Revealed back in April, the Rolls-Royce Ghost Alpine Trial Centenary celebrates the passing of 100 years since James Radley’s Silver Ghost took part in the historic 1,820-mile long Austrian Alpine Trials. On the outside, the bespoke luxury vehicle features a blue and silver paintjob, while the interior sports “the topography and distances of the Alpine route.”

“The 1913 Alpine Trial was an extraordinary moment in the rich history of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars,” said Torsten Muller-Otvos, CEO Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “The standards of engineering and pioneer spirit required to achieve such feats stands as inspiration to everyone associated with the marque. The Bespoke Alpine Trial Centenary Collection is a fitting tribute to these achievements. It is testament to the enduring quality of a Rolls-Royce motor car that this 2013 car will be joined by a participant in the original trials, the 1913 Radley Silver Ghost.”
