For once it is not an Arab country or China that gets a one-off Roller. The one-off Rolls-Royce Phantom Sacred Fire is the first of its kind to be delivered in South East Asia, and it celebrates ancient Vietnamese culture.
If we cut right to the chase to see what sort of exclusive features Rolls-Royce Phantom Sacred Fire boasts, we have to start with the paint work which is a Madeira Red and Sunrise two-tone finish, representing the national symbol of fire in Vietnam. Only a Rolls-Royce can have such nuanced little details.
But the exterior is only a small part of the homage they paying to this wonderful culture. Rolls-Royce Phantom Sacred Fire also features the Dong Son Bronze Drum, an icon of Vietnamese culture and history, hand painted on the coachline and embroidered into the headrests in gold. That is really what set this car apart. Of course, the car doesn’t lack in luxury features either, what with a Tan and Cacao interior featuring a private rear partition configuration and an in-built drinks cabinet.
The Phantom, as you know, is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.75 litre V12 engine developing 531lb ft of torque (720Nm), paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. It goes from 0 to 60 in 5.7 seconds and onto an electronically limited top speed of 149mph.
