Unique pair of Rolls inspired by the country's two largest cities.
Celebrating over a decade in the country, Rolls-Royce has created a pair of bespoke models for South Korea, inspired by the country’s largest cities of Seoul and Busan. Both cars are one-off creations. The Rolls-Royce Ghost Seoul Edition is finished in traditional Korean colors that feature on the country’s Taegukgi national flag. Andalusian White adorns the exterior with a twin coachline in Cobalto Blue and Mugello Red, elegantly finished with a hand-painted motif of the Namsan Seoul Tower in silhouette.
These colors also form pinstripes on the circumference of the wheel centers. A ‘Black tie with a twist’ theme has been applied to the interior, with the black leather contrasted with Arctic White and the same red and blue as used on the body. Other unique flourishes include bespoke treadplates, dark tinted rear windows, massage seats boasting headrest cushions embossed with ‘RR’ monograms, a Starlight Headliner, rear seat picnic tables and a Piano Black fascia inlayed in silver with the Seoul Tower motif. The Rolls-Royce Wraith Busan celebrates the coast city with a Royal Blue and Jubilee Silver two-tone exterior complete with a Blushing Pink single coachline.
Apparently, this draws the eye “to the contours of the vehicle just as the pink of the sky behind the mountain ranges at dusk ripples across the glass of the city’s buildings, or the warm hues of the night-time illuminations of the Gwangandaegyo suspension bridge dance in the waters of the bay. On the prow sits an illuminated Spirit of Ecstasy, adding further radiance.” The rear pillar motif is a geometrical pattern inspired by traditional Korean ‘hanok’ screen doors, the delicate latticework that’s reflected in skyscrapers of the city. The interior boasts Selby Grey leather seats with Cobalto and Navy Blue with touches of pink, while the motif sits in the center of the fascia and acts as an abstract embroidery on the leather waterfall between the rear seats.
“It is with great pride that we introduce these glorious one-off vehicles,” added Paul Harris, Regional Director for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Asia Pacific. “Korea is a passionate and dynamic country with which we share an appreciation for continually moving forward while respecting traditional craftsmanship. Our customers are leaders of industry and entertainment and we hope this will inspire their creativity in rewarding themselves with truly rare and individual vehicles.”
