Some lucky customer in Saudi Arabia is going to get this literal one-of-a-kind creation

The Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe has had a pretty good life. First introduced in 2007, the massive two-door convertible has been a staple of Rolls-Royce’s model lineup. During that span, it’s made the headlines a number of times, including serving a prominent role in the closing ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics. And that’s on top of its status as one of the most expensive Rolls-Royce models today. On another level, the Phantom Drophead Coupe has also been the subject of a number of special edition models. Just recently, it was one of seven Rolls models featured in Rolls-Royce Bespoke’s Wisdom Limited Collection for Rolls-Royce Abu Dhabi. Now, we get another special edition Phantom Drophead Coupe, only this time, the significance of this special edition is mentioned in its “Last of Last” Edition name.

Yes, this is the last special edition version the British luxury automaker is building of the Phantom Drophead Coupe before the current-generation model is sent to retirement. It’s officially a one-off model so you can expect it to be loaded with a significant amount of special equipment befitting its status. The exterior, for example, is laden with fancy digs, highlighted by a Spirit of Ecstasy ornament that’s made from a material you normally don’t expect it to be made from. Likewise, the interior is as posh as a one-off Rolls model can get. Put these two elements together and you have a one-off creation that serves as a fitting send-off to one of the company’s mainstay models.

What makes the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe “Last of Last” Edition so special

It has a number of unique styling elements that even makes the white and turquoise body finish look run-off-the-mill by comparison.

How do you give the proper send-off to a model that’s been the staple of your vehicle line-up for a decade? That was the question that Rolls-Royce grappled with before ultimately deciding on the treatment it gave to the Phantom Drophead Coupe “Last of Last” Edition.

On the surface, the Last of Last Edition looks like a proper one-off Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. It has a number of unique styling elements that even makes the white and turquoise body finish look run-off-the-mill by comparison. The first of these unique styling elements is the decision to leave the hood, grille, and windshield of the two-door convertible completely unpainted. What we all see then are the brushed aluminum panels in all their shiny glory. Not content with just one significant styling detour, Rolls-Royce also looked at its Spirit of Ecstacy hood ornament to make a legitimate one-of-one statement. Instead of going traditional with a gold finish – yes, gold is “traditional” for Rolls-Royce – the British luxury brand opted to carve this ornament in crystal. On top of that, there’s a lighting mechanism just below ornament to make it shine more than it already does. Baller, Rolls-Royce. Straight up baller.

Rolls-Royce also went to work on the cabin of the Phantom Drophead Coupe, dressing it up in the same white and turquoise two-tone paint finish.

Living up to the lavish precedent set by the convertible’s exterior, Rolls-Royce also went to work on the cabin of the Phantom Drophead Coupe, dressing it up in the same white and turquoise two-tone paint finish. Most of the surface is covered in white leather while the turquoise finish comes in the form of added trim and highlights. The blue shade can also be seen in the steering wheel and center tunnel of the car while the carbon fiber trim can be seen on the lower section of the dashboard.

The overall look and treatment of the one-off Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe “Last of Last” Edition is a fitting embodiment of the capabilities of the British luxury brand when it puts its creative juices on full display. Unfortunately, none of that creativity translated into power upgrades for the exclusive Rolls. Instead, the person who does end up with this one-off gem will have to “settle” for the same 6.75-liter V-12 engine that powers all Phantom Drophead Coupes. That shouldn’t be an issue though because this engine is still capable of churning out 531 horsepower and 453 pound-feet of torque, enough to propel the two-door convertible to 60 mph in just 5.6 seconds before peaking at a top speed of 150 mph.

The Saudi Arabia dealership that’s taking delivery of this one-off creation is asking €450,000 for it.

Put all of these features together and we have ourselves a true one-off Rolls-Royce masterpiece. It’s every bit a Rolls-Royce exclusive as you can possibly get, which also means that like most one-offs of its kind, the Phantom Drophead Coupe Last of Last Edition is not going to come cheap. Not even the least bit. Apparently, the Saudi Arabia dealership that’s taking delivery of this one-off creation is asking €450,000 for it. That all adds up to just under $500,000 based on current exchange rates.
