After the limited-edition 'Inspired' series for the Rolls-Royce Wraith, to celebrate Rolls-Royce’s association with movies, haute-couture, and music, the Spirit of Ecstasy now has bestowed the Phantom with a new variant. Badged 'Nautica’, it has drawn inspiration from high-end yachts.
The highlight of Rolls-Royce’s bespoke programme is how dramatically the character and feel of an automobile can be altered, just by adding in a few details and design elements. The Phantom Nautica features a two-tone paint scheme; Orchid White for the doors and fenders, and Arabian Blue on the bonnet, the panoramic roof, and the boot-lid. Besides the custom paint on the Nautica, the car features a double pinstripe below the shoulder line with anchor-shaped insignias on the front fenders, adding to the seafaring theme. The 10-spoke wheels come with Arabian Blue inserts as well.
Inside, the dashboard gets Tudor Oak veneer dashboard, along with white instrument dials, and Forest Fall white leather with Navy Blue piping to match the exteriors. Also tucked away in the drawer of the dashboard is a vintage style custom-made compass.
The bespoke Phantom’s underpinnings remain unchanged. It will be powered by Rolls-Royce’s 6.75-litre V12 engine rated at 453bhp and 73.4kgm of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
