Rolls-Royce KoChaMongKol Is A Thai Homage To The Elephant
Inspired by Thailand’s most revered icon, the elephant, the latest bespoke project from Rolls Royce honors Thai culture and heritage. Called The Rolls-Royce KoChaMongKol, this extended wheelbase Ghost shows off an English White exterior, complemented by an exquisite black and orange Mandarin pin-striping, with an eye catching elephant motif detailing.
The exotic animal has played a significant role in Thai society throughout the ages, and is widely considered a symbol of prosperity and good fortune – the same goes for any Rolls-Royce car, if it happens to be parked right in your driveway.
Inside the cabin, the same color theme is carried over, with Smoke Grey leather back-dropping the Mandarin seat piping, the headrest embroidery, and the woodgrain.
The stylish and luxurious sedan that is the Rolls-Royce Ghost is capable of doing 0 to 100 Km/h (62 mph) in less than 5 seconds. That’s because the bonnet hides a 592-hp V12 engine that handles its business, although we’re talking about a 2.5-ton vehicle; which is why people often refer to this luxurious vehicle as an ‘elephant’.
The elephant motif can be also found throughout the interior decor, with the attention to detail becoming obvious the second you get a glimpse of what’s happening in the cockpit. There’s nothing ‘ordinary’ about this vehicle, as Rolls-Royce keeps coming up with new and interesting ways of keeping us impressed.
