A TRIBUTE TO BRITISH MOTORSPORT: The Phantom coupe Chicane combines luxury we've come to expect from Rolls-Royce and racing details such as a chequered flag motif. Image: ROLLS-ROYCE

The Rolls-Royce Phantom coupe Chicane made its world debut at the 2013 Dubai motor show. The model was commissioned as a tribute to the Goodwood Motor Circuit.

Rolls-Royce Dubai brand manager Mohammed El-Arishy comments: “I wanted to create a motor car that captures the unique atmosphere and history of the Goodwood Motor Circuit. The home of Rolls-Royce’s connection to such an important centre of British motoring heritage is something that fascinates my customers.


“The experience of working with Rolls-Royce’s world-class designers to create the beautifully executed Chicane Phantom coupe was exhilarating. The creativity, vision, skill and attention-to-detail employed in the crafting of these one-off motor cars is unsurpassed in the super-luxury world.”

Inside, the traditional wood-finish is replaced with carbon-fibre and coloured wheels match the paint.

Hand-crafted details throughout allude to the car’s motorsport theme such as its chequered-flag motif. The elegant homage is completed with a metal plaque expressing the car’s name and Goodwood’s famous track layout located discreetly in the glove compartment.
