It bears distinguished Rolls-Royce hallmark designs but with a bold twist of a striking fastback silhouette that, supposedly, exude elegance and power. The sweeping roofline and wide rear tracks is said to evoke an image of an athlete poised at the starting blocks. However, it does maintain Rolls-Royce’s attributes of luxury, refinement and hand-craftsmanship. The two-tone paint combination, finished in Diamond Black and Madeira Red on the unveiled unit, complements the sweeping fastback design giving it a unique character. It rides on a set of 21-inch five-spoke wheels that feature self-righting RR monogram centres matched in body colour.
