Following the footsteps of their sister company BMW Abu Dhabi, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Abu Dhabi is now shoeing off the most unique cars they get at the showroom. They are going to be showing off more often, as each Roller that rolls in there is unique more ways than one. Both companies are owned by Abu Dhabi Motors.
This Purple Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II, for example, is probably the only one in the world right now with this color combo. The exterior color on this car is Purple Silk Metallic and the interior Creme Light. The bonnet is brushed aluminum, and the RR grille, as usual, hand-polished steel.
Abu Dhabi’s Purple Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II is powered by a BMW 6.6 litre twin-turbo V12 tuned by RR to make less noise and work smoother. It makes 560 horsepower, there and thereabout, and works in tandem with a 8-speed ZF gearbox.
It’s a Satellite Aided Transmission which utilises GPS data to allow the car to see beyond what the driver sees, anticipating their next move based on location and driving style. For example when approaching a sweeping bend, the car will predict how you wish to drive through it. When the driver lifts the accelerator it will hold the lower gear to ensure maximum power is available on accelerating through the exit of a corner.
