Paris Motor Show LIVE: Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe Aviator Collection limited edition model

One of Rolls-Royce’s exhibits at the Paris show is the Phantom Coupe Aviator Collection, an exclusive model of which only 35 units will be built.

The collection celebrates the spirit of human endeavour that drove a very British hero, Charles Stewart Rolls, and subsequently led Rolls-Royce to simultaneous world speed records on land, air and in the water.

The first in the collection of 35 Phantom Coupé Aviator Collection models is finished in Aviator Grey and features a contrasting matt bonnet, window and grille surround while inside, the interplay of wood and metal hint strongly at a cockpit theme. A Thommen, aviation-grade clock with blood orange needle tips is embedded in the metal foil upper fascia, complemented by matt black dials for power reserve, speedometer and fuel gauges. The lower fascia is veneered in mahogany and features Sapele contrast. Polished stainless steel veneer ‘onlays’ with bullet-shaped ends are designed to match floor mat fixings.

The leather-lined glove compartment includes an embossed Charles Rolls quote following his first flight with the Wright Brothers in 1908: “The power of flight is as a fresh gift from the Creator, the greatest treasure yet given to man.” A centre console chrome plaque describes Rolls – only the second man in Britain to hold a pilot’s licence – simply as Pioneer Aviator, below a representation of his sweeping signature.
