Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe Gets the Maharaja Treatment

The Rolls-Royce Bespoke program has already worked its magic on the Ghost and Phantom, and this time around the Phantom Drophead Coupe gets its fair share of exclusive touches.

Unveiled earlier this week was the Rolls-Royce Maharaja Phantom Drophead Coupe, which is inspired by the Golden Age of India’s kings over 100 years ago. Back then, India’s royalty had a strong affinity for bespoke cars from Rolls-Royce , reportedly amassing over 800 one-of-a-kind vehicles from the British automaker. The relationship lasted over 50 years.

The Maharaja Phantom DHC pays homage to that relationship in a number of ways. The exterior, painted in Carrara White paint, features front fenders accented with Emerald green peacock emblems, India’s national bird. The peacock theme is used elsewhere in the car, including peacock feather-patterned accents for the leather door arm rests and wood inlays. The automaker’s Bespoke program has shown off its impressive wood marquetry in the past, and it does it again here with the passenger-side dashboard trim showcasing a peacock.

Much of the interior features a cream tone, but deep green and blue accents are used for the steering wheel, carpet, and the leather used for the windshield frame. The Rolls-Royce Majaraja Phantom DHC is truly a one-of-a-kind Bespoke model ( unlike the previous Bespoke Phantom Metropolitan ), claimed by a customer in Dubai.
