Bespoke Rolls-Royce Ghost For Sale At Abu Dhabi Is Inspired By Islamic Art

We’ve seen Rolls-Royce models drawing their inspiration from a wide array of themes: yachts, jets, fashion, music, even “wisdom” – whatever that might mean.

It’s a safe bet that a fair number of them have found homes along the shores of the Persian Gulf. But this one may be the most fitting yet, as it’s an extended-wheelbase Ghost saloon that’s been specially crafted by the Bespoke department in Goodwood and is supposed to be inspired by Islamic Art.

Finished in two-tone Silver Sand and Arctic White, the Ghost features a dual coach-line running down the length of its shoulder and rides on a set of split-five-spoke 21-inch two-tone alloys.

Inside, it’s done up in Seashell and Smoke Grey with an Islamic architecture motif inlaid on the fold-down seat-back picnic tables and dashboard and embroidered into the headrests and rear arm rest as well.

The Ghost is powered by a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 that may not be long for this world, but certainly provides more than adequate oomph for the big sedan: 562 horsepower and 605 lb-ft of torque, to be exact, that are channeled to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

This one-off creation is for sale at Abu Dhabi Motors, the brand’s largest showroom, situated in the vital market of the United Arab Emirates. But even if this treatment isn’t your particular cup of Earl Gray, Rolls-Royce Bespoke will cook up one for you with inspiration from just about any theme you could imagine.

    does is come with bombs or heads in the glove box?

          You need to lift your joke game before I send you another check.

      No, it comes courtesy of your fuel dollars.

    • Vassilis

      What a stupid thing to say.

  • Zandit75

    It’s a nice colour scheme, but I can do without the artsy graphics. It’s just a pity the Rolls is so boring. No doubt it would be a comfortable place to be, but the drivers view is snoozeville!
    What the hell are all the little chrome buttons/levers near the airvents? They look like they belong in the 60’s!

    • Matt

      Umm they control airflow. They’re meant to look classic, that’s the whole point of a Rolls-Royce.

      It’s a more expensive and elegant solution to plastic rotating wheels found in every other car.

      • Zandit75

        Not feeling it.

        • Matt

          What are your thoughts on the chrome ‘waterfall’ grille, the suicide doors, the ‘Spirit of Ecstacy’ bonnet emblem etc… all classic design references to early RR models, just like the damped air vent ‘flutes’ which are inspired by classical instruments.

          • Zandit75

            Put it this way, if I had the money, which obviously I don’t, this would not be on my shopping list. I would look at an older classic Rolls over the newest generations, as they have lost their way design wise.

  • LWOAP

    Meh. I’m not impressed. I’ve seen so many one offs inspired by all kinds of stuff I’m over it and this particular example just so happens to be from THAT dealership.

    • Eagle By Singer

      It’s even worse when you remember who owns Rolls Royce.

    • Chad L

      Funny that this site sensors your comment anytime you mention the name lol

      • Lol yeah, but they won’t be honest if this is an advertorial either.

  • TheBelltower

    Sooo, a BMW product from a particular dealer has a particular stripe or a particular color. Clearly this endless nonsense is paid content. It should be marked as such.

  • Frank Yoster

    non muslims arent allowed to touch or buy it.nlol

  • Bash

    There are more beautiful examples out there.

  • MarketAndChurch

    Islamic art can be really pretty, and this isn’t a good example of it. That pattern actually cheapens the car and doesn’t look sophisticated. I like two-tone paint schemes but they need to contrast more in order for it to be pretty.

  • Craig

    Very nice color combination – for a 1982 Lincoln Mark VI. [And I don’t mean that as an insult to the Mark] But far too dull for a Rolls-Royce.

  • Doesn’t look that special to me, and well you can always put sticker and get that rolls royce.

  • Chad L

    Not again
