Rolls-Royce Presents Phantom Coupé Aviator Collection

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars have unveiled the Phantom Coupé Aviator Collection, a new collection celebrating the spirit of human endeavor inspired by Charles Stewart Rolls and the legend of the Schneider Trophy-winning Supermarine S6B (powered by a Rolls-Royce R Type engine).

The first of 35 Phantom Coupé Aviator Collection models debuted today at the Pebble Beach Quail gathering in the U.S. The collection features a suite of exclusive design concepts, color combinations and new materials.

Rolls-Royce CEO, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, said, “Our founding forefather Charles Stewart Rolls was a pioneer who pushed the boundaries of motoring and aviation to the limit. With our exclusive Phantom Coupé Aviator Collection we celebrate this great British hero, presenting a car which hints at experiments in early flights married to the best engineering, modern design and exquisitely crafted materials. The collection takes Rolls-Royce Bespoke to new levels of subtle, yet beautiful detailing.”

The Phantom Coupé Aviator Collection features an Aviator Grey finish, a contrasting matt bonnet, window and grille surround and an interplay of wood and metal hinting at a cockpit theme on the inside. A leather-lined glove compartment includes an embossed Charles Rolls quote following his first flight with the Wright Brothers in 1908: “The power of flight as a fresh gift from the Creator, the greatest treasure yet given to man.” The center console features a chrome plaque saying, “Pioneer Aviator” in reference to Rolls, the second man in Britain to hold a pilot’s licence, below his sweeping signature.

Aviator Collection cars are fitted with leather floor mats and beautifully engineered polished aluminum cup holders. A Thommen, aviation-grade clock with orange needle tips is embedded in the metal foil upper fascia, complemented by matt black dials for power reserve, speedometer and fuel gages.
