Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe Aviator Collection Revealed

Rolls-Royce has unveiled the limited Phantom Coupe Aviator Collection at the Pebble Beach Quail in the U.S. The Phantom Coupe Aviator Collection is inspired by Charles Stewart Rolls and the legend of the Schneider Trophy-winning Supermarine S6B, that was powered by a Rolls-Royce R Type engine.

Just 35 examples will be built, with each vehicle finished in Aviator Grey and a contrasting matt bonnet, window and grille surrounds. There is also a lower fascia in veneered mahogany. Other Aviator Collection highlights include a wood and metal theme inside, aviation-grade clock, matt black dials for power reserve, speedometer and fuel gauges.

“Our founding forefather Charles Stewart Rolls was a pioneer who pushed the boundaries of motoring and aviation to the limit,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Rolls-Royce CEO. “With our exclusive Phantom Coupé Aviator Collection we celebrate this great British hero, presenting a car which hints at experiments in early flight married to the best engineering, modern design and exquisitely crafted materials. The collection takes Rolls-Royce Bespoke to new levels of subtle, yet beautiful detailing.”
