1. The Special Edition Ghost Extended Wheelbase

The Special Edition Ghost Extended Wheelbase was created in honor of the Tiger of Mysore, which apparently was a term used to describe the Tipu Sultan of the Kingdom of Mysore, an old kingdom that was located somewhere in southern India. Only 3 cars were ever made, and Abu Dhabi seems to be the only place they can be found.

2. The Celestial Phantom one-off

These cars are certainly works of art, and creative minds are often inspired by ancient artifacts. Such is the case with the beautiful Ghost Golden Sun Bird one-off! The ancient Golden Sun Bird artifacts, which was discovered in China, and is believed to date back to 1000 BC, inspired Rolls-Royce to create this marvelous one-off.

The Phantom Coupe Aviator collection was designed in honor of the Supermarine S6B, which was a great seaplane that was powered by a Rolls-Royce airplane engine. The interior of this Special Edition featured a vintage airplane cockpit aesthetic, with wooden accents and a luxurious color scheme. The collection counts 35 cars.
