Abu Dhabi: A limited edition, one-of-a-kind Rolls-Royce is rolling into the showroom of Abu Dhabi Motors soon.

"Only one person in the whole world will own the ‘Ruby Limited Edition’ Phantom Coupe,” said Arno Husselmann, General Manager of Abu Dhabi Motors. No further details were given on when the vehicle will be displayed for sale.

The bespoke Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe called "Ruby Limited Edition" is inspired by the beauty and natural energy of rubies, and features the gemstone prominently throughout the vehicle design.

The model was conceptualised by Kadhim Al Helli, Rolls Royce Brand Manager at Abu Dhabi Motors before being hand-crafted by specialists at the home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England.

The vehicle features a Merlot Red Mica exterior, with interiors fitted out in a twin tone  Seashell (white) and Mugello Red.

The theme continues throughout the vehicle with Marine White hand-selected wood and Seashell star lights contrasting against Mugello Red seat piping and Consort Red carpets and foot mats in addition to Lambswool mats.

Ruby Marquetry inlays decorate the fascia, front and rear headrests, while other bespoke touches include a personalised clock with a cut ruby stone inlay, illuminated Spirit of Ecstasy, personalised tread plates graphics and a twin coachline in Seashell with an integrated "ruby" logo.

The vehicle also features a personally embroidered glove box, with the description “Ruby motif – one of one.”
