Platinum Motorsport Founder George Keshishyan Gets 2022 Rolls-Royce Ghost for His Birthday

George Keshishyan deals with expensive, bespoke cars every day because of his company, Platinum Motorsport. But, for his birthday, he got one of his own as the founder was treated to a 2022 Rolls-Royce Ghost by his brother, Jack.

Platinum Motorsport was founded in 1998 by brothers George and Jack Keshishyan, when they were in the 11th grade. With the rich and famous in mind, Platinum Motorsport became one of the top choices for celebrities and other car connoisseurs and a favorite of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.

As George just turned 40, besides a very lavish celebration, he also received a $450,000 present from his brother Jack: a 2022 Rolls-Royce Ghost.

In a new episode on their official YouTube channel, George takes us on a different journey than before while he unboxes some of the presents he received and gives us a good look at his new baller ride. In the video, he explained that he never had to worry about buying cars, because he’s brother has “always had that covered,” and this was no exception.

In the past, Jack had treated him to a Rolls-Royce Dawn for his 35th birthday, so getting the new Ghost didn’t come as a surprise to George.

The sedan features a black exterior and white interior with black trim, plus a Starlight Headliner, and it’s as elegant as it gets. Under the hood, Rolls-Royce placed the company's 6.75-liter V12 engine, which delivers 563 horsepower (571 ps) and a torque of 627 lb-ft (850 Nm) to all wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Ghost is able to sprint from zero to 62 mph (0-100 kph) in 4.8 seconds and has a top speed limited to 155 mph (250 kph).

Initially, though, Jack intended to give him a Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, but his father commented that it’s “too long.” He was lucky to find this one, the co-founder shared, given the chip shortage. George called the Rolls-Royce Ghost “a hot commodity” and shared there are very few options out there, and there are no possibilities to pick colors or other features. However, he does intend to give it some updates soon, some new wheels and "possibly" a body kit. We’ll keep you posted as soon as they show us the updates.

The video also shares a glimpse of the upcoming project we’ll see from the famous car shop: a Porsche GT2RS with a lot of exposed carbon fiber.
