A rare Rolls-Royce, one of only 20 examples of the recently unveilved Phantom Tempus Collection, has arrived today in Dubai from Rolls-Royce’s global centre of luxury manufacturing excellence in West Sussex, England. Taking inspiration from time, astronomical phenomena and the most accurate clock in the universe, the pulsar star, the Colleciton Car radiates an irresistible charm and becomes a timeless masterpiece against the city skyline of Dubai.
Finished in Kairos Blue, the exterior of Phantom Tempus evokes the depths of the cosmos. Indeed, inside, the client will experience a grand cosmic display of stars as the iconic Starlight Headliner is rendered as a centrepiece creating the unique and beautiful Pulsar Headliner, consisting of fibre-optic lighting and intricate Bespoke embroidery. The motif continues onto the doors with a swirling, twisting pattern of stars created by hundreds of illuminated perforations with additional perforations in contrasting leather, adding a greater depth and detail to the effect.
“Time truly holds no power over the Phantom Tempus Collection. This is a motor car for those who shape the world as they seek their own place in the universe.The Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Dubai team is delighted at the delivery of this masterpiece, here in the charming city of Dubai, for our client.” said Mamdouh Khairallah, General Manager, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Dubai, AGMC.
The illusion of time standing still is captured by the masterful ‘Frozen Flow of Time’ Gallery, housed in the fascia from which the clock is deliberately omitted to signfy owner’s freedom from time and its limitations. A single billet of aluminium is milled to form 100 individually contoured columns, representing the 100-million-year period of a rotational spin of a pulsar star. Each column is black-anodised and hand-polished to reflect the light. As the eye travels along it, the whole structure, though entirely solid, appears to ripple and flex.
A description of the Gallery can be found on an engraved plaque in the glove compartment, together with a quotation from Albert Einstein, The distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.
