This 2008 LHD auto Rolls-Royce Phantom ‘Pearl’ edition is from the Bespoke Collection and is therefore a very rare, limited-edition model.
Chassis No: SCA1S68038UX01181.
The car’s odometer is showing just 206 kms.
In common with many vehicles from the vendor’s collection, the car comes with no history or service records.
A 2008 model year vehicle, it was bought new in 2007.
It was originally supplied with black exterior paint.
As you can see, it is now two-tone cream/pale yellow and dark yellow.
We were thinking custard and mustard. Both are yummy.
With the proviso that we haven’t tried to drive this vehicle and can therefore only comment on its cosmetic condition, we think this 2008 Rolls-Royce Phantom ‘Pearl’ edition is effectively a brand-new car with only delivery kilometres to show for its 15 years of life.
