Dubai Auction Stars One-of-a-Kind Rolls-Royce: A Spectre of Style and Speed

In an event that’s gearing up to be as lavish as its centerpiece, RM Sotheby’s Dubai auction is set to feature a rare gem on the block: a 2015 Rolls-Royce ‘Silver Spectre’ Shooting Brake by Carat Duchatelet, with an estimated value between $275,000 and $325,000 USD (INR 2.69 crore). This isn’t just any Rolls-Royce; it’s a chassis number SCA665C03FUX79064, a one-of-one adaptation of a modern coachbuilt shooting brake that’s as unique as its lengthy identification number.

The Silver Spectre is the brainchild of Neils van Roij Design, the same Dutch design house that brought us the Ferrari ‘Breadvan Hommage’ and the Range Rover ‘Adventum Coupé’. This particular Rolls-Royce Wraith underwent a dramatic transformation at the hands of Carat Duchatelet, a Belgium-based specialist in bespoke vehicle conversion. The metamorphosis wasn’t a quick one – it took a staggering 2,500 hours over two years to complete.

Underneath its custom-made body, the Silver Spectre roars with the heart of a beast – a 6.6-litre V-12 engine, uprated to deliver an impressive 690 brake horsepower. The exterior is a masterful blend of elegance and functionality, boasting svelte, coupé-like proportions against an elongated body, reminiscent of the shooting brake’s heyday in the 1960s and 1970s.

But it’s not just about what’s under the hood or the sleek lines of its exterior. Step inside, and you’re transported to a world where luxury knows no bounds. The handmade “infinity” headliner, stretching across the interior roof, mimics an endless starlit sky, a feature that would make even the most jaded of car enthusiasts swoon.

History buffs would appreciate that the shooting brake design has its origins in the wagons of horse-drawn carriages, evolving over time to become a symbol of stylish practicality. The Silver Spectre pays homage to this tradition while infusing it with modern luxury and power.

Previously retained by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and first registered in the United Kingdom, this masterpiece found its way to Germany in 2017, where the transformation began. Fast forward to today, and the car boasts just 17,965 kilometers on its odometer.

The auction promises to be more than just a sale; it’s a rare opportunity for car enthusiasts and collectors to own a piece of automotive history. The Silver Spectre isn’t just a car; it’s a statement on wheels, a blend of art, history, and high-octane performance. Don’t miss your chance to own this one-of-a-kind spectacle on wheels – it’s a spectre that’s sure to haunt the dreams of car lovers everywhere!
