This brief clip offers a peek inside a special edition Rolls Royce. The Rolls Royce Phantom Aviator pays homage to the field of…you guessed it—aviation. It was meticulously developed to honor Charles Rolls, who was himself a pioneer in the field. Rolls was the first person from the UK to perish in a plane crash, so the Aviator model is very special to the history of the brand.
Up close and personal with the Aviator interior
The interior of the Phantom Aviator reflects distinctive cockpit cues of an aircraft. To separate it from the standard Phantom, Art Deco lighting also illuminates it inside. Aviation styling cues include aircraft-grade steel, pure leather flooring rimmed with aluminum, in-door umbrellas and a picnic boot. Commemorative badging appears inside. All of this for an additional $60,000 above the standard Phantom’s price of $440,000.
Fun fact: Charles Rolls flew extensively with the Wright brothers
Watch the short clip above for an up-close view of the cockpit of the Aviator edition. The cool nods to the aviation industry tack on a cool $60,000 to the already half-million dollar MSRP!
The marquee only produced 35 examples of the special edition Aviator. A very unique feature, aside from the authentic aviation gauges used inside, is the starry-night ceiling. The ceiling offers enough light for reading, and also dims for dozing. The 35 examples will likely change hands very rarely as time passes, and be preserved and protected from the elements. It will be a rare occasion to see one of these cars on the streets!
