If you’ve not seen the Rolls-Royce Phantom Tempus Collection then scroll down and be amazed by the sheer beauty and presence of this opulent no-expense-spared luxury car.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom already holds the title of being the marques pinnacle limousine for those affluent enough to be chauffeured around town, but now it’s joined the exclusive and rare assemblage, The Phantom Tempus Collection.
Described as being inspired by time in relation to how it passes and the ability to make it seemingly pause or even stop, the stunning Tempus is limited to only 20 vehicles – all of which have already been allocated to some well-heeled clients.
Phantom Tempus Interior
The design of the Phantom Tempus Collection is astronomical in every way, from the magnetized rotating compact star, Pulsar, to the price which hasn’t been disclosed… In case you’re curious, the Pulsar connection becomes most apparent once you’ve embarked on your dream journey and gaze towards the ‘Bespoke Starlight Headliner’ that just happens to contain a rather heavenly fibre-optic lighting system and intricate Bespoke embroidery.
Following the impressive light show, bewilderment and beauty enter its next lunar phase as the ‘illusion of time standing still’ works its magic once again with a ‘Frozen Flow of Time’ Gallery. This unique artwork is housed in the fascia from which the clock has been deliberately omitted, reinforcing Chief Executive, Torsten Müller-Ötvös’s belief that “Rolls-Royce clients are not bound by time”.
Now, this is even more impressive… a single section of aluminium is machined to form 100 individually contoured columns, representing the 100-million-year period of a rotational spin of a pulsar star. Each column is black-anodised and hand-polished to reflect the light so as to create the optical illusion the solid structure is actually flexing in front of the eye.

The events of the past year have caused many people, not least our clients, to re-evaluate their sense of, and relationship with Time. At a moment in history when so much in life seems ephemeral, our patrons are seeking solace in the unique timelessness, longevity and permanence offered by a Rolls-Royce motor car.
It is thus the perfect moment for Phantom Tempus Collection – a magnificent incarnation of our pinnacle product, inspired by a mysterious celestial phenomenon and Time, which Albert Einstein, one of the greatest minds in human history, defined as a persistent illusion.
As we all know, Time never stands still, waits for no one. Hence, we manage it, guard it, account for it, weigh and measure it to its smallest fraction. With Phantom Tempus, we have created a space in which those strictures no longer apply – as illustrated by the deliberate absence of a clock. Rolls-Royce clients are not bound by Time; the outside world with all its pressures and demands are forgotten.
Phantom Tempus is a motor car for those who shape the world as they seek their own place in the universe. They understand that whatever our individual gifts, talents and opportunities, we’re all given time – and it is up to us to make the most of every moment

Phantom Tempus Exterior
Astronomy plays a major part once again as the sumptuous Kairos Blue overcoat incorporates jewel-like blue mica flakes, which glitter and glint as they catch the light and meant to represent the stars. As ever, the Spirit of Ecstasy, now in her 110th year, personalised with a unique date and location of particular significance to the client, sits proudly at the front of the car.
Last but by no means least, that all-important Rolls-Royce Champagne Chest… the Tempus Champagne Chest incorporates a distinctive element of the Collection.
A pulsar artwork is hand-painted onto the table which houses the thermal flasks we all need for chilling both champagne and caviar, below which, sits the perfectly appointed chest houses thermal flasks for chilling both champagne and caviar. There are also four hand-blown crystal champagne flutes arranged to evoke the cylinders of a V12 engine and a fine mother-of-pearl caviar spoon.
Don’t lie, you’re suitably impressed and even a smidge jealous…
