Rolls-Royce Phantom Orchid Is A One-Off Masterpiece For Singapore
Rolls-Royce is synonymous with bespoke creations. This year, the latest to have come out of Goodwood is called the Phantom Orchid – a one-off masterpiece made especially for Singapore. This is the second vehicle commissioned for the first-world Asian country, following the SG50 Bespoke Rolls-Royce Ghost that celebrated the country’s 50th Anniversary.
Known as the Lion City, Singapore’s national flower is a hybrid orchid known as the Vanda ‘Miss Joaquim.’ For Rolls-Royce, the orchid was selected as an inspirational theme for resilience, beauty, and strength.
Rolls-Royce chose the long-wheelbase Phantom as the blank canvas for this one-off creation. The company said that it took Bespoke Collective two years to create the Phantom Orchid through a collaborative effort of designers, craftspeople, and artisans.
“Our concept envisaged a balanced yet progressive design, which echoes the values of the Singapore region. The orchid is seen in many facets of Asian life, a reminder that the resilient adapt and thrive regardless of the evolving environment,” said Michael Bryden, Lead Designer, Rolls-Royce Bespoke. Bryden was also the lead designer of the SG50 Bespoke Ghost.
