The Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Collection has been revealed this week, sporting an array of silver-themed enhancements to commemorate the 1907 long-distance record of Charles Rolls and Claude Johnson in Sir Henry Royce's original 'Silver Ghost'.
While the 'standard' Ghost is hardly what you'd call common, the limited run of 35 units gets unique appointments like a solid sterling silver Spirit of Ecstasy on the bonnet, which also features an 'AX201' marking at the base – the registration plate worn by the original 'Silver Ghost' – finished with black-gold plating and hammered copper.
Cassiopeia Silver is the name of the exterior finish, accented by a master coachline that is 'imbued' with fine particles of 100 per cent pure silver.
The interior features 'Forest Green' leather accents, which is a nod to the Silver Ghost's original cabin colour scheme, while silver-tipped leather is fitted for the first time in any Rolls-Royce, accented by open-pore wood trim which features a silver inlay.
A special clock resides in the dashboard, engraved with 'Silver Ghost Since 1907'. A hand-beaten solid silver encasement adds an extra touch of exclusivity, which the company says is reminiscent of the original's dials.
Even the door-mounted umbrellas (below) have seen an upgrade – edged in a silver-coloured binding and feature an open-pore Tudor Oak handle.
Buyers will also receive a time-piece, sunglasses, accessories case, and a 'Silver Ghost' pen – the latter shaped as the speedform of the vehicle.
Pricing in Australia starts from $800,000 drive-away, but with only 35 available globally, they may already all be sold.
