Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Doha has announced the arrival of the one-of-one Rolls-Royce Ghost Dhow Edition, a special commission developed by the marque’s world-renowned Bespoke department to be presented in Qatar only. This unique vehicle takes its inspiration from the country’s heritage by using the Qatari Dhow as its muse. The Dhow or Merkab as it is commonly known in Arabic is the traditional wooden sailing vessel that was used for centuries in Qatar to travel the Arabian Gulf and Indian Ocean for fishing, pearl diving and the trading of dates, spices and mangrove timber. The breath-taking two-tone exterior features Inca Gold set against Porcelain White, with a Turchese twin coachline extending around the car. The three colours combine artistically to convey the hues of the wooden Dhow as it embarks on its misty morning sojourns in the azure waters of the Arabian Gulf.
Showcasing the breadth of Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke offerings, the interior of the car features tri-color leather in Seashell, Oatmeal, and Turchese with contrast stitching and seat piping, in addition to Lambswool floor mats, a Cooling Box, and Bespoke Picnic Tables for the rear passengers. A collection of sophisticated Dhow-Inspired features can be found throughout this unique vehicle, including a Dhow motif embroidery on all four headrests and engraved steel Dhow motifs on the fore of the picnic tables and on the exterior coachline of the car. The Dhow theme is completed with an Oatmeal-colored steering wheel and a leather headliner set against Paldao wooden veneer. Commenting on the arrival of this motoring masterpiece, Ihab Allam, General Manager of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Doha said: “Ghost is a vision of simplicity – it takes the core brand values of Rolls-Royce and creates effortless luxury, but also stands for a new generation of younger and contemporary Rolls-Royce customers. We are truly proud to merge these attributes - old and new, iconic and contemporary, traditional and modern – in one special edition that is only available to our brand’s patrons in Qatar.”
Ghost has proven to be no ordinary power and has been the cornerstone of Rolls-Royce Motor Car’s success around the world since its launch in 2009. The perfect representation of Rolls-Royce’s signature attributes of luxury, refinement and hand-craftsmanship, coupled with the latest in industry-leading technology, Ghost is the ultimate symbol of success for leading entrepreneurs across the region and the world. When combined with the ability for personalization through the Bespoke Programme, the result is the ultimate in automotive excellence, a contemporary interpretation of the luxury motor car and the number one choice in transport for the discerning patron.
