Rolls-Royce reveals pictures of two one-off Phantoms for the Middle East

Rolls-Royce has revealed pictures of two one-off Phantom models developed in co-ordination with its Middle East dealers: the Phantom Coupé Shaheen and the Phantom Baynunah.

The cars form part of a collection of one-off cars which have been designed by the Middle East dealers to showcase and sell.

See the pics of the Phantom Coupé Shaheen and the Phantom Baynunah

The four-door Phantom Baynunah’s interior and exterior styling features shades of beige and brown and has a tan ever-flex roof. It has been inspired by the landscape of the Baynunah area in the western region of Abu Dhabi famous for its sand dunes.

The inlay and marquetry are “inspired by the traditional, vibrant colours of an Arabian camel harness” according to Rolls-Royce and are made at the luxury car maker's headquarters in Goodwood, using individually cut hand-assembled pieces of coloured veneer.

The Phantom Coupé Shaheen has been inspired by the region’s famous falcon, the Shaheen, and has a marquise-white exterior with a red-and-seashell leather interior featuring falcon motifs embroidered into the head-rests.

No prices for the one-off models have been released. The base price in the Middle East is $381,000 (£245,000) for the standard Phantom, and $408,000 (£262,000) for the standard Phantom Coupé, not including delivery or VAT.

Rolls-Royce has eight dealerships across the Middle East in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Doha, Jeddah, Kuwait City, Manama, Muscat and Riyadh.See all the latest Rolls-Royce reviews, news and video

Both will be built according to demand and pricing will depend on the options the individual customer chooses.

I'm just wondering how long it'll be before we see Goodwood launching the Phantom SuperStrech Arabia model, featuring a jacuzzi, a harem section, and a circular bed beneath a mirrored roof.

Can't say that I approve of the original Phantom, let alone what I see as these increasingly ghastly derivatives.

So much prejudice.....if those special editions where exactly the same but aimed for the American market....im sure we will not hear those kind of comments..... i had no idea why people say these things about everything that is related to Arabs and Middle East....what a shame....

Surely one of the points to a Roller is having it made bespoke to your wishes. So a Special edition, made in limited numbers is actually less bespoke, so less desirable?

I guess its a sign of the times that even Rolls and Bentley are producing 'special editions' now. Good to see the old vinyl roof is still going strong....
