The collection of just 50 Zeniths will celebrate the timeless elegance of a nameplate that has become the cornerstone of contemporary Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
Very rarely is there a chance for collectors of luxury to obtain an item that is truly at its apex. In the context of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, these rare moments present themselves approximately once every 10 years. Rolls-Royce observes the ultimate craftsmanship and perfection, and when better to do so than when celebrating the success and global adoration that has been lavished on one of the world's most luxurious motor cars during its life cycle.
Zenith Collector's Edition Rolls-Royce Ghost will be limited to just 50 examples It is in this vein that, as the Rolls-Royce Ghost approaches the end of its remarkable 10-year tenure, the marque offers to collectors an extremely limited Zenith Collector's Edition of the Rolls-Royce Ghost.
The Collection of just 50 Zeniths will celebrate the timeless elegance of a nameplate that has become the cornerstone of contemporary Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. Keeping to its name, the Ghost Zenith Collection will feature the highest levels of bespoke design ever seen on a Ghost Collection car.
The Ghost is a luxury icon that carries with it a rich and extraordinary past. From the Silver Ghost, the motor car that established the moniker of 'The Best Car in the World' over 100 years ago, to the 200EX, the experimental car that introduced the concept of a contemporary expression of this nameplate, the Ghost has offered patrons of the marque a modern, lithe and driver-focused Rolls-Royce.
Limited edition models will also have the collection's name engraved on the Spirit of Estacy When production of Ghost began in 2009, patrons across the world were drawn to its elegant lines and dynamic offering and it quickly became, and remains to this day, the most successful Rolls-Royce motorcar ever to be built, attracting a new group of young entrepreneurs to the marque.
The Ghost Zenith Collection draws many references from the 200EX, with perhaps the most significant being the inclusion of a commemorative ingot, made from the original 200EX Spirit of Ecstasy, melted down and set into the centre console of each of the 50 Zeniths.
Engraved with the three key design lines of Ghost, the plaque details its significant origins. The Collection's own Spirit of Ecstasy and clock are engraved with the name of this highly anticipated collection.
The famed starlight headliner is now capable of firing shooting stars acroos the cabin roof, adding to the car's sense of theatre Stepping in to car, one's eye is naturally drawn to the interior of the Collection's doors, owing to the illuminated door pockets. Ambient light emits through perforated leather enhancing the architectural elegance of Ghost's interior.
One will also encounter a complex piece of marquetry, created by the master craftsmen and women in the marque's legendary woodshop. Available in either wood, technical fibre or piano finished veneer, the door marquetry transitions from the driver's suite to passenger suite, emphasizing the dual nature of the Ghost.
Occupants of the Ghost Zenith Standard Wheelbase will experience an extraordinary phenomenon: The famed starlight headliner is presented in a unique Shooting Star configuration. Shooting stars fire at random across the cabin roof, adding an extraordinary sense of theatre. This surprise and delight feature consists of over 1,340 individually mapped and hand-woven fibre optic lights.
Three different two-tone paint options are available for the limited edition cars Reminiscent of its Phantom counterpart, The Ghost Zenith Collection's exterior styling takes on a new interpretation of its own - a special two-tone application with a gloss-contrast paint finish.
Patrons may select three different colour-ways, Iguazu Blue with Andalusian White, Premiere Silver with Arctic White or a daring Bohemian Red with Black Diamond, with multiple variants available highlighting the flexibility of the model. The Silver Satin bonnet was first seen on the 200EX.
These extraordinary motor cars, which represent the final opportunity to acquire this landmark, transformative luxury product, are currently being hand-crafted at The Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, West Sussex, an establishment recognised as the world's premiere Global Centre of Luxury Manufacturing Excellence. The order books for this seminal Collection will close imminently.
