The ‘Concorsod’Eleganza Villa d’Este’ had this year a very special guest: a Rolls-Royce Phantom Zenith in the Drophead Coupe version. Rolls-Royce announced the Zenith Collection as the epilogue to Phantom production. It has a series of details that differentiate it, like the refrigerator with capacity for two bottles of champagne accompanied by eight glasses engraved with the logo of the British mark and a picnic table. Only 50 units of the Rolls-Royce Phantom Zenith Edition will be manufactured in its Coupe and Drophead Coupe versions, and its owners will be able to opt for the classic paintings that once wore the Phantom II – marketed between 1929 and 1936. Other details that differentiate the Zenith from the rest of the Phantom line are the chrome-plated steel speedometer and the tapestry that is different for the front and rear seats. The Rolls-Royce Phantom Zenith Edition will be delivered to its customers until next November. Each unit will carry a nameplate that will identify its production number. Rolls-Royce reports that Zenith Edition will be ‘the best of its kind; the pinnacle, the best of its kind ‘. Regarding the new generation of Rolls-Royce Phantom, for now the details are minimal. It is known to have a more evolved design and will be based on a new aluminum architecture of new development that will support the rest of the line of products of the mark from 2018.

2016 – ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM SACRED FIRE
Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke division is not new to the British brand. Customers have been customizing their models practically since the founding of the company itself. We have made that clear, given that with the avalanche of models that the brand has announced lately, such as the Ghost Red Diamond Edition and the Phantom Nautica, anyone can imagine that is something new for the British. And the last one to add to the list is the Rolls-Royce Phantom Sacred Fire. It is a unique Rolls-Royce inspired by Vietnamese culture, the first vehicle manufactured by the brand that honors the cultural heritage of the Asian country. As deduced by its denomination, it is based on the manufacturer’s flagship car, the Rolls-Royce Phantom, in this case in its extended version, as it could not be otherwise. Its main exterior feature is the two-tone paint, with two different colors for the roof and the bottom of the body. The latter zone also includes ornamental elements painted by hand as you can see in the gallery of images. Compared with some of his latest creations, such as the Phantom EWB Zahara, the new Phantom Sacred Fire comes out much more discreet, betting on leathers with elegant mustard and burgundy shades. There is no shortage of gold accents, either on the dashboard or on the embroidery of the four head restraints of the vehicle. Undoubtedly, it is a work of art that demonstrates the high level of craftsmen who are in charge of manufacturing Rolls-Royce cars.
2016 – ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM ZENITH COLLECTION
Rolls-Royce will launch a special and finest edition of its Phantom models in the Coupe and Drophead Coupe versions, which will be called ‘Zenith Collection’ and will feature a limited production of only 50 units. Already in the market for 13 years, the Phantom has become an icon of the British brand and its farewell is already around the corner.

The top versions, presented by the brand as ‘the pinnacle, the best of its kind’ feature several new features. One of the most valued in the Rolls-Royce release is its split-trunk opening, with one of the levels counting on the spaces and fittings needed to make these versions ideal models for outdoor gatherings. To fill some of these spaces is available, for example, a bottle of champagne, which can be chilled in the onboard mini-refrigerator with space for two bottles. The lower level of the trunk itself has surface padding so that two people can sit down while digesting their glass of champagne. Also noteworthy for the armrests with laser engraving of the premiere locations of each version of the model – the 100EX Concept in Villa D’Este in Italy and the 101EX Concept in Geneva, Switzerland, which gave rise to to these Phantom.

The madmen of the trainers have no limit. Mansory presented its latest program involving the Rolls-Royce Wraith combining gold with the opulence of the vehicle. The preparer used the precious metal to make his latest creation, called ‘Palm Edition 999’, even more striking. The Rolls-Royce Wraith includes gold on door handles, side skirt inserts, front vents and 22-inch alloy wheels with Vredestein 265/35 tires. Inside, history repeats itself. The center console and all logos and emblems were replaced with other 24 carat gold finishes. The ‘999’ of the name refers to the purity of the gold.

2016 – ROLLS-ROYCE WRAITH BLACK BADGE EDITION
Rolls-Royce is a brand with a certain type of customer, but at the Geneva Motor Show they presented the Rolls-Royce Ghost and Wraith Black Badge, with the intention of attracting a younger clientele. It is a new special edition in which the Wraith and Ghost adopt a black costume that only radiates some light in some silver details. Bespoke, a division of special projects of the British brand, worked to make black as pure and intense as possible. The customer can order any other color for the body if desired. The black takes over the whole body, but also extends to the front grille, to the figure of the ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’ and even makes visually disappear some chromed elements in the lower part of the car. Chromed windows and door knobs, as well as the grid stripes, lose their brightness to a darker and satin tone, according to the other parts of the special edition Black Badge. The 22-inch wheels are unique to the edition and are made of aluminum alloy and carbon fiber.
For the interior of Rolls-Royce Ghost and Wraith Black Badge the brand used materials such as carbon fiber for all frames and inserts, replacing the classic and elegant wood, seeking a more sporty and youthful look. Aerospace grade aluminum is another present material that combines very well with carbon fiber, melting both materials. The ventilation outlets were also darkened. For that occasion was incorporated a specific Black Badge watch with pointers of orange tip and ball adorned by the logo of the mark. This same logo is embroidered on the seats, which combine the black leather with the ‘Tailored Purple’ in the Ghost and with the ‘Cobalto Blue’ in the Wraith, giving a different and light touch. The interior ceiling finishes with an ambient lighting that simulates a starry black sky. Something interesting about the two Rolls-Royces Black Badge is that their mechanics were boosted. Both share the same 6.6 liter V12 engine, but the Ghost develops 603 hp and 840 Nm of torque, a gain of 40 hp and 80 Nm compared to the other versions known to date. The 8-speed automatic transmission has also been recalibrated to contribute to a better response and more dynamic behavior based on the throttle positions and the use of the brake. On the other hand, the Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge raises its horsepower to 623 hp and becomes the most powerful Rolls-Royce ever, and also receives optimized transmission. Definitely, the British sought the sporting side of these stylish models. Increases in power come with larger brakes.
2016 – ROLLS-ROYCE WRAITH NAUTICAL EDITION
If there is one thing that luxury automakers have in common is the personalization and use of premium materials in the finishing of their vehicles. With infinite color combinations and material types, customers can set up their vehicle virtually every millimeter. Although it is a special edition, the new Rolls-Royce Wraith Nautical is no different from the others, and also allows the Bespoke division of the British brand, in charge of the special editions, to present a 2 + 2 seat coupe with a series of different aesthetic touches both exterior and interior, which demonstrate the nautical essence of the luxurious model, giving it an extra aspect of distinction and elegance, very personal and characteristic. The Nautical edition was personalized with a body in two shades: Arabic blue and English white that counts on the famous lateral line in the body of the models and culminating with the emblem of the marine anchor of this edition. On the other hand, in the cabin comes a wood finish with details in the panel, which resembles the covers of yachts and luxury boats and combines with camel brown and navy blue tones that complete the interior. In addition, the model also has the ‘Starlight Headliner’ of its interior ceiling, an illumination that imitates the stars in the sky through the use offiber optics and that can be configured with the standard or any constellation requested by the client. Underneath the hood hides the same imposing engine that equips the Rolls-Royce Wraith as standard, a V12 biturbo block of 6.6 liters which develops a power of 624 hp and 800 Nm of torque. For now the price of this version has not been disclosed, although as with all Rolls-Royce models, it is only possible to know the starting price: 270,000 pounds (about 1,400,000 reais).
