Chauffeur’s Post View
DESIGNING THE INTERIOR of a Rolls-Royce is not an easy job. Certain things are givens: fine woods and leathers, traditional ventilation elements, round instruments. Some are newly imposed by the current proprietors: making sure all metal aspect elements are actually made of metal, as in the recent Phantom VIII. Others are variable, as in the surprising glass-enclosed diorama section on that same Phantom known as the Gallery, excluded here. This is not a particularly harmonious composition, but it is appropriate to a Rolls-Royce, as it would definitely not be for a Mercedes-Maybach or a Cadillac.
