Three Rolls-Royce motor cars took centre stage at the Closing Ceremony on Sunday night. Sporting newly-designed badges for the first time in the company’s 108 year history, they featured perhaps the most collectable (and unobtainable) Rolls-Royce Bespoke items ever produced. The Phantom Series II Drophead Coupés conveyed three coveted British artistes during the event, revealing each as the convertible roof gracefully descended.
Rolls-Royce celebrated the success of the Olympic games at the closing ceremony on Sunday evening when three Rolls-Royce’s sported newly-designed badges for the first time in the company’s 108-year history. The new badges, designed by the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Design Team, replaced the traditional double R-R for the first time since the company started in 1904.
The new grille badge features the iconic Spirit of Ecstasy with the Union Flag replacing the traditional flowing gown. The steering wheel center includes a traditional laurel wreath and torch, and the self-righting wheel centres feature the words ‘London 2012’ surrounded by the Olympic motto, ‘Citius, Altius, Fortius’ (‘Faster, Higher, Stronger’). The badges are complemented by unique tread plates identifying each car as ‘One of Three’, creating perhaps the most collectable (and unobtainable) Rolls-Royce Bespoke items ever produced.
