Super-luxury carmaker Rolls-Royce took the wraps off its newest creation on Wednesday, a one-off Ghost model to commemorate Singapore's 50th year of independence.
The special edition "SG50 Ghost Series II" features a bespoke white exterior with a contrasting red coachline to represent the colors of the Singapore flag.
The two-tone color theme continues into the cabin, where the Merlion – the city state's national half-fish and half-lion icon – is stitched into the four headrests.
It doesn't stop there. The vehicle's tread plate features a highly detailed digital sketch of Singapore's skyline, completed with the words "Hand Built in Goodwood, England for Singapore's 50th Anniversary."
"This SG50 Ghost Series II, a unique celebratory Rolls-Royce, will sit as a timeless masterpiece in a client's care to reflect on this significant milestone," said Paul Harris, Asia Pacific Regional Director of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
It is the first time the carmaker has commissioned a car to celebrate the anniversary of a country.
When asked for the price tag, Rolls Royce declined to provide a specific figure, saying it was available on application. The "entry level" Ghost Series II runs around $290,000 in the U.S. Just one SG50 bespoke model will be one available for purchase, and it will arrive in the city-state in August, the carmaker said.
With less than a month to go for the anniversary of Singapore's independence, National Day, which falls on August 9, SG50 merchandise is springing up all over the island. It will be the city state's biggest anniversary celebration yet with a string of festivities planned by the government over the August 7-10 long weekend.
