Here’s how folk customised their Rolls-Royces in 2020

By topgear, 15 January 2021

The team of engineers, designers and craftspeople that personalise newly purchased Rolls-Royces are known as the ‘Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective’. Fancy name, right? Anyway, whilst most of us wore new holes in our sofa cushions during 2020, the Bespoke Collective lot were really rather busy.

Rolls says that almost every car it built last year was specially tailored in some way by the team, with a huge increase in personalisation over 2019. Impressive.

Fancy seeing what those rich folks spent their money on? Click through this gallery…

Dawn Silver Bullet

The Dawn Silver Bullet got unique ultra-metallic Brewster Silver Paint, as well as an aero cowling to turn it into a two-seat droptop. The plan was to build 50 examples.

Dusk in Tokyo

The Dusk in Tokyo collection was applied to the Phantom, Wraith, Dawn and Cullinan and featured white paint, black leather interiors and rose gold accents.

Phantom ‘Iridescent Opulence’

What a name. This Phantom was created in partnership with Swiss materials specialist Nature Squared and included over 3,000 sustainably sourced iridescent tail feathers for the interior.

Steed Phantom Extended

Exactly what it says on the tin – a LWB Phantom for a Chinese client big on horses.

Neon Nights Colour Trilogy

Surely you haven’t forgotten these? Rolls unveiled the Black Badge Neon Nights collection in November. Not for the faint hearted, but you can find out more at these blue words.

Wraith Inspired by Earth

Taking design cues from the whole Solar System, this commission featured bonnet artwork that was an airbrushing of the Middle East as seen from space. Some serious talent over at Rolls.

Wraith Kryptos Collection

With 50 examples built, the Kryptos Collection had a coded message hidden in its bespoke features for customers to try and figure out. Wonder if anyone’s cracked it yet?

Mahlangu Phantom

A South African client commissioned this fantastic Phantom last year, which used the Rolls Gallery to display a work of art by the celebrated South African artist, Dr Esther Mahlangu.

Sportive Collection

Another collection, this time of two Black Badge Dawns and nine Black Badge Wraiths with plenty of carbon fibre for the United Arab Emirates.

Cullinan Spirit of Russia Collection

Four individual Bespoke Cullinan commissions dedicated to legendary Russian mountains: ‘Elbrus’, ‘Krasnaya Polyana’, ‘Golden Mountains’ and ‘Klyuchevskaya Sopka’.

Arctic White and Hotspur Red Phantom

Commissioned by a Texan Rolls-Royce collector, this Phantom featured Hotspur Red on every surface of its interior. Crikey.
