The Amethyst Droptail, part of the exclusive Rolls-Royce Coachbuild series, captures the essence of its owner’s spirit in every detail. Commissioned by an individual of discerning taste and international stature, this coachbuilt creation serves as an embodiment of their connoisseurship and global outlook. Torsten Müller-Ötvös, the Chief Executive Officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, notes that the unparalleled character of Coachbuild motor cars is a result of the client’s personal involvement and conviction, which shine through in the Amethyst Droptail’s exceptional clarity of vision.

Design Director Anders Warming emphasizes the intrinsic connection between the owner’s identity and the uniqueness of a Coachbuilt Rolls-Royce. He describes the Amethyst Droptail as a representation of how Rolls-Royce’s creative response can project an individual’s soul through both literal and conceptual expressions of luxury.

A Gem-Inspired Masterpiece

The inspiration behind the Amethyst Droptail is rooted in the gemstone world. The client’s deep connection to gemstones, particularly the amethyst, gave rise to a design that embodies the purity, clarity, and resilience associated with this precious stone. The vehicle’s exterior finish is a tribute to the Globe Amaranth wildflower, which blooms in the desert near the client’s residence. The duotone paint finish mimics the flower’s different stages of bloom, showcasing a soft purple hue with an iridescent silver undertone.

The commitment to detail is evident in the complex carbon fiber pattern adorning the lower sections of the vehicle. The chevron pattern, meticulously book-matched along two axes, showcases the dedication of Rolls-Royce artisans to achieve geometric perfection.

Craftsmanship and Detail

Rolls-Royce’s dedication to perfection extends to every facet of the Amethyst Droptail. The wooden surfaces on the vehicle’s exterior are a testament to the brand’s craftsmanship. The rear deck, the largest wooden surface ever produced by Rolls-Royce, showcases the collaboration between aerodynamic experts and wood specialists, resulting in a functional wood surface that generates downforce.

The interior of the Amethyst Droptail reflects the client’s passion for contemporary design and his family’s gemstone legacy. The use of Calamander Light open-pore wood complements the gentle contrasting leather in Sand Dunes hue, creating a harmonious fusion of materials. Rolls-Royce’s meticulous attention to detail is also evident in the adornment of rotary dials with convex cabochon-style amethyst gems, reminiscent of fine jewelry.

A Symphony of Luxury

The Amethyst Droptail is not just an automobile; it’s a symphony of luxury, innovation, and artistic expression. A removable hardtop transforms the vehicle from an open-top roadster to a dramatic coupe. The electrochromic glass on the roof showcases a chameleon effect, changing color and transparency at the touch of a button to match the vehicle’s exterior and interior hues.

To complement the vehicle’s opulence, the client commissioned a bespoke timepiece from Vacheron Constantin, a Swiss haute horlogerie maison. The hand-crafted timepiece, ‘Les Cabinotiers Armillary Tourbillon,’ echoes the fusion of modernity and heritage present in the Amethyst Droptail.

A Legacy in the Making

The Rolls-Royce Amethyst Droptail is more than a luxury automobile; it’s a timeless masterpiece that celebrates heritage, craftsmanship, and individuality. This coachbuilt creation stands as a testament to Rolls-Royce’s ability to bring a client’s vision to life, creating a vehicle that transcends the boundaries of automotive design and becomes a work of art in its own right. With the Amethyst Droptail, Rolls-Royce once again demonstrates its commitment to pushing the boundaries of luxury and setting new standards of excellence in the automotive world.
