One Rolls-Royce Ghost owner has commissioned a unique car accessory by artist Emma Wood who creates surfboards that cost up to $33,000
Artist Emma Wood is behind a studio called Woodpop that sells custom made furniture and surfboards besides just wall art. When she hand-crafts these surfboards Wood doesn’t do the same design twice, so exclusivity is guaranteed. As it should be with boards that cost up to $33,000. If you start getting personal with gold inlays, at $1,280 an ounce for the precious metal these things get expensive quick.
One aficionado however didn’t think twice, and looked to Woodpop to further accessorise his Rolls-Royce Ghost even though Goodwood’s own Bespoke department had already done its thing. The owner commissioned a unique board from Woodpop measuring 2.8m long and made of Paulownia timber, American Walnut, Ripple Sycamore, Figured Anigre and Birch. Plus of course generous lashings of 24 carat gold. It cost him $23,000, or around AED85,000.
Understandably the board probably won’t see any waves, but the owner has loaned the car and the roof-mounted artwork to Rolls-Royce so we regular fiberglass folk could get a look at it, if you’d happened to be in Cannes last week…
