I don’t understand why anyone would want to change a Rolls Royce Phantom, but those people are out there and they are doing it. Germany’s own Mutec is the latest to put the Phantom under the knife adding an extra 43-inches and converting the normal Rolls into a stretch limousine. They also added an extra set of seats for face-to-face seating. [via] See more pictures of the limo.

Rolls Royce has released an exclusive special edition Phantom. The Phantom Tungsten has adopted a number of special features from the upcoming Phantom Coupe. The Tungsten features a special ‘Xirallic’ Darkest Tungsten paint finish and a brushed aluminum bonnet as well as a pair of visible chrome-plated, stainless steel exhaust pipes. The interior features Smoke Grey leather seats with contrasting Navy Blue hide, the dashboard is micro engraved metal with high-gloss, straight-grained East Indian Rosewood veneer. The interior also features a starlight headliner which uses eight hundred fibre-optic lights to create the impression of a star-filled night sky. We do not know the price of this extremely rare car, but since you probably can’t afford it anyways just gawk at the pictures. [via] Read the rest of this entry »

Some of the weirdest one-off-luxury-vehicles have been coming out of Dilip Chhabria Designs. In this case it looks like they made a cross between a Rolls-Royce RR Silver Spirit saloon, a Lamborghini, and a 350Z. There is not much information about this car but take a look at the pictures.

Rolls Royce Celebrated its 100th birthday with a Special Edition Phantom; it is a modern spin on their best known model. The first Silver Ghost concept appeared in 1906 and hit production in 1907 with a six-cylinder 40/50 model engine. The car was well known for its supreme engineering and stealthy engine. The new “Silver” Phantom’s accents are in solid silver, including the retractable hood ornament, key fobs and fountain pen. Only 25 will be made making it almost as valuable as the original from 1907. [via]
