In 2008, Rolls-Royce announced a new
exclusively for Phantom buyers in the Middle East. One of these was the Phantom Mirage
, inspired by a legendary white Arabian stallion bearing the same name.
At the time, the Rolls-Royce Phantom Mirage was available in the buyer’s choice of Arctic White or Diamond Black paint, and came fitted with 21-inch forged wheels sporting carbon fiber accents. Inside, carbon fiber was the material of choice for accent trim, and a running horse emblem was stitched into the headrests.
That bespoke package option inspired the car seen here, a one-off creation conceptualized by Kadhim Al Helli, the Rolls-Royce brand manager at Abu Dhabi Motors. This Phantom Mirage is a coupe, sprayed in matte black and trimmed with red accent stripes. Front fenders wear a stylized stallion head logo, which carries over to the inside as well.
The interior features red leather upholstery trimmed in black, with headrests sporting the embroidered stallion logo. The horse’s head appears on the the dash as well, and the car’s door sills remind you that it’s a Mirage motif Phantom, complete with a golden horseshoe on the plaque.
We suppose it’s all tasteful enough, if you truly love horses. While this particular example is a one-of-a-kind creation, Rolls-Royce
is in the business of keeping customers happy. If you want a version of this Phantom Mirage to park in your own stable, we’re sure something can be worked out.
