Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe for 2012 Summer Olympic Games

The 2012 Olympic Games came to an end and Rolls-Royce managed to present three new bespoke Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupes especially built for this occasion, at the closing ceremony. All vehicles had an English White exterior with self-centering wheel caps on them with the Olympic Motto: Citius, Altius, Fortius, which means faster, higher, stronger. The new badges replaced the traditional double R-R for the first time in many years, since 1904 to be more precise, when the company started its activity.

The design specialists also offered a special emblem on the steering wheel and added commemorative door sill plates. When presented, each convertible descended its roof gracefully.  The entire development team can be proud of their achievements, as these cars are unique ones built by hand at Goodwood, making history for the company. The drivers of the cars were specially-trained Rolls-Royce employees. Beside the badges, the carmaker offered unique tread plates identifying each car as One of Three. This actually makes them the most collectable Rolls-Royce Bespoke items ever produced.

The Rolls-Royce Motor Cars felt special with the invitation of participation at the Olympic Games and recognized this opportunity to bring a fitting tribute. This is what Chief Executive, Torten Muller-Otvos said. He continued with expressing his gratitude towards all the team, making the cars part of history. These are all the information available on the new and unique limited editions Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupes.
