Even the final journey deserves a touch of grandeur. Biemme Special Cars, an Italian hearse builder, has pushed the boundaries with its latest creation—the ‘Ghoster.’ This bespoke hearse, based on the iconic Rolls-Royce Ghost, emerges as a luxurious final journey vehicle that exudes opulence at every turn.
While the front facade mirrors the elegance found in showroom-purchased Rolls-Royce Ghosts, the ‘Ghoster’ undergoes a significant transformation to accommodate its unique purpose. The sedan’s wheelbase is extended, creating a seamless integration of a custom coffin-carrying compartment without compromising the standard passenger space.
The Rolls-Royce’s opulent interior receives additional sound deadening, Briar wood accents, folding tables, and an unexpected touch—an onboard mini-bar.
In a surprising move for a vehicle of this nature, the ‘Ghoster’ boasts a high-power 18-speaker, 1300-watt sound system. This addition transforms the hearse into a mobile concert hall, providing a unique and somewhat unconventional element to the somber proceedings.
Moving to the rear, the ‘Ghoster’ showcases meticulous engineering. The chassis undergoes extension through a tube-frame structure, blending steel and glass seamlessly. This design not only adds to the vehicle’s aesthetics but also ensures stability and strength.
Practicality meets sophistication as the coffin-loading platform operates automatically, accompanied by bright lights.
Underneath the hood, the ‘Ghoster’ maintains the powerful twin-turbo 6.75-litre V12 engine found in the Rolls-Royce Ghost. With a robust output of 420kW/850Nm, the hearse ensures a smooth and powerful journey to the final resting place.
Biemme Special Cars keeps mum on the price of the Rolls-Royce Ghoster hearse. However, industry speculation suggests a figure surpassing the approximate $650,000 tag of standard versions of the luxury sedan in Australia. For those seeking the epitome of sophistication in their final journey, the ‘Ghoster’ promises an unparalleled experience.
While the ‘Ghoster’ takes center stage, Biemme Special Cars offers a range of hearse options based on Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, and Jaguar models. This diversity ensures that discerning clients have a selection that aligns perfectly with their preferences.
