Journalists from the world’s leading luxury media will enjoy a rare
encounter with the new Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II at a spectacular
event on the magnificent French Riviera, beginning today, 6 June 2022.
Phantom Rendezvous, the Global Press Drive for the new Phantom,
takes place at the Maybourne Riviera Hotel in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin,
situated on the spectacular Mediterranean coast and overlooking
Monaco. Invited guests from around the world will have the opportunity
to drive, and be driven in, the newest incarnation of the marque’s
pinnacle product, officially unveiled in mid-May.
The guests will also be able to view two magnificent Bespoke
Phantoms, exhibited on the lawn of the Maybourne Riviera hotel.
Phantom Platino, named after the silver-white finish of the coveted
precious metal, platinum, echoes the marque’s formative days with
front seats finished in fine Rolls-Royce leather, and those in the
rear upholstered in luxurious fabric. The Great British Phantom, a
playful nod to the marque’s more patriotic clients, is finished in
striking Magma Red and features a Bespoke artwork in the Gallery,
inspired by the Union Flag.
Rolls-Royce Phantom occupies an unrivalled position at the very
apex of the luxury world. In line with clients’ expressed wishes,
Phantom Series II incorporates only light-touch visual and aesthetic
enhancements. By way of example, a subtle geometric change to the
Pantheon Grille makes the ‘RR’ Badge of Honour and Spirit of Ecstasy
figurine more prominent when viewed from the front. The grille itself
is now illuminated, while the headlights are graced with intricate
laser-cut bezel starlights – adding further surprise and delight to
Phantom’s night-time presence.
The French Riviera has been associated with Rolls-Royce since
the first part of the 20th Century, when the Côte d’Azur
established itself as the favoured haunt of actors, artists, musicians
and other wealthy luminaries of the Belle Epoque. There is also a
potent historical resonance for the company: in 1912, Sir Henry Royce
built a villa, La Mimosa, in the village of Le Canadel, where he
subsequently spent every winter until his death in 1933.
