Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe Waterspeed Collection

After a quick teaser at the top of 2014, the luxury auto makers at Rolls-Royce have officially pulled the curtain back on the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe Waterspeed Collection.

The vehicle pays homage to Sir Malcolm Campbell’s water speed record set all the way back in 1937, and can be seen with many of the features throughout. Seeing that the water-speed record setting Bluebird K3 was powered by a Rolls motor on Lake Maggiore, it only seemed right that the Rolls’ color scheme be named ‘Maggiore Blue.’ The luxury model sees a brushed-steel deck replacing the wood found on prior Phantom Dropheads, along with Abachi wood accents, two-tone steering wheel, and a hand-embroidered glovebox detailing Campbell’s many achievements throughout his lifetime. The massive coupe is still powered by the same 6.75-liter V12, pumping out 453 horsepower and 531 lb-ft of torque through the eight speed automatic transmission. Expect this model to be even more expensive than a typical Rolls, considering the additions alongside the fact that there will be only 35 examples produced.
