Rolls Royce Celebrates its 100th With a Special Edition Phantom
Rolls Royce is celebrating its 100th birthday with the Phantom Silver, a special edition model commemmorating the automaker's best-known vehicle, the Silver Ghost.
The Silver Ghost was first built in 1906 as a concept vehicle promoting the six-cylinder 40/50 model. It hit production in 1907, earning massive kudos for engineering quality and reliability, not to mention its "stealthy" demeanor, hence the "Ghost" moniker.
The new "Silver" puts Rolls' money where its mouth is -- many of the accents are in solid silver, including the retractable hood ornament, key fobs and fountain pen included with the deal.
Only 25 vehicles will be built, making this Silver Ghost nearly as valuable as the first ones to hit the path.
