The new Rolls-Royce Ghost Prism is stealthy with a touch of sass

A new, frighteningly stylish Rolls-Royce, anyone? Fans of the carmaker’s deliberately minimalist revamp of the Ghost series from 2021 will be thrilled by the new Ghost Prism limited edition, rolled out in 120 units to commemorate Rolls-Royce’s 120th anniversary.

Oozing a similarly sleek “post-opulent” design philosophy of the 2021 model, the Ghost Prism accents the stealth-wealth expressions of its predecessor—pared down grille, softer and less formal silhouette, and unobtrusively paintwork—with a touch of colour.

“At Rolls-Royce, we are led by the tastes and desires of our clients, who in many cases determine global trends in fashion and the wider luxury sector. Ghost Prism is an extension of the personal aesthetic of a specific subset from this group of tastemakers,” says Anders Warming, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ director of design, in a press statement.

Clients can choose between ‘Turchese’, ‘Mandarin’, ‘Forge Yellow’, and ‘Phoenix Red’, with the bold accents found on the lower bumper inserts, brake calipers and coachline. The hue is echoed throughout the interior of the car, including the 1,040 ‘stars’ in the bespoke ‘Starlight’ headliner.

Like any serious statement of minimalist style, the colours are judiciously applied, serving to enhance—and not distract—from the car’s exterior canvas of finished dark, neutral tones. No change, however, has been made to its technical innovations and power train. Like before, a twin-turbocharged 6.8-liter V-12 sits under the hood and delivers a peak 563 hp to complement the Ghost Prism’s newfound style with a shot of adrenaline.
