Rolls-Royce has introduced a limited edition, highly-personalized version of the Phantom. Billed as the ‘Limelight’ Collection, this uber-luxurious, behemoth sized saloon will be produced in a limited production run of 25 units for markets worldwide. According to Rolls-Royce, the Phantom Limelight Edition is aimed at ‘select group of people who spend their lives in the public eye and on the world stage.’

Built by Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke department, the Phantom Limelight comes with its own set of unique bells and whistles. The Limelight Edition features the “Phantom Suite” which brings a unique set of personalized rear door panniers and a new luxury seating configuration. Rolls-Royce says the Phantom Limelight will be the “ultimate travelling companion”.

The unique personalised rear door panniers Rolls-Royce is boasting about are infact designed based on gender preferences. The Ladies' and the Gentleman's panniers can also be personalised to suit what particular personal possessions are required for the occasion. For example, in standard configuration, the Concealed Fragrance Holder for three individual fragrances is located in the top left pocket of the Ladies' pannier, whereas, the Gentlemen's pannier holds watches for different occasions, or tastes.

With this newly added bespoke edition, Rolls-Royce has even taken the trouble to come up with an optimum and relaxing seat position for the car’s occupants. In order to ensure maximum comfort and safety, the engineers and ergonomists worked closely with medical professionals to establish a perfect sitting posture. This is done by moving the seat back reclines by a recommended 27 degrees; lowering down the body using a new calf rest that raises electrically by 68 degrees to support the calf, whilst a foot rest emerges out of the floor to raise the feet up to 30 degrees.

Rolls Royce states that its team of designers worked primarily to meet three main objectives in this project- ‘Prepare, Relax and Arrive’. Meaning, whilst travelling between ‘major’ events, this limited edition Phantom will help owners to prepare, relax and arrive for their big moment in the ‘limelight’.

On the inside, the cabin is offered between a choice of two color schemes: a light contrast Seashell with Navy Blue Contrast Leather and Seashell tone-on-tone stitching, as well as a dark contrast scheme offering Navy Blue with Seashell Contrast Leather and Navy tone-on-tone stitching. Further, a two-veneer finish, Piano Seashell finish on the door cappings and smoked chestnut inlays complete the interior colour scheme, and are also claimed to be unique for this model.

Rolls-Royce has not revealed the prices of the Phantom Limelight as yet, but customers looking for this bespoke piece of sumptuous motoring can order it ‘immediately’, the company says. Deliveries should start by end of 2015.
