Rolls-Royce introduced the model in November 2012, it comes with a 6.6 liter V12 with twin turbochargers. At 5250 rpm, the Ghost was capable of generating 563 HP, it also provides 575 lbs-ft of torque, allowing it to hit a top limited speed of 155 mph.
The electric air-sprung suspension system has been design to absorb road undulations. During poor road conditions, the suspensions are not enough and handling becomes difficult. Due to its weight, road grip gives it a stable feel during long drives. Light steering becomes an issue as the car tends to over steer on light corners.
The design has been sprayed with two different shades of brown and hand-painted coach lines. The paintwork also includes the Arabic words "One Thousand and One Nights" on the back of the car. Except the paintwork, no other design modifications have been executed.
The interior of the car will be available only in white. Very few elements have remained black such as the leather-covered steering wheel and the dashboard. The lower part of the dashboard, the seats and the doors are covered in white leather with chrome elements.
Part of a trilogy, the 2013 Rolls-Royce One Thousand and One Nights Ghost Collection edition will only be available for the Middle East consumers due to its cultural adaptation. At the same time, the production of these models will be limited, similar to other editions such as the white version of the car.
