Home of Rolls-Royce cars, but sources say that the Phantom Series II is expected to fetch around $400,000.
