Rolls Royce announced the addition of a new member to its Drophead Coupe family, called the Waterspeed Collection.
Waterspeed Collection was created to honor the Sir Malcom Campbell’s water speed record attempt that took place on September 1, 1937, on Lake Como, in Italy.
The assorted Drophead Coupe features “a number of exclusively created Bespoke design and engineering features, perfectly executed to create a thoroughly contemporary tribute to Campbell’s famous craft.”
On exteriors, the exclusive British carmaker painted a special shade, called Maggiore Blue, which will be limited for this model only. They said it was taken into imagination from the shade applied to the record breaking speedboat of Campbell in 1937.
The debut for the Waterspeed Collection is said to take place at two different locations: “the site of the original Bluebird Motor Company – now the Bluebird Restaurant – on the King’s Road, London on Tuesday 13 May 2014,” and at the 2014 Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa D’Este, meant to be held approximately ten days after the former event of UK.
