Rolls-Royce Builds Phantom Drophead Coupe for 60th Year of Pebble Beach

Rolls-Royce may be known for creating extravagant one-off examples (falcons’ heads on a Phantom, anyone?), but a model designed for the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is subdued, tasteful elegance. The Phantom Drophead Coupe in question commemorates 60 years of the event, but if you want a shot at owning it, you’re out of luck.

Chief designer Ian Cameron was on hand at the Pebble Beach Concours to show off the marque’s latest unique model. The exterior and interior enhancements on this particular Phantom Drophead Coupe are meant to reflect on the history of Pebble Beach. In the tradition of Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke customization program, the colors and finishes are unique to the vehicle.

Outside, the deep blue paint, reminiscent of the Monterey Peninsula’s Stillwater Cove, is appropriately called Stillwater Blue, and paired with a deep blue softtop. Inside, the cockpit is outfitted in Creme Light leather, and complemented by Santos Pallisander rosewood trim.

Other vehicle details take cues from the nautical theme of the event as well. Concours-themed logos and emblems are peppered throughout the cabin. The roof tonneau and various surfaces are constructed of teak, and a Rolls-Royce set of requisite champagne glasses joins an underfloor cool box for the ultimate picnicking package.

Interested? Unfortunately, the one-off was snatched up within minutes of its unveiling at the show, but Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke program ensures that other customization opportunities are readily available.
