Michael Fux is many things. An entrepreneur, a philanthropist, a savvy car collector, an American success story. But, to Rolls-Royce, he is the man who created a color.
Fux has spent his entire life as an automotive enthusiast. In their Summer/Fall 2011 issue, NJ Inspire Magazine described how the man recognized for philanthropic endeavors by the House of Representatives first found his love of cars on his grandfather’s lap in Cuba. Before emigrating to the United States in 1958, at the age of five, he would “help” steer the wheel while his grandfather, a taxi driver, drove.
His family landed in Newark, New Jersey, in a one-bedroom apartment in a seven-story walk up. But Fux knew he wanted a different life, and through decades of work and genius levels of ingenuity, he’s helped create the Michael Fux Family Center at the Miami Children’s hospital and become the owner of more than 100 rare and exotic cars.
During the past week, that collection grew by two more, each bearing the Rolls-Royce name and a color unique to Fux: Jade Pearl.
“The Bespoke colour [sic] scheme was personally commissioned by Mr Fux,” describes the caption from a gallery posted to Facebook by the marque Aug. 12. “Finished in an Aqeuus Green with a Cornish White roof, Fux’s Jade Pearl Wraith is truly unique.”

In the gallery, we can see his new Bespoke Rolls-Royce Jade Pearl, another stunning creation from the marque’s customization program. The exterior’s colors continue to the interior, where lambswool floormats meet the plate engraved with Mr. Fux’s name.
At Pebble Beach, Fux also accepted delivery of a Rolls-Royce Bespoke Phantom EWB featuring the same stunning jade interior as the Wraith. You can see both in the gallery below, and the unveiling of the Phantom EWB in the video above.
