To celebrate the original Silver Ghost – the model that first established its maker’s ‘Best Car in the World’ reputation – Rolls-Royce has announced a limited collection of just 35 bespoke Ghosts, named as the Silver Ghost Collection. And as you’d expect from such a limited run, these latest variations on the Ghost theme offer a number of special features.
SPECIAL EDITION GHOST
A solid sterling-silver Spirit of Ecstasy is featured, for example, uniquely boasting a specially created hallmark of AX201 (the most famous Silver Ghost registration number of all time) on its base, around which sits a black-gold- plated collar. An insert is crafted from hammered copper, in tribute to the copper extensively used in the engine bay of the original Silver Ghost, and this is also engraved with the newly designed AX201 hallmark.
Matthew Butt, Ghost product manager at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, commented: “Careful consideration has been paid to the Collection’s defining features. References extolling the past are skillfully hand-crafted into Ghost’s interior and exterior, creating a contemporary homage which speaks as much of today’s great brand as the original Silver Ghost does of its day.”
