Starting January 31st, 2014 and running through February 18th, 2015 China will be in the Year of the Horse. According to the Chinese zodiac, each year is under the sign of a strong animal, and each repeats every 12 years, with the Horse bringing fortune and many changes in one’s life.
Of course, this has nothing to do with cars, but there are many people out there that govern their lives by the zodiac, especially in China, so it was expected that automakers would take this opportunity to rake in some extra profits.
Rolls Royce is one automaker that has no shame in producing special-edition models for events like this, and it did so with the new Ghost Majestic Horse Edition. This model will be built in limited quantities and will take inspiration from classical interpretations of the horse in traditional Chinese art.
Additionally, with 2014 is the first time in over 50 years that the element wood and the horse are marked together, the interior of the car will be all about wood.
There is no mention of performance upgrades, so we assume that this Ghost Majestic Horse Edition boasts the same 6,592 cc, V-12 engine with 563 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque.
Deliveries of the new Rolls-Royce Ghost Majestic Horse Edition will begin in the second quarter of 2014.
