Rolls-Royce arrived at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show with the emphasis that exclusivity still runs in their veins. The British marquee showcased the Phantom and Phantom Extended Wheelbase Tranquillity Edition, which are limited to just 25 units, all of which are sold out already.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom Tranquillity is a statement piece representative of the visionaries who push beyond accepted limits, says the carmaker. The ultra-rare Tranquillity edition gets beautifully curated objects and inspirations from worlds beyond earthly bounds, according to RR.
On the dashboard of the Tranquillity are X-Ray coded aperture masks which were used on the British Skylark space rocket. The radiation passes over and through the perforated pattern, thus creating a coded shadow on the layers beneath it. The properties of the original radiation sources were mathematically reconstructed from this shadow and rendered in highly reflective stainless steel plating coated with 24-karat gold and space grade aluminium.
Moreover, the volume controller is made of actual meteorite material. This is an authentic Muonionalusta meteorite, which fell to earth in Kiruna, Sweden in 1906. And it is complemented by a detailed engraving of the location and date of its discovery. Apart from that, the cabin also gets Arctic White and Shelby Grey leather with unique veneer and black gloss finish at all the right places, all of which is inspired by the light and dark sides of the moon.
In both the Light and Dark variants, the bespoke audio speaker Frets are finished in yellow gold. These unique elements are inspired by the historic NASA 'Voyager' satellites that carried into space two gold records with sounds and images that portrayed the diversity of life and culture on earth for any intelligent extra-terrestrial life that might find them.
Besides the bespoke Phantom, the British carmaker also showcased Black Badge versions of the Ghost and Wraith at the Geneva stage. They were joined by the two more bespoke models – the Cullinan Genève 2019 and Dawn Genève 2019.
