Following its aviation-themed models first seen at Pebble Beach, Rolls-Royce displayed a number of cars inspired by the Art Deco era.

These included a bespoke Phantom Series II sedan, Phantom Series II Drophead Coupé and Ghost models that were unveiled at the Paris Auto Show 2012 this week. The cars are a homage to the 1925 Paris Exhibition or “Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes” that gave the Art Deco movement its name.

The Phantom Sedan’s black and arctic white interior hints at the visual language of the movement, while a suite of Art Deco-inspired interior detailing points to the creativity, skill and attention to detail employed by Rolls-Royce craftspeople.

Hand-fashioned stainless steel inlays in telephone drawer, door cappings and rear picnic table backs subtly evoke the decorative style of the period. An echo of the rich heritage of the marque also lies in the Art Deco-style geometric coachline pattern – a design conceived and used by Rolls-Royce in a show booth at Olympia, London in the early 20th century.

The elegant simplicity of Ghost is presented in two-tone, Jubilee Silver atop Cobalto Blue, while the interior features intricate marquetry in front and rear. A Phantom Series II Drophead Coupé furnished in resplendent mother of pearl onlays gracefully completes the show line-up.

An exclusive collection of Phantom Series II and Ghost cars, inspired by the Art Deco cars at Paris, will be made available to Rolls-Royce clients.
