Hong Kong tycoon buys 30 Rolls-Royce Phantoms
Stephen Hung has bought 30 Phantoms to chauffeur guests at a luxury resort he is building in the global gambling capital of Macau.
A HONG KONG TYCOON has placed the biggest ever order for Rolls-Royce cars, agreeing to buy 30 Phantoms to chauffeur guests at a luxury resort he is building in Macau.
Stephen Hung signed the deal with Rolls-Royce executives on Tuesday at the company’s Goodwood factory in England.
The extended wheelbase Phantoms will be used for guests at Hung’s “ultra-luxury” Louis XIII hotel, which is scheduled to open in early 2016.
The resort will boast a 1,860-sq metre (20,000-sq ft) villa billed as the world’s “most extravagant” hotel suite, which will cost $130,000 a night.
Two of the cars will be the most expensive Phantoms ever commissioned, complete with gold-plated accents on both the exterior and interior.
The PHANTOM‘s list price is about $600,000, but many buyers order custom features that push prices much higher. Customers have been known to spend more than $1 million on bespoke models.
Stephen Hung’s purchase adds up to about HK$155 million and surpasses the 14 Phantoms bought in 2006 by The Peninsula hotel in Hong Kong.
