Among all the models that Rolls-Royce offers, the Ghost has to be one of the most iconic, after the Phantom of course. There are few cars that come close to a Rolls-Royce Ghost in terms of the outright display of opulence and exclusivity.

However, it seems like Rolls-Royce wanted to bring new meaning to the term ‘exclusive.' The legendary British luxury car manufacturer has revealed the Ghost Zenith Edition. The Rolls-Royce Ghost Zenith Edition celebrates 10 years of the Ghost's success in global markets. At the same time, it is the final edition of the current-generation model.

The Rolls-Royce Ghost was designed to compete with the likes of the Bentley Flying Spur and top-spec variants of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series, etc, since the Rolls-Royce Phantom was too big and expensive to do that.

The model received an update in 2014 and is now finally ready for the next-generation to step in. The Rolls-Royce Ghost Zenith Edition is the most bespoke edition of the car yet, allowing unprecedented levels of customisation on a Ghost. In terms of design, it remains untouched.

Thoughts On Rolls-Royce Ghost Zenith Edition Being Revealed

The Rolls-Royce Ghost has just turned 10-years-old and that has pushed Rolls-Royce to develop a next-gen model.

Prices for the Zenith Edition have not been announced, but it is safe to say that it will be really expensive.
