For the first time ever, Rolls-Royce has created a car to honour the anniversary of a country.
The luxury car brand announced this week that it will be selling a SG50 Ghost Series II in connection with the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s independence, which will be celebrated during Jubilee Weekend on August 7-10.
“This SG50 Ghost Series II, a unique celebratory Rolls-Royce, will sit as a timeless masterpiece in a client’s care to reflect on this significant milestone,” Paul Harris, Asia Pacific regional director of Rolls-Royce, said in a press release.
A price for the limited edition Ghost has not been announced, but the Singapore dealer is already speaking with a few potential buyers, according to Rolls-Royce. The base price for a normal Ghost Series II is about $US290,000.
The car boasts an all-white exterior that’s decorated with a red coachline to honour the Singapore flag, according to Rolls-Royce.
The interior features dark red leather seats that have Singapore’s iconic Merlion stitched into each headrest.
Here’s a close-up view of the headrest. A total of 15,080 stitches went into the process, according to Rolls-Royce.
On the vehicle’s tread plate is an intricate sketch of Singapore’s skyline with the words “Hand Built in Goodwood, England for Singapore’s 50th Anniversary.”
