Rolls-Royce Ghost Zenith Gears Up for European Debut

By Paul Joseph

The 2019 edition of Salon Privé is to feature the European debut of the limited edition Rolls-Royce Ghost Zenith, it has been confirmed,

The sumptuous model, which made its North American debut recently at Pebble Beach, will be showcased at the prestigious UK car event which takes place from 5-7 September in the luxurious setting of Blenheim Palace.

A true collector’s item in the making, with just 50 models being made available by the marque, the Rolls-Royce Ghost Zenith comes with a distinguished back-story.

It was the Silver Ghost of 1908 that established Rolls-Royce Motor Cars as manufacturers of ‘The Best Car in the World’ and just over 100 years later, an experimental, contemporary expression of the iconic nameplate, 200EX, was shown at the Geneva Motor Show.

Since its introduction in 2009, Ghost has gone on to become the most successful Rolls-Royce motor car ever built, attracting a new and much younger group of owners to the marque.

Externally, the Ghost Zenith Collection is presented in a two-tone application with a high gloss contrast paint finish and Silver Satin bonnet, first seen on 200EX.

Three different colour-ways are available; Iguazu Blue with Andalusian White, Premiere Silver with Arctic White or a daring Bohemian Red with Black Diamond, with multiple variants available highlighting the flexibility of the model.

The interior of the car comes with a choice of three different finishes: wood, Technical Fibre or Piano finished veneer, all of which are designed to compliment the embroidered leather interior.

Unique to the Ghost Zenith Standard Wheelbase, the famed Starlight Headliner is presented in a Shooting Star configuration, depicting shooting stars randomly firing across the cabin roof.

Commenting on the Ghost Zenith Collection, Salon Privé Co-Founder & Sales Director, David Bagley, said: “It is a real honour for us to host the European debut of the Rolls-Royce Ghost Zenith at this year’s event straight after its reveal at Pebble Beach.

“Henry Royce had an instinctive desire for perfection and his fabled ethic of taking the best that exists and making it better is demonstrated here today as Rolls-Royce have taken the most successful car they have ever produced – and made it better. 

“The workmanship and expertise that has gone into creating this limited-edition luxury collector’s item is simply extraordinary and we are thrilled to be presenting this sensational new luxury car on the lawns of Blenheim Palace during Salon Privé.”

Now in its 14th year, Salon Privé is now recognised as one of the top car events in the world alongside Pebble Beach, Villa d’Este and Amelia Island.
