Click above for a high-res gallery.

When you're surrounded by the copious quantities of automotive pornography in and around Pebble, it's unfortunate that the gaudiest bits of kit catch your eye. Case in point: this yellow Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe that was delivered to a customer in Monterey.

The gallery tells the wholly infelicitous tale, from the matching French's Mustard interior to the carbon fiber trim replacing the Drophead's standard burl wood bits. It's utterly tasteless, but we just can't help gawking. Join in on the pain below.

      There have been many magnificent Rolls Royce finished in yellow. Alas this is not one of them.

      The craftsmen at Crewe must have cried when they had to build this one.

        that's exactly what I was thinking... it's liking ordering a custom Rolex with a velcro wristband.

      If there was an "Encyclopedia of Ugly" this car would have it's own chapter.

      The stitching along the convertible top is nice and straight.

      I thought this was a "Say Something Nice Challenge."

      There's only one word to describe this vehicle:
      GHETTO!!!!

        WhyNotTheC63?:
        Actually ghetto started out as a term for a walled quarter in a European city to which Jews are restricted.

        What makes you think ghetto means "little or no taste"?

        Today the term ghetto is used for the projects; run down homes or parts of towns or cities. Nothing to do with fashion.

        If you've ever read a book, you'd know that.

        Ghetto because you can more frequently find tasteless whips in the ghetto areas of the world. Ghetto insenuates that one has little or no taste. Oil Sheikh's gold Camry makes him ghetto, even if he's got money.

        Why is this "Ghetto," in your book? Is everything tasteless, in ones opinion, "Ghetto?"
        Get's on my damn nerves whenever all anyone can call anything gawdy is, "Ghetto."

      I thought I read somewhere that Nick Hogan owned this car . Or owns a yellow RR.

      The color shows the basic design for what it is -- an utterly tasteless blob of crass excess lacking any of Rolls' traditional elegance. Rolls is but another brand badly bangled.

      Might as well put a NYC taxi medallion on the hood.
      That way, this tasteless owner could show the world that he has $300,000 to burn on a hood ornament.
      Then drive it around town while doing impressions of Travis Bickel saying "You talking to me?"

      Well, at least I don't see any orange peel in the paint, or would it be lemon peel in this case...

      This car belongs to Michael Fux, a popular collector who owns a number of other exotics in unique color combos like red/red, yellow/yellow, and white/white.

      Here is a picture I took of this car a few days ago outside a popular restaurant in Miami Beach:

      Hard to believe this came from the RR factory like this. I figured the boys from Crewe would be VERY conservative about what they let out the doors. They should re-think there customization policy ASAP.
        • 6 Years Ago
        The boys from Crewe !!!!!!!!!!!!. What are you on about.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yea, yea... Goodwood, ass.
      • 6 Years Ago
      OMG that is aweful, its sad, man, I bet its going to a rap star!
      • 6 Years Ago
      That poor car...It's owner must've rode the short bus to school as a child and became so enamored with it, decided to have a car painted to resemble one.

      Seriously, Pebble should, just for the owner's sole public humiliation, have a "Most Tasteless/Tacky" car award and declare this Rolls as it's inaugural winner.
