In 1907, a Rolls-Royce car set the record for the longest non-stop motor run of 15,000 miles with no hiccups. That may not seem like much today, but at the time, it was totally unheard of. The record breaking car was a Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, registered and designated AX 201. It went on to become a symbol of the brand's dedication to achieving the best in luxury carmaking.

This year, Rolls-Royce pays tribute to the Silver Ghost with a collection of modern Rolls-Royce Ghosts outfitted with specific features and design elements that reference the original AX 201.

A solid sterling-silver Spirit of Ecstasy figurine sits at the tip of the hood, with a copper AX201 Hallmark and a black-gold-plated collar around its base. Its wheel surrounds are chrome and engraved with the 'Silver Ghost' label. Inside, its interiors are accented by Tudor oak features with pure silver inlays. It also sports a unique coachline, hand-painted with pure silver particles. Check it out:

The thing about a car like this is that most of us won't ever even get to touch one. The 2018 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Collection is limited to just 35 units, so we won't even bother wishing you good luck. Instead, just enjoy the thought of driving one, fully acknowledging that you never will.
