Nope, this is not a new Roller bound for Geneva Motor Show debut. Rolls-Royce Ghost Mysore Collection is another limited edition ‘Bespoke’ model designed for Abu Dhabi only, even though it gets its name from an Indian Sultan.
Mysore, says Rolls-Royce, was an 18th century Indian sultanate ruled by Tipu Sultan. It was the perfect the name for this new special Ghost, since Mysore in Arabic refers to wealth and power – two things you need to posses in order to afford a Bespoke Rolls-Royce!
That name also lends a good deal coolness to the Rolls-Royce Ghost Mysore Collection, as Tipu Sultan, apparently, was a total badass of a dude. He’s been quoted as saying: “In this world I would rather live two days like a tiger, than two hundred years like a sheep.”
Limited to just three units, Rolls-Royce Ghost Mysore Collection comes only as an Extended Wheelbase model featuring a gold coach line adorned with peacock emblems, custom wheels, a gold spirit of ecstasy, special wood trimming on the inside, bespoke sill plates, and of course, four tigers embroidered on the headrests. That last feature alone was enough to sell these cars to Arabs. They just love tigers over there. Some of them even have tiger pets.
