Rolls-Royce has long been acknowledged as one of the world’s premier luxury car purveyors, with such lavish offerings as the Phantom, Ghost, Wraith and Dawn linked to its name. To help commemorate the prestige of the Rolls-Royce name, the high-end label will present its “The Great Eight Phantoms” Exhibition at Bonhams in London with a special reveal aimed to steal the show.

As reported by SCMP, a trio of rides that flaunt respective monarchical ties will be added to the imposing lineup. Queen Elizabeth’s Phantom VI State Limousine is the first confirmed automobile to grace the cast. Finished in a smooth “Royal Claret” and “Black Livery” finish, the car’s artistic focal point lies in its “Royal Mascot” of St. George slaying a dragon symbol replacing the iconic Spirit of Ecstasy emblem. The Aga Khan’s Rolls-Royce Phantom IV is another vehicle set to make its way into the illustrious lineup. Sporting a deep green tonal scheme, the ride features a Sedanca de Ville-styled body and highlights an opulent “Connolly Red’ leather interior cabin. Last, but certainly not least, we have the First Goodwood Phantom VII. Once known as the “last great adventure in automotive history,” this specific rendition has been credited with spearheading Rolls-Royce’s renaissance back in 2003.

“The Great Eight Phantoms” Exhibition will take place at Bonhams, London from July 29 to August 2.
