Car collector Michael Fux received his 12th Bespoke Rolls-Royce commission, adding to another stunning reveal at Monterey.
Unveiled at 'The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering', Rolls-Royce Motor Cars debuted the spectacularly colourful commission, 'Cullinan in Fux Orange,' marking the 10th time the brand has developed and reserved a colour carrying the name of the prolific patron of Bespoke.
Vibrant Orange matches a ladies wrap that caught Mr. Fux's eye in South Florida Unveiled by Torsten Muller-Otvos, Chief Executive, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, the commission was the highlight of the Rolls-Royce celebration at The Quail and Monterey Car Week, one of the hallmark annual gatherings for global luxury collectors worldwide.
Working with the Bespoke design and colour development team at the Home of Rolls-Royce, Goodwood, Mr. Fux challenged the designers to match the exterior colour to a vibrant orange ladies wrap that caught his eye in South Florida. He purchased the wrap and had it delivered to the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective.
Working together for nearly a year, the teams delivered the perfect surface application of more than seven layers of finish polished by hand for multiple hours in the Surface Finish Center. The exterior even features black Cullinan wheels and pinstripe wheel centers in the bright 'Fux Orange.'
Handcrafted Arctic White leather with offsetting Orange stitching feature on the interior, with Orange Rolls-Royce 'RRs' on the headrests The interior is decked in handcrafted Arctic White leather with offsetting Orange stitching and Orange Rolls-Royce 'RRs' on the headrests. Arctic White is carried over to the luxurious box grain leather fascia, steering wheel control stems and carpets.
The designers brought colour contrast with 'Fux Orange' finished fascia veneer, rear view mirror and lambswool floor mats. The contrast of white and colour showcased the artisanship with exacting standards for the Rolls-Royce craftspeople.
Mr. Fux's Rolls-Royce cars are the highlight of his collection including more than 150 of the world's most unique and colourful motor cars. Arriving in the United States a young Cuban immigrant, Mr. Fux built a series of successful businesses in the bedding and linen industry.
The white and orange colour contrast continues onto the lambswool floor mats, showcasing the exacting standards at Rolls-Royce Today, he strives to give something back to the communities he has worked in. Since establishing the Michael Fux Foundation in 2006, he has donated millions of dollars to enrich the lives of children stricken with serious illnesses.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has dozens of colours reserved for numerous clients around the globe. Among the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars he has commissioned, Mr. Fux now 'owns' 10 Bespoke colours, more than any other patron of the brand.
