Rolls-Royce Ghost Six Senses concept
China sees ultra-lavish edition at Beijing Show

Okay, you can see it, and you can touch it. And although famously you’re only supposed to be able to hear the ticking of the clock (although that’s now electric and you can’t) you can of course hear it. But this is the Six Senses Ghost Concept that’s debuted in China, so what are the other three senses?
Backtracking to sight, this Ghost is in pearlescent Carrara White with new wheels and inside there is Walnut Burr veneer.
As for sound, the Ghost is boasting an enhanced sound system with upgraded amplifier and what they have dubbed ‘exciter’ speakers hidden in the leather roof lining.
So to smell then, or aroma – that should come from the natural materials like leather and they’ve added woody spice to the walnut veneer.
Fine, but can you taste the Rolls? Ah well they’re cheating a bit with this one, pointing out the chiller drinks cabinet between the rear seats.
Of course there’s plenty to touch up, oo er… From the cool chrome to the smooth veneers and this Rolls gets natural grain leather for the first time. Plus of course there’s that lambswool rug.
‘The Ghost Six Senses concept is a luxurious environment designed for the most discerning of individuals,’ says Torsten Muller-Otvos, the CEO of Rolls-Royce.
‘It delights senses and draws you into somewhere that transcends the interior of a car. Relax for a few moments and you will experience something that is hard to define, but which our customers understand so well.
Anyway, we only counted five senses so far…?
‘It can be likened to an aura, a sense that the stunning hand-made interior embodies something of the heart and soul of each proud craftsperson involved in its creation. That’s uniquely Rolls-Royce sixth sense that this car presents so elegantly.’
