Rolls-Royce has announced a limited series GhostFebruary 27, 2018
The circulation of the special series dedicated to the anniversary of the model Silver Ghost 1907, will be 35 units.
The British manufacturer announced the revival of the Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost model this year. The company plans to release a Bespoke collection of 35 Ghost cars in honor of the Silver Ghost in 1907.
Work on the original Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost began in 1904 with the joint efforts of Charles Rolls, Claude Johnson and Sir Henry Royce. The car was ready in 1907 and passed a record test run of 14,371 miles without breakage.
The cars from the Silver Ghost Collection will have a number of features. To make a figure of the “Spirit of Ecstasy”, decorating the hood of every Rolls-Royce since 1911, sterling silver will be used, and on the basis of each will be stamped AX201, which repeats the number plate of the original Silver Ghost. Round the pedestal of the figure will be made a black and gold bezel of chased copper with a similar brand AX201, referring to the copper elements of the engine compartment of the original car. The bodies of cars will be painted in a silver shade of Cassiopeia Silver and decorated with a decorative line with the addition of particles of pure silver, applied by the Rolls-Royce masters manually for 8 hours. The black radiator grille will repeat the features of the original grille in 1907, and along the circumference of the central part of the wheel the same color as the body will be engraved – SILVER GHOST – SINCE 1907.
On the doors there will be leather elements in the shade of Forest Green based on the original. And for finishing the pockets in the front and back doors will be used leather with impregnations of silver, while on the front panel, the wooden trim of the inside of the doors and the trunk will appear silver inserts and a plate with the brand name RR.
The finishing touch will be the exclusive collection for the Silver Ghost picnic from the Rolls-Royce accessories line, designed to provide “luxurious outdoor dining conditions”.
Cars of the Silver Ghost series will be built on the basis of the standard Ghost 2018 model year. Recall that the car is equipped with a turbocharged V12 engine of 6.6 liters (N74B66) with a payback of 604 hp. and 840 Nm of torque.
By the way, the volume of sales of Rolls-Royce last year decreased by 16.2% and amounted to 3,362 units. The fall is explained by the change in the generations of Phantom – the old one was no longer sold, and the new one was introduced only in July 2017, whereas the first deliveries began only in January 2018.
The next novelty of the British brand will be the SUV Rolls-Royce Cullinan, which is likely to significantly revitalize sales. Note that it will implement a number of original solutions, for example, special seating.
