‘The bigger, the better’ surely applies to China. SUV’s and extended-wheelbase models are very popular in the booming country. Not only did we see the golden Dartz being unveiled at the Chengdu Motor Show, the same show also featured a stretched Rolls-Royce Phantom.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom was modified by Chinese company Star Customs. Although the British marque offers a Phantom with extended wheelbase, the middle section of the luxury car was extended by four meters.
For a further enhancement of the cars appearance the Rolls-Royce was fitted with gold and silver. The grille of the car is made entirely of this valuable and highly sought-after precious bright yellow metal. The rims are also available in pure gold.
The price for this ‘size does matter’ Rolls? 15 Million yuan, which equals $ 2.36 million dollar or € 1.75 million euros. A real bargain compared to the for the $8 million gold plated Rolls-Royce Phantom.
