Post Hotelier Stephen Hung orders 30 Bespoke Rolls-Royce Phantoms

Not so many years ago the world was wowed when Hong Kong-based Peninsula Hotel added a fleet of 14 Peninsula Green Rolls-Royce Phantoms to their fleet and today that record has been trumped by an upcoming Macau hotel, Louis XIII.

The group's honcho, Stehen Hung has placed an order for 30 Bespoke Extended Wheel-Base Phantoms making this the largest fleet sale the company has ever undertaken. While 28 of the cars will be of the highest specifications, the remaining two will be THE most expensive Phantoms Rolls have ever created and will be reserved for guests of the highest order.

The cars are due to be delivered in the first half of 2016 circa the launch of the hotel itself and matches the hotel's exterior color tones.

Rolls is yet to divulge any figures or intricate details on the customization, but they have sure enough released some early renderings of the cars.

Why does it look weird @Latheesh ?
The guy looks like a very flamboyant businessman
And the key box is awe inspiring

THanks for the post @ Scorcher.

The first few pics of the car looked way over the top. Overdone and gawdy. I was like what was the guy thinking. Then I saw the last 2 pics and realised it's not so bad.

That must be a purely red themed hotel. The car and hotel are red in colour.
The key box is simply awesome and well thought of.

What the heck.. Even his hair is dyed Red to go with the Hotel and Car. Exteriors of the car look sad. Interiors look better.
Awesome key box though. Imagine the Gateman yelling to the Valet, "Woh waala gaadi nikalna, woh wale mehmaan ke liye".. (Take that car for that customer). Lol...

Imagine having categories for guests when it comes to a Rolls... it would be like segregating billionaires in rich-class-billionaire, middle-class-billionaire and lower-class-billionaire! Would love to check out the hotel and see the cars parked together at some point in the future.

Wow. Now that's called style. 30 RRs. Will all of them be red? Would love to see all of them parked together at the hotel in Macau in the future ...

But thats just wishful thinking. I probably will settle for a picture of the RRs parked together.

Bespoke catering is the business to be in nowadays. There are virtually no boundaries to the whims of the rich and the famous.

A Cherry Red Rolls with checkered seats surely has to be one of a kind in this world. Make that the only 30 of their kind. Uber-luxury brands will continue to thrive as long as there are billionaires willing to spend top money on customization!

Love the key box and that massive solitaire-like structure of the hotel! Very very classy.

What a shame, the cars will get outdated in an year or two. Considering the radical changes that RR supposedly is bringing, it will matter.

But then again, having a look at the wealth these people possess, I am sure they will upgrade the old ones pretty soon.

Gosh!! The Car's exterior is Colourful. Then interiors have even more colours. Further the Hotel has its share of Colour and Gloss. And then....
If any colours were left, the Owner himself wore them! Hair - is that a cut out of Asian Paints catalogue?? Sum it all and your colour pallet is richer than that of MS-Paint!

Post their business meet, I'm sure the RR Guys would have had their share of laughs

A pretty gaudy shade for a Rolls!!
Think the 'peninsula' green was better suited for the dignified Rolls.
