Following a long teaser campaign and various rumours, the all-new Rolls-Royce Ghost has finally arrived. Now sporting four-wheel drive, ground breaking technology and a whole new philosophy, the stunning new Ghost is certainly something to behold. Here’s all the details that we have so far.
Built at the company’s home in Goodwood, the second-generation Rolls-Royce Ghost no longer uses BMW-based underpinnings and instead utilises Rolls-Royce’s own flexible aluminium spaceframe – the same one used in the new Phantom and Cullinan. The result being a Ghost that is 90mm longer and 30mm wider than the previous generation.
Rolls-Royce have pitched the new Ghost as their most high-tech model to date. They aren’t wrong. It all starts with the clever new four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering systems that work to create a smoother drive in all conditions. They’ve then combined those drive systems with the ‘Flagbearer’ system, which uses complex road scanning to prepare the suspension, and Satellite Aided Transmission that pre-selects gears based on the road ahead. All of that makes for the smoothest ride for a Rolls-Royce ever.
Outside of the clever new technology, the Rolls-Royce Ghost retains the 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged V12 that we know and love. On this occasion, however, it’s been updated to offer 563bhp and 623lb ft of torque.
Design wise, the new Ghost remains familiar but features modern updates such as 20 LED lights within the grille, a new illuminated fascia on the passenger side of the dashboard and new laser adaptive headlights. It’s a truly stunning thing, with the updated front end complimenting the familiar silhouette perfectly.
As you’d expect, the interior remains an unbelievably nice place to be. Along with the highest quality materials that you can imagine, the interior now features an 18-channel premium audio system, electronic parking and electronically opening doors.
You’ll also have an entirely purified environment thanks to a Micro Environment Purification System that removes ultra-fine particles from the interior.
We’re big fans of the second-generation Rolls-Royce Ghost and we’re very excited to see one in the flesh! What do you think of this latest Rolls-Royce? Let us know your thoughts on Facebook, Instagram or Linkedin.
