The new Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II has been showcased to journalists from the world’s leading luxury media at a spectacular event on the magnificent French Riviera. Phantom Rendezvous, the Global Press Drive for the new Phantom, is currently occurring at the Maybourne Riviera Hotel in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, situated on the Mediterranean coast and overlooking Monaco. Guests have the opportunity to drive and be driven in, the newest embodiment of the marque’s pinnacle product officially unveiled in mid-May.
On the lawn of the Maybourne Riviera hotel, Rolls-Royce revealed two Bespoke Phantoms. Named after the silver-white finish of the coveted precious metal, platinum, Phantom Platino reflects the marque’s formative days with front seats finished in fine Rolls-Royce leather, and those in the rear wrapped in luxurious fabric.
The Great British Phantom is finished in striking Magma Red and features a Bespoke artwork in the Gallery, inspired by the Union Flag.
Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II includes only light-touch visual and aesthetic enhancements. A subtle geometric change to the Pantheon Grille makes the ‘RR’ Badge of Honour and Spirit of Ecstasy figurine more prominent when seen from the front. The grille itself is now illuminated, while the headlights are decorated with intricate laser-cut bezel starlights – adding further surprise and delight to Phantom’s night-time presence.
The French Riviera has been associated with Rolls-Royce since the first part of the 20th Century when the Côte d’Azur established itself as the favored spot of actors, artists, musicians and other wealthy luminaries of the Belle Epoque. In 1912, Sir Henry Royce built a villa, La Mimosa, in the village of Le Canadel, where he afterward spent every winter until his death in 1933.
