Earlier this year, Rolls Royce announced that the seventh generation Phantom is to make way for the eighth, with the Drophead Coupé and Coupé models to be retired. The luxury marque is rolling out one last special collection, though, to celebrate the two models.

The seventh generation Phantom debuted in 2003, with the open-top Drophead Coupé released in 2007 and the hard-top Coupé a year after that. The new Phantom is to be built on a new aluminum architecture that Rolls Royce says will be used for all of its future models, but it says it views the Dawn and the Wraith as continuing the legacy of the Drophead Coupé and the Coupé, respectively.

For those who want something special by which to remember the two models, though, there's the Phantom Zenith Collection. Created by the Rolls Royce Bespoke team, Zenith Collection models are designed to serve as collectors' items and to join "some of the world's most significant luxury collections."

Cars in the collection have a variety of unique elements. There's a split tailgate with leather cushioning on which to sit while enjoying a picnic, a glass shelf that forms part of the tailgate "from which to serve Champagne" and a fridge in which to store two bottles of bubbly and eight Rolls Royce glasses. Customers can complete the al fresco entertainment set with an optional Rolls-Royce Picnic Hamper personalized to match their materials and color palette preferences.

Laser etching on the ends of the armrests inside the car doors reference the global debut locations of their precursor experimental versions, those being the 100EX for the Drophead Coupé and the 101EX for the Coupé. And a drawer on the central fascia houses a removable polished aluminum case that is engraved with the car's unique identification number. Inside each case is a piece of the Phantom assembly line from Goodwood, England, complete with co-ordinates of the exact location on the assembly line from where the piece was taken.

Elsewhere, different leather colors are used for the front and rear seats. The "Starlight Headliner," which has passengers sitting below a twinkling night-sky, meanwhile, is handwoven, with stars clustered to the front and faded to the rear.

The interior and exterior styling options for the Phantom Zenith Collection are said to be drawn from historic Rolls Royce models, including a 1930s Phantom II, a 1930s Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental and a the 2011 Phantom Coupé Aviator Collection. The brushed steel instrument panel references Wraith's aviation-inspired motif.

Rolls says it is taking the last orders for the Phantom Zenith Collection now.
