‘‘the intention was to create a finely crafted contemporary building that works in harmony with its natural setting.’’ sir nicholas grimshaw architect goodwood is the modern home of rolls-royce here the ghost range and phantom model family are hand-built under the same roof – one of the largest single-span ‘living roofs’ in europe covered with thousands of sedum plants it changes colour with the seasons and helps our building blend seamlessly with the surrounding countryside as do the cedar cladding louvres which also automatically adjust to shield the glare of the sun this creates the perfect environment for our craftspeople to hone their skills – transforming the finest natural materials into the finest cars in the world 40

‘‘we don’t just paint our cars we strive to create an incredibly deep flawless shine.’’ lisa tandy paint associate ghost shares the same paint shop as phantom and the same mirror-like finish it takes us seven days to achieve in that time we spend longer sanding the bodyshell between coats by hand than we do painting it once the fifth and final coat a layer of clear lacquer has been applied it receives a further five hours of hand-polishing which is why when you look closely at ghost’s paint work you’ll see a perfect reflection of yourself staring back at you exterior colour

‘‘every inch of leather is inspected by eye to make sure there are no imperfections.’’ ben creasey laser cutter even the slightest imperfection has no place in a rolls-royce which is why we only use a-grade bull leather this ensures the upholstery and trim in your ghost will have no unsightly scars or stretch marks we use at least eight hides for each interior and to guarantee perfect consistency of colour throughout each one comes from the same batch we also drum dye our hides rather than paint them so that the colour permeates right through the leather this process also imparts a natural suppleness to the leather and means it will neither squeak nor crack so all you will notice when you settle into your ghost is the remarkable softness of the leather itself interior leather
