The last of the Ghost: Rolls-Royce Ghost Zenith Collection unveiled

By Divyank Kushagra Bansal | on August 16, 2019

The Rolls-Royce Ghost Zenith Edition marks the end of the ten-year tenure of one of Rolls-Royce's most successful models to date.

Since the Rolls-Royce Ghost made its debut way back in 2009, it has gone on to become one of Rolls-Royce's most successful motor cars ever to be built. The carmaker takes great pride in the fact that the Ghost helped bring down the average age of a Rolls-Royce customer down to 43 years. Thus, as the Ghost is on the verge of completing its ten-year tenure, Rolls-Royce has introduced a limited-edition Zenith Collector's Edition of the super-luxury saloon, which will consist of just 50 units. This kind of privilege was last extended to the Phantom VII in 2016 when the company had produced an equal number Phantom VII Zeniths to celebrate the end of its production life.

What makes the Ghost Zenith Edition different from its standard counterparts is the flurry of bespoke design elements that have been added to the car's exterior & interior. Inside, special attention has been paid to the doors, which feature illuminated door pockets. Further, the ambient lighting in the doors unveils the intricate veneer inlay work done by the craftsmen by hand. The inlay work can be ordered in three distinct finishes: Wood, Technical Fibre or Piano. The embroidery on the rear & front seats of the Ghost Zenith Edition pays homage to the original 1907 Silver Ghost.

Further, the Standard Wheelbase version of Ghost Zenith Edition gets the brand's famed Starlight headliner featuring a bespoke 'Shooting Star' configuration. The 1,340 individually-mapped, hand-woven fibre optic lights create a random shooting star effect across the cabin roof. Another key highlight of the Ghost Zenith Collection is the fact that each of the 50 units features commemorative ingot, made from the melted-down Spirit of Ecstasy of the original 200EX Concept of 2009. The resulting plaque is located on the car's centre console.

Much like its Phantom counterpart, the ghost Zenith Edition also gets a special two-tone gloss-contrast paint finish. The paint finish is available in three colour combinations: Iguazu Blue with Andalusian White, Premiere Silver with Arctic White or a Bohemian Red with Black Diamond.

Sharing his thoughts on the Zenith Collection, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of 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 order books for the Ghost Zenith Collector's Edition are officially open.
