Rolls-Royce: Black Badge Ghost Announces
With the debut in 2016 Rolls-Royce Black Badge with Wraith and Ghost they followed the trend and came up with Dawn in 2017, and then Cullinan in 2019, and there is another joining this elite club - the Black Badge Ghost.
The new Ghost is not just the most technologically advanced Rolls-Royce yet, but also the most aesthetically pure.
In the twelve months since this motor car has been available, it has become one of the fastest-selling products in the marque's history, having sold more than 3500 examples worldwide. With the Black Badge Ghost, Rolls-Royce is giving its customers a choice to select any of the marque's 44,000 colours or create their own entirely unique Bespoke hue.
The barrel of each wheel is made up of 22 layers of carbon fibre laid on three axes, then folded back on themselves at the outer edges of the rim
To match this dramatic coachwork, the marque's Bespoke Collective of designers, engineers and craftspeople collaborated to create an entirely customisable process that allows Rolls-Royce hallmarks such as the high-polished Spirit of Ecstasy and Pantheon Grille to be subverted. Instead of simply painting these components, a specific chrome electrolyte is introduced to the traditional chrome plating process that is co-deposited on the stainless-steel substrate, darkening the finish. Its final thickness is just one micrometre - around one-hundredth of the width of a human hair. Each of these components is precision-polished by hand to achieve a mirror-black chrome finish before it is fitted to the motor car.

The exterior treatment resolves with a Bespoke 21-inch composite wheelset. Designed in the Black Badge house style and reserved for Black Badge Ghost, the barrel of each wheel is made up of 22 layers of carbon fibre laid on three axes, then folded back on themselves at the outer edges of the rim, forming a total of 44 layers of carbon fibre for greater strength. A 3D-forged aluminium hub is bonded to the rim using aerospace-grade titanium fasteners and finished with the marque's hallmark Floating Hubcap, ensuring the Double R monogram remains upright at all times.
