Not all of the rich Sheikhs in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia like to spend their oil money supporting extremism in the Middle East. Some of them tend to blow up their cash on fancy toys, like a diamond-encrusted Roller. That’s exactly what this is, the one-off Rolls-Royce Ghost Red Diamond featuring 41 individual diamonds.
Commissioned by an unnamed Saudi, Rolls-Royce Ghost Red Diamond looks like a plain old red Ghost on the outside with its Red Velvet body color and brushed aluminum bonnet and grille, although the bespoke wheels look kind of special.
It is the interior where most of the money, and it must have been a huge sum, is spent. It’s a bit of a mismatch really, what with the tan leather seat upholstery and matching cushions and Consort Red consoles and steering with decorative stitching, paired with Paldao wood veneer. But it is damn special in here thanks to 41 individual diamonds, each set into geometric open pore inlays within the veneer.
Rolls-Royce Ghost Red Diamond is a Series II model powered by a 6.6 litre twin-turbo V12 engine mated to an 8-speed ZF gearbox. It’s a Roller you can choose to drive, or being driven in.
