Ultra exclusive Rolls-Royce Ghost Zenith revealed
15th Aug 2019 9:00 am
The special-edition model will be limited to 50 units and features high levels of customisation and design nods to the original 2009 200EX concept.
Rolls-Royce has unveiled the Ghost Zenith Collector’s Edition, which offers the highest level of bespoke features on the car to date. Limited to just 50 examples, the British firm says it offers more bespoke options than any model, apart from the 2016 limited-run Phantom Zenith. The special edition is intended as the ultimate version of the current Ghost, before the new model arrives next year.
The Ghost Zenith features a number of design details inspired by the 2009 200EX concept that previewed the Ghost. They include an ingot in the interior made from the original concept car’s Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament. A section of artwork showing technical details of the 200EX has been engraved in the centre console, too.
The Spirit of Ecstasy and clock of the Ghost Zenith are both engraved with its name. There are new perforated leather illuminated door pockets to emit light into the cabin, while the contrasting leather seats feature embroidery inspired by seat details in the 1907 Silver Ghost.
The Ghost Zenith retains the model’s illuminated ‘starlight headliner’, but a new ‘shooting star’ design note has been introduced to add “an extraordinary sense of theatre”. It features gloss contrast two-tone paintwork that’s available in three colour pairings, and a Silver Satin bonnet as used on the 200EX.
The Ghost Zenith will be available in standard- and extended-wheelbase forms and feature the same mechanicals as the regular Ghost, including the 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 petrol engine.
Pricing has not been disclosed but is likely to be substantially higher than the price for the current standard-wheelbase version.
