Art Deco has a presence in architecture, interior design, fashion and film, so why not luxury autos? An automotive favorite has presented their interpretation of the influence, in the form of an Art Deco inspired Rolls Royce series! The glamor of the era blends perfectly with the elegance of Rolls Royce, don’t you agree?
The Art Deco inspired Rolls Royce lineup made its debut at the Paris Motor Show
Rolls Royce knocked socks off with not just one example, but an entire Art Deco series, including the following models:
• Bespoke Rolls Royce Phantom Saloon
• Rolls Royce Ghost
• Rolls Phantom Drophead coupe
Chief Executive Rolls Royce Motor Cars Torsten Müller-Ötvös explains the concept:
“In Paris we have elegantly captured the essence of one of the great periods in 20th century design. These Art Deco-inspired motor cars stand as a testament to the breadth of the Rolls-Royce bespoke offering, reinforcing the marque’s position as the world’s leading manufacturer of luxury goods.”
Phantom Saloon: This example uses classic black and white for a crisp and artful finish. Stainless steel inlays and a geometric coachline pattern finish off the effect. Customers can choose from the following exteriors: Black, powder blue, arctic white and Arabian blue.
Phantom Drophead coupe (The favorite): The drophead drops serious swag with a fresh powder blue coat finished with sophisticated mother of pearl inlays. The interior is also dusted in powder blue…which leaves one to picture a driver in a matchy blue 3-piece suit. Under the hood lurks a 6.75-liter V12 pumping out 453 horses capable of sprinting to 60 in 5.7 seconds with a top speed of 149 miles per hour. Not too shabby.
Ghost: The Ghost features a 2-tone approach in silver and robust cobalt blue. The cabin boasts a rich wood veneer in both the front and back and an Olympia-inspired motif on the treads and headrests.
The series celebrates this influential era for art and pays homage to the 1925 Paris Exhibition, or Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes, that first gave the art movement its name.
