Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Doha, part of the Alfardan Group, the authorized dealer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in Qatar, is announcing the local debut of the Bespoke Waterspeed Collection. Following the Collection’s global launch last month, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Doha was handpicked as one of a select group of dealers from across the globe to accept orders for the ultra-exclusive vehicle.

With only 35 Phantom Drophead Coupés produced in the Collection world-wide, Qatari ultra-luxury automobile aficionados now join an exclusive international community able to place an order for what is an inspired nod to a unique and storied racing heritage.

Revealed globally for the first time last month, the Collection was launched at the world-renowned Concorso D’Eleganza at Villa D’Este, on the shores of Lake Como, one of Italy’s world-famous lakes and directly adjacent to Lake Maggiore where Campbell famously established his legend.

Speaking of the Bespoke Waterspeed Collection and its availability to Qatar-based clients, Mr. Mohamed Kandeel, Chief Operating Officer, Alfardan Automotive Group, said: “Rolls-Royce has elegantly captured the essence of one of the greatest sporting moments in the 20th century with the Waterspeed Collection. Its availability within this market signifies both the discerning nature of our clients as it also reaffirms Rolls-Royce’s confidence and commitment to Qatar.”

Showcasing the very best of the Rolls-Royce Bespoke programme, the Phantom Drophead Coupé Waterspeed Collection features a number of exquisitely designed and crafted personalised features. Taking inspiration from Campbell’s record-breaking watercraft, only the finest contemporary materials – never used before on a Rolls-Royce – furnish the Waterspeed Collection. Taking further inspiration from the setting of the historic moment, the Phantom Drophead Coupés’ brushed steel perfectly complements an exclusively developed Maggiore Blue colour scheme. Hand-crafted wood inlays further reinforce this outstanding heritage as it evokes the sense of a boat effortlessly gliding through water at pace.

“The Waterspeed Phantom Drophead Coupé is the latest in a long line of exquisite vehicles created by the Rolls-Royce Bespoke programme. It is a fine example of hand-crafted luxury motoring and is a unique and fitting tribute to a storied racing legacy. With so few production units of this stunning motorcar on offer globally, we are honoured that Qatar has been selected to be one of the few importers to offer this vehicle,” he added.

Highlighting the level of precise detail that Rolls-Royce is known for, it will take over 80 hours for a Rolls-Royce craftsperson to manufacture and hand brush each car’s striking brushed steel deck. The coachline, complete with Bluebird motif, will take another four hours to hand-craft using a unique squirrel-hair brush.
