Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Collection Is An Exquisite Tribute To “The Best Car In The World”

Limited Edition / 12 Comments

Only 35 examples will be built.

Earlier this year, Rolls-Royce previewed the Silver Ghost Collection, and now the luxurious limited-edition model has been revealed in all its exquisite glory. Limited to just 35 examples, the new Silver Ghost Collection is a tribute to the original Silver Ghost launched in 1907 that was hailed as "the best car in the world" by the media at the time. It earned its reputation for setting a non-stop long-distance endurance record of 14,371 miles, which was an unprecedented achievement and is still impressive today.

Based on the 2018 Rolls-Royce Ghost, each special edition model features a solid sterling-silver Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament surrounded by gold-plated collar made of hammered copper as a nod to the copper extensively used in the engine bay of the original Silver Ghost. Each of the 35 Silver Ghost Collection cars will also has an AX201 Hallmark on the base of the ornament as a reference to the original car's license plate number. Every example is also finished in Cassiopeia Silver paint and has a black Pantheon grille mimicking the 1907 Silver Ghost.

Inside, the Forest Green interior with silver-tipped leather replicates the original Silver Ghost's cockpit. Even the clock has a reference to the original car, engraved with 'Silver Ghost Since 1907' lettering. The same lettering has also been engraved onto the wheel centers. No pricing details have been revealed, but we suspect all 35 models have already been sold to some extremely wealthy clients.

"Careful consideration has been paid to the Collection's defining features," said Matthew Butt, Product Manager at Rolls-Royce. "References extoling the past are skilfully hand-crafted into Ghost's interior and exterior, creating a contemporary homage which speaks as much of today's great brand as the original Silver Ghost does of its day. This is a truly remarkable Collection."
