The first in a series of special Arabian edition Rolls-Royce Ghosts is set to be unveiled later this month in Sharjah, UAE.
Of all of Middle Eastern folklore, few tales captivate quite like Scheherezade's "One Thousand and One Arabian Nights". The centuries-old story is so iconic, in fact, that Rolls-Royce has taken it as the inspiration for its latest series of special editions. Based on the Rolls-Royce Ghost, the Bespoke series will breed three special editions, starting with the one you see here. Decked out in two shades of brown, the Arabian Nights edition Ghost features hand-painted coachlines.
The Arabic title "Kitab alf laylah wa-laylah" is scripted into the special Ghost's design, along with other elegant symbols of Arabic caligraphy. This particular example also features a white perforated leather interior and thick-pile white carpeting, which ought to age well in the market in which this model is being introduced. This first example is to be unveiled at the Sharjah Auto Show in the United Arab Emirates later this month, with the subsequent two members of the collection to be revealed next year.
