BMW-owned Rolls-Royce Motor Cars revealed the two-tone paint option at the 2012 Geneva motor show alongside the flagship Roll-Royce Phantom Series II, which benefits from a number of design and technology upgrades.
Until now, Ghost customers could only customise their car’s paintwork by optioning the Silver Satin bonnet finish, which only continues up to the A-pillars and windscreen surround. The two-tone option extends the contrast theme to roof, rear pillars and boot lid.
The Ghost at Geneva featured an Infinity Black base colour with Cassiopeia Silver upper elements.
A customer in the Middle East recently commissioned a second two-tone Ghost. The striking colour scheme features Baynunah Brown on the body, the brighter Arizona Sun across the top, a gold-plated Spirit of Ecstasy bonnet ornament and gold double coach-lines along the profile.
Personalisation is big business when it comes to luxury cars, and Rolls-Royce says almost every Phantom that left the Goodwood production facility last year did so with at least one option from the company’s Bespoke personalisation program, which includes everything from paint colours and interior details to champagne sets, humidors and picnic sets.
Rolls-Royce enjoyed record sales in 2011, with 3538 vehicles sold around the world, including 20 in Australia.
