Golden Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe lands in Abu Dhabi

Not content with the boundless luxury exuded by the standard Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, the sole dealer of the bespoke cars in Abu Dhabi has taken delivery of a unique version decked in a gold metallic paint scheme and finished off with a gold-plated Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament. Almost certainly built to the exacting specifications of one of the country’s numerous wealthy individuals, the Drophead Coupe is also fitted with a stainless steel bonnet, teak decking and twin coachlines.

The Middle East has been a major driver of the ‘Rolls-Royce Bespoke Program’ and currently claims the highest volume of requests for the custom cars. The program is a special service that allows customers to change virtually every tactile facet of the car, whether it is a thicker steering wheel or a completely customized cabin.

Working in a closed off area of the Goodwood assembly line, the Bespoke team even go so far as to develop their own paints, materials and mechanical modifications.

Surprisingly, the owner has decided to leave the wheels of the Drophead Coupe unchanged. The mechanical package has also been left untouched, meaning power comes from the familiar 6.75L V12 engine. Peak output stands at 453hp (338kW) and 530lb-ft (720Nm) of torque.

And the price? If you have to ask...
