British car manufacturer Rolls-Royce used for the first time wood of Koa, a rare species of tree that only grows on Hawaiian soil, for your model building Phantom, which is inspired by the love of its future owners towards this species after being in Hawaii.

The model, tailor-made for these clients, was inspired by a Koa wooden family rocking chair, which was collected naturally from a private forest.

Rolls-Royce Koa Phantom"The Koa Phantom demonstrates the extraordinary skill of the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective: a precious and rare example of a naturally derived material, Koa wood, is masterfully incorporated into the contemporary interior of the Phantom", he claimed Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce.

“It took more than three years for this request to come true and we are delighted that it occupies an important place in the collection of its future owners”, added the executive.

It is the first vehicle to incorporate this material after the request of its owners after spending time in Hawaii and having a rocking chair made of this wood as the centerpiece of their home for years.

Rolls-Royce Koa PhantomThe Koa tree only grows on these American islands and can only be harvested from private farmland as it is protected in Hawaii's state and national parks.

"Due to the very specific growing conditions required it is really rare to find such a unique trunk of this extremely limited resource", stood out from Rolls-Royce.
