Rolls Royce has revealed the Ghost Zenith Edition. The cars mark the end of a 10-year run that has seen the Ghost become the most successful Rolls-Royce in the company’s history.The Rolls Royce Ghost Zenith Edition will be limited to just 50 examples.
Ghost is a luxury icon that carries with it a rich and extraordinary past. From the Silver Ghost, the motor car that established the moniker of ‘The Best Car in the World’ over 100 years ago, to 200EX, the experimental car that introduced the concept of a contemporary expression of this nameplate at the Geneva Motor Show in 2009, Ghost has offered patrons of the marque a modern, lithe and driver-focused Rolls-Royce.
When production of Ghost began in 2009, patrons across the world were drawn to its elegant lines and dynamic offering and it quickly became, and remains to this day, the most successful Rolls-Royce motor car ever to be built, attracting a new group of young entrepreneurs to the marque. Indeed, the reduction in average age of a Rolls-Royce customer to around 43 is in part testament to Ghost’s global success.
The Ghost Zenith Collection will feature a dash plaque made from the actual Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament that featured on the 200EX concept car unveiled in 2009 to preview the Ghost. The hood ornament was melted down and molded into 50 individual plaques with inscriptions highlighting their significance.
The Rolls Royce Ghost Zenith Collection gets its exclusive Spirit Of Ecstasy that has the tag ‘Ghost Zenith’ engraved on it. The Zenith is available in three dual-tone color options with a gloss-contrast paint finish – Iguazu Blue with Andalusian White, Premiere Silver with Arctic White or a daring Bohemian Red with Black Diamond.
The Rolls Royce Ghost Zenith has illuminated door pockets and ambient lighting that emanates from the leather upholstery on the door pads. Then there’s a blueprint inspired artwork that has been engraved onto the centre trim and features an ingot made from the original 200EX’s Spirit of Ecstasy. The Zenith Edition also gets its exclusive clock with the name Zenith engraved in it. The engraving can also be found on the door sills and the ingot on the centre trim.
The famed starlight headliner of Rolls Royce Ghost Zenith Collection is presented in a unique Shooting Star configuration. Shooting stars fire at random across the cabin roof, adding an extraordinary sense of theatre. This surprise and delight feature consists of over 1,340 individually mapped and hand-woven fiber optic lights.
Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “The Ghost Zenith Collection presents an entirely forward-looking study of the unique characteristics that have seen Ghost ascend to the status of the most progressive super-luxury saloon ever conceived. This unique Collection provides patrons of the marque with a rare opportunity to own a motor car truly evocative of our time. Ghost is the most successful Rolls-Royce ever created and the Zenith Collection marks an important milestone in our modern history.”
The Rolls Royce Ghost Zenith Collection models will be powered by the same 6.6 litre twin-turbo V12 petrol engine mated to a 8-speed automatic transmission which churns out 563 BHP and 820 Nm of Peak Torque. The powertrain is routed to the rear wheels and does 0-100 Km/hr in just 4.9 seconds. The top speed of Ghost Zenith Collection is electronically limited to 250 Km/hr.
Unlike all Rolls Royce models, the Ghost Zenith can also be customized with various interior colors and trims of your choice. Rolls will also customize that artwork on the centre console to your personal taste if you desire!.The Ghost Zenith will be available in standard and extended-wheelbase forms and feature the same mechanicals as the regular Ghost.
Pricing of the Rolls Royce Ghost Zenith Edition haven’t been released yet. We expect the Ghost Zenith Edition to be priced higher than the current selling Rolls Royce Ghost standard wheelbase version. Once production of the 50 cars is complete, Rolls-Royce will prepare for the new Ghost based on the same aluminum space-frame platform found in the Phantom and Cullinan. The next-gen Rolls Royce Ghost is expected to launch globally by 2021.
