The world’s first Bespoke Rolls Royce Ghost in ‘Arizona Sun’ exterior color went to RR’s dealer in Abu Dhabi and was sold directly upon arrival to the showroom. This unique Roller is also the first Bespoke Ghost commission to be released from Goodwood and its exterior color inspired by Arizona desert is complemented by tan leather interior.
UAE has been the biggest market for Bespoke Programme since its introduction. Rolls-Royce’s discerning Abu Dhabi clientele are renowned for ordering the richest bespoke specifications in the entire world. The Bespoke team at Goodwood is dedicated to finding new paints, materials and engineering solutions in order to find new ways to develop truly unique and exceptional cars.
Priding itself in understanding customers’ tastes, Abu Dhabi Motors and Rolls-Royce designers have gone to great lengths to define the aesthetics of this exclusive vehicle “The Ghost is a modern execution of timeless Rolls-Royce elegance, widening its appeal beyond the purely traditional whilst retaining the core values that make the Rolls-Royce brand unique. As the second best selling dealership worldwide, Abu Dhabi Motors continually strives to deliver excellence – from unique vehicles, to the quality of services to uncompromising clientele. The arrival of the world’s first Arizona Sun Ghost is one version of this dedication,” explained Arno Husselmann, General Manager of Abu Dhabi Motors.
Rolls-Royce’s latest model is a vision of simplicity, taking the core values of Rolls-Royce and creating contemporary effortless luxury. Achieving a new dynamism while remaining true to its heritage, the Bespoke Ghost commission projects a more informal presence than the Phantom with greater emphasis on driving.
Preserving the prerequisite levels of comfort while delivering the most modern, dynamically interesting drive ever in a Rolls-Royce, the Ghost is powered by a brand new, 6.6 litre twin-turbo V12 engine, unique to the Ghost model. Featuring direct injection, it produces 563bhp – enough to propel Ghost from 0-60 mph in just 4.7 seconds and on to an electronically governed top speed of 155mph. With 780 Nm of torque available at just 1,500rpm, delivery of power is immediate and extremely smooth.
The Ghost is the most powerful car that Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has ever produced. However, Rolls-Royce power is delivered in a very different manner to other cars. It moves in an elegant, cosseting way that some have described as being designed to lower the pulse, not raise it. This unique delivery of power has become an engineering signature, seemingly effortless and endless.
The design of the Ghost is founded in simplicity and elegance. Inspired by the 1930’s, including its contempary furniture, architeture, yachts and spirit – its sense of adventure and endeavour – Ghost exudes an informal aura, blending flowing lines and powerful definition with traditional Rolls-Royce design cues such as elevated prow and long bonnet.
This Bespoke commission was designed in-house and developed on site by craftsmen at the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars plant in Goodwood, England.
