Bay Area Rolls Silver Wraith Rentals | San Francisco Travel Blog
Legendary luxury automaker Rolls-Royce recently announced that they are releasing a very limited number of special edition Ghost models. The automaker has been flexible about some very unusual customer requests over the years, but the newest special edition is among the most memorable for reasons that will either delight or dismay you. Rolls has announced that they will be customizing a handful of vehicles in what they are calling the One Thousand and One Nights Bespoke Ghost Collection.
The Rolls-Royce Bespoke Department is the division responsible for filling customers’ customization requests, and we have written about some of the more unusual requests over the years. Various Rolls models painted in canary yellow, neon purple and other eye-catching colors are fairly light lifting for the Bespoke craftspeople, but this latest Ghost customization scheme inspired them to take some creative license with color schemes. Bespoke craftspeople will take a few stock Ghost models and paint the lower body panels a deep matte brown. The gracefully sloping hood and pillars, essentially everything above the character line and the Ghost’s grille will be painted a matte caramel color.
Some light grey pinstriping will accent the matte paint job, and a number of small appliqués, including an Arabic inscription that spells out “One Thousand and One Nights,” will be strategically located on the exterior. Moving inside, Rolls customization experts have chosen light grey leather for the seating, accented by piano black trim. Passengers will enjoy the standard LCD screens in the back of the front seats, as well as all the usual luxurious Rolls appointments, including an updated, state-of-the-art sound system perhaps for enjoying all 1,001 folk tales supposedly related by Scheherazade.
Rolls has been reluctant to reveal precisely how many special Ghost editions they will make available or the expected list price, but buyers can expect to pay well over the $261,000 cost for base model Ghosts. The One Thousand and One Nights collection is expected to make its debut at the Sharjah International Auto Show in the United Arab Emirates in late November, and Rolls has announced there will be two more special Ghost models with this motif available next year.
Whether you like the matte brown paint scheme or not, a new Rolls-Royce Ghost is a pleasure to behold. It is even more of a pleasure to ride in!

A statement released by Rolls-Royce has announced that the legendary automaker is considering production of an electric-powered limo in the near future. A recent uptick in sales of its luxury vehicles, a remarkable 171 percent in challenging economic times, and the corresponding influx of capital has inspired Rolls to explore new technologies. While the company has made no official announcement regarding when a prototype could be ready, industry watchdogs speculate that the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London is the target date. It makes sense that the world-class automaker would seek out a world-class event for maximum marketing potential. BMW has already announced that the London Games will be the coming-out party for their new environmentally friendly class of luxury cars.
