Rolls-Royce has recently announced the latest addition to the Black Badge family, the newest Black Badge Ghost.

The British luxury carmaker has released a video on its official YouTube page introducing the Black Badge Ghost. You can check it out here.

“After considerable internal debate, Rolls-Royce announced that it would create an officially sanctioned response to a new kind of client: a permanent Bespoke treatment to its motor cars named Black Badge. These products, which were launched in 2016, would be darker in aesthetic, more urgent in personality, and dramatic in material treatment,” said Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Chief Executive Officer, Torsten Müller-Ötvös.

“Today, we announce a product that represents a new kind of Black Badge motor car, one that seizes on the minimalist, Post Opulent design treatment that has recast the legend of Ghost but amplifies and subverts it with the application of black. Our most advanced motor car yet has been reengineered to characterize the alter ego of Rolls-Royce: assertive, dynamic, and potent. This is the purest Black Badge motor car in the marque’s history. This is Black Badge Ghost,” he added.

According to Rolls-Royce, this Black Badge Ghost follows the brand’s “Post Opulence” design — an aesthetic movement characterized by reduction and substance. The automotive brand says that it was built with extreme minimalism in mind.

Outside the Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost features a sinister style with the brand’s darkest black paint.

The achromatic hue is achieved as 45 kilograms of paint is atomized and applied to an electrostatically charged body in white before being oven-dried. After which, it gets two layers of clear coat before being hand-polished by a team of four craftsmen to produce the marque’s signature high-gloss piano finish.

To complete the noir look, RR’s Black Badge Ghost comes with a dark chrome-plated Pantheon Grille, Spirit of Ecstasy, and a bespoke 21-inch composite wheelset.

Inside are similarly luxurious modern minimalist touches such as Bolivan wood, air vents color-treated through vapor deposition, a champagne cooler with aircraft-grade aluminum, and a specially-designed timepiece on the dashboard.

Power will come from a twin-turbocharged 6.75-liter V12 engine mated to an eight-speed gearbox.
