Rolls-Royce is a car manufacturer that has just launched the Manchester Ghost year 2023. Find out all about this car below!
With just over 6,000 cars sold in 2022, Rolls-Royce it is anything but a high-volume automaker. Their vehicles aren't incredibly rare by overall production numbers either.
Still, we'll never see two identical Rolls-Royces on the road. That's because every car, whether it's a Ghost or a Cullinan, is built to the customer's specifications.
But even so, some examples stand out more than others. The silver model you see here may look mundane from a distance, but it's a truly one-of-a-kind model designed to celebrate the company's bond with the city of Manchester.
Meet Manchester Ghost 2023, a fully bespoke creation loaded with unique features.
Described as a project that “celebrates the historic resonance of the city of Manchester”, the four doors commemorate the moment when Charles Rolls and Henry Royce met at the Midland Hotel on May 4, 1904. That's when the company's founding fathers agreed to create “the best car in the world”.
The theme continues inside the cabin with turquoise accents on the seats, headrests, dash and center console. The color matches well with the black and white upholstery, giving the cabin a distinctive, modern look.
But that is not all. While regular Rolls-Royce models have illuminated “stars” on the headliner, the Manchester Ghost features a graphene lattice pattern.
And it's not the only science-related feature on this car. Illuminated sills display the letters “MCR” inscribed in binary, a tribute to “Manchester Baby”, the world's first stored-program electronic computer.
Also built at the University of Manchester, it ran its first program in 1948 and began development of the Ferranti Mark 1, the first commercially available computer.
THE Rolls-Royce it doesn't say whether the Manchester Ghost will be sold to a customer or remain with the Manchester dealer who ordered it, but it's a fitting homage to the city that laid the foundation of Britain's iconic luxury brand.
