You've spent a lifetime surrounded by liquid carbon, trading oil like it was your own lifeblood. So when you sit in your car, you obviously want to be surrounded by solid carbon, because that makes sense. Enter the Rolls-Royce Ghost Carbon Edition.

The Rolls-Royce Ghost Carbon Edition premiered at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China, and the always-prescient Indian Autos Blog managed to snatch a few pictures of it. The sill plate housing on the car read that it was built in England for "1st Carbon Fiber in China," possibly hinting at its future as a China-only trim level. But if you wanted one and you lived in Belgium, I'm sure Rolls would oblige.

If the first thing you noticed about the Rolls-Royce Ghost Carbon Edition is that the hood is painted black, and that it's not actually made out of carbon fiber, that's good, because clearly you're paying attention. But the second thing you'll notice about the Carb', which is what I'm calling it now, is that the interior does appear to have replaced the wood with a lot of the woven stuff.


But if you're thinking that the Rolls-Royce Ghost is now some sort of sleek little racer, because you replaced some dash pieces, you are nuts. Just completely bonkers. Crazy. Wild. Off your rocker. On drugs, maybe?


Because it's still a Rolls-Royce. Which means that instead of now weighing just slightly more than the entirety of Planet Earth, it still weighs just as much as all of Planet Earth. Though if you gave me one, I definitely wouldn't be complaining.
