In case you were wondering, the DHC stands for the Drophead Coupe (also misread dropdead gorgeous coupe) – and this bespoke version is called the Beverly Hills Edition.
We’re not sure if the owner requested the semi-bright orange hue because he’s a peach aficionado or he simply envisions this to be the sunset’s hue over the hills of California, but in earnest it doesn’t really matter – if you had the money you could cook up any crazy idea to justify your whims. The end is coming for the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, but of course the Bespoke division is still very much willing to cash in on anyone’s crazy ideas. The latest has been presented this past weekend at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance – the Beverly Hills Edition was actually commissioned by the dealer in that particular affluent area of the Los Angeles metropolis.
The unique Phantom Drophead Coupe has been carefully finished in Orange Metallic, described as being “as vivid as the sun setting on the Pacific Coast Highway” that the car is “made for cruising down.” The peachy hue is contrasted elegantly by the silver finish on the upper body. Meanwhile inside the cabin there are more executive thoughts due to the darker theme – black upholstery, black carpets and piano black trim, with just a few touches of Mandarin highlights here and there to enlighten the atmosphere. The Phantom range is being decommissioned this year and in 2018 we’ll be getting a next generation – but sadly the Phantom Coupe and Drophead Coupe will not be replaced.
