Rolls-Royce has dropped by the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este to pay homage to its parent and show tutor BMW, showcasing for the public the Phantom Drophead Coupe Zenith Collection.
We already know the Phantom Coupe and Phantom Drophead Coupe Zenith Collection have been snatched by their prospective buyers and seeing one in public will be a rare occasion. The Zenith is the final installment of the current generation Phantom Series, with just 50 units being carefully crafted and sold to high-end customers that were personally invited to acquire one by the company. The Zenith Collection Phantoms show that details are the panache of the elegant Spirit of Ecstasy brand, for example having a larger fridge for two champagne bottles instead of one. All units also have eight RR-branded glasses and a new picnic table. There’s even a glass shelf for the split-tailgate and the cabin has been treated to a bespoke starlight headliner created for the special edition.
The 50 lucky owners of the very expensive Zenith Collection Phantoms will get a choice of classic paints featured over the time by the brand, and some of them harken back as far as the Phantom II (1929-1936). Inside the cabin there’s a brushed steel speedometer and new leather upholstery, as well as the mandatory special plaques denoting the build number. And as far as we know, these are the last Phantom Coupe and Drophead Coupe as the new generation will not feature these body styles anymore.
