In the world of high-end luxury, very few automakers can match the esteem and reverence attached to the Rolls-Royce brand. So when you’re on the drawing board for a design study of a Rolls, the first thing that immediately pops in your head is how you can take the luxury to a whole new level.

Turkish designer, Timur Bozca, understands that and his latest study all but confirms the route to take when dressing up a Rolls-Royce Phantom: add as many expensive materials - like say, gold, for example - on the car to drive up the extravagance. The first thing he did was use the aforementioned gold material to cover some of the car’s exterior, including the grille, the rims, the outline on the lights, the badging, and even the plate casing.

Even the Phantom’s interior wasn’t spared from the luxury overload with plenty of gold to go around, showering the occupants with enough bling to make Mr. T blush with envy. Nothing looks better in gold than a dressed up Rolls-Royce Phantom, right?

The car is definitely a call to luxury, whether some people think it’s excessive or not. The only downside to having all this gold on your car is that it immediately becomes a target for those with kleptic hands.

David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Black and gold are always a perfect match. It makes this car look more luxurious. No need to add expensive accessories on this one.

Actually, there are a lot of customized luxurious cars that feature here. However, it’s better to be careful when driving this car for this would be the apple of the eye among thieves.

This car was really elegant, Having its golden bumper and wheel look’s highest class in fashion and very presidential in impact; you’ve thought that the owner is a multi billionaire.

It maybe looks so classy in its sleek black body paint, but I can’t see any special features of this Phantom. Anyway, I’m not so impressed with its square front grille, very confusing!

Still elegant looking, and very high-end luxury car. Can’t imagine how this car dress up very rich type. And the wheels and exterior are well defined.

This car reminds me of a presidential car or a billionaire. Maybe because of the gold wheel and bumper. This is very luxury design.

It shows that Rolls Royce still have their elegance on their cars, with a black and gold combinations, it give a stronger impact to every car enthusiasts for a corporate.

Talking about the Limo of Pres. Obama. I don’t hear any updates on that one. In my opinion, it is not a good idea to use a gold for a car. Gold are only for jewelry. I wonder why they are approving this kind of idea.

It has the luxurious look yet it still fits for the elders. Most probably, your car will be robbed because of that gold. This car must be customized with weapons just like the limo of President Obama.

The downside of luxury vehicle is that they focused more in modifying the physical appearance of car rather than upgrading the engine. IMO, the blings of this car is excessive and the thieves might be interested with those golds!

Actually, this is not first time seeing a car coated with golds. This kind off cars is quite dangerous. I don’t know where is the safer place to drive this car!

I think that Nissan has already beaten Rolls Royce in the gold trim idea. If I can remember correctly, they have done the same with a GT-R which they sold in the Middle East.

I agree with you on that, this one certainly fits in well with what Rolls Royce is all about. But I don’t think that that would be enough to convince them to actually build this baby.

Elegance and Luxury are the things that describes this car. If this is just a design study, well I think its a very impressive one. Rolls Royce will have no trouble regarding this one because its their specialty right?

I really love the gold trim that they have used on this one. I have seen other cars using that idea, but I would say that this one is probably the best on that part, it really made it very elegant.

One thing that I find a bit off with this one is the huge grille that they have included. I know that huge grilles are a trademark of Rolls Royce, but I think that this one is a bit over the top.

  (458) posted on 06.29.2011

Well, what can I say, this one really looks very elegant. This is definitely the ride that is well suited for all the VIP’s out there. Now, if only Rolls Royce would get this one built.

Now wonder, if Roll Royce would make a car that was filled with gold. However, it makes me wonder on how much will this car cost since the exterior and interior of the car has a touch of gold.

This is not my first time seeing a gold-coated car! Actually, there are a lot of customized luxurious car that features here. However, its better to be careful when driving this car for this would be the apple of the eye among thieves.
