Production will be limited to just 50 units.
After being in production for ten years, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is about to be replaced by a new second-generation model. But before then, Rolls-Royce is giving the luxury sedan a special send-off with the new limited-edition Rolls-Royce Ghost Zenith Collection.
The Rolls-Royce Ghost was first introduced as a concept called the 200EX at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show before entering production the same year. Since then, the Ghost has become the luxury brand’s most successful model and helped reduce the average age of a Rolls-Royce customer to around 43, so it’s only fitting that the Ghost Zenith Collection is the most lavish version of the luxury sedan yet.
According to Rolls-Royce, the Ghost Zenith Collection features "the highest levels of Bespoke ever seen on a Ghost Collection car.” Limited to just 50 units, the Ghost Zenith Collection features design touches inspired by the 200EX such as a commemorative plague in the center console made from melted-down metal from the original 200EX Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament engraved with key design lines of Ghost and details about the car’s origins. The Spirit of Ecstasy and clock are also engraved with the Zenith Collector’s Edition name.
Elsewhere, Rolls-Royce has added illuminated door pockets emitting ambient light into the luxurious cabin. The rear seats have contrasting leather and embroidery inspired by the seat details of the original 1907 Silver Ghost, transitioning from the rear to the front of the cabin. Long wheelbase versions have a headliner resembling the silhouette of the Spirit of Ecstasy, while short wheelbase versions feature starlight headliner with a unique Shooting Star configuration with over 1,340 individually mapped and hand-woven fibre optic lights.
Like the Phantom Zenith Collectionlaunched in 2016, the Ghost Zenith Collection has a two-tone exterior with a gloss-contrast paint finish. Three color combinations are available: Iguazu Blue with Andalusian White, Premiere Silver with Arctic White or a Bohemian Red with Black Diamond, with multiple variants available. The Silver Satin hood was first seen on 200EX.
Rolls-Royce hasn’t supplied any pricing details, but the standard Ghost starts at $311,900. The Ghost Zenith Collection will only be available or a limited time, as Rolls-Royce says the order books will be closing imminently before the next-generation model arrives in 2020.
