The latest "bespoke" model from Rolls-Royce was designed in honor of the Dubai International Motor Show, which will open its doors November 5. The Phantom Coupe Chicane pays homage to Goodwood, home to the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit and to the prestigious auto manufacturer's headquarters.

Mohammed El-Arishy, Rolls-Royce Brand Manager in Dubai, expressed his ambition to create "an automobile that captures all the unique atmosphere and history of the Goodwood Motor Circuit." In response, the British brand's custom design department developed this exceptional model using carbon fiber rather than wood for the exterior panels, and adding flair through red interior upholstery and wheels that match the body.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe Chicane is powered by the traditional 460hp V12 engine. The manufacturer has not yet released details on availability dates or pricing for the luxury vehicle, which will be unveiled in a world premiere in Dubai.

The Dubai International Motor Show takes place November 5-9, 2013 at the Dubai World trade Center.
