The Louis XIII hotel orders 30 bespoke extended wheelbase Phantoms
The biggest ever fleet of Rolls-Royce Phantoms isn’t in some swanky hotel in Europe or North America. If you feel you’ve worked hard enough to deserve some tush time in the opulent cabin of a bespoke Phantom, all you’ll have to do is reserve a room at the soon-to-be opened Louis XIII hotel in Macau.
Hotelier and luxury entrepreneur Stephen Hung has purchased the largest Rolls-Royce Phantom fleet in the world. The order was for 30 bespoke extended wheelbase Phantoms, two of which are the most expensive Phantoms to ever be commissioned. Each of the units were worked on by a bespoke team from Rolls-Royce under strict supervision of Stephen Hung to make sure that each is as distinct from the other as possible. Bespoke clocks designed and created by Graff Luxury Watches were added to each unit.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars assisted in designing the parking and driveway that will house the fleet at Louis XIII and have trained their chauffeurs on the proper driving and handling of the Phantom.
To mark this momentous occasion, Rolls-Royce CEO, Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes, Louis XIII Chairman, Stephen Hung, the Board of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Louis XIII executives and a representative from Graff Diamonds were present at the contract signing ceremony at Rolls‑Royce at Goodwood in West Sussex, England.
“Macau is rapidly evolving into the luxury capital of the world and we are honoured to have the opportunity to add to Macau’s many distinctions, the world’s largest fleet of Rolls-Royce Phantoms, including the two most luxurious vehicles Rolls-Royce has ever built. Louis XIII and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars share the same philosophy: to deliver the perfect experience to the world’s most discerning customers,” said Louis XIII Chairman, Stephen Hung.
“We at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars are delighted and honoured that Mr Hung has commissioned Rolls-Royce to provide the largest single order of Phantoms in history. The Louis XIII fleet of Phantoms promises to be one of most impressive sights ever seen in Macau when they arrive at the Louis XIII hotel in 2016. Mr Hung’s commission reaffirms Phantom’s pinnacle position as the motor car of choice for those seeking to experience the finest luxury the world has to offer,” commented Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes, Chief Executive Officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
The Phantom fleet will chauffeur the guests of Louis XIII, located on the Cotai Strip in Macau, when it opens in the first half of 2016.
