Rolls’ new downsized Ghost model is debuted in the Middle East.
While Rolls-Royce prepares to roll out the new downsized Ghost model, in the Middle East demand still soars for the full-size Phantom. But with every sheikh and his cousins driving – or more likely, being driven in – the big Rolls, the automaker has announced a new Bespoke Collection exclusively for the Persian Gulf region. Enabling wealthy clients to specify all manner of trim and color options beyond the usual range of choices, the Phantom Bespoke Collection will deliver just six special vehicles to customers in the Middle East. Following the gold-finished DHC delivered last year, the first example in the new line – pictured here – is decked out in two-tone Arizona Sun over English White paint, with Creme Light and Saddle Tan leather interior complimented by handmade silk rugs and mother of pearl inlays. So you’d better wipe off your sandals before stepping foot inside, habibi. – From AutoBlog
