One of a kind Roll-Royce Ghost, Sambook is hand-made in Goodwood, West Sussex. It is inspired by the seafaring heritage of the Arabian Gulf called “Ghost”. Sambook bears several intricate touches that pay tribute to the sailing ships that inspired the design, including a sweeping pillar motif of a Sambook at full sail.

Exterior

Keeping the gulf heritage and sail architecture/construct in mind, Sambook created exterior styling resembling the ancient vessels. The two-tone colours used on the Rolls-Royce craftily refers to Black Ember and Tuscan Sun. This hand-polished bodywork is the result of many layers of paint, applied by the company’s on-site artisans.

Tarek Moataz, Rolls-Royce brand manager at Abu Dhabi Motors, said: “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.”

Where can I see it?

The Ghost joins another unique ride at Abu Dhabi Motors, the Ghost Islamic Art. This art fits perfectly within the region since it is made up of woodwork, motifs, textiles, and ceramics. The standout feature of this vehicle is a flower emblem, embroidered on to each headrest.
