Waterspeed Collection

Daring and endeavour

Sir Malcolm Campbell's successful pursuit of world speed records on land and water were the result of his commitment to the most exacting standards of British design and engineering excellence.

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive

On the morning of 1st September 1937, Sir Malcolm Campbell headed out onto the calm blue waters of Lake Maggiore on the Swiss-Italian frontier. Taking the wheel of his Bluebird K3 hydroplane boat, powered by a V12 Rolls-Royce R Engine, he claimed his first world water speed record with a top speed of 126.33 mph.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé Waterspeed Collection takes its inspiration from the water speed records set by Sir Malcolm Campbell and the iconic Bluebird K3 and K4.

With a series of bespoke elements never featured before on a
Rolls-Royce, Waterspeed's contemporary design evokes
the spirit of this historic accomplishment and reflects the pioneering qualities of the Bluebird.

The exterior features a unique brushed steel deck with a matching bonnet and is finished in Maggiore Blue, a unique colour inspired by the lake on which the 1937 record was set. On the interior, Windchill Grey leather upholstery with flashes of Maggiore Blue detailing is complimented by centrally bookmatched open grain Abachi wood veneers.
