Rolls-Royce Serenity concept features the ultimate car interior

Rolls-Royce unveils vision of its ultra-luxurious bespoke limo interior in one-off Phantom concept

While all eyes are on Rolls-Royce for the firm's forthcoming luxury SUV, its Bespoke Design team has been busy with a unique one-off Phantom limousine. Dubbed the Serenity, it uses some of the most opulent materials ever seen in a vehicle to create the ultimate money-no-object luxury car.

From the outside the Serenity concept looks like a Phantom with a bright paintjob, but don't be fooled. That exterior paintwork is Mother-of-Pearl and is the most expensive the firm has ever produced. It's a three-stage application that is hand-polished for 12 hours at the home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, West Sussex.

The overriding theme in the Phantom Serenity's cabin is the use of silk. Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Muller Otvos describes the one-of-a-kind interior as “celebrating the historical role played by silk as a symbol of ultimate elegance".

The unique smoke-green silk was sourced and hand-dyed in China, and brought back to one of Britain's oldest silk mills in Essex to be hand-woven into 10 metres of fabric – enough to clothe the Serenity interior in a process that took two days. Crimson blossoms were hand-painted onto the silk upholstery panels, culminating in 600 hours of work.

The Phantom's wood trim is upgraded to the finest Smoked Cherrywood in the Serenity, and is also cross-banded with Bamboo. Laser-cut Mother-of-Pearl inlays also adorn the cabin at various points.

It's not clear yet whether Rolls-Royce plans to offer these trim variations in its road cars, but it has always been proud of its ability to meet almost any demand from its customers, so we can expect it to be available (at a cost).
