Rolls-Royce pays homage to South Korea with bespoke Ghost and Wraith special editions

In 2004, the British marque Rolls-Royce officially entered South Korea with the opening of their showroom located in Seoul before opening their second showroom last September in Busan. Now RR will have not only one, but two premium cars as a way of expressing thanks to the largest cities in the Asian country, Seoul and Busan, and to celebrate more than 10 years of congenial collaboration.

Giles Taylor, Rolls-Royce design director, said that this bespoke pair that they have created offer personal spaces that represent the vibrant cities that they occupy, showing the possibilities that the world's most famous luxury house can provide.

He added that like an elegant suit, some of the most appealing Bespoke touches found in a Rolls-Royce are invisible to anyone but its owner. Or they may uncover themselves only by chance to the audience, like the colourful lining of a jacket exposed by a gust of wind as these vehicles momentarily come to a halt in the city.

2017 Geneva Motor Show: Those are real diamonds on the Rolls-Royce Ghost Elegance

Rolls-Royce is well-known for displaying superior engineering quality in its models and for focusing on luxury cars. Despite being the symbol of elegance, one customer was apparently not satisfied and asked the automaker to have a customized version that is clearly ahead of the others. Fortunately, Rolls-Royce agreed to do the work and even better, the customer agreed to have it displayed during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Using the Ghost as a base version, the custom-made one is called the Ghost Elegance. So what makes this truly unique then? Well in addition to having the wheelbase extended, this limousine is covered in paint made from real diamonds. Dubbed as Diamond Stardust, the process of making this special paint involved crushing thousands of diamonds. It comes as no surprise then that the end product has the luster and glamor that is truly unmatched.

According to Rolls-Royce, this special finish is a result of two months of work done by specialists who looked at diamonds using microscopes in order to know how they would interact with the light. The fine diamond powder that they made was then mixed to clear paint. An addition layer of lacquer was then applied to it in order for it to have a smooth finish. Applying the paint took a total of two additional days compared to how much time the automaker uses in painting their other models.

Rolls-Royce unveils the new Ghost Majestic Horse

The Majestic Horse Collection from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has made its debut. This collection is timed with the celebration in 2014 of the Year of the Horse of the Chinese Zodiac. It is composed of a limited number of Bespoke Rolls-Royce Ghosts that were inspired by the classical interpretations of the horse in traditional Chinese art.

To design these cars, Rolls-Royce did a contemporary re-imagining of the traditional Chinese representation of the horse. It uses hand-crafted marquetry for the dash-board while embroidery was used for the headrest and cushions.

Its exterior received a delicate finish with the application of a horse motif to the twin coachlines. An ‘element’ is celebrated together with an animal according to Chinese cultures.

The FAB1, a Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase, was recently introduced by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. The FAB1 Million project, which Chris Evans oversees, was formed to raise £1 million for Breast Cancer Care by making it available for hiring over the next 12 months. This bespoke Ghost can be made to appear in exclusive events.

It can also be hired for a special event. All of its proceeds will benefit Breast Cancer Care. To support this project and highly admirable cause, the Rolls-Royce Bespoke team built a highly impressive motor car, merging multiple bespoke elements, ranging from pink accented umbrellas to hand-embroidered headrests that carry the Breast Cancer Care pink ribbon motif.

Additional improvements include the one-of-a-kind ‘FAB1’ treadplates and a Blushing Pink and Crème Light interior leather scheme. The silver satin bonnet features an uplit Spirit of Ecstasy. Aside from providing an excellent ride experience and adequate legroom, the passengers get an outstanding experience with its hand veneered picnic tables, 9.2 inch LCD screens and a champagne coolbox.

Tales of ‘The Arabian Nights Entertainment’ were the inspiration behind the Bespoke collection of Ghost family cars built by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Middle East. The Bespoke team at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England, created a range of two-tone paint schemes that drew on a warm colour palette that functioned as the ideal backdrop for hand-painted coachlines.

These cars feature details that were meticulously applied to convey the Arabic words ‘One Thousand and One Nights’ and conclude in an intricate design that frames its door handles. For centuries, the epic tales that Scheherazade told Shahryar have drawn the attention of storytellers and readers. These tales will forever be treated as one of the most renowned works of literature to come from the region.

According to Geoff Briscoe, Director Middle East, Africa and Latin America for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, a Rolls-Royce is the “perfect canvas” for these incredibly individual motoring masterpieces. The bespoke designers prove just how capable they are in delving into a rich culture with this collection.

To complete Rolls-Royce’s model range, it will need just one or two more Ghost offshoots, according to CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös. But he clarified that it’s unlikely that it will produce any extremely expensive specials that will rival the limited edition Ferrari Enzo’s styling.

The reasons it gave are that it may not meet the high standards of the current cars and that its existing bespoke business already provides the flexibility they require.

In an Autocar interview, Müller-Ötvös said that Rolls would never “chase volume” but that it expects to post an improvement to the record sales in 2011 of 3538 units with a figure nearer to 4000. Its deliveries last year increased by 31%, boosted by the high Ghost sales, says Autocar. It surpassed the older sales record set by the Silver Shadow II in 1978 of 3347 units.

The Race Director of the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed will be riding on a Ghost Extended Wheelbase, one of two Rolls-Royce press fleet cars taking part in the event this year. Ghost Extended Wheelbase is powered by a dynamic V12 direct-injection engine that transmits up to 563 hp of power to the wheels through an eight speed automatic gearbox, allowing the Race Director to manage the curves and hill climb at Goodwood at an easy pace.

Having midnight sapphire finish with a silver satin bonnet, the Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase could accelerate from zero to 62mph time in just five seconds.

The car’s superior ride qualities are primarily thanks to its double-wishbone front suspension and multi-link rear suspension combined with an intelligent, four cornered air-suspension system and electronic variable damping. The Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase is sure to please the world’s most exclusive customers with its hand-built interior flourishing with light, thanks to a panoramic sunroof.

A very special Rolls-Royce Ghost has been heavily praised at the Geneva Motor Show, where the Phantom Series II has also been launched. The special model is one of the initial samples of a two-tone Rolls-Royce Ghost, which is a customized option offered for the first time this year. The Geneva Ghost is finished in Infinity Black matched with a Cassiopeia Silver upper two-tone.

It has an interior design scheme that perfectly mirrors the two-tone theme. Sumptuous black leather and seashell headlining borders the black stained-ash veneer wherein steel pinstripes have been meticulously crafted. The luxurious finishing touch is lambswool floor mats.

A second Rolls-Royce Ghost with upper two-tone has been commissioned lately for delivery to a customer based in the Middle East.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, a brand of Germany's BMW AG, is expected to increase its sales in the second quarter by more than double, with the potential of its Ghost model identified as a major factor, Rolls-Royce president David Archibald in North America stated on Wednesday.

Last year, the Ghost model allowed the company to reach a worldwide sales record of 2,711 units in 2010, which was 167 percent greater than the previous year.

The model was priced at $246,500, lower than the Phantom, in the United States, and around 200,000 euros to 300,000 euros in Europe. According to Archibald, the Ghost has brought a more feasible business case in more cities.

Developed especially for the Chinese market, Rolls-Royce presented its Ghost Extended Wheelbase at the 2011 Auto Shanghai. Designed as a car to drive or in which to be chauffeured, Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase will offer more space with the addition of 170mm to the car’s wheelbase, which means more legroom for the passengers.

Under the bonnet we find the acclaimed Rolls-Royce Ghost 6.6 litre twin turbo charged V12 engine producing 563 hp and 780 Nm of torque at just 1,500rpm.

With these numbers, the Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.0 seconds. Still, the car is very comfortable thanks to an intelligent, four corner air suspension.

Rolls-Royce said that three variants of the new Ghost sedan are currently in the works. These include a stretched version, a drophead coupe and a coupe – which are expected to debut within the next three years. With these variants, Rolls-Royce lineup will comprise eight models. It has been confirmed previously by Rolls-Royce that the Ghost lends itself to new models.

The stretched version of the Ghost is slated to be the first to arrive. The extra length is added behind the B-pillar, needing a new roof and elongated rear doors. It’s expected that the wheelbase will grow by 5 or 6 inches, while the 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 powertrain is unchanged.

The two two-door models will follow; however, Rolls-Royce has yet to announce the order of their introduction. As their development is relatively predictable, there will be no concepts to preview the new models (the 2006 100EX previewed the Phantom Drophead Coupe).

Details about the 2011 Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase (EWB) are few but recently, spy shots have been taken in Germany of this remarkable vehicle. What is known so far is that the EWB features modified B-pillars and longer rear doors.

If the Ghost EWB is similar to the Phantom EWB, it will have a 250mm (9.8") stretch that means the car will be 5649mm (222.4") long with a 3545mm (139.6") wheelbase. If this information is accurate, this means that the Ghost EWB will be slightly shorter than the standard Phantom that measures 5840mm (229.9") long and rides on a 3570mm (140.6") wheelbase.

What this also indicates is that the Ghost EWB is slotted between the Bentley Mulsanne and the Rolls-Royce Phantom. The vehicle will be powered by a turbocharged 6.6-liter V12 engine with 563 bhp (420 kW / 570 PS) and 780 Nm (575 lb-ft) of torque.

To boost sales of Rolls-Royce’s ultraluxury nameplate double units, the carmaker will be expanding the Ghost model line. In an interview at its headquarters in Goodwood, England, Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes said that he is “quite confident” that there will soon be a Ghost derivative. He said that he believes in the market potential for a less formal model.

The Ghost, which has been available since last year, has a price tag of $245,000 and is Rolls-Royce's second product line after the Phantom, which is priced from $380,000.

Mueller-Oetvoes believes that the lower-priced model, which measures 5.4 meters (17.7 feet) in length, would increase operating profit.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has been known to manufacture cars that supply power differently compared to other autos in the market. Instead of increasing the pulse, Rolls-Royce cars are designed in such a way that decreases the pulse.

Of the different models the brand is offering, the Rolls-Royce Ghost may be its most powerful yet. Despite its simplicity, the Rolls-Royce Ghost owns a number of complex technologies and software ensuring that the drive is enjoyable and easier without being confusing or intruding.

Unlike previous models of the Rolls-Royce, the Ghost puts the main focus on the driver. The driver seat is a bit elevated giving a clearer view of the road while also exuding a position of authority inside the car. The facade meanwhile was intentionally made clear and spacious.

The British carmaker Rolls-Royce has recently started an internet site they are planning to utilize exclusively for their forthcoming Ghost model. The website is equipped with numerous highly attractive elements aimed at maintaining interest on the car for both potential buyers and those who are just curios.

Included in these special features are design and engineering essentials that went into the creation of the 200EX concept car, the concept variant of the Ghost, and also a visualizer where users can change the exterior and interior color combination of the original show car for user appreciation.

The current Ghost model comes with a very close likeness to the 200EX concept so that there's likelihood that the representation shown on the online visualizer will be the final production model available in different color options.
