As luxury car aficionados convene on California’s Monterey Peninsula for the 70th gathering of Monterey Car Week, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars showcases two unique Bespoke commissions to celebrate the occasion. With a stunning display at ‘The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering,’ the world’s leading luxury brand highlights the latest member of the Rolls-Royce family, Ghost, alongside the sought-after Cullinan Black Badge.
Ghost, the latest iteration of the most successful product in the marque’s 117-year history, is shown this year in Monterey with a bold, colorful finish of Bespoke Friskee Pink. For the first time, this unique color adorns the pure and minimalist form provided by the ‘Post Opulent’ design of Ghost.
Complementing this lively color choice is a restful Navy Blue and Arctic White leather interior that incorporates highlights of a new Rolls-Royce leather hue, Shieda. This bright and bold magenta pink accentuates the long, unbroken lines throughout the cabin, for which Ghost is known. Stitching details in Shieda are found on Ghost’s seats, headrests and leather-encased indicator stalks. Each elegant detail has been considered and thoughtfully placed.
Engineered around the dedicated Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Architecture of Luxury, Ghost features a combination of reductionist design and state of the art technology. Underneath the refined exterior, Ghost is the most technologically advanced Rolls-Royce yet. The new Planar suspension system integrates a unique front upper wishbone damper, Flagbearer digital suspension management and the world’s most advanced Satellite Aided Transmission to deliver the most refined driving experience ever.
Black Badge is designed for the Rolls-Royce patron who rejects conformity and dares to be different. With a bolder, darker aesthetic, this series of motor cars invites clients to push the boundaries of Bespoke design to match their personality. Yet, Black Badge offers more than alluring design. The marque’s engineers have created a Bespoke dynamic treatment that generates more torque, control and power.
This Cullinan Black Badge features a dramatic Iced Turchese exterior with signature Black Badge detailing, creating a bold and progressive statement. Inside, the colorway is reversed, with swathes of Black leather highlighted with Turchese leather. A Bespoke Turchese lemniscate logo, often described as the ‘infinity’ symbol and the hallmark of Black Badge products, seamlessly blends with the Technical Carbon Veneer and remaining interior elements.
