There are an array of luxury vehicles available on the market. Each has its own brand and ethos. Some have been designed to be flashy, others understated so its unpractical to really pit these against each other. That being said, the Rolls-Royce brand immediately evokes imagery of success and ultra-exclusivity. The ultimate statement that one has ‘arrived’, that being said, I am not sure that ‘arrived’ might be the right term. If you’ve ever been in the back of a Rolls I am not quite sure why you would want to get out once arrived! Each cabin is designed for the ultimate in luxury and comfort. But the Rolls-Royce Extended Wheelbase Phantom Privacy Suite.
For decades some of the world’s most important deals and agreements have been brokered and signed in the back of Rolls-Royces but with the new design, we expect that a lot more will be done in the future. The level of comfort, efficiency and above all privacy is paramount in the new design. Whether you need privacy for work or in desperate need of some quiet and alone time to revive while rushing from point A to B the new Rolls-Royce Extended Wheelbase Phantom Privacy Suite is just what is needed.
Rolls-Royce has managed to keep the old-world luxury and feel alive that the brand is so well known for while keeping not just up to date but at the forefront of technology and the utilisation thereof. The new Rolls-Royce Extended Wheelbase Phantom Privacy Suite is the exception to this. The Electrochromatic Glass installed in the cabin allows front and rear cabins to be visually separated at the touch of a button. The rear occupant is offered the option to see through the glass and on to the road ahead or to instantly transform the glass to opaque, providing a highly sophisticated and absolute level of privacy.
The acoustic insulation found within the new Rolls-Royce privacy suite has already been labelled the quietest in the world. This level of soundlessness allows the passenger to completely relax and isolate them from the rest of the outside world whilst travelling.
A frequency-specific compound inhibits the transmission of conversations in the rear cabin to the front cabin, yet a fully integrated Intercom System allows communication on demand. Controlled by the rear passenger, the Intercom System can be used to open a direct line to the driver at the press of a button whilst the driver is able to ‘call’ the rear occupants, who can choose to answer or reject the communication.
“In addition, a large aperture controlled solely by the rear passenger allows documents or other objects to be easily passed between the front and rear cabins. When open, the aperture is discretely illuminated to ensure passengers are satisfied with the nature of the documents or objects before they receive them.”
A Bespoke Rear Theatre Entertainment system has also been integrated into the Privacy Suite, which includes two high definition 12-inch monitors linked to the motor car’s suite of fully connected software as well as an HDMI port that allows passengers to synchronise their highly secure personal devices. This complex execution of craftsmanship and technology is deployed and controlled from the centre console and, combined with Starlight Headliner and Bespoke Clock, creates a peerless ambience for passengers.
In addition to the Privacy Glass that can allow for extra privacy as well as the sound insulation, the cabin has furthermore been fit with Rear Privacy Curtains. These privacy curtains which allows for the full closure of the side and rear window as well as Rear Privacy Glass, extending discretion when the curtains are open. This level of privacy allows the passenger exclusive discretion and, without sounding too washed, privacy from the outside world. The race to get out of the car as quickly as possible might now be turned around as the new Rolls-Royce Extended Wheelbase Phantom Privacy Suite makes the vehicle journey as much of a destination as the destination being travelled to itself.
