The ‘Limelight’ moniker given to Rolls Royce’s latest collection is no accident. It is intended for a select group of buyers who spend their lives in the public eye and on the world stage. The limelight name is inspired by the actual limelight effect discovered by Sir Goldsworthy Gurney in the 1820s. His lighting concept was an invention that revolutionised illumination in the theatres of London’s Covent Garden, providing spotlight on the leading actors.
Rolls Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös told BMW Blog, “In creating the Rolls-Royce Phantom Limelight Collection, our designers have delivered authentic luxury by thinking deeply about the lifestyles of the powerful people who operate in the public eye and move swiftly from engagement to engagement as part of their daily life.”
“The result is a beautiful, discreet motor car in which those for whom the world is waiting can prepare, relax and arrive in the finest luxury and style.”
There will only be 25 examples from the Phantom Limelight Collection on offer with enquiries now being taken worldwide.
