When a Rolls-Royce model series reaches its tenth year of production, the end of this production time is approaching. At the same time, the model achieves the highest level of quality and refinement. Accordingly, the British company is paying tribute to this point with the limited Zenith Collection. This was the case with the Phantom VII in 2016 and it is now also the case with the somewhat smaller Ghost, whose original version debuted in form of the concept car 200EX at the Geneva Motor Show in 2009. This best-selling saloon in the brand’s history helped significantly to open up new target groups and thus reduce the average age of new car buyers at Rolls-Royce to 43 years.
Now 50 buyers worldwide can enjoy the absolute zenith in Bespoke individualisation. Among other things, the Ghost Zenith Collection receives an element that connects it directly to the 200EX. The radiator figure ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’ from the concept car was melted down and the material used to cast small ingots with the inscription ‘Ingot formed out of the Spirit of Ecstasy from the Rolls-Royce 200EX – One of Fifty’ and the silhouette of the Ghost integrated into the decorative panel of the center tunnel. These decorative panels also have special designs in the style of technical blueprints, with each of the 50 vehicles showing an own piece of it. Below the analogue clock on the dashboard and on the radiator figure is the inscription ‘Ghost Zenith Collection’.
At the door cards, light from hidden light sources shines through perforated leather areas. Depending on the chosen exterior and interior colors, the upper edges of the door panels show one of three different marquetry, either made of wood, piano lacquer or Technical fiber. The rear seats show embroidery in the style of the legendary Silver Ghost of 1907 and two-tone contrasting leather. In the Ghost Zenith Collection with normal wheelbase, the headliner shows the familiar LED stars with integrated, random shooting stars. More than 1,340 individual optical fibers have been integrated for this purpose. The Extended Wheelbase cars feature a leather headliner with embroidery.
Three different color combinations are available for the exterior: ‘Iguazu Blue’ with ‘Andalusian White’, ‘Premiere Silver’ with ‘Arctic White’ or ‘Bohemian Red’ with ‘Black Diamond’. The staff of Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke department will coordinate the interior design with the respective customer to match perfectly. Interested parties should hurry. The Zenith Collection contains the final 50 copies of the Rolls-Royce Ghost. The rush for these upcoming collector’s items should be correspondingly great.
