Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost Ékleipsis Private Collection

 Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is delighted to present the Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost Ékleipsis Private Collection, inspired by the seldom-seen wonder of a solar eclipse. Harnessing the incredible forces of this celestial phenomenon, these exquisite commissions explore the captivating interplay of light and darkness, recreating the awe-inspiring moment when the Moon completely obscures the Sun.

  • Rolls-Royce Motor Cars presents the Black Badge Ghost Ékleipsis Private Collection
  • Limited to just 25 examples, it is inspired by the drama, spectacle, and mystery of a solar eclipse
  • The animated Starlight Headliner adds a true sense of theatre and wonders for the occupants as they take their seats in the cabin
  • Bespoke fascia depicts stages of a total solar eclipse and includes a Bespoke timepiece inset with a dazzling 0.5-carat diamond
  • ‘Panoramic Sunset’ bi-coloured and perforated leather seats capture the haunting 360-degree twilight effect seen at the moment of totality

“With Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost Ékleipsis, we draw inspiration from a total solar eclipse: a seldom-seen and spellbinding phenomenon that reflects the rarity and beauty of Rolls-Royce Private Collections. In capturing the magic of this celestial alignment, our Bespoke Collective of designers, engineers, and craftspeople have once again elevated contemporary craftsmanship, with a landmark series of exquisite details that project the marque’s culture of ambition and excellence.”

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars

The purity of Rolls-Royce Ghost, infused with the subversive Black Badge spirit, presents the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective with the perfect canvas and limitless possibility to express the beauty of this wonder of the universe.

A solar eclipse also creates the effect of a 360-degree sunset, something Rolls-Royce tried to capture in two-tone perforated leather upholstery. Over 20,000 individual perforations reveal orange spots beneath the black leather seats. Umbrellas hidden in the doors also have orange piping.

Black Badge models get the same twin-turbocharged 6.8-liter V-12 as the standard Ghost, but produce 592 hp, compared to 563 hp for the standard car. Power is sent to all four wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission. Rolls says Black Badge models will do 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.

All Black Badge Ghost Ékleipsis Private Collection cars have been spoken for, but it's likely only a matter of time until Rolls-Royce launches another limited-edition collection.
