The Ghost V-Specification boasts greater power and will only be available for customers to commission for the next six months.
The company's chief executive, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, says that the idea behind the limited edition is to celebrate "one of Ghost's defining characteristics: the exquisite 6.6-liter Rolls-Royce V12 engine."
As such the car, which can be specified as a standard or extended wheelbase model, will feature a 30bph power increase over the standard edition, which translates into a 0-62mph (100km/h) time of 4.7 seconds.
Owners will also be able to select one of five specially developed exterior paint colors for the car or to select one from the company's existing 44,000-hue palette. The vehicle will also sit on exclusive 21-inch part-polished wheels and can be specified with visible chromed exhausts.
Providing a subtle clue to passengers that the car is a little more exclusive than an everyday Rolls-Royce are V-Specification motifs which appear on the door treadplates, on the steel inlays to the front multimedia screen lid and embroidered into the rear armrest.
Completing the look is an exclusively designed clock with a black crown surrounding the face.
The order book for the V-Specification opens Wednesday but will close again in June.
