The Rolls-Royce Golden Sun Bird may very well be the only car created to show love to an ancient Chinese artifact. The artifact in question is the Golden Sun Bird, found in the Jinsha Ruins of Chengdu in 2001. It is believed that the Golden Sun Bird was created sometime around 1000 B.C.

The Rolls-Royce Golden Sun Bird is a one-off creation, and like all one-off Rolls, it is lavish and luxurious (more so than normal). The Golden Sun Bird has gold paint, gold on its wheels and a hood ornament covered in the precious metal. The interior of this modified Phantom is covered in brown leather with golden embroidery on the seats. To top it all off, there is a gold sill plate that let's everyone know that the Rolls-Royce Golden Sun Bird is the only one of its kind. Ancient artifacts have never looked better.
