If you’re one of those extremely well-to-do individuals who feel like the Rolls-Royce in your garage is boring and needs a bit of added spice, then this Carbon Atelier Program will definitely get your composite craving fixed.
This programme is brought to you by European design house Bengala Automotive and US-based Vitesse AuDessus who will both customise your Rolls-Royce with forged carbon fibre parts. Forged carbon fibre, according to Bengala, is not necessary for weight reduction or performance properties but more for aesthetics purposes.
They have managed to produce carbon fibre to a granite-like finish, unlike the conventional weave like design. From the picture, the material finish looks akin to a piece of fine jewel. Vitesse offers customised body panels for the Phantom, Phantom – Coupé, Phantom – Drophead Coupé, Ghost, Wraith and Dawn.
On top of that, the company also offers custom forged carbon fibre wheels, which they claim to be a world’s first. The said wheels are more rigid and lighter than titanium alloys. Bengala and Vitesse guarantee that all parts are of the highest standards and comply with OEM fit and finish. All parts come with a 5-year warranty against any defect or yellowing of the materials.
Now, if you’re in dying need to customise your Rolls with forged carbon fibre components, be glad to know that Vitesse ships worldwide. You can view their online catalogue here.
