A ROLLS-ROYCE customer was so pleased with the bespoke work carried out on his Phantom that he had a special cake made in the shape of the car to give to the manufacturer’s artisans who had crafted his commission.
The cake was colour-matched to his vehicle, and following his presentation of the confection, the unnamed customer handed out slices to the people who had realised his vision at the Goodwood base.
He said: ‘I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the hard-working people, the unsung heroes who are responsible for these mobile works of art.’
No details were given about the work carried out on the flagship model, which costs from £362,055, but Rolls-Royce Motor Cars chief executive Torsten Müller-Ötvös said: ‘We thank our patron for this extraordinary gesture, which was warmly welcomed by everyone at the home of Rolls-Royce.
‘It is not unusual for our patrons to thank the men and women in the Rolls-Royce family who are responsible for building their motor cars, but this is the first time that one has asked to express their thanks in this way.’
First customer deliveries of the flagship Phantom were made in January and Rolls-Royce said the model had a strong order book throughout the year.
