Even if Rolls Royce offers one of the most bespoked cars in the world, there is always someone who wants to take the customization level to a different dimmension. Bengala Automotive, a design house based in Europe, joined forces with Vitesse AuDessus, a US based customization company, to offer a carbon fiber program for current Rolls-Royce models.

The program offers carbon fiber options for the Rolls-Royce Phantom, Phantom Coupé, Phantom Drophead Coupé, Wraith, Dawn, and Ghost. The featured material is a compressed carbon matrix that is similar to the Forged Carbon Fiber developed by Lamborghini and Callaway. The use of this material as an aesthetic offering is a first in the automotive industry.

The program is also offering another first in the industry: forged carbon fiber wheels. Lighter and denser than titanium, forged, carbon fiber wheels offer a clear engineering advantage over their metal alloy counterparts. Forged wheels are also a marked improvement in manufacturing lead-time compared to traditional carbon fiber layup. The availability of fast-curing resins makes it possible to produce a set in minutes, as opposed to days.

Every removable body panel is available in bare carbon replacements in the weave, tint and finish specified by the client. For those parts attached to the chassis, the brand offers lightweight veneers. All original parts are removed and stored in their original condition.

"Forged carbon fiber is an extraordinary development for the automotive industry. To the casual observer the material serves a purely utilitarian purpose. As a designer I was inspired by the mosaic-like motifs and felt that the aesthetic could be elevated. I visualized a material with the look of honed granite that would communicate the antithesis of the current perception: opulent luxury as opposed to acetic utilitarianism. The product that Vitesse AuDessus was able to develop exceeded my highest expectations; and, when thinking of the appropriate application for the material's debut as a luxury finish, no pairing was better suited than the handmade rolling masterpieces by Rolls-Royce,“ says Bengala Owner and Design Chief Shoghi Saeidnia."
