The car is finished in unique Maggiore Blue paint, named after the lake where the 1937 record was set and inspired by the Bluebird’s color scheme. Nine layers of Maggiore Blue paint adorn the body panels, and for the first time on a Rolls Royce, paint is also applied to the engine, making for a particularly waterspeedy underhood experience.
Inside, Rolls-Royce has taken the opportunity to add further Maggiore Blue details, using accents to create a distinctive two-tone steering wheel and dashboard. Windchill Grey leather is used throughout the interior, and borders the brushed steel decking which replaces the tradition teak finish.
The Phantom Drophead Coupé Waterspeed Collection features 6.75-liter V12, which produces 453 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque. It comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The Phantom Drophead Coupé Waterspeed Collection will be unveiled to the public at the 2014 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa D’Este, after which buyers will fight over the 35 examples.
