Rolls-Royce Ghost Royal Horse Collectors Edition for the China car market
Published on October 23, 2013 by Tycho de Feijter
Rolls-Royce has launched another China-only special edition based on the Rolls-Royce Ghost. The new special is called ‘Royal Horse Collectors Edition’, inspired by the famous & feared ‘Yingjizi’ royal war horses of the imperial army during China’s Qing Dynasty (1644-1912). The Rolls-Royce Ghost Royal Horse Collectors Edition comes with lots of horses inside and out.
Rolls-Royce says the horse is a symbol of “the Chinese nation”, much like the dragon or the phoenix. The horses are drawn by British artists using traditional Chinese methods and Chinese ink. The Royal Horse Collectors Edition is therefore, says again Rolls-Royce, “blending traditional Chinese and Western cultures”.
The Rolls-Royce Ghost Royal Horse Collectors Edition is unlimited in number but will only be available until the end of the year. No word on price which means it will be very expensive. Price of the base Ghost starts at 4.19 million yuan or 687.000 USD.
