Rolls-Royce celebrates the remarkable ten-year tenure of the Ghost by unveiling the extremely limited Zenith Collector’s Edition. The Rolls-Royce Ghost Zenith is limited to just 50 units and offers the highest level of bespoke features on the car. The only previous occasion on which discerning collectors around the world have been afforded this privilege was when an equally limited number of Phantom VII Zeniths were created in 2016 to celebrate the end of its extraordinarily long and successful reign.
The "Ghost" nameplate, named in honour of the Silver Ghost, a car first produced in 1906, was announced on April 2009 at the Auto Shanghai show. The production model of the Ghost was officially unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. The Rolls-Royce 200EX concept, showcased on March 2009 at the Geneva Motor Show, indicated the styling direction of the production model Ghost. The Ghost Zenith Collection draws many references from 200EX, which includes ingot in the interior made from the original concept car’s Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament. The Collection’s own Spirit of Ecstasy and clock are engraved with the name of this highly anticipated collection.
The interior offers distinctive ultra-premium features like ambient light emitting through perforated leather and illuminated door pockets. A complex piece of marquetry is hard to miss and it is 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 to Ghost. The rear seats feature embroidery takes its inspiration from the seat details of the original 1907 Silver Ghost. 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.
The Ghost Zenith Collection’s exterior styling includes - a special two-tone application with a gloss-contrast paint finish. Customers can 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 handcrafted model is produced at the home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, West Sussex.
