In what is seen as the largest fleet ever ordered, entrepreneur Stephen Hung, owner of ‘The 13’ in Macau, commissioned 30 units of Rolls-Royce Phantom’s to be used as livery. ‘The 13’ Hotel is slated to open in early 2017.
The specially designed luxury cars have been produced at the company’s Goodwood facility in England, like every other RR car. Of the entire lot, two are extra special, and finished in Gold colour.
The Bespoke Phantom’s have specially formulated ‘Stephen Red’ exterior paint developed as per requirements of Mr. Hung, accentuated by hand painted gold twin coach lines with ‘The 13’ motif. Stephen Red color is also seen on the exclusively designed 21” wheels. Exteriors also sport a gold flaked red and gold grille, Spirit of Ecstasy hood accents and gold encrusted badges.
Interiors are equally exclusive and designed with a checkered pattern and specially crafted clocks by master jeweler Graff. The 28 custom made limousines will be used for hotel guests while the two gilded offerings will be reserved for the hotel’s most elite clients.
At 20 ft in length and over 4 ft in width, the Rolls Royce Phantom can accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 5.8 seconds. These 30 offerings have a total cost estimated at US$20 million (INR 140 crore) and is the largest single commission in Rolls-Royce history.
‘The 13’ is a US$ 1 billion hotel set to open its doors in Macau in early 2017. It promises an exclusive lifestyle experience and will sport 200 multilevel suites each having its private elevator. The suits span an area of 2,000 sq ft while 31 of these are even larger. The 13 owes its design to New York architect Peter Marino, Louise Vuitton, Christian Dior and Chanel and is designed on the basis of both 17th century French Renaissance and Baroque décor.
