— Opening coincides with the New Delhi launch of Ghost Extended Wheelbase

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars continues its expansion in India with the opening of a new, larger showroom at Mohan Co-operative Industrial Estate, Mathura Road, New Delhi.

The 702 m² facility, which replaces the retail space at Connaught Road, has room to showcase up to five cars. It also boasts interior and customer lounge specifications to the latest Rolls-Royce global standards. These features will present clients with a refined and private setting in which to configure their cars. The lounge is fully equipped with the latest wood and leather samples from the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England allowing customers to commission the Bespoke department to create cars as unique as their own fingerprints.

Yadur Kapur, Director, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars New Delhi said: “The opening of this new showroom is a great statement of our ambitions for the brand. This is a space befitting the quality of a Rolls-Royce motor car and the impeccable taste of our customers.”

We are committed to building on the recent success we have enjoyed in a market with a long and rich association with the brand.” He added: “This is the perfect space to showcase our latest model, Ghost Extended Wheelbase. I am delighted to say feedback from the media and customers has been overwhelmingly positive since its global launch.”

Ghost Extended Wheelbase makes New Delhi Debut 

Ghost Extended Wheelbase, the sixth new Rolls-Royce model made its New Delhi debut at the showroom opening.

Building on the enormous success of Ghost in India, the car combines segment leading cabin space with the driver dynamic that has endeared so many to Ghost. Rear-cabin passengers will have 170mm more room than the already ample space Ghost owners enjoy. A panoramic sunroof as standard bathes the cabin in natural light contributing to an ambience that exudes lavish comfort and serenity. Sumptuous lambs-wool carpets and multimedia theatre-configuration, both as standard enhance the super-luxurious feel of the car. Beautiful Malabar wood, sourced from Kerala in the South of India is one of an array of ethically sourced, hand built wood packages available.

The award-winning Ghost has seen exceptional demand since its 2010 launch in India. Designed as a more informal Rolls-Royce, it has introduced a new generation of customers to the brand, wowed by its combination of drivability and hallmark Rolls-Royce exuberant luxury. With the Indian customer at the forefront of the design team’s thinking, Ghost Extended Wheelbase simply takes the principle even further. Customers who require slightly more rear-cabin space to transport families in uncompromising comfort are able to do so whilst still enjoying the peerless Ghost driving experience; in essence it is the perfect car for all occasions.

Historical context:
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars re-entered the Indian market in 2005 after an absence of 50 years. The marque has a long and proud heritage in the country. For many Maharajas in the era of the Raj, a highly customised Rolls-Royce was the grand statement of choice. This tradition is evoked in the incredible work of the Bespoke department.

It has taken Rolls-Royce Motor Cars just seven years to achieve record sales of 2,711 cars in 2010 since Phantom was first launched in 2003. It took Rolls-Royce Motors, the previous company, more than 70 years to achieve the same figure in a single year.
