Retired Businessman Commissions Wild Custom Rolls-Royce
A businessman has invested many hundreds of thousands of dollars in what he aspires will be the “wackiest Rolls-Royce Phantom ever.” Robert Allan, 62, of Marbella, Spain and other locations is a retired businessman with very expensive tastes in automobiles. His Rolls-Royce Phantom, which has been described as the most modified Phantom in the world, has just arrived at his Marbella estate after weeks of what can only be described as a most unusual makeover. Mr. Allan commissioned London-based car dealer SuperVettura and designer Pablo Rabiella to customize the limo, and all we can say is it doesn’t look anything like the San Francisco Rolls-Royce limo rentals in our fleet.
Allan had the Rolls stripped down to the metal and had his limo painted in 18 coats of purple, white and yellow paint. The interior is decorated with 24 cowhides and plenty of solid gold fixtures. Mr. Allan has owned other custom luxury vehicles in the past but said he wanted to push the envelope a bit with this project. He certainly accomplished that as he reportedly invested more than $375,000 in the makeover and, by all accounts, is very pleased with the result.
You know, it’s not our place to criticize what anyone does with his or her Rolls-Royce. It’s their money. They earned it and can do what they wish with it. If they want to strip one of the world’s finest luxury automobiles and make it unique, more power to them. That said, we have a different approach to the Bay Area antique Rolls-Royce limo rentals in our fleet. Each has been lovingly restored with as much original equipment as possible, and you wont find a cow’s hide or solid gold fixture in any of them. However, what you will find is a very comfortable ride, a timeless elegance and a very affordable rate.
