Rolls-Royce has created a one-off red Phantom that will be auctioned off to benefit the global AIDS charity (RED). The Bespoke Phantom will officially be unveiled at a gala event at the One Thousand Museum in Miami, tomorrow, December 4. Sotheby’s and RM Sotheby’s launch an exclusive online auction which will run until December 13, 2019 on sothebys.com.
The successful bidder will then be able to collaborate with contemporary artist, Mickalene Thomas, who will create a custom wrap for the exterior based on an original work of art inspired by the Red Phantom.
The special Phantom’s exterior features a Bespoke finish of Crystal over Magma Red. Inside the handcrafted Bespoke leather interior in Brilliant Arctic White is offset by bright Mugello Red highlights. Lastly a single-piece glass fascia extends across the instrument panel.
“Every member of our team is deeply inspired by this world-class commission and equally by the importance of the cause that it was created to support – (RED)’s fight to end AIDS,” stated Martin Fritsches, President and CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Americas.
