Rolls-Royce, known for its unique coachwork and attention to detail, has done it again. In a Feb. 16 post on the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Facebook page, we see an exclusive version of the Ghost with an extended wheelbase cloaked in a metallic blue and silver livery, one of three in the Bespoke Ghost Mysore Collection.
The “Mysore” within its name comes from both a word and a place. Translated from Arabic roughly to mean “wealth and power,” the Kingdom of Mysore was defended by Tipu Sultan in the 1700s against the British empire.
Inspired by the late eighteenth-century ruler’s quote, “In this world I would rather live two days like a tiger, than two hundred years like a sheep,” the Ghost’s interior is trimmed in the epitome of elegance. Special leather, headrests embroidered with the image of a tiger and a stylized peacock on the front quarter panels reflected in the inlay of the wooden dash exude peaceful confidence and poise.

The pictured Mysore Ghost is a rolling symbol of exclusivity in comparison to the more available Ghost. The Ghost Mysore will be available exclusively at Abu Dhabi.
