Abu Dhabi Motors, the exclusive dealer for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, has commissioned a one-off Bespoke Rolls-Royce Ghost. Named the Rolls-Royce Sambook Ghost, the one-off car is inspired by the seafaring heritage of the Arabian Gulf.

Hand-built in Goodwood, West Sussex, the Sambook Ghost bears several intricate touches that pay tribute to the sailing ships that inspired its design, including a sweeping pillar motif of a Sambook at full sail.

Finished in two-tone Black Ember and Tuscan Sun, the exterior style of the Sambook Ghost is reminiscent of teak wood, which is traditionally used in the construction of ancient Sambooks. In typical Rolls-Royce style, the hand-polished by Goodwood’s craftspeople.

Carrying the theme over, the Sambook Ghost’s interior features Casden Tan and Dark Spice colours, with the signature Starlight Headliner, which provides a magical ambiance of shooting stars that streak overhead through the constellation of your choice, powered by over 1,300 hand-placed fibre-optic lights.

“Ghost is Rolls‑Royce at its most graceful and dramatic. With the Sambook Ghost, we have added an even greater sense of refinement – one that is steeped in the cultural heritage of the Gulf. The Sambook Ghost represents an incredible opportunity to own a truly one-of-a-kind motor car that is inspired by an integral part of this region’s history and culture,” says Tarek Moataz, Rolls Royce Brand Manager, Abu Dhabi Motors.
