Kim Kardashian Steps Out in Her Gorgeous, Custom 2022 Rolls-Royce Ghost

Make no mistake, there is nothing left to chance to Kim Kardashian’s “casual” public appearances. Most of them are paid photo ops, while the rest are self-promotion, because you simply can’t become the most famous woman in showbiz and one of the richest celebrities out there without planning several steps ahead.

Kim Kardashian is no fashion icon, no matter how much she – and estranged husband Kanye West, Ye by his most recent legal name – tried to make it happen. She is widely admired and influential in certain circles, but to most people she is a curiosity, at best. The same extends to her taste in cars, which verges on ridiculous (of the kind you point the finger at and then laugh yourself silly) or the outrageous.

Over the past couple of years, though, we’ve seen an evolution here. Kim Kardashian, once the posterchild for anything eccentric in terms of performance, design or customization, is trying a more subdued look. It’s a different type of subdued, the kind she borrowed from Ye, which is meant to convey the impression of grandeur and ultimate wealth under the guise of simplicity. It’s the equivalent of paying thousands of dollars on a basic outfit in neutral colors.

As regards Kim’s cars with this particular styling, they’re not inelegant. A good example in this sense is the Cadillac Escalade ESV she got from Platinum Motorsports in March this year. A more recent one is the 2022 Rolls-Royce Ghost, also from Platinum. Platinum Motorsports boasts of being an “automotive store” that is a leading “designer and creator of high-end automotive culture and lifestyle,” and they’ve been working with Kim for over two decades.

During this time, they’ve delivered to her more Rolls-Royces than a regular human being is likely to see in person in their entire life, and that’s saying a lot. Their recent work has involved Kim in a co-designer capacity, in that she’s had an active say in how the final work came out.

She took delivery of her brand new Ghost in July and, three months later, she’s still driving it – and it’s still turning heads. She stepped out for one of those paid photo-ops (she’s wearing the unreleased Apple’s Beats Fits Pro and head-to-toe Balenciaga), driving the Ghost in Los Angeles. The tweet at the bottom of the page links to photos from this outing.

With a bright, contrasting and gorgeous interior in orange and white, the Ghost is painted a very special matte silver shade and wears several custom touches throughout. Platinum Motorsports detailed all of them in a video released when Kim took delivery of the car – after all, what sense is there to make cars for a special client if you don’t toot your own horn about it?
