The Carbon Veil was turned into reality by sculptor Alastair Gibson.
Rolls-Royce is recognised for its one-of-a-kind designs. The Carbon Veil is the company’s most recent release, and it hails from Dubai. The Rolls-Royce Phantom has subtle style on the outside, but the interior is where the real magic happens.
The unique Phantom, which was unveiled by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Dubai, comes with a Carbon Veil Gallery, which was developed by the automaker and brought to life by artist and sculptor Alastair Gibson.
Gibson is a former Formula One mechanic who now creates highly coveted works of art that can be found in museums and galleries all around the world.
The Carbon Veil is built differently than the Gallery, which is intrinsic to the Phantom and allows owners to display an original work of art or design. The Gallery in this bespoke construction is entirely composed of carbon fibre, as the name suggests.
However, this isn’t your typical carbon fibre treatment for autos. When the lightweight material is utilised on autos, it usually has four to five layers. At least 150 sheets of carbon fibre were penetrated with resin and crushed to make the Phantom Carbon Veil’s solid billet.
The angular and stealthy contours of the Carbon Veil Gallery were inspired by the 118 WallyPower, a luxury motor yacht that can attain a top speed of 70 miles per hour, according to Rolls-Royce (110 kilometres per hour).
The gunmetal appearance of the customised Phantom Carbon Veil is highlighted by a vibrant tangerine orange on the coachline and waftline. Carbon fibre is also used in the Spirit of Ecstasy. The dark tones and light leather, as well as the color-keyed rotary controls and leather details, provide a striking contrast within.
The Phantom Carbon Veil’s price hasn’t been revealed by Rolls-Royce, but we’re sure affluent consumers won’t need to know.
