Rolls-Royce Ghost honours its illustrious namesake

Rolls-Royce is creating a collection of 35 Rolls-Royce Ghosts in homage to the original Silver Ghost model of 1907.

A solid sterling-silver hallmarked Spirit of Ecstasy, the muse that has guided motor cars created by the marque since 1911, will hint at the pioneering heritage of this motor car’s forebear.

A black-gold-plated collar enshrouds the base of the Spirit of Ecstasy, itself bearing the unique identity of this collection. An insert is crafted from hammered copper, in tribute to the copper extensively used in the engine bay of the original Silver Ghost.

Cassiopeia Silver, a complex bespoke silver paint that incorporates both warm and cool tones, bathes the exterior in a hue that echoes the silver paint of the original motor car.

The face of the limited-edition model is distinguished by black-painted grille veins that mimic the distinctive black grille of the ‘Silver Ghost’, while the fully-polished wheel centres, encircled with ‘SILVER GHOST – SINCE 1907’ engraved on a Cassiopeia Silver backing, echo the fine details of the original car.

Inside, accents of a specially created ‘Forest Green’ leather provide a nod to the original interior colour scheme. A newly-designed silver tipped leather is incorporated onto the front and rear door cards. Additionally, a silver inlay has been set into the open pore wood of the fascia and door cappings, flanking a hallmarked solid silver ingot. The clock is also styled as an ingot of silver, engraved with ‘Silver Ghost Since 1907’.

The door sill plates are engraved with the words ‘Silver Ghost Collection – One of Thirty-Five’, while the traditional Rolls-Royce umbrellas in the doors are edged in a silver-coloured binding and have open-pore oak handles, with the end of the handle engraved.

A bespoke central console contains a time-piece, sunglasses and accessories case,  alongside a Silver Ghost pen. As a finishing touch and to complete the collection, a special Silver Ghost hamper is also provided.

Model Year updates for Rolls-Royce Ghost

In addition to the bespoke details listed above, the Silver Ghost Collection also benefits from several model year updates to the Rolls-Royce Ghost.

The most noticeable of these is a bolder and more sculptured face, with the grille frame pushed further forward to produce a stronger sweep back into the front wings and give the front of the car a more three-dimensional look.

The traditional grille now has more deeply-set vanes, while the redesigned front bumper now features strongly horizontal lines. Two new 21-inch wheel designs are now offered.

Additional sound dampening materials have been added to the doors, rear wings and luggage compartment, which work in combination with a new acoustic film fitted between the glass layers in the side and rear windows to further reduce noise entering the cabin.

A totally new multimedia interface and larger screens for the rear passengers are part of a comprehensive entertainment upgrade. The new system also now responds to natural speech rather than predetermined commands, whilst navigation is improved by real-time traffic information.

Entertainment and communication is also enhanced by Blu-ray and significantly enhanced wi-fi capability, improved USB and HDMI connections and three sets of Kleer wireless headphones.
