Rolls-Royce Ghost

Every August the Monterey Peninsula plays host to what is arguably  the most prestigious automotive concours event in the world, the  Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Highlighted by warm ocean breezes  and meticulously manicured golf courses, the event draws the best of  the best of both historic and experimental vehicles from around the  globe. The weekend kicks off on Friday with Quail, a Motorsports  Gathering featuring the newest limited edition and concept vehicles.

In celebration, the one of a kind 2013 Ghost Extended Wheelbase  unveiled at Quail shows a sampling of what is possible when  commissioning your Rolls-Royce with the creative assistance of the  craftsmen and women of the Bespoke department at the Home of  Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Goodwood, England.

A contrasting upper two-tone paint scheme sparkles with Carrara White  over Mazarine Blue offset by a Mandarin Orange twin feature line.  Opening the coach doors, one is greeted by polished tread plates with  Pebble Beach and the Orange Poppy, the official flower of California  and native to the Monterey peninsula.

The poppy theme is carried through to hand monogrammed headrests and  the veneered dash inlay. Seashell and Navy Blue contrasting leather is  highlighted by Navy Blue piping and two-tone contrasting instrument  panel. A Navy Blue clock is set into Crossbanded Walnut Burr Veneer,  both available for the first time on 2013 Ghost.

Individual ventilated rear seating with massage feature and theater  entertainment offer a space to relax while enjoying a drink from the coolbox.

For 2013, Ghost is further enhanced with new features providing an  even greater experience for both driver and passenger in comfort and  technology. A perforated leather headliner is available with the  standard Panorama Sunroof on Ghost Extended Wheelbase for the first  time enhancing the light and airy feel of the cabin.

Natural Grain leather, the softest, most luxurious leather,  previously only available on Phantom is available as an option on  Ghost for the first time in 2013. When chosen, natural grain leather  covers the seats, upper and lower instrument panel, instrument panel  sides, door trim and center armrest and rear hat tray.

Night Vision with person recognition will pretension the brakes,  alongside the audible and visual pedestrian warnings, in the event  that sudden braking is required. Comfort Access now includes a Smart  Boot Opener function. Approaching the rear of the car, a simple leg  movement triggers the opening of the boot without the need to press  any buttons.

2013 Ghost arrives in showrooms coinciding with the Pebble Beach  Concours D’Elegance weekend.
