Rolls-Royce Spent 500 Hours Building A Bespoke Hawaiian Koa-Clad Phantom

Though Rolls-Royce’s stock offerings are undeniably some of the finest and most well-appointed luxury cars on Earth, the British marque’s bespoke vehicles offer another level of exclusivity with made-to-order items built for the world’s most discerning customers. One such customer is Jack Boyd Smith Jr, a wealthy car collector with a stable that includes more than 60 noteworthy rides. And despite the collection already boasting four Rolls-Royce specimens, JBS has now added another Rolls to his fleet with a bespoke luxury tourer dubbed “The Koa Phantom.”

Though JPS and his world-class vehicle collection reside in Elkhart, Indiana, the billionaire has previously spent an extensive amount of time in Hawaii, and this ultimately served as a major piece of inspiration for the bespoke Phantom, leading to its Koa-clad interior. The car’s custom dark blue livery was color-matched a 1934 Packard Twelve Coupe owned by JBS’s family when he was a kid, too. The custom car also includes a one-of-a-kind handmade Koa Wood Picnic Hamper that was hand-crafted over the course of 500 hours — just one small aspect of the full three years that it took to complete the fully bespoke Phantom.
