OpenRoad unveils the most expensive Rolls-Royce to ever come to Canada
VANCOUVER, January 7, 2015 - The most expensive Rolls-Royce ever to come to Canada was unveiled recently at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Vancouver. The Phantom Pinnacle Travel Edition, unveiled to select guests and media, is priced at $829,000 — before tax. It is the only unit available in Vancouver, brought to the city by OpenRoad Auto Group, and one of only 15 in the world and one of two in North America.
The supercar was inspired by luxury cross-continental train travel, with exquisite detailing, as well as the latest in-car technology. The coachline was hand-painted and finished with a gold theme and the interior features lambswool floor mats.
“The average Rolls-Royce makes around 450 man hours to make. The bespoke nature of this car puts it close to 900 man hours to complete. Really, it’s all about customization in terms of the leather, the colours, the paint and particularly, the woodwork,” says OpenRoad Auto Group CEO, Christian Chia.
The Phantom Pinnacle Travel Edition also features 230 individual pieces of wood veneer that were laser-cut and assembled by hand to look like a train zooming across a landscape.
