Rolls-Royce is bringing back an iconic legend, the Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost.

The original Silver Ghost made in the early 20th century was dubbed "the best car in the world," and the 2019 limited edition model promises to live up to the legend.

"Only 35 individual cars are being made, and most of them already are purchased," said Gerry Spahn, head of communications at Rolls-Royce Motors America, in an interview with Kitco News.

Spahn noted that a baseline Silver Ghost retails at about $400,000 USD, roughly equivalent to 28,000 ounces of silver at today's prices.

The Silver Ghost is aptly named because it is not only painted silver, but contains the white metal in interior and exterior ornaments.

"In the paint in the Silver Ghost coach lines are fine particles of silver...there's different amounts. The biggest amount would be the interior silver inlay, and also the Spirit of Ecstasy," he said.

On future developments, Spahn said that Rolls-Royce will be joining other luxury car makers in producing electric vehicles.

"We're not only thinking about it, we are working on it. Our CEO, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, has been very clear that within the decade, Rolls-Royce will have an electric car available for our clients," he said.
