For those who think the base model Phantom is only for poor people and dermatologists, Rolls Royce is issuing a few Tungsten Edition Phantoms to each of the continents. The name comes from the special Xiralic Darket Tungsten paint treatment the car gets, which would have looked great on our old 300D. What will really standout at the charity galas and secret gay trysts with Yendrick the Tennis Pro is the brushed aluminum hood from the 101 EX concept.

On the inside, Rolls Royce spares nothing, throwing in Smoke Grey seats with contrasting Navy Blue hide, straight-grained East Indian Rosewood veneer on the dash with micro engraved metal and the usual assortment of Rolls goodies. The piece d'resistance is the starlight headliner, which uses fiber-optics to create the illusion of a starry night, marking the first time that H2 limo tech has ended up in Royce. [Sybarites]
