Rolls-Royce Thailand launches Bespoke program with unique Ghost LWB

The Land of Smiles has just received a bespoke Rolls-Royce Ghost in the form of the KoChaMongKol. Specially-designed to be a super-luxury car under the brand's Bespoke program, the unique Extended Wheelbase Ghost was the result of a collaboration between Rolls-Royce, and the Fine Arts Department of Thailand.

Beginning with its exterior, motifs of the revered elephant are seen on the car's bodywork. Each one was painstakingly etched by craftspersons according to Rolls-Royce. In addition, Mandarin coachlines were also incorporated onto the exterior by Mark Court. The renowned coachline painter is usually the last person to add his personal touch to any car before it leaves Goodwood, the headquarters of Rolls-Royce. Completing it all is the English White paint finish.

Inside, natural gray leather finished in Smoke Gray and Dark spice blanket the cabin. Providing contrasts are hues of Mandarin that can be seen on the stitching and seat piping. The headrests, on the other hand, get the Mandarin RR monogram. Teflon-coated Dark Spice umbrellas round off the interior equipment of the KoChaMongKol.

Powering the Rolls-Royce KoChaMongKol is a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 that produces 563 PS along with 780 Nm of torque.

Apart from the special Ghost, the automaker's latest two-door, the Dawn, also made its Thai debut during the annual motor show. It gets the brand's familiar exterior styling, along with the added flair of folding roof.

It is also powered by the same 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 that churns out 563 PS and 780 Nm of torque.

“With Dawn's bold and contemporary design, we turn a new chapter in Rolls-Royce's prestigious history, defining what it means to be cool, modern, sexy and luxurious,” said Harris.
