The Art Deco Collection car takes inspiration from one of the defining movements of the 20th century – in homage to the 1925 Paris Exhibition or Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes that gave the movement its name. Art Deco was a style that employed futuristic crystallised motifs referencing Greek classicism and Egyptian relics mixed with the dynamic of the age of the machine and streamlined automotive liberation. Its influence has extended to disciplines such as architecture, automotive design, marketing, ceramics and furniture-making.
The special Art Deco Ghost Extended Wheelbase in Hong Kong has a black and Arctic white interior that hints at the visual language of the movement while a suite of Art Deco-inspired interior detailing points to the creativity, skill and attention to detail employed by Rolls-Royce craftspeople.
The usual Rolls-Royce attention to detail on the Ghost Extended Wheelbase Art Deco car for Hong Kong makes for a stunning car. At the front, the car has a unique, illuminated Spirit of Ecstasy, with Art Deco coachline on the sides, contrasting with a smooth powder blue exterior. The black leather interior is complemented by powder blue seat piping, which contrasts with Art Deco embroidery on the headrests. An interior with Art Deco inlays within piano black wood creates a highly polished and luxurious finish, with a look and feel similar to piano lacquering. Specially-themed treadplates add to a highly desirable Rolls-Royce motor car.
“We are delighted to present the one and only powder blue Art Deco Ghost Extended Wheelbase in Hong Kong. This cosmopolitan city has a flourishing art scene and, for years, has been successfully synthesising culture, technology and art, much like how the Art Deco Collection has been created. We wanted to ensure that this Art Deco car had an exterior that is attractive yet subtle, complemented by an interior that is simple yet indulgent at the same time thanks to fine details inspired by the Art Deco movement,” comments Dan Balmer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, General Manager for Asia Pacific.
