1929 Rolls-Royce Phantom II İn The Television Series
Hollywood A-lister Jason Momoa’s stunning 1929 Rolls-Royce Phantom II, converted to clean electric power by Electrogenic, features in star’s TV series ‘On The Roam’
The internationally renowned British EV technology company, Electrogenic, has revealed that the stunning 1929 Rolls-Royce Phantom II it recently converted to clean, all-electric power was completed for a very special customer: Jason Momoa – star of Game of Thrones, Aquaman and Dune.
The all-electric Phantom and Electrogenic’s talented team of engineers and fabricators play a starring role in Momoa’s documentary series, On The Roam, which is available to watch now on Discovery+ and HBO Max. The series follows Momoa as he travels around the world, meeting extraordinary individuals blazing their own creative paths – from craftsmen and motorcycle fabricators, to musicians and athletes.
On The Roam captures the painstaking process of converting the remarkable Rolls-Royce Phantom II, which features original coachwork by HJ Mulliner & Co, to electric drive. Working closely with Momoa, a car enthusiast who’s deeply passionate about the environment, Electrogenic has given the stately Phantom II the silent, effortless powertrain that Charles Rolls and Sir Henry Royce – both early pioneers of electric motors – would have perhaps chosen had the technology been available to them.
Jason Momoa, said: “In order to pull off this dream project, I had to find the right partner. I needed a team that would appreciate the stored history of this car while updating its technology. Electrogenic is all about honouring vintage cars. Making them electric without losing any of the vehicle’s character. They were the perfect fit.”
Steve Drummond, Director, Electrogenic, added: “We’re delighted to finally reveal the full details of this car to the world. It has been a labour of love for everyone at Electrogenic, and a lot of fun, working with Jason over the course of 18 months to bring his vision to life.
“Our team of engineers, programmers and fabricators have poured their hearts and souls into Jason’s beautiful Phantom II. This is undoubtedly the most complex classic car EV conversion ever undertaken, so the stunning results really are a testament to the world-leading talents of our team. We’re immensely proud of the finished car, and humbled that Jason entrusted us with this landmark project.
“Now, for our work and team to be showcased on screen by Jason alongside other passionate craftspeople, really is the icing on the cake. It’s the perfect way to celebrate this Phantom II, which is now future-proofed for another hundred years of stately motoring.”
