For the first time in the life of the Rolls-Royce Ghost, the company is offering a two-tone color scheme as a "bespoke" factory option. This comes as a surprise to us because we didn't know there was something you couldn't get on a Ghost.

The company's stand at the Geneva Motor Show was used to display the first two examples: one with Infinity Black topped by Cassiopeia Silver and another in Baynunah Brown capped by Arizona Sun, with a gold-plated hood ornament and a gold double coach-line (read: pinstripes). The Infinity Black model carries the contrast to the interior, with black leather offset by a seashell headliner and steel pinstripes set into black ash veneer.

If this is why you've been holding back on a Ghost purchase, first admire the handiwork in the photo gallery, and then pick up your phone: your local dealer is waiting on line two.

ROLLS-ROYCE GHOST RAISES THE TWO-TONE IN GENEVA

(09.03.2012) -- While the launch of Phantom Series II has been making headlines centre stage at the Geneva motor show, a very special Rolls-Royce Ghost has also been winning admirers in the company's exclusive on-stand guest lounge. Clients, dealers and media guests have been delighted by the presentation of one of the first examples of a two-tone Rolls-Royce Ghost, a bespoke option offered for the first time this year, complementing the popularity of two-tone Phantom models.

Finished in Infinity Black, with a Cassiopeia Silver upper two-tone, the Geneva Ghost features an interior design scheme that perfectly reflects the two-tone theme. Seashell headlining and sumptuous black leather frames black stained ash veneer into which steel pinstripes have been carefully crafted. The final luxury touch is lambswool floor mats into which feet are easily lost at the end of a hard day walking the Geneva halls.

"Whether Ghost or Phantom, any Rolls-Royce is a work of art, taking its place in our clients' luxury collections alongside yachts, helicopters and fine jewellery," said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. "So I am delighted that we are now able to offer two-tone options for Ghost as well as for Phantom, features that once again extend the palette upon which a Rolls-Royce masterpiece can be painted."

A second upper two-tone Rolls-Royce Ghost has recently been commissioned for delivery to a client based in the Middle East. This striking colour scheme starts with Baynunah Brown, with Arizona Sun bathing the car's bonnet, window surrounds, roof and luggage compartment. A gold-plated Spirit of Ecstasy and double coach-line in gold finish the design.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars celebrated a record sales result in 2011 with 3,538 models delivered to clients worldwide, beating the previous sales record held in 1978 when 3,347 units were sold, a period during which Rolls-Royce was under different ownership. 2011 also marked a record for the Rolls-Royce Bespoke personalisation programme, a service with Rolls-Royce's legendary hand-craftsmanship and attention to detail at its core. Nearly every Phantom family model leaving the Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood came with some element of bespoke personalisation, from unique paint colours, interior detailing and embroidery, to exquisite whole vehicle designs including champagne sets, humidors and picnic sets.

      Don't like the paint job but love the car. I'd take this over the Phantom unless the Phantom came with the V-16 that was designed for it.

      Nothing compelling about the design.

      Ugly car, ugly color, it's sad but the very wealthy will buy anything to separate themselves from the working class. It's also sad that everything in our country is geared to making the filthy rich, richer. Rolls Royce are crap, and so are the people that drive them while many poor around the world have no shoes. It's time for the rich asses to give it up.

      I wished we saw more 2 tone paint jobs. Lincoln should just copy this instead of trying to figure out what makes Acura so successful.. Chrysler 300 has the same transmission now as this Rolls Royce.

        So both companies must buy their transmissions from another company because they can't design one on their own!

      Of all the colors to shoot in a studio to showcase the two-tone option, they chose light crap brown and dark crap brown? Clean looking car, but color choice could have been better.
