Revealed at the Beijing motor show the Rolls-Royce Ghost Six Senses is described as the most luxurious concept designed for the most discerning of individuals.
The Rolls-Royce concept is a bespoke ride that “encapsulates the richness of experience that comes as standard with any Rolls-Royce and takes it to a new level of sensory indulgence”. The senses are sight, taste, touch, sound and aroma. And the sixth is hard to define but customers will see and understand the stunning hand-made interior which embodies something of the heart and soul of each proud craftsperson involved in its creation. That’s a uniquely Rolls-Royce sixth sense that this car presents so elegantly.
Potential owners will spot the pearlescent Carrara White finish, new forged alloys, the deep lustre of Walnut Burr veneer complete with diagonally-oriented, brown oak cross-banding. The audio system has an upgraded amplifier and the inclusion of ‘exciter’ speakers housed in the leather headlining. This helps raise the centre of sound closer to a passenger’s ear.
The aroma greeting occupants comes from the most supple natural soft grain leather in enveloping, hand-crafted seats, as well as in the car’s leather headlining, with added hints of the woody spice in the walnut veneer. Deep pile lambswool rugs encourage occupants to submerge feet, while opening the boot reveals a further lambswool lining to cosset luxury bespoke luggage.
