Rolls-Royce Edinburgh are delighted to offer this Silver Ghost finished in Caspian Silver and completed with an exquisite Shelby Grey leather interior.
In 2018, Rolls-Royce announced the creation of a collection of 35 Rolls-Royce Ghosts to be created in homage to the original Silver Ghost’s achievement.
The “Silver Ghost” edition was assembled at the state of the art Rolls-Royce HQ in Goodwood, West Sussex. Back in 1907, Charles Rolls and Claude Johnson drove the 12th 40/50hp Ghost chassis mated to a Barker & Co 4/5 seater touring body an astonishing non-stop, long-distance endurance record of 14,371 miles. Among the unique touches to these bespoke barges are changes both sweeping and specific, including a special “Cassiopeia Silver” paint job that takes 8 hours to apply and incorporates 100% silver into the mixture.
Move in a bit closer and you’ll see a 100% sterling silver Spirit of Ecstasy muse engraved with “AX201” on the base in honor of the original Silver Ghost’s registration plate. It sits on a black-gold-plated collar base with copper insert that calls back to the copper used in the engine by of the original Silver Ghost. Additionally, the grille veins have been painted black in another callback to the original grille. Finally, the wheel centers have been engraved with “Silver Ghost – Since 1907.”
Owners are also treated with forest green leather and silver trim pieces throughout the cabin, including the panniers, clock, and tread plates, and the RR umbrellas in each door are edged in a silver-color binding with an open-pore, Tudor-oak handle. Additional touches include a Silver Ghost pen, sunglasses/accessories case and picnic hamper.
