They are all horse and car lovers, and rich enough to pay the price of this one of a kind Roller. The special vehicle features a matte black exterior and mugello red and black interior.
The Mirage horse’s head features throughout the vehicle’s design, with a silver inlay in the passenger display panel set against elm cluster veneer and embroidery on the front and rear headrests. It also gets a silver rope inlay in the door capping and on the front Fascia, while the Glove box is embroidered with the personalised message: “Mirage motif – one of one.”
About the horse:
The Arabian Horse on which the car has been based, Mirage, was purchased from the Sebaa tribe by HRH King Faisal of Iraq in the early years of the 20th century, and was later owned by Lady Wentworth in England and Roger Selby in the United States. Mirage was a champion in both countries, winning the Richmond Royal Show in 1926 and becoming American Champion at the National Arabian Show in Nashville in 1934. Used as a stud throughout the 20’s and 30’s, Mirage’s bloodline is still present in many modern day Arabian Horses.
