Dig up the past to know that 'the loudest thing inside a Rolls-Royce is the ticking of the clock'. After six decades of this recognition, the new Rolls-Royce Phantom Tranquility pumps in with new vigour. While the Serenity Phantom took its inspiration from the idyllic gardens of Japan, this Phantom Tranquility delivers the message of a different kind of silence - that of outer space. Here's the car’s picture gallery.
Be it the pinnacle of luxury or exclusiveness, the Tranquility has every reason to be called so. Even the platform underpinning the car is called 'Architecture of Luxury'.
This Phantom Tranquility is a tribute to outer space and our (human) efforts and attempts to reach it. Only 25 units of this special edition model will be made hinting at its exclusivity.
Be it serenity or tranquility, Rolls-Royce has managed to portray its meaning correctly every time. And as they say, it is 'to celebrate the feeling of euphoric tranquillity one achieves within the car'.
Speaking of the exterior, this Phantom continues to get all bells and whistles from the eighth-gen Phantom. However, an integrated Parthenon grille is a noticeable tweak on this limited edition.
The interesting bits are within the cabin. Especially the centre dash panel's design, which is inspired by the X-Ray coded aperture masks used on the British Skylark space rocket.
This distinctive perforated pattern is mathematically reconstructed from the coded shadow and rendered in highly reflective stainless steel, 24-karat gold plating and space grade aluminium.
What's more, the music system's volume controller features particles from a meteorite. Which one you may ask? Well, the Muonionalusta meteorite, which fell on Earth in Kiruna, Sweden in 1906.
Of course, this same knob also gets a detailed engraving of the location and date of this meteorite’s discovery. Now you know what it means when one says "it's the rarest of things" or “exclusive”.
No word on the ultra-luxurious car’s pricing yet. Still, the carmaker says Tranquillity is an expression of Phantom’s standing as the rarest and most desired object in the luxury world. Get the point?
