Ghost: Unveiling the Elegance of the Ethereal

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ghost is among the oldest name for the world’s leading luxury brand

•Ghost carries the tradition of Rolls-Royce names based on the ethereal realm

•Ghost conveys a sense of subtle elegance, the kind of luxury that lurked in the shadows, never ostentatious but always present.

•Rolls-Royce has reached into the ethereal realm over the past century for some of the most iconic names in luxury

•Rolls-Royce Ghost embodies the silence, power, and poise shared with its spiritual inspiration

“Rolls-Royce motor cars named after spirits or ethereal entities evoke a sense of mystique. This tradition has deep historical roots, carrying on a tradition of more than a century. As the most respected name in luxury, Rolls-Royce has always stood outside and above the automotive arena, and distinctive names like Ghost and Spectre differentiate our brand from all others. Rolls-Royce commissions are instantly recognizable not just by their design but also by their names.” — Martin Fritsches, President & CEO, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, NA

The tradition of naming Rolls-Royce motor cars after spirits, mythical beings, or celestial bodies dates to the early 20th century. It is deeply rooted in the brand’s history and consistently upholds a sense of continuity and heritage. The tradition started with the Grey Ghost, soon followed by The Silver Ghost which was a name bestowed upon one of the brand’s most historic models. Prior to this christening, the model was commonly known as the 40/50 hp, or its smaller counterpart, the 20 hp. Silver Ghost was a name that exuded a certain mystique, a blend design and classic allure, an embodiment of power and poise. Its name matched its essence.

Ghost: Unveiling the Elegance of the Ethereal
Silver Ghost quickly became a legendary vehicle that set numerous endurance records in the early 20th century. Owners soon discovered that it was more than just a car; it was an experience. It was a companion that whispered tales of timeless luxury and drove them through life with an air of sophistication. Silver Ghost was not just an automobile; it was a work of art, a piece of luxury that blended artisanship and engineering. More than a century later the name speaks of tradition, innovation, and luxury. It is a name hinting at the extraordinary, as if the car possessed qualities that were not entirely of this world.

The first Goodwood era Rolls-Royce Ghost, revealed in 2009, rekindled the rich blend of history and mythology. It pays homage to the original Silver Ghost. Today, Ghost represents modernity and allure in the brand’s lineup. This name choice not only celebrates the company’s heritage but also symbolizes the ethereal, whisper-quiet, and ghostly smooth ride that the modern Rolls-Royce Ghost provides, emphasizing the brand’s commitment to luxury and innovation.

Rolls-Royce Ghost has become an enduring legend, a name synonymous with luxury, artisanship, and a touch of the ethereal. It proved that a name could be more than just letters; it could be a portal to a world of elegance and excellence. In the world of luxury, the name Ghost became a byword for perfection.

The names chosen for Rolls-Royce vehicles carry a symbolic weight that reflects the qualities and values the company wishes to associate with their cars. Names like Ghost, Phantom, Wraith, and now Spectre convey an air of mystique, grace, and timelessness. Other names, including Corniche, Dawn, and Shadow, evoke a more fleeting concept or emotion. Regardless, a Rolls-Royce motor cars’ name is evocative of the unparalleled quality and Bespoke craftsmanship that goes into every Rolls-Royce vehicle.


SHINee’s TAEMIN releases his fourth mini album, Guilty, via SM Entertainment [AVAILABLE HERE]. His first solo comeback in over two years is a sonic journey of moods – dancing between guilt, hopefulness, heartbreak, and contentment.

The dark title track “Guilty” paints a picture of a selfish love, where the protagonist hurts the other person as their own way of loving. Backed by a luxurious, 30-piece string orchestra and TAEMIN’s signature killer vocals that flutter effortlessly between falsetto and hushed spoken word parts, this dramatic track pairs perfectly with his previous releases like “Criminal.” Watch the music video for “Guilty” HERE.

The six-track mini album also features “The Rizzness,” a self-confident hip-hop track that encourages listeners to drown out the opinion of others by listening to your own voice. The mellow hip-hop based track “She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not” evokes a sense of loneliness, while “Not Over You” is a moody alt-pop track harmonizing dreamy chords with rhythmic drums and profound vocals that hears TAEMIN singing about a broken heart unable to accept the end of a great love. On “Night Away,” TAEMIN paints a romantic picture of intimate moments spent with a loved one over ethereal synths, and gentle guitar chords. “Blue” is a hopeful closer, hued by TAEMIN’s delicate yet strong vocals that soar over an emotive production. 

Known as the “Idol of Idols,” the multi award-winning artist TAEMIN has released three full-length albums and four mini albums – each release propelled by standout performances that have cemented the star’s place in K-Pop history. 

Prior to the release of Guilty, TAEMIN performed a solo set at Arena for KCON LA in August, rounding out a bumper summer for the trailblazing K-Pop group SHINee. They marked their 15th anniversary with the release of their latest album, HARD, in June and kicked off a three-night concert in Seoul, followed by a headline performance at KPOP LUX SBS Super Concert in Madrid.

Turin Motor Show

On October 30, 1963, the Turin Motor Show – then one of the biggest motoring events in the world – opened the doors to its 45th edition. At the Maserati stand, the Quattroporte made its debut. Today marks the 60th anniversary of the luxury sedan destined to mark new pathways for six generations of motorists.

This is a celebration that recalls some major milestones for the Modena brand, as Quattroporte is one of the greatest expressions of the House of the Trident. From stylistic leaps to innovations and technical developments, Quattroporte encapsulates a journey into one of the most exclusive parts of motoring. This luxury sports sedan has long served a specific cross-section of society behind the wheel and launched a new automotive segment.

As with so many other iconic cars that have been a sign of their times, ever since its debut in the early 1960s the Quattroporte has garnered acclaim and has inspired successive generations. This is a product that has been able to reinvent itself with no fear of pushing the envelope, one faithful to the pursuit of excellence in design and performance. With over a century of history and more than 75,000 Quattroporte models produced, Maserati has created a car capable of being constantly innovative while remaining true to its roots over the years.

Brought about as a result of intuition and the audacity of the Italian marque, the first-generation Quattroporte was a pioneer, featuring a roaring 8-cylinder racing-derived engine which was enhanced by a dynamic yet elegant design and a refined interior.

Positioned over the years as a “living room on the move,” or a “limousine with a racing spirit,” the initial version could reach 230 km/h. A majestic car with extremely welcoming spaces and regal allure, Quattroporte has always been accustomed to the limelight and was destined to generate a fortunate lineage of cars that can still surprise to this day. 

It is representative of the passion and talent of all those involved in the project over the years – Frua plotted the initial curvature, followed by other masters including Bertone, Giugiaro, Gandini, and Pininfarina, through to the Maserati Centro Stile, home to the latest and current generation of Quattroporte. An entire family of technicians, mechanics, test drivers, and designers took it from the blueprints to the road. Quattroporte has long been and still remains the jewel in the crown of the Modena company’s intense story and in the professional lives of so many people.

While the second-generation Quattroporte was a more daring attempt, the Quattroporte III – in the hands of De Tomaso – marked a resounding success; followed by a new challenge that was fully overcome toward the end of the intense 1990s; then by a model that severed ties with the past while remaining faithful to its winning formula as did the multi-award-winning 2003 generation, and that – with the sixth-generation – has taken to the stage once again in its most modern version years later. After all the restyling, progress in engineering, changes in corporate structure, and the countless models produced, this sedan has retained its potent approach to exclusivity.  

In the garages of the most discerning motorists, royalty, in the background of memorable films (having been featured in more than 60 productions), photographed on red carpets or accompanying the highest-ranking officials at events, and beloved by the most significant VIPs in numerous industries, Quattroporte was a mainstay of the automotive landscape in the 20th century and remains so in the new millennium. Sixty years later and after traveling innumerable miles, it continues its journey as an undisputed star of its times.

Davide Grasso, Maserati CEO: “Quattroporte is Maserati’s history. A car that tells our story and has prestigiously represented us in the world of saloon cars, for over half a century. Since 1963, it has chronicled the evolution of one of the most beloved and appreciated Maserati models, inaugurating a segment that had previously been uncharted territory. A car that has succeeded in reinventing itself every time without ever losing its identity, in adapting to the passage of time, to changes in society, to advancements in technology and industry, and to trends, it has become the choice of our most select clientele, as well as the world of entertainment and for the international establishment. It’s a source of pride for us and an acknowledgement of the distinctively Italian character that Maserati has always aimed to export around the world with its creations. Now as before, Quattroporte remains our flagship, synonymous with a unique luxury. It’s appreciated for its refinement, attention to detail, superior performance, quality, and enveloping spaciousness – all of this combined with its timeless stylistic touch – has made Quattroporte eternal.”

Maserati S.p.A.
Maserati produces a complete range of unique cars, immediately recognisable for their extraordinary personality. Thanks to their style, technology, and innately exclusive character, they delight the most discerning, demanding tastes and have always been a benchmark for the global automotive industry. A tradition of successful cars, each of them redefining what makes an Italian sports car in terms of design, performance, comfort, elegance, and safety, currently available in more than 70 markets internationally. The ambassadors of this heritage are the Quattroporte flagship, the Ghibli sports sedan, the Levante – the first SUV made by Maserati, and the Grecale, the “everyday exceptional” SUV, all models characterised by the use of the highest quality materials and excellent technical solutions. A range equipped with 4-cylinder hybrid powertrains – available for Ghibli, Grecale and Levante – V6 and V8 petrol engines, with rear-wheel and four-wheel drive, embodying the performance DNA of the Trident Brand, now completed with the Grecale Folgore, Maserati’s first full-electric SUV. The top of the range is made up of the MC20 super sports car and the MC20 Cielo spyder, powered by the ground-breaking 100% Maserati Nettuno V6 engine, which incorporates F1-derived technologies into the power unit of a standard production car for the first time. The new GranTurismo is available with both the powerful V6 petrol engine, derived from the Nettuno, and a 100% electric version: the GranTurismo Folgore, the first car in the Modena-based brand’s history to adopt this solution. By 2025, all Maserati models will also be available in a full-electric version, and the entire Maserati range will run on electricity alone by 2030.

Holliday’s Helping Hands Foundation, an organization formed to help stamp out homelessness in Los Angeles County, will host its 2nd Annual Shining Through Service Gala to be held on Saturday, November 11 at the Mayborne Hotel (formerly the Montage) in Beverly Hills (225 N Canon Drive).  ABC7 Ashley McKay, a field reporter for “Eyewitness News,” will emcee the event.

Among those recognized will be the Honorable Karen Bass, mayor of Los Angeles, who will receive an award for her commitment to solving this mounting crisis.  Also receiving recognition will be popular film and TV actress Taraji P. Henson, who started the Boris Henson Foundation in honor of her late father to bring much-needed mental health services to minority communities; and Upward Housing whose mission is to prevent homelessness through proactive intervention.

The black-tie fundraiser will begin with a red-carpet rollout and VIP reception at 6 pm, dinner and the presentation of awards at 7:30 pm, and live music and dancing to follow announced Miss Katina Holliday, whose eponymous nonprofit organization has emerged as a leading force in fighting homelessness.

Tickets to the event are $300 ($370 for VIP) each; corporate packages ranging from table sponsors at $2,500 to the $20,000 platinum level are still available.  All corporate sponsors will receive 8 tickets to the gala and a number of other VIP amenities.  In addition, a lifelong seat on Holliday’s Helping Hands founding 50 is available for $25,000. For more information, call (310) 714-2104 or contact

“Last year’s inaugural Shining Through Service Gala was a huge success that attracted more than 300 guests who all share one dream — eradicating homelessness in our communities,” says Miss Holliday.  “We look forward to gathering together again in the spirit of gratitude for what we have and benevolence for our fellow human beings who are suffering.  We are so very grateful to have Miss MacKay lend her considerable talents for the evening.”

Miss Holliday, a registered family nurse practitioner by training, started HHH in 2018 to provide interim housing for LA’s homeless population.  She also started the Shine Ambassador Program to help these vulnerable individuals train and prepare for jobs in the food service, landscape maintenance, screen printing and customer service fields.  The three-month program is designed so that enrollees are able to build their resumes in preparation for future employment.  

“In cities big and small all over the U.S., the problem of homelessness is spreading like wildfire.  Tents are being erected under freeways, on sidewalks, in parks and even now in residential neighborhoods and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight,” says Miss Holliday.  “People are seeing the problem, but many are not recognizing that great strides are being made every day to reverse this disturbing trend.  I’m proud to say that Holliday’s Helping Hands is part of the solution and we’re hoping that the public will show their support by attending our Shining Through Service Gala.”

The SENTRY is back in an all-new series by two of Marvel’s most promising new creators, writer Jason Loo (X-Men Unlimited) and artist Luigi Zagaria (Midnight Suns). The saga of Bob Reynolds and the Sentry was one of the defining Marvel Comics mysteries of the 2000s, and now, it’s time to reveal a whole new layer behind Marvel’s Golden Guardian! Bob Reynolds is long gone, but the limitless power of the Sentry can never be destroyed, and if he doesn’t return to claim it, others will… Who will be next to wield the power of a million exploding suns?

Today, fans can check out all the covers for SENTRY #1 and designs for some of the new characters who will seize on the opportunity to take over as Sentry! From various walks of life, some will use the power to make the world a better place while others will unleash its full destructive potential! In the end, only one will walk away as the new Sentry—ready to impact the Marvel Universe for better or for worse!

Here’s what Loo had to say about introducing this new cast:

“This entire series is a mystery where we follow Jessica Jones and Misty Knight as they figure out these catastrophic accidents caused by random strangers with the Sentry’s powers. You’re going to witness a bunch of origin stories, like Mallory Gibbs, a writer for Front Line news who lives with cerebral palsy. Farhad Anand is a mutant keeping a low profile as a DoorDish bicycle courier. And Ryan Topper, a teenage fanboy who gets to live his dream of becoming a super hero. And there are a few more further into the story. But the real question is….how are they all connected to Robert Reynolds?”

The Sentry is dead, but ordinary people all over the world are suddenly manifesting his powers and experiencing snippets of Bob Reynolds’ memories. But not everyone can be trusted with such responsibility, sparking a violent conflict to control the Sentry’s legacy. Will one of them survive long enough to emerge as the new Sentry? Or will their newfound power destroy them? When Misty Knight and Jessica Jones cross paths in search of answers, they open an investigation that will change everything you think you know about the Sentry!

Romantic picture of Mr. And Mrs. Parker together relaxing as the "ultimate" couple


Writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Marco Checchetto’s bold new take on ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN is shaping up to be full of surprises! Launching this January as the first ongoing series set in Marvel’s new Ultimate Universe, ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN will star a very different Peter Parker—an older, wiser web-slinger who balances his super hero duties with his responsibilities as a husband and a father. That’s right, Spider-Man is a married man!

Meet Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson—MR. & MRS. PARKER! They’re one of pop culture’s most iconic couples, and now readers will see them stronger than ever in the Ultimate Universe. To celebrate, Peter and MJ’s romance will be featured on a series of picture perfect variant covers by Elizabeth Torque that will adorn the first four issues of ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN. Spidey superstar Ryan Stegman also spotlights the whole Parker family on a new promotional piece.

“When we decided that we were going to do a book about an older Peter Parker becoming Spider-Man, we really wanted to lean into him starting his super hero life from a very different place than what’s traditionally expected,” Hickman explained. “Peter and MJ being married is one of many decisions we made that underline this being quite a ‘different’ kind of Spider-man story.”
