Chinese hotelier Stephen Hung has made the largest single order of Rolls-Royces in the English marque's 118-year history, buying 30 bespoke Rolls-Royce Phantoms for his Louis XIII hotel in the gambling haven of Macau.
But not only is the order the largest ever made, but among those 30 Phantoms (all of which are the super-spacious Extended Wheelbase versions) are two of the most expensive Rolls-Royces commissioned, with extensive gold plating both inside and out.
Details of the order are understandably being kept on the down-low, but all 30 Phantoms will be customised by Rolls-Royce's Bespoke department and incorporate customised clocks crafted by jewellery company Graff Diamonds.
Each car will also sport a unique red paint scheme and a white-on-black interior, with custom Louis XIII embroidery on the leather upholstery.
The deal is estimated to be worth in excess of US$12 million.
Rolls-Royce will not only have a hand in designing the hotel's parking structures and entrance ramps to help accommodate each 6-metre long car, but will also train the chauffeurs when the Louis XIII hotel opens in 2016.
