Rolls-Royce unveils bespoke ‘Al Adiyat’ collection

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has unveiled a collection of ten highly-Bespoke Rolls-Royce vehicles which has taken inspiration from region’s heritage in equestrianism and created specifically for UAE clientele. The ‘Al Adiyat’ collection, takes its name from the Arabic phrase ‘wal Adiyat’ and the title of a chapter in the Holy Quran, means ‘those who run’, and refers to the Stallions and Mares that were traditionally used in wars and expeditions across Arabia.

The collection which includes the Wraith, and Phantom Coupé, were created through a meticulous year-long process involving elaborate Bespoke craftsmanship at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England, to be made available only to Abu Dhabi Motors, the sole dealer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.

The ‘Al Adiyat’ collection comes in three striking exterior colours- St. James Red, Arctic White and Infinity Black, all inspired by the deep tones and rich hues that characterize the coats of Arabian Thoroughbreds. The theme is also reflected in the interiors of the vehicles with various combinations of Mugello Red and Arctic White leather contrasted against Piano White and Piano Black veneers. The equine theme is infused throughout the collection as each vehicle features a horse motif in hand-stitched embroidery across the headrests and the centre of the front armrest, replicated strikingly on the monitor lid and Bespoke Coachline, and bridle embroidery along the sides of the passenger doors. A gold-plated horseshoe symbol, universally associated with good luck, completes this unique masterpiece with a graceful touch on the bespoke clock and treadplates.

General Manager of Abu Dhabi Motors Mr. Arno Husselmann says inspiration for the collection, General Manager of Abu Dhabi Motors Mr. Arno Husselmann said: “Horses are an integral part of Arabian heritage and often associated with royalty and luxury in the region, so these unique Bespoke vehicles draw immense parallels with these associations, whilst maintaining the sophistication that Rolls-Royce vehicles epitomise. The war horses that the name ‘Al Adiyat’ refers to convey ferocity, dynamism and agility; attributes that are faithfully represented by the Phantom Coupe and Wraith, two of the most powerful and prominent models in the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars vehicle portfolio.”

The offering of the Al Adiyat collection has made its representative dealership Abu Dhabi Motors the biggest Bespoke dealer in the world for the brand. In the past year it has conceptualised or offered renowned one-off concepts such as the Bespoke Suhail Collection, celebrating the life of influential Arab Mathematician and Inventor Ibn Al-Haytham; and global limited collections such as Waterspeed, Pinnacle Travel and Metropolitan.
