6×6 Rolls-Royce contraption shatters everything you know about the ultra-luxury brand

Standard...it ain't
  • This 6×6 Rolls-Royce is now a lot longer, and wider, than the standard model
  • The engine is unmodified, apart from the gold leaf cover
  • The interior features snake and crocodile leather upholstery

This is the world’s first 6×6 Rolls-Royce Phantom.

The Phantom isn’t small to begin with but the 6×6 conversion makes it absolutely huge.

It is now 20.6ft (6.3m) long and 7.5ft (2.3m) wide, which means it is very nearly as wide as a bus.

The Phantom has been hacked apart and extended by Alexandre Danton, who clearly has a knack for extreme customization.

In his collection, Danton also has a 6×6 Land Rover Defender (a lot wilder than the one built by Classic Overland) and a rat rod style Lamborghini Espada, just to name a couple.

The 6×6 Rolls-Royce also has a huge LED bar on top of the windshield, a new roof rack, front bumper bar and side skirts, and even a tow hitch.

It also has massive 24-inch wheels with gold-plated brake calipers, which now match the yellow headlights, contrasting the matte black finish.

The whole front grille has been blacked out, too.

Alexandre Danton told Supercar Blondie the body fenders at the front and back were completely custom-made, shaped by hand using bare sheets of aluminum. 

That’s why it looks even wider than it actually is.

The cabin features bright orange leather upholstery for the seats with crocodile leather inserts for the steering wheel, and snake leather for the center console.

‘Subtle’ is probably not the first word that springs to mind.

Under the hood, you’ll find Rolls-Royce’s iconic 6.75-liter V12, and it’s unmodified, except for the not-so-standard gold leaf cover.

Amazingly, even though this was the world’s first 6×6 Rolls-Royce, it isn’t the only one.

 Dao Truong Van, the talented Vietnamese man who makes cars out of wood, also built one.
