A Bespoke Rolls-Royce the way to go
As the Rolls-Royce success story continues, nearly every Rolls-Royce Phantom and almost three in four Rolls-Royce Ghosts sold around the world are commissioned with Bespoke personalisation.
This constant customer demand for the best automotive tailoring service has helped drive the marque towards three consecutive record sales years.
In the first quarter of 2013, nearly every Phantom and Ghost model commissioned in Europe and the Middle East was specified with Bespoke design. In North America, the world’s largest Rolls-Royce market, 95% of Phantom models have been built with a personalised Bespoke element.
Bespoke Growth in Numbers:
|Europe inc UK||55%||72%||89%||96%||93%|
|Asia (inc China)||50%||75%||79%||80%||83%|
|Total (all markets)||50%||75%||84%||90%||90%|
|Europe inc UK||77%||87%||96%|
|Asia (inc China)||30%||48%||48%|
|Total (all markets)||56%||70%||70%|
Bespoke growth has led to significant expansion at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England. The Assembly Hall was extended by 2,500m2 in 2012 and the number of jobs for highly skilled Bespoke designers, engineers and craftspeople doubled.
Rolls-Royce Bespoke gives customers the scope to create cars as unique as their own fingerprints. Starting with subtle additions like initials embroidered into head-rests and hand-crafted marquetry, customers may also start from a blank canvas with scope to create a one-of-a-kind automotive masterpiece.
Of course, no request is left unexplored, with more elaborate commissions including sourcing a wood-set from a tree on a customer’s estate and the development of exterior paints and interior leathers perfectly colour matched to a favorite lipstick. Whilst customers seeking to complement their lifestyles can commission hand-crafted picnic sets, cigar humidors and champagne coolers.
In addition to one-of-a-kind customer commissions, Rolls-Royce Bespoke designers and craftspeople also turn their attentions to limited edition collection cars.
