The largest Rolls Royce order in history has been placed and taken its place in headlines across the globe. Gambling guru Stephen Hung (giggle) has ordered 30 Rolls Royce Phantoms for the hefty sum of $20 million dollars. Hung ordered the fleet of Phantoms to serve as transportation for customers indulging in his Hong Kong casino. It would seem that a simple taxi is no longer suitable for the extreme onslaught of new wealth in China.
Hung is well known in Hong Kong for being flashy with his wealth, a habit that seems befitting of the gambling industry. If you want to attract the high-rollers, you likely need to be a bit of a baller yourself. The fleet of Rolls Royce Phantoms will transport guests to and from the new casino, and any other place they desire for the right price. The casino is due to open in 2016, leaving us to wonder if all 30 cars will be completed and delivered in just over two years.
The new casino will be located in the Chinese territory of Macau, where gambling revenue topped out at around 45 billion last year. To put that number into perspective, it is greater than that of Las Vegas. That must be why Louis XIII Holdings had no qualms about paying for the rather shocking and lavish order of 30 Rolls Royce Phantoms—they know they will be compensated with interest.
Fun fact: Two of the 30 Phantoms will be adorned with gold plating both inside and out. They will be used for the most distinguished guests and also be the most expensive Rolls Royce Phantoms created to date.
