ROLLS-ROYCE GHOST RAISES THE TWO-TONE IN GENEVA

While the launch of Phantom Series II has been making headlines  centre stage at the Geneva motor show, a very special Rolls-Royce  Ghost has also been winning admirers in the company’s exclusive  on-stand guest lounge. Clients, dealers and media guests have been  delighted by the presentation of one of the first examples of a  two-tone Rolls-Royce Ghost, a bespoke option offered for the first  time this year, complementing the popularity of two-tone Phantom models.

Finished in Infinity Black, with a Cassiopeia Silver upper two-tone,  the Geneva Ghost features an interior design scheme that perfectly  reflects the two-tone theme. Seashell headlining and sumptuous black  leather frames black stained ash veneer into which steel pinstripes  have been carefully crafted. The final luxury touch is lambswool floor  mats into which feet are easily lost at the end of a hard day walking  the Geneva halls.

“Whether Ghost or Phantom, any Rolls-Royce is a work of art,  taking its place in our clients’ luxury collections alongside  yachts, helicopters and fine jewellery,” said Torsten  Müller-Ötvös, CEO Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “So I  am delighted that we are now able to offer two-tone options for Ghost  as well as for Phantom, features that once again extend the palette  upon which a Rolls-Royce masterpiece can be painted.”

A second upper two-tone Rolls-Royce Ghost has recently been  commissioned for delivery to a client based in the Middle East. This  striking colour scheme starts with Baynunah Brown, with Arizona Sun  bathing the car’s bonnet, window surrounds, roof and luggage  compartment. A gold-plated Spirit of Ecstasy and double coach-line in  gold finish the design.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars celebrated a record sales result in 2011 with  3,538 models delivered to clients worldwide, beating the previous  sales record held in 1978 when 3,347 units were sold, a period during  which Rolls-Royce was under different ownership. 2011 also marked a  record for the Rolls-Royce Bespoke personalisation programme, a  service with Rolls-Royce’s legendary hand-craftsmanship and  attention to detail at its core. Nearly every Phantom family model  leaving the Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood came with some element of  bespoke personalisation, from unique paint colours, interior detailing  and embroidery, to exquisite whole vehicle designs including champagne  sets, humidors and picnic sets.
