Rolls-Royce has unveiled a special version of its extended-wheelbase Ghost, called FAB1, with the hopes of helping to raise more than one million pounds (roughly $1.5 million) for a UK charity named Breast Cancer Care. Over the next year, the FAB1 Million Project will see this pink Ghost used to raise money by renting it out for special events and occasions with all of the proceeds going to the charity.

More than just a pretty pink paint job, though, this Ghost demonstrates some of the bespoke options you can order from Rolls-Royce, including pink carpeting, pink leather, pink center caps and even a pink umbrella tucked into the door. The full press release for this Ghost can be found below.

ROLLS-ROYCE MOTOR CARS PROVIDES GHOST EXTENDED WHEELBASE TO FAB1 MILLION PROJECT IN SUPPORT OF BREAST CANCER CARE

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars proudly presents FAB1, a Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase set to support FAB1 Million and Breast Cancer Care.

Headed by Chris Evans, the FAB1 Million project is set to raise £1 million for Breast Cancer Care through making this bespoke Ghost available to hire over the next twelve months. This extraordinary car will make appearances at exclusive events as well as being available for hire for any special day, with all proceeds directly benefiting Breast Cancer Care.

In support of this exciting project and very worthy cause, the Rolls-Royce Bespoke team has prepared a very special motor car, combining numerous exclusive bespoke elements, from pink accented umbrellas, to hand-embroidered headrests featuring the Breast Cancer Care pink ribbon motif. Further enhancements include unique 'FAB1' treadplates and a Blushing Pink and Crème Light interior leather scheme. An uplit Spirit of Ecstasy adorns the silver satin bonnet.

In addition to providing a superior ride experience and ample legroom, the passenger experience of this exceptional Ghost Extended Wheelbase is enhanced with hand veneered picnic tables, 9.2 inch LCD screens and a champagne coolbox. Passengers will be able to relax with a chilled glass of champagne, indulge in a concerto, courtesy of a 10-channel amplifier and 16 speakers delivering 600 Watts of surround sound, or simply sink into sumptuous leather seats and lambswool footmats, relaxing into luxurious silence as they journey to their destination.

"When I received the call from Chris Evans to support FAB1 Million, we immediately sprang into action," said Jolyon Nash, Sales and Marketing Director. "It's taken countless hours to create such a special car but every minute spent is absolutely worth it for such a valuable cause. We wish the project every success."

The project is set to launch on Thursday 18 April with a star-studded point to point drive in FAB1 from Land's End to John O'Groats.

      Really? No one bothered to find out why it's called FAB1? It's an homage to Lady Penelope's six-wheeled Rolls Royce from Gerry Anderson's original 'Thunderbirds'... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FAB1

      Is that the headrest or is that Mary Kay's buffon hair showing in the back seat?

      I can't be the only one who thought the title was a bit suggestive...

      Everyone will just think you sold a boat load of cosmetics.

      Dark grey or white paint with subtle pink accent lines would have been far more tasteful.

      Needs another axle in the front before it could be Lady Penelope's ride

      90+% of the money will go towards "expenses" and if you are lucky maybe 5% of the money will actually make it to the intended cause, like every other scam charity out there.

      Charity or no charity this is a pink mess. I am sure there are some other ways to support charity... That amazing car in pink is beyond ugly...

        That sound is the point whizzing by you. A one of a kind car, even a silly one of a kind car, will raise a lot more in a charity auction block/rental office than a standard car will. This is a time honored automotive tradition. The only thing wrong with this is it should have two sets of front wheels.

      Cool, so it was for a good cause. Pink Ghost for breast cancer charity is a-okay, a pink Ghost for a celebrity is a whole different story.

      Fab 1? Is this supposed to be for breast cancer or for gay rights? Looks like some sneaky gay man deliberately hijacked the cause. Why do they always try to find ways to impose themselves on others? Always trying to pervert regular causes.

        It's a reference to the FAB 1, a pink six wheeled rolls royce from thunderbirds.

        Dude you're a little preoccupied with the gay-thing. There's nothing in the press release that has anything to do with equal rights. But then all that pink color probably triggered something in you...lol.
