There aren’t many brands that are capable of matching Rolls-Royce’s sterling reputation within the luxury market, but 184-year-old French designer label Hermès is certainly one of them. So when the two brands linked up to create the bespoke Rolls-Royce x Hermès Phantom Oribe, it’s unsurprising that it’s one of the most exquisite luxury cars we’ve ever seen.
Commissioned by Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa, the Phantom Oribe is envisioned as a “land jet” to complement the entrepreneur’s private aircraft. The car has a two-tone MZ Oribe Green and cream exterior finish that was inspired by Maezawa’s collection of ancient Japanese ceramics and is only seen in one other place: Maezawa’s plane. The Phantom Oribe’s interior features a number of handmade touches from Hermès, including Enea Green leather upholstery and ‘Toile H’ canvas, and a Gallery installation in the style of the brand’s horse motif by the late Pierre Péron that’s hand-painted on Open Pore Royal Walnut. The bulk of the Phantom Oribe’s components were handcrafted by bespoke specialists from Rolls-Royce and Hermès at the brands’ West Sussex and Paris workshops, respectively. The price Maezawa paid for this stunning commission has not been released, but we’re guessing it costs just a smidge more than the standard $455,000 Phantom.
