No, this Rolls-Royce hasn’t joined the long list of high-performance patrol cars operated by Dubai Police. In fact, this $400,000 Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge donned the livery of Sussex Police in the UK. Temporarily loaned to the Sussex police department, the special Ghost Black Badge was unveiled at the Chichester Police Station Open Day on Saturday. Decked with authentic lights and Sussex Police decals, the special car was a part of the effort to collect donations for the Chestnut Tree House local children’s hospice that cares for approximately 300 children and young adults.
“As a proud member of the local community, Rolls-Royce recognizes the importance of the emergency services, including the police. We were particularly pleased to see a number of our employees visiting the event with their families, and sharing their pride in the motor car they built,” said Rolls-Royce Global Communications Manager Andrew Ball.
The car has now been returned to its normal livery, with lights and Sussex Police decals removed, dispelling rumors at the event that it would be the first Rolls-Royce allocated to the Chief Constable. Unveiled last year, the Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge is a performance oriented model which has upgraded twin-turbo 6.6-liter V12 engine that produces 603 hp and 620 lb-ft of torque.
