Rolls-Royce has produced a limited edition of their super exclusive Phantom, named Phantom Silver. The idea was to mark the 100th anniversary of the Silver Ghost, which is a special model and will only be build in very limited (25 pieces) edition and beside that it pays homage to the one of the most famous automotive names of all time.
The first Silver was built in 1906, specifically to publicise the then new Rolls-Royce 40/50 hp six-cylinder model. The Silver Ghost established the Rolls-Royce reputation for reliability and engineering excellence.
More than 6,000 “Silver Ghosts” were built between 1907 and 1925, and sold in every corner of the world and as a true miracle the majority are still in good condition.
Rolls-Royce Chairman and Chief Executive, Ian Robertson, said, “The Silver Ghost is such a significant model in the history of Rolls-Royce that we felt marking its 100th anniversary was entirely fitting. Its extraordinary reliability, refinement, comfort and virtually silent running were as important to Rolls-Royce in 1907 as they are today.”
