When the 8th gen Rolls-Royce Phantom debuted in 2017, one of the key highlights was ‘The Gallery’—which is a pretty good real estate on the dashboard where the owners could showcase their creativity with the help of artists. Recently we saw the Phantom Orchid commissioned by a Singapore client. And the latest example is this Phantom with Carbon Veil Gallery, commissioned by Rolls-Royce’s Dubai retailer.
On the exterior, the car is finished in a gunmetal (grey), contrasted with iced finish gunmetal bonnet and the coachline in a mandarin orange. On the bonnet, the Spirit of Ecstasy is crafted from carbon fibre.
But as mentioned, this Phantom is all about that Gallery inside. Speaking of which, the Carbon Veil apparently took two years to create, and is made of carbon fibre, of course. Created in collaboration with artist and sculptor Alastair Gibson, the Carbon Veil is said to be made of 150 carbon fibre layers (yes, you read that right). And, notice the contrast orange touches on the inside as well.
The Phantom is powered by a massive 6.75-litre V12 twin-turbo petrol engine with 420 kW (571 metric hp) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque, paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission (satellite aided).
