2011 Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupé Bijan Edition

Almost a year ago at the 2010 LA Auto Show, world-renowned designer Bijan Pakzad struck a partnership with British luxury brand Rolls-Royce to design a limited number of rare Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupes that would be appropriately called the ‘Bijan Edition.’

Unfortunately, the designer was not able to see his work come to life after his unexpected death last April due to a heart attack. Despite his passing on, the Rolls-Royce project continued on and recently, the first of these special edition models was unveiled in front of Bijan’s luxury boutique in Beverly Hills, California.

The luxury Phantom Drophead Coupe, in so many words, has Bijan’s imprint all over it. From the unmistakable bright yellow color of the luxury sedan all the way to the touches of white diamonds embedded in the wood veneer dashboard and the set of crystal glasses tucked in a picnic set in the trunk, the Rolls-Royce Phantom Bijan Edition speaks to the taste and lifestyle of the late, great designer.

While its easy to get mesmerized by the car, it’s also worth noting that this particular Phantom also carries a 6.75-liter V12 engine that produces in excess of 450 horsepower. According to Bijan executives, the plan for the ultra rare Phantom Bijan Edition is to have at least a dozen of them built with each set to be priced from anywhere between $850,000 all the way up to $1.6 million.

Knowing the man and his impeccable taste in cars, there’s a good chance that Bijan Pakzad, wherever he is, is looking down on this car with that million-dollar smile on his face.

I like all features of this car. The style of this car is really great and I want to have this some of a day. I don’t know if this is a jeep or hummer or anything. hehehe

Very impressive car. The door of the car is unique and I like the style. This car is great. I’m sure this car is heavy weight than the other car. Luxury cars like this is one of the best car for me.

I noticed that this coupe was too pricey, and I don’t know why it had that price! I mean. This car is not really so impressive and doesn’t have any fabulous features but sure the engine performance of it seems so good.
