To the crazy rich Asians out there, it seems this is especially for you. Rolls-Royce has just introduced the Privacy Suite for the Rolls-Royce Phantom Extended Wheelbase at the Chengdu Motor Show, choosing the Chinese event for the launch over the other concours currently happening in Europe and the United States.

Supposedly inspired by "power brokers and history makers" who have negotiated landmark agreements in the backseat of a Rolls-Royce, this ultra-plush interior setup is pretty much for anyone who wants utter seclusion and can well afford it. Total privacy is one of life's ultimate luxuries, after all.

Separating the Privacy Suite from the front row is an electrochromatic glass partition with two settings: see-through from the rear, or completely opaque. The rear window is fitted with privacy glass to shield you from the prying eyes of nosy commoners, but if that's not enough (or if you want to sit back and appreciate the starlight headliner while sipping some champagne), you can opt to deploy the privacy curtains on all the windows.

For sound isolation, a "frequency-specific compound inhibits the transmission of conversations in the rear cabin to the front cabin." You'll need to talk to the driver at some point, though, and that's where the intercom system comes in. It allows you to communicate with the driver anytime at the push of a button, but if he wants to talk to you, he’ll need to ask permission via the call function.

The two seats in the Privacy Suite get separate entertainment systems, each with a 12in monitor, control panels, and an HDMI port for syncing personal devices. Finally, between the two monitors is an aperture that may be opened only from the rear, for passing documents or objects. Crucially, it looks big enough to fit burgers and a large order of fries—even the crazy-rich get fast-food cravings, too, you know.

No word on pricing yet, but if you have to ask how much this costs...well, it means you'll be better off just looking at more photos:
