There’s one for each of the emirates.
Luxury cars are a dime a dozen in this part of the world – but even the most discerning automobile enthusiast would find it hard not to be impressed by these lavish rides.
Rolls-Royce has revealed a set of seven bespoke cars, each one inspired by a different landmark or tradition in the UAE.
Commissioned by Abu Dhabi Motors, the “Wisdom Collection” is intended as a tribute to the late President and founding father of the UAE, Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
Possibly the most stunning car in the collection is the Phantom Saloon, designed to resemble the iconic white Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
The interior features the mosque’s beautiful floral design, which took 800 hours and almost 400,000 stitches to complete – the most complex embroidery project ever undertaken by Rolls-Royce.
Then there’s a Phantom Coupe, inspired by the Qasr Al Hosn fortress – the oldest stone building in Abu Dhabi. The car is supposed to represent the “simple elegance” of the structure.
There’s also a Phantom Drophead Coupe, inspired by the vibrant colours of the desert rose.
The Ghost Sedan represents ancient trade routes, with sandy hues and a camel motif.
And the smooth and shiny Dawn takes inspiration from the UAE’s pearling tradition.
This Wraith is inspired by the falcon – a “symbol of strength, authority and power”.
While this Wraith represents the spectacular Sheikh Zayed Bridge in Abu Dhabi, and how it is illuminated at night.
Which one is your favourite?
