They say, inspiration can strike at any time and any place. If you've got the money to dream up an elaborate custom Rolls-Royce, why not? That's just what happened to Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Dubai Brand Manager, Mohammed EL-Arishy who was dining at the Goodwood Hotel, right next to the home of Rolls-Royce.

"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 center of British motoring heritage is something that fascinates my customers," said Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Dubai Brand Manager, Mohammed EL-Arishy. "The experience of working with Rolls-Royce's world-class designers to create the beautifully executed Chicane Phantom Coupé 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."

The result is a Rolls that harkens back to a rich Goodwood history with special designs cues and materials. Starting in the interior, the traditional wood finish is taken over by carbon fiber, a contemporary theme that also continues on the exterior. There is also a checkered flag motif stitched into the seats - this pattern subtly found on other parts of the car too.

The exterior sees more contemporary finishes with the hood and windshield surround finished in a matte black, which compliments the Gunmetal paint color. The wheels are also finished in a matching color to the paint finish, which is the claimed first time this has been used on a modern Rolls.

To finish off the look, a metal plaque with the cars name and Goodwood's track layout is located in the glove compartment.

"Customers often task us with designing cars themed around a particularly passion or interest. The customer leads the creative process, working in collaboration with us to create a highly personal, one-off masterpiece. As Bespoke designers we take great satisfaction in turning these dreams into reality," said Gavin Hartley, Bespoke Design Manager.
