The golden age of the Raja is being resurrected by Rolls Royce, and its physical manifestation has appeared in Dubai. The bespoke Rolls-Royce Maharaja Phantom Drophead Coupe was created exclusively for customers in Dubai, according to a Nov. 13 press release from the English luxury car manufacturer, reinforcing the importance of that market.
A term bestowed only upon the High Kings of India, “maharaja” calls back to the beginning of Rolls-Royce’s relationship with the Indian monarchies, almost 100 years ago, when a 5-decade long relationship began. Over 50 years, “the Maharajas purchased over 840 unique Rolls-Royce motor cars,” according to the release.
The Maharaja Phantom features a striking Carrara White paint job with an emerald green peacock emblem completing the coachline. The national bird of India, the peacock emblem appears again throughout, from the headrests, to the feather pattern in Seashell stitching, to the bespoke Maharaja Peacock clock.
“Our customers demand the best, the extraordinary and the unique. Such attributes are the hallmarks of every Rolls-Royce motor car, and are particularly evident in the Rolls-Royce Maharaja Phantom Drophead Coupé,” said Osman Abdelmoneim, General Manager at AGMC, in the press release.
With this new take on their pinnacle model, Rolls-Royce has managed to push the bar defining ultra-luxury to another level. It’s no question why the marque has remained steadfast in its desirability for so long. Be sure to stay with us for more news from Rolls-Royce and other manufacturers.
