Pune: Rolls-Royce, the British super luxury car-marker, has unveiled the Rolls-Royce Ghost Zenith, a sedan, offering the highest level of bespoke features on the car.

The new collector's edition of the Rolls-Royce Ghost is restricted to just 50 units for the global market.

 

It marks 10 years of the current generation model before the all-new generation model arrives and is expected to make its debut next year.

“The Ghost Zenith Collection presents an entirely forward-looking study of the unique characteristics that have seen Ghost ascend to the status of the most progressive super-luxury saloon ever conceived,” Torsten Muller-Otvos, Chief Executive Officer at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said.

“Ghost is the most successful Rolls-Royce ever created and the Zenith Collection marks an important milestone in our modern history,” he boasted.

Ghost Zenith will be powered by the same 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 petrol engine that pumps out 563bhp and 820Nm of torque. Paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission, the Rolls Royce Ghost is capable of doing 0-100 kmph in just 4.8 seconds. The new saloon will be produced at the company's facility in Goodwood, West Sussex in the UK.

 

Rolls-Royce has not revealed prices on the Ghost Zenith edition, but you can expect them to be substantial higher than the standard version. Order books are now open for the limited edition models. The starting price of the standard Rolls-Royce Ghost in India is Rs 6.21 crore and goes up to Rs 7 crore for the top-end extended wheelbase version.

On the Zenith edition, the interior gets an ingot placed on the centre console made from the original concept car's Spirit of Ecstacy hood ornament that has been melted down.

The ingot is engraved with three key design lines of Ghost and the plaque details its significant origins. The Collection's own Spirit of Ecstasy and clock are engraved with the name - Zenith edition.

 

The swan song for the Ghost also features an engraving of a blueprint-like work on each of the 50 Zenith editions that have been enlarged to a point of abstraction and will be split into 50 parts for each of the limited editions models.

The uber luxurious saloon will also come with perforated leather that will be applied to the door panels along with illuminated door pockets, while there will be various types of wood trims on offer inside the lavish cabin.
