Applied to a
Rolls-Royce Ghost Elegance
By: Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Goodwood, UK
"The paint is the most expensive to grace the body of a Rolls-Royce and the process was also long and complex.
A specialist team at the carmaker’s bespoke division worked closely with the diamond specialists Jean Boulle Luxury Group who specifically sourced the natural gem-quality diamonds from Namibia, meticulously examining the dimensions of each precious stone to evaluate the transmission and reflection of light. They then created a very fine diamond powder which the Rolls-Royce technicians infused with the paint for a smooth surface and subtle shimmer. Finally, the master painter at Rolls-Royce applied the last touches with a squirrel-hair paint brush.
The result really is magical."
“Diamonds are Rolls-Royce’s best friend,” jokes director of design Giles Taylor
