The perfect weekend getaway car.
The Masterpiece London is an international collectors fair that brings together some of the rarest and most expensive pieces of art and design. As part of the event, Rolls Royce will introduce their one-off bespoke Drophead Coupé that was designed as the perfect weekend getaway car complete with a one-off Asprey jewelry box and individual luggage set.
The new one-off Rolls Royce Drophead Coupé will feature a number of exclusive design details. The entire exterior flaunts a new Mazarine Blue paint finish that was inspired by the Mazarine Blue butterfly found in continental Europe. The Spirit of Ecstasy is also exclusive and is engraved with an inscription that marks the centenary of the icon. With the top down, passengers are greeted with yacht-inspired teak decking with mother-of-pearl inlays throughout cross-banded Santos Palissander wood veneers.
Inside is the wealth of luxury that we’ve all come to cherish from Rolls Royce. Natural grain leather finishes most of the interior in a Seashell with Navy Blue contrast color scheme. The headrests have been embroidered with “R-R” logos, while the entry sills feature a “Masterpiece London” nameplate. Mother-of-pearl white instrument dials, rotary controls, and clock complete the interior.
But the one-off Rolls Royce isn’t just a unique luxury package. Inside the glove box is an Asprey jewelry case that took two days to fabricate. The case uses 15 separate pieces of the softest grade-one cut suede. Inside the case are sections for cufflinks, rings, and a detachable earring holder for clip or stud-style earrings. An elegant embossed Silver foil Asprey stamp completes the exclusive case.
Hiding inside the picnic trunk is another bespoke feature of the one-off Rolls Royce Drophead Coupé – a new luggage set that was designed in Goodwood and is comprised of four different deep Navy Blue cases. Hides were selected for their firmness and grain structure then tanned in pits for four months. During the process, a bark, wood, and berry mixture was added to give the hides their pigment and produce a delightful aroma.
The one-off Rolls Royce Drophead Coupé will be displayed at the 2011 Masterpiece London fair on Friday June 29th. The fair will run from Saturday June 30th to Friday, July 5th.
