In 2005 Rolls-Royce Motorcars launched the Phantom Extended Wheelbase. Adding 250mm to the length of the original chassis required a new set of components to replace the existing interior centre roof panel, door panniers, D post finishers and HVAC ducts. Rapitypes was contracted to supply batches of high impact, flame retardant, polyurethane RIM carrier components for the interior roof and doors, which were subsequently trimmed in leather by Rolls-Royce before fitment to the vehicles.
The HVAC air management ducts were produced using Rapitypes’‘Roto-RIM process. Roto-Rim is a form of roto-moulding, which can produce highly toleranced hollow and tubular components in polyurethane. Rapitypes continue to supply these parts to Rolls-Royce motor cars.
