The rich turchese paint flows around the Phantom to represent the green-blue waters of the Arabian Gulf. The headrests boast embroidery; pearl veneers decorate the interior, and a Dhow sailboat motif determines the layout. All of this makes up the Rolls-Royce Ghawwass Phantom Coupé in a way that defines the celebration of collecting pearls from the Bahrain pearl banks.
Ghawwass is Arabic for “diver,” and the entire car is meant to represent the traditional techniques of collecting pearls. The vehicle, however, being not only a Rolls-Royce but also a pearl filled work of art, will likely go for a price that even the most powerful will wince at.
One must ask themselves if it’s worth it. But when you do, think of this: the artistic emotion of the vehicle brings your feet to the sands of the Arabian Gulf from anywhere. The perfected craftsmanship crossed with the royalty and spiritual flow of the Arabian Gulf makes the true value of this Phantom priceless. So much so that the actual price of the vehicle has yet to be determined.
The car is another Rolls-Royce one-off, another display of what true attention to detail in mechanical craftsmanship can do. The reach of the company’s custom vehicle abilities goes further and further with every step. With the last custom vehicle being the Celestial Phantom, we can only imagine what prestigious work of art will appear next to represent the “RR” logo.
