Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, renowned for its timeless craftsmanship and opulent vehicles, is set to make a groundbreaking appearance at this year’s Festival of Speed.
The Festival’s Laundry Green, located next to the esteemed Goodwood House, will be graced by the presence of a carefully commissioned collection featuring the iconic Phantom, Ghost, Cullinan, and the highly anticipated Spectre. These bespoke vehicles represent the pinnacle of automotive artistry and commemorate the brand’s remarkable 20-year production legacy at the prestigious Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood.
Rolls-Royce Spectre: Unveiling the Future of Luxury Electric Vehicles
In a moment that will forever shape Rolls-Royce’s history, the luxury car manufacturer announced its firm commitment to electric technology in 2021. At the forefront of this electrifying future is the remarkable Rolls-Royce Spectre, an all-electric super coupé that sets new standards of automotive excellence. With a vision to achieve a fully electric portfolio by the end of 2030, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has embarked on an extraordinary journey towards a sustainable and electrified future.
Spectre has undergone an extensive testing program, covering an impressive distance of 2.5 million kilometres. This rigorous testing has proven the vehicle’s capabilities and ensured its exceptional performance. Last October, the world witnessed the grand unveiling of Spectre at the Home of Rolls-Royce in West Sussex. Since then, global opinion leaders have showered the car with unequivocal praise. The much-anticipated first customer deliveries are scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2023.
For the very first time, Rolls-Royce Spectre will take centre stage at this year’s Festival of Speed. Adorned in a striking two-tone Chartreuse and Black Diamond finish, this unique interpretation of the marque’s genre-defining motor car embodies the essence of contemporary luxury. To enhance Spectre’s dynamic presence, the vehicle is equipped with remarkable twenty-three-inch wheels, a distinctive feature unseen on a two-door coupé for nearly a century. The Chartreuse interior appointments echo the exterior colour scheme, while the combination of Grace White and Peony Pink creates an atmosphere of tranquillity and serenity within the cabin.
Excitement mounts as Rolls-Royce Spectre prepares to conquer the famous Hillclimb course at Goodwood during the Festival’s Supercar Run, further solidifying its status as a trailblazer in the world of luxury electric vehicles.
Rolls-Royce Phantom: Defining the Ultimate in Bespoke Luxury
Nestled at the pinnacle of luxury, the Phantom Extended reigns supreme without any discernible rivals. With its lavish interior suite, regal design, and limitless potential for personalization, the Phantom sets the benchmark for unrivalled luxury. It is only fitting that the Phantom takes pride of place on the Laundry Green stand at this year’s Festival of Speed.
Inspiration for Rolls-Royce commissions stems from a myriad of sources, and the brand’s talented collective of artisans, designers, and engineers consistently marvel at the aspirations and visions of their esteemed clientele. For the Festival of Speed, the allure of yachting has captivated their attention, a popular pastime among Rolls-Royce’s distinguished patrons. Thus, a captivating exterior hue, Submariner Blue, was meticulously chosen for this exceptional commission. The colour’s deep oceanic tones evoke a sense of maritime splendour.
Stepping into the inviting cabin of the Phantom, the nautical theme gracefully unfolds. The steering wheel, seat belts, and front interior are predominantly adorned with Navy accents, creating a harmonious contrast. In contrast, the rear interior boasts a Selby Grey finish, accentuated by Sunset stitching.
The Phantom offers a unique opportunity for patrons to showcase their eclectic art pieces, sculptures, or self-expression through the Gallery. This uninterrupted glass panel spans the entire fascia, enabling occupants to immerse themselves in their favourite artworks while ensconced within the sumptuous cabin. In line with the nautical inspiration, the Gallery features an embroidered design reminiscent of yacht rigging.
Bespoke is the epitome of Rolls-Royce, permeating every aspect of their commissioned creations, from exquisite motor cars to luxurious accessories. At the Festival of Speed, Rolls-Royce proudly presents a striking Bespoke luggage collection in Navy and White, perfectly complementing the overarching nautical theme.
Rolls-Royce Cullinan: The Intersection of Art and Modernity
Rolls-Royce’s team of highly skilled artisans, designers, and engineers have found inspiration in the vibrant world of pop art. A movement that emerged and flourished in the 1950s and 1960s in America and Britain, pop art serves as the foundation for a distinctive expression of the Cullinan at this year’s Festival of Speed.
Presented in Gunmetal with a double Coachline and Coachline Motif finished in Phoenix Red and Serenity Green, this unique interpretation of the world’s most coveted SUV encapsulates the essence of contemporary luxury. The inclusion of striking Red brake callipers harmoniously complements the Phoenix Red Coachline, lending an air of confidence to the exterior.
While the Gunmetal exterior and bold Coachline establish the tone for this bespoke creation, it is the interior that truly steals the show. A captivating geometric Red pattern pervades throughout the cabin, resulting in a dynamic and audacious aesthetic that showcases the extensive capabilities of Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke division.
Rolls-Royce Ghost: Unleashing the Art of Sublime Elegance
The Rolls-Royce Ghost, the latest embodiment of the marque’s extraordinary success, makes a stylish statement at this year’s Festival of Speed. Dressed in Iced Arctic White, this motor car exudes an air of luxury, style, and grace, seamlessly exemplifying the marque’s commitment to exceptional craftsmanship. The Ghost’s exterior surface centre proudly demonstrates the brand’s expertise and versatility. Inside, the Black and Iceland Moss interior appointments create a vibrant and captivating atmosphere, while the Mandarin seat piping adds a delightful touch of colour.
Salamanca Blue plays a prominent role in the Festival of Speed lineup as well, with a Rolls-Royce Ghost selected as the Course Car. Additionally, a Dark Emerald Cullinan assumes the crucial role of Safety Car, further accentuating the Rolls-Royce presence at this prestigious event.
In conclusion, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ presence at the Festival of Speed is an extraordinary showcase of the brand’s commitment to excellence and the enduring allure of their bespoke creations. With Spectre spearheading the electric revolution, Phantom embodying the pinnacle of luxury, Cullinan embracing contemporary art, and Ghost epitomizing sublime elegance, Rolls-Royce continues to redefine the boundaries of automotive magnificence.
