Rolls-Royce has unveiled the Phantom Drophead Coupe Waterspeed Collection, which is the latest model from its Bespoke Collection. The limited-edition Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe pays homage to the Rolls-Royce-powered Bluebird K3 boat that set a world-record speed in 1937.
“This very special motor car serves to pay a perfect homage to my grandfather’s remarkable acts of British daring and endeavour,” said Donald Wales, grandson of Sir Malcolm Campbell. “The extraordinary attention-to-detail and commitment to engineering excellence so evident in these motor cars perfectly echoes the lengths my grandfather and his colleagues went to in their pursuit of the waterspeed records.”
The limited-edition Phantom Drophead Coupe Waterspeed Collection is painted in ‘Maggiore Blue’ exterior paint, inspired by Bluebird’s famous color scheme. The color scheme also extends to the engine, which is painted in the same blue color. The Maggiore Blue exterior also carries over into the interior, which gets the same blue accents. Rolls-Royce is only going to produce 35 units.
