It won’t be until September 1 that we get to see the new 2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost unveiled in full. To hold us over, Rolls-Royce has unveiled one feature that will be found in the ultra-luxury car that’s completely new. The new Illuminated Fascia is a new Ghost nameplate on the passenger side of the dashboard that’s surrounded by more than 850 stars. Think of this as a Starlight Headliner for the dashboard. To create this visual, Rolls-Royce installs 152 LEDs and places over 9,000 laser-etched dots across the surface of the fascia. This allows the light to not only be dispersed, but it also creates a stunning twinkling effect when you glance across the fascia.
Lead Bespoke Designer, Michael Bryden, had this to say about the beautiful new feature: “Illuminated Fascia is perfectly in tune with the Post Opulent design direction we pursued with new Ghost. This elegant and minimal aesthetic is a specific response to the layer of clients who respond to Ghost: men and women who share a desire for a clean, pared-back expression of Rolls-Royce. Like the rest of the motor car’s progressive design, this hidden-until-lit feature hides the complexity required to create a sense of effortless luxury with a simple decorative statement.”
