Rolls-Royce revealed a sketch of the upcoming Bespoke Waterspeed Collection, a series of 35 Phantom Drophead Coupes. The collection is dedicated to the water speed record set on September 1 1937 by Sir Malcolm Campbell on Lake Maggiore.
The Waterspeed Collection for the Phantom Drophead Coupé will feature “the finest contemporary materials never used before on a Rolls-Royce," including brushed steel complementing an exclusively developed Maggiore Blue color scheme, and hand-crafted wood inlays on the bodywork.

I very much look forward to revealing these remarkable cars over the coming months,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
