Rolls-Royce & Ode To Art Dinner
Every car from its Goodwood plant in the UK is a work of art, said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars during a private dinner held at Ode to Art, a contemporary art gallery in Raffles City Shopping Centre. He noted that each car takes nearly 800 man-hours—sometimes a thousand—to craft, and that each ride is tailor-made to the client's needs and wants. That was why he felt that an art gallery was the perfect location for the dinner since every artwork is a culmination of time, patience and skills. He thanked Jazz Chong, the owner and director of Ode to Art, for opening up the gallery for the intimate session, which saw guests wine, dine, and participate in lively conversation. That evening, a Rolls-Royce Black Badge Wraith, which is only available in limited quantity, was also parked right outside Fairmont Singapore, adjacent to Raffles City, and was the centre of attention of passers-by.
