Majority of Rolls-Royce Ghost featured bespoke content

More than half of clients who specified a Rolls-Royce Ghost in 2011 turned to bespoke personalisation.
Some 56 per cent of Ghost and Ghost Extended Wheelbase models sold around the world featured bespoke design in 2011, according to Rolls-Royce and motoring asiaone.

The bespoke service, which includes anything from the application of unique paint colours, coach lines and tread plates to whole vehicle designs featuring champagne sets, humidors and picnic cabinets, helped drive Rolls-Royce to record sales last year.

The move to personalised Rolls-Royce Ghost models follows an increase in sales of bespoke Phantom family cars last year.

More than 8 in every 10 Rolls-Royce Phantom models passed through the hands of the team’s designers and craftsmen before being delivered to a client. In some markets in the Middle East, every Phantom featured bespoke content.

In August 2011 Rolls-Royce announced an expansion of its bespoke operation to meet growing demand, doubling the number of bespoke experts working at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood by the end of the year.

The company is also about to expand its manufacturing facility, partly due to the increase in demand for bespoke cars.
