What You Probably Didn’t Know About The Rolls-Royce Celestial Phantom
In 2013, Rolls-Royce added The Celestial Phantom to the Phantom family. The only motor car of its kind, the Celestial Phantom celebrates the beauty of Rolls-Royce craftsmanship.
The two-tone exterior of this edition is painted in a shade of dark blue and carries the basic features of the Phantom to give it it’s amazing look, like the 2:1 wheel-to-height ratio, the coach doors, the curve of the roof-line and sweep of the lower body-line that suggests movement even when the car is still. The car includes the 6.75-litre V12 engine used in the previous Phantoms.
“Phantom expresses a sense of unrivalled status from every angle.”
-Giles Taylor, Director of Design.

The colour, along with the ‘Dusk’ hue of the leather inside, suggests the image of the night sky. So check this out: Fine glass particles have been integrated into the paint to achieve a strong sense of depth and light. It has an interior illuminated to resemble the night sky with no less than 446 real diamonds set into the doors, privacy divider, and center console.The pattern was created to replicate the exact placement of the stars at Goodwood at midnight on January 1, 2003, the time that the first Phantom rolled off the production line. Crazy, right? Yep, you don’t even have to step outside to see stars…just step into the Celestial Phantom.
Here you can see part of the cool way that Rolls-Royce manufacturers get these stars into The Celestial Phantom…watch it if you want to see something awesome:
