Rolls Royce Ghost is going out of production pretty soon. Its replacement has already been spotted out testing, and will arrive in late 2020. In the meantime, the people in Goodwood are focused on breathing some more life into the Ghost, as everyone is focused on the Cullinan these days. They decided to do so by launching an exclusive collection under the Ghost Zenith name.
The Rolls-Royce Ghost was first introduced as a concept called the 200EX at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show before entering production the same year. Since then, the Ghost has become the luxury brand’s most successful model and helped reduce the average age of a Rolls-Royce customer to around 43, so it’s only fitting that the Ghost Zenith Collection is the most lavish version of the luxury sedan yet.
The dash plaque is joined by a surrounding insert featuring a section of an enlarged blueprint drawing for the Ghost. Each car in the Ghost Zenith Collection will feature a different section of the blueprint for a touch of exclusivity. Further special touches of the collection include an engraved clock and Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament, plus illuminated door pockets and door liners capped with complex pieces of marquetry.
The standard powertrain in the Ghost is a 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V-12. It generates 563 horsepower and 605 pound-feet of torque, which is routed to the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic.
Rolls-Royce hasn’t supplied any pricing details, but the standard Ghost starts at $311,900. The Ghost Zenith Collection will only be available or a limited time, as Rolls-Royce says the order books will be closing imminently before the next-generation model arrives in 2020.
