Rolls-Royce Discloses Soundproofed Isolated Rear Cabin

Rolls Royce has come with a new option at the Chengdu motor show which allows the passengers to have a completely private space in the rear of their car, sealing them off from both the outside world as well as from the driver.

The Private Suite option introduced by the Rolls Royce adds a privacy screen between the rear passenger area and the two front seats as well as increases the acoustic insulation to block out the sound from the passenger area for the added privacy. An intercom communication is also present between the front and rear occupants at the rear passenger’s discretion. With this, the driver can contact the rear compartment but the occupants can choose to reject the call if they need.

The privacy screen is made of the electrochromatic glass and can be turned to opaque at the flick of a switch. A small opening in the divider is present in the Rolls- Royce to allow the objects to be seen before being passed through.

In order to provide more privacy to the passengers, the windows are fitted with privacy glass as well as full curtains which allow the occupants to be shielded from the outside. It also has the option of blocking the view out of the windows.

Two 12.0-inch monitors have been mounted to the dividing structure between the front and rear with device connectivity as well as access to the car’s infotainment system. The option is a part of the Rolls -Royce’s customisation programme.



Rolls-Royce Pays Homage to the Silver Ghost

In 1907, Rolls-Royce made history and captured global attention when its Silver Ghost, which was registered and designated AX 201, set the record for the longest non-stop motor run of 15,000 miles without hiccups. From then on, it became the epitome of the automaker’s commitment to attaining the pinnacle in luxury carmaking.

This year, the legendary British automaker pays homage to the Silver Ghost with a collection of contemporary Ghosts outfitted with certain design elements and features referencing the original AX 201.

At the tip of the hood is a solid sterling-silver Spirit of Ecstasy figurine with a black-gold-plated collar and a copper AX 201 Hallmark around the base. The wheel surrounds are chrome and the ‘Silver Ghost’ label is engraved on them. Meanwhile, Tudor oak features with pure silver inlays are prominent in the interior. The car also boasts a distinctive coachline which is hand-painted with pure silver particles.
