In Chinese tradition the dragon is viewed as a symbolic representation of good fortune and power. This being the year of the dragon, Rolls-Royce is offering a Year of the Dragon Collection to honor its celebration.
A Phantom or Phantom Extended Wheelbase is featured in the collection. Inspired by Beijing’s Forbidden City, a hand-painted gold dragon is featured on both sides of the car.
The interior continues that theme, with a dragon hand-embroidered on each headrest, an available seat piping option, and a color selection to compliment the embordieries’ palette. Dragon inlays are placed on each car’s passenger side, with the Phantom name written in gold.
Rolls-Royce applies its own logo to two cushions made for rear passengers. LED lighting on all the door sills’ treadplates reads ‘Year of the Dragon 2012’.
Torsten Muller-Otvos, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars CEO speaks about the new design, saying “At Rolls-Royce Motor Cars we delight in bringing new, exclusive designs to our customers. The Bespoke team elegantly captures the imagination with this Year of the Dragon Collection, celebrating the turning of a New Year of prosperity and good fortune with this unique creative offering.”
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Bespoke Sales Manager Thomas G. Jefferson also notes “The Bespoke team is privileged to commemorate the Chinese Year of the Dragon with this exciting Collection. This limited edition car embodies the synergy of craftsmanship, creativity and culture in a manner that is uniquely Rolls-Royce.”
