Christened as Ghost Elegance, Rolls-Royce claims this is first luxury car to be finished in a paint created from 1,000 crushed diamonds. The colour has been named 'Diamond Stardust' and it is the most expensive paint to grace the body of a Rolls-Royce model.

The paint has been created at Rolls-Royce's headquarters at Goodwood, UK, by subjecting 1,000 ethically-sourced diamonds in a special process. Goodwood's technical laboratory leader, Paolo Travaglia and his team, took two months to make the paint from diamonds. The unique paint has been applied to the top section of the car. The flanks of the car are accented with Mugello Red and Black twin coachlines. The luxury car also boasts of 21-inch wheels that are hand-painted with a Mugello Red pinstripe.
