Globally renowned artist and South African treasure, Dr Esther Mahlangu, has lent her unique touch to a one-off Rolls-Royce Phantom set to reside in the Western Cape. 

Inspired by the famous body of work created by the now 84-year-old Mahlangu, regional director of Rolls-Royce motor cars Middle East and Africa, César Habib, and CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars South Africa, Justin Divaris, conspired to source a buyer for a one-of-a-kind Phantom that would, quite literally, serve as a rolling work of art. 

She unveiled it today at the Melrose Gallery at One&Only Cape Town.
