Attend Super Bowl XLIX Incognito in a Rolls-Royce Nighthawk

Ahead of Super Bowl XLIXRolls-Royce unveiled a new bespoke Phantom Drophead Coupe to show off around the events happening in Phoenix, this weekend.

Painted in Diamond Black Metallic, the ‘Nighthawk’ edition (as it is called) gets a nearly full carbon fiber treatment on the interior. This includes dash and door panels as well as the dials on the instrument panel, complete with orange tipped hands to “evoke the feeling of a performance cockpit,” according to the press release.

The bonnet (AKA the hood in American parlance) is painted a matte version of the body color and the windscreen surround is made of  material “inspired by radar-absorbent material” found on jets–for those moments when you want to be really incognito in your $569,600 Roller. (The Phantom Drophead Coupe starts around $475,000, the looks package adds nearly $95,000.)

Oh–and if you want one–you’ll have to find your way to a U.S. Rolls-Royce dealer–and hurry. Rolls is only making nine Nighthawk editions.
