The Rolls Royce Ghost
Ghost is the essence of Rolls-Royce in its simplest, purest form. Every inch delivers on the power of simplicity. The classic Rolls-Royce proportions are all present and correct: the 2:1 ratio of the height of the wheels to the height of the body; the long wheelbase and bonnet; the short overhang at the front and long overhang at the rear.
Ghost is built around a steel monococque chassis and suspension system including Dynamic Stability Control and Active Roll Stabilisation to create a more dynamic drive and the Rolls-Royce 'magic carpet ride'. Powered by a new twin turbo 6.6-litre V12 engine, it is virtually silent, with 80% of its torque available from idle. Coupled with the 8-speed ZF gearbox it accelerates from 0-62 mph in just 4.9 seconds and has a governed top-speed of 155 mph.
Inside, Ghost is refined and cosseting. Entering and exiting is both effortless and graceful - the low sill height means you step 'onto' rather than 'into' Ghost. The unique rear-hinged coach doors open to 83 degrees adding an extra sense of theatre for the rear passengers. Once inside, you are greeted by a simple yet contemporary interior with large expanses of soft full grain leather, natural wood veneers and Blenheim wool carpets. The cashmere-blend roof lining adds to the sense of openness and space, enhanced by the optional Panorama sunroof.
Each Ghost is hand-built to order, so you can choose the finishing touches to make it uniquely yours. It's a simple but absorbing process that starts with your choice of external colour, complementary leather upholstery, veneer and wheels. In keeping with Rolls-Royce tradition you can personalise your Ghost further to suit your individual needs. Choose from a wide range of options and accessories - from the new Silver Satin bonnet finish to some of the most advanced technology ever to feature in a Rolls-Royce.
