A bespoke special edition Rolls-Royce Phantom has been revealed, paying homage to the Goodwood Motor Circuit

The Rolls-Royce Chicane Phantom Coupe - a new special edition model - has been revealed, which has been designed to celebrate the unique atmosphere and history of the Goodwood Motor Circuit. The one-of-a-kind model incorporates design cues and materials that evoke Goodwood’s rich motorsport history.

On the outside, the Rolls-Royce Chicane Phantom has been fitted with new alloys to match the gunmetal exterior paint finish, along with the bonnet and windscreen surround finished in matt black. This is the first time this feature has been made available on a Rolls-Royce and the overhaul continues on the inside, too.

The traditional wood interior makes way for a modern carbon fibre dash, and chequered-flag motifs have been stitched on to the seats. The homage to the Goodwood track is complete with a metal plaque showing the car's name and the track layout discreetly hidden in the glove compartment.

“I wanted to create a motor car that captures the unique atmosphere and history of the Goodwood Motor Circuit,” said Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Dubai Brand Manager, Mohammed EL-Arishy, “The home of Rolls-Royce’s connection to such an important centre of British motoring heritage is something that fascinates my customers.”

Rolls Royce has created bespoke cars like the Chicane Phantom Coupe before. A customer has previously requested an exterior paint colour matching their favourite eye shadow, while another requested wood-veneer sourced from a tree on a their estate.

The Rolls-Royce Chicane Phantom Coupe is powered by the same 6.75-litre V12 engine as the standard Phantom and the car is likely to remain a bespoke one-off model.
