It may sound like a ghoulish romance flick, but there’s nothing creepy about Rolls-Royce’s romantic interest in China –save for the fact it’s all for the sake of cash.
As such we’ve grown used to the special series and one-off editions directly aimed at Chinese customers – after all the Asian market is the largest in the world and the second biggest when discussing luxury models alone. Developed with the Chinese market in mind, the Ghost “Eternal Love” makes its first public appearance at the Minsheng Art Museum in Beijing and then will head off to the production lines for a limited run of just 16 units. The moniker should be a “dead” giveaway, but if you didn’t catch Rolls-Royce’s drift then we can tell you this limited edition celebrates love and comes as a mix of modern design themes taken from the white swan motif with the typical Rolls-Royce craftsmanship. It’s not obvious but the vehicle retains a two-tone paint scheme: the combo is between English White and Silver Stain – and additionally the finishing touch is represented by two swans making a heart on the coachline. Other features include the polished 20-inch forged alloy wheels and the interior continues the theme with a heart on the leather seatbacks and the illuminated treadplates with “Love is Eternity” lettering.
Other interior amenities worth noticing are the bespoke clock that compliments the Tudor Oak wood panel or the Hotspur Red finish used to embellish the headliner, seat stitching, and the headrest embroidery – the seats are upholstered in Seashell leather. The Ghost Eternal Love comes with no alterations to the biturbo 6.6-liter V12 engine which continues to pack 563 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque.
