Rolls-Royce Unveils Three Bespoke Phantom Drophead Coupes Specially Created For The Olympics

Did you watch the last night’s closing ceremony of the 2012 London Olympic Games? If you did you probably noticed three bespoke Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupes, that were created specially for the event.

All three vehicles featured an English White exterior colour, newly-designed badges for the first time in the company’s 108 year history and self-centering wheel caps that featured words “London 2012” surrounded by the Olympic motto “Citius, Altius, Fortius” (Faster, Higher, Stronger).

Finally all three vehicles had commemorative door sill plates and a special emblem on the steering wheel.

“I am delighted that Rolls-Royce Motor Cars was invited to take part in celebrating the success of the Games and it is appropriate that we should recognise this occasion with a fitting tribute,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive. “These unique cars were hand built at the Home of Rolls?Royce at Goodwood by our dedicated and passionate workforce and the whole team can take great pride in their part in making history for our company.”
