Rolls-Royce May Revive Camargue And Corniche Names For New Ghost Family

Follow Viknesh

Just as the Phantom has its Coupe and Drophead convertible variants, the new 2010 Rolls-Royce Ghost sedan is expected to spawn its own two-door variants. The legacy started with cars like the Camargue and Corniche, both of which were based on the Silver Shadow, which itself is the forebear to the new Ghost.

The car’s lead exterior designer, Andreas Thurner, has previously revealed that there would be a family of models based on the Ghost platform and now a report is claiming that there will be concept versions of the new additions, or as Rolls-Royce likes to call them, “Experimental Cars.”

Both a coupe and convertible based on the Ghost are due to hit the streets in the next couple of years but their development is not guaranteed. Rolls-Royce is in fact building the concepts to help gauge customer demand.

Furthermore, according to Rolls-Royce CEO Ian Robertson, the Ghost name may not even make it on the new cars suggesting that the automaker may be planning to revive names like Camargue for the coupe and Corniche for the convertible.

Other models possibly in the pipeline include a long-wheelbase Ghost as well as a gasoline-electric hybrid version.

  1. I hope Rolls Royce will needs AWD and V8 or 6 Inline turbo twin (BMW) near future you will good deal for half $250.000 why it will without V12 two turbo twin. reason you need a wedding's limo Rolls Royce. it will real interior and exterior.

  2. Corniche is justified but Camargue I don't think so, they already got the most gorgeous Drophead and Phantom coupe in there to fill that void.

  3. Everytime I see a current Phantom, I can't help but remark how grotesque, garish, and tasteless they are, unlike Rollers of yore. One of my first memorable car moments was sitting in my dad's car at a light by my house, when a veteran "brass era" car pulled up alongside. I sheepishly asked "Is that a model T?" In fact it was a 1912 Silver Ghost! How much I had yet to learn, lol!
