Leading seller of the richest bespoke specifications in the world goes to new heights
Abu Dhabi, UAE: Whether it is the effortless glamour, prestige or the sheer elation that ownership of a bespoke Rolls-Royce commission inspires, the luxury car maker continues to lead the way in producing unique and exceptional cars.
As the sole dealer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, Abu Dhabi Motors recently welcomed the brand’s only free-hand coachline artist based in Goodwood to its showroom. Following a request from one of the importer’s prestigious clients who had previously admired another model’s coachline, Mark Court and his team flew direct from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ manufacturing plant in the United Kingdom to expertly paint fine lines entirely by hand on the coachline of the customer’s Rolls-Royce Ghost.
Having painted in the region of 2000 coachlines throughout his career to-date, Mr Court’s skill is a symbol of Rolls-Royce’s quality and uncompromising craftsmanship. His brushes are custom-made, cut to a specific width and length and made entirely from squirrel hair.
Priding itself in understanding customers’ tastes, Abu Dhabi Motors and Rolls-Royce go to great lengths to define the aesthetics of each and every vehicle “As the biggest-selling dealer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in the Middle East and among the top five dealers in the world, boasting the richest bespoke specifications, Abu Dhabi Motors continually strives to deliver excellence – from unique vehicles, to the quality of services to uncompromising clientele. Flying Mr Court to Abu Dhabi to paint a customers’ vehicle coachline is one example of this dedication,” explained Arno Husselmann, General Manager of Abu Dhabi Motors.
Commenting on his unique role, Mr Court said: “I load the brush and pull a certain length of the car. The skill is to actually lose the joint - you won’t see a joint line on these. I get huge satisfaction from every one that I do, especially knowing that I am the last person to touch this car before it goes out the door. I am the only one in Goodwood who does this job, and am currently training my son so I can pass it on to him.”
