Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has long been considered as the leader when it comes to luxury goods. For this particular market however, there are a number of products that can enthrall one, or maybe two, senses. However to captivate all of the five senses, it takes a hand-built car to make it possible. Dubbed as the Ghost Six Senses, this luxurious and custom-made concept car not only manages to capture the rich experiences one expects from a Rolls-Royce, it also brings sensory experience to new heights.
Indeed, by going near this concept car and opening the coach doors, all of the five senses are instantly ignited. Once inside, this delightful feel continues given the different special bespoke modifications and the lavish, soft leather with nothing but the finest of veneer detailing. Let’s start with sight. This elegant and beautiful luxury car is clearly pleasing to look at.
Fitted with forged alloy wheels, this is complemented with the pearlescent Carrara White finish. The rich detailing on the interior is bound to catch one’s eye at once when entering the doors. To give a clue as to the amount of power available, there is the diagonally placed cross-branding in brown oak and the Walnut Burr veneer with its deep luster. Up next is touch. Let’s start with the opulent and chrome leather and go all the way to the veneers, Rolls-Royce models have been the best tactile way to go on those ultra-luxurious trips.
However for the Ghost Six Senses, this is taken to a whole new level as for the first time, natural grain leather has been included. Its deep pile lambswool rug invites occupants to immerse their feet to it. When trying to store in that bespoke luggage, the boot can be opened using a remote opener and the excellent feel is heightened especially upon seeing the lining is made of lambswool. Third sense is aroma and by making use of the best materials for the interior, this allows Rolls-Royce models to have that unique scent.
The rich aroma that enters the nose once the doors are opened is courtesy of the natural soft grain leather fitted on the hand-crafted seats. Enhancing the scent is the walnut veneer which gives off a woody spice hint. Sound is another important sense as when it comes to Rolls-Royce, silence has been its major feature for a century now.
However, during the 21st century, the brand came up with the Phantom and Ghost models which were equipped with the latest systems in order to provide music in a striking fashion. Inside the Ghost Six Senses, a concept audio system has been placed wherein the amplifier has been modified in order to fill the rear cabin with excellent sound. Meanwhile the leather headlining now has “exciter” speakers inside which ensure that the center of sound is close to the ear of the occupant. Finally, there is taste, which is unlikely in a car.
For the Ghost Six Senses, the panoramic sunroof makes sure that the rear cabin gets that needed light, allowing those sitting in this area to be more relaxed and do so with style. Occupants who want to get the full experience, vintage champagne can be stored in the coolbox which itself has that wonderful sound-wave etching. Talking about the Ghost Six Senses, Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös shared that this concept car was designed to have a luxurious environment that would appeal even to the most discerning customers.
It not only serves to pleasure the senses, he continued, but also puts you in a place that is way beyond the interior. Just a few moments in this model and you will not only feel relaxed but get to experience what is truly difficult to define but which Rolls-Royce loyal customers have long known, he added.
CEO Müller-Ötvös said further that the best description for the Ghost Six Senses is that it is like an aura, considering that the hand-crafted interior is the best expression of both the heart and the soul of the person who made it. This is the sixth sense that is uniquely Rolls-Royce and is represented well in this concept car. Overall, the Ghost Six Senses is able to redefine a simple truth which is that a Rolls-Royce will always more than simply be the sum of its parts, he concluded.
