The world is no stranger to all sorts of everyday object having that extra sparkle with diamond decorations. This week paraded in front of our very eyes was the new Rolls Royce Celestial Phantom. Launched at the Dubai motor show Rolls Royce has seemingly departed from their usual understated elegance and gone all out with the “bling”.
The new phantom is diamond encrusted. Inside. The designers have liberally sprinkled 446 diamonds in the cabin of the car. Some in the privacy divide, some in the door capping and some in the centre console. Added to the ceiling showing a night sky one can understand the models name, Celestial.
Cars and diamonds are not strangers. At the same motor show this week in Dubai the first Arab super car, by Lebanon W motors, costing $3. 5m has diamond encrusted headlights and in 2008 Saudi Prince Alwaleed customised his Mercedes with encrusted diamond decorations. The pimp job cost $48m and he charged $1000 just to touch it.
