The Rolls-Royce has always had a history of elegance and class – until now. That prestigious reputation has been smashed by the world’s most vulgar makeover of the company’s iconic Ghost model. An Italian fashion design house has created a gold-covered monstrosity costing more than £1 million.
The Fenice Milano ‘Diva’ has been spray painted in 24-carat gold and the company is so proud of it they have described the model as a “true masterpiece”. It is fitted with the same 6-litre twin-turbocharged engine of the Ghost, giving the saloon more than 560bhp and a top speed of 155mph.
Fenice Milano believes their Rolls-Royce is a “synonym for class, elegance and style”. Many would disagree. The interior has biscuit leather and 24-carat gold throughout. The standard Ghost costs £220,000 but the Diva is now for sale at £1.05million. Phillip Brooks, a Rolls-Royce historian, described the car as “bizarre” but also “spectacular”.
He said: “I think what Fenice is doing with the Ghost is quite interesting. It’s certainly a case of gilding the lily, but the gilding job looks pretty good. My personal taste doesn’t run to something like a Diva, but I think it would be great fun to show up in one. All in all, perhaps a slightly bizarre car, but a very neat one.”
