Hong Kong billionaire Stephen Hung has purchased the largest Rolls-Royce Phantom fleet in the world, placing an order for 30 bespoke Extended Wheelbase Phantoms for his Louis XIII casino-hotel in Macau. All cars will be painted in red and fitted with a black-white-red interior. The cars will be delivered in the first half of 2016 when the hotel is scheduled to open its doors to gamblers from around the world, but mostly from the Chinese mainland.
The limousines will be used to chauffeur the gambling guests of the hotel from and to the airport, or to anywhere else they want to go. Two of the cars in the fleet will feature additional internal and external gold accents, and are the most expensive Phantoms ever commissioned. All 30 cars in the Louis XIII fleet will feature bespoke timekeeping by Graff Luxury Watches.
