Artist Helen Amy Murray and in-house designer Yohan Benchetri spent over 200 hours designing the floral decorations.

The Phantom Orchid’s “Gallery” dashboard Rolls-RoyceThe centerpiece of the vehicle is the dashboard, or “Gallery,” which is enclosed with glass to protect the vivid floral artwork. To create the flowers beneath the glass, Murray illustrated the designs by hand before creating a digital version that was then printed directly onto a fine silk crepe satin. These layers were then sculpted by hand to create a 3-D effect, according to the automaker. Floral flourishes can be found throughout the vehicle, including on the rear picnic table inlays, which feature orchids on top of a Piano Black veneer, and its Bespoke treadplates. The interior and exterior also feature a color palette designed to invoke an orchid sanctuary.

First drive review: 2021 Ford F-150 Tremor rolls the Raptor fantasy in with real lifeEvery F-150 Tremor has a SuperCrew cab, a 5.5-foot bed, and a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6—and enough Raptor looks to maybe be mistaken for one at a glance. mrlevine saw one on the road yesterday actually, can't forget that Tremor livery on the side, I wasn't sure what it was, now I know :) Best looking current F150. Ford is B-30 and Mitsubishi is B-60

model took two years to complete, with Murray logging over 200 hours designing its ornate decorations with a team of six. The Phantom Orchid’s “Gallery” dashboard  Rolls-Royce The centerpiece of the vehicle is the dashboard, or “Gallery,” which is enclosed with glass to protect the vivid floral artwork. To create the flowers beneath the glass, Murray illustrated the designs by hand before creating a digital version that was then printed directly onto a fine silk crepe satin. These layers were then sculpted by hand to create a 3-D effect, according to the automaker. Floral flourishes can be found throughout the vehicle, including on the rear picnic table inlays, which feature orchids on top of a Piano Black veneer, and its Bespoke treadplates. The interior and exterior also feature a color palette designed to invoke an orchid sanctuary. “I started by focusing on the actual orchids, which promptly led me to realize that color was key to capturing the essence of the species,” Murray said in a statement. “I have created artworks featuring orchids in the past, but my idea for the Gallery was to create something in realistic full color, which pushed us to refine our digital printing skills.” Artist Helen Amy Murray hand-sculpting the silk flowers for the Phantom Orchid  To top it all off, literally, the Phantom Orchid is finished in a unique coat of paint. Arctic White was selected for the base color and then blended with a hint of violet. The mixture was then combined with fine glass particles that give the coat a shimmering effect that is even more apparent under bright lights. Although the floral artwork is what distinguishes the Phantom Orchid, the car beneath the decoration is no slouch. Rolls-Royce didn’t provide any specs, but the bespoke vehicle is based on the Phantom Extended, which is usually powered by a 6.75-liter, twin-turbo V-12 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The potent mill is capable of kicking out 563 hp and 664 ft lbs of torque. So, it’s fair to say this Phantom will offer both beauty and brawn.
