Sacha Jafri collaborated with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Dubai and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Abu Dhabi to produce ‘The Six Elements’ Phantom. The one-of-a-kind Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II automobiles have Sacha Jafri Gallery paintings. In addition, every painting is influenced by one among the five elements: earth, water, fire, wind, and air. In the meantime , humanity is the sixth factor.
Additionally, the cooperation between Rolls-Royce and Sacha Jafri intends to earn $1 million for charity. Nevertheless, the squad has not yet announced which organizations it will sponsor. Nevertheless, Rolls-Royce said that they would assist organisations with an emphasis on studies, healthcare, and sustainability.
Jafri said that the six Rolls-Royce Phantoms would encapsulate the mood of every elemental energy. “The creative journey begins and concludes with passion and purpose, fueling my motivation to develop the ‘Six Elements’ colour palette. Earth, Fire, Wind, Water, and Air are augmented by the inclusion of a “fresh element” — humanity, the essential core of life.”
In conjunction with the Phantom ‘The Six Elements’ launch, Rolls-Royce is introducing an NFT campaign. The project, titled “Rolls-Royce That Keeps on Giving,” consists of six NFTs with flythrough animations. Each NFT is distinct and associated with one of the six Phantoms. However, owners are permitted to liquidate their NFTs individually.
Significantly, Rolls-Royce will give 20% of the royalties from the sale of each NFT to the designated charity. In keeping with the collection’s name, the goal is to enable organizations continue to gain from NFTs. In addition, the company will instal these NFTs within every Phantom’s glove box. This allows the owners to see their NFTs while being in their vehicles.
