Rolls Royce reveals Art Deco Ghost EWB at Hong Kong
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
If you remember clearly, Rolls Royce was celebrating the Art Deco movement at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. The automaker presented three cars to pay homage to the Art Deco movement – a Phantom, a Ghost and a Phantom Drophead Coupé. Now, you can add an extended wheelbase version of the Ghost to the collection as well.
Rolls Royce recently presented an extended wheelbase (EWB) version of the baby roller Ghost trimmed in Art Deco garnish at Hong Kong.
We would like to remind our audience that Rolls Royce Art Deco collection is an ultra exclusive set of 35 cars from the company’s bespoke program which take inspiration from the 1925 Paris Exposition, one of the defining movements of the 20th century.
The Ghost EWB Art Deco edition features some exquisite garnish such as –
- Powder blue body paint
- An illuminated Spirit of Ecstasy
- Art Deco coachline on the sides
- Black and arctic white upholstery with powder blue seat piping
- Art Deco embroidery
- Art Deco inlays within piano black wood trims
The Art Deco Ghost EWB has been built exclusively for Hong Kong where the British automaker is witnessing a growing interest for specially commissioned cars.
Previously, the automaker had launched ‘Year of the Dragon’ Collection which was very successful. Rolls Royce believes that its clientele in Hong Kong are connoisseurs who will appreciate the Art Deco cars as well.
Although, Mr Herfried Hasenoehrl, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ General Manager for Emerging Markets, had confirmed to IAB that Art Deco cars are India-bound, this one will certainly not cross the Great Wall.
