Rolls-Royce Motor Cars unveiled the new Rolls-Royce Ghost. This second-generation model is based on the 2009 Goodwood Ghost, which became the most successful model in the company’s history of 116 years.
“The new Rolls-Royce Ghost is the most technologically advanced Rolls-Royce yet. It distils the pillars of our brand into a beautiful, minimalist, yet a highly complex product that is perfectly in harmony with our Ghost clients’ needs and perfectly in tune with the times,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
The car has a proprietary aluminium spaceframe architecture. It is packed with a 6.75-litre V12 engine, delivering 563bhp/420kW and 850Nm/627lb ft of torque to the all-wheel steer, all-wheel drivetrain with maximum torque available from just 1600rpm. The design is a reflection of Post Opulent philosophy. Minimalist and classy, the doors can be opened and closed electrically.
The model is equipped with all-wheel drive and all-wheel steering, stability control and self-drying braking systems and Planar Suspension System.
Also, there is a Micro-Environment Purification System (MEPS) consisting of highly sensitive Impurity Detection Sensors. They detect the ambient air quality and automatically switches fresh air intakes to Recirculation Mode if needed.
The interiors have a cluster of advance technologies; LED and laser headlights of 600m of illuminated range, vision assist, including day-and night-time wildlife and pedestrian warning; alertness assistant; a four-camera system with panoramic view, all-round visibility and helicopter view; active cruise control; collision warning; cross-traffic warning; lane departure and lane change warning; a 7×3 high-resolution head-up display; Wi-Fi hotspot; self-park; and the very latest navigation and entertainment system.
A remarkable highlight of the interiors is the Illuminated Fascia, a world-first innovation. It consists of a glowing Ghost nameplate surrounded by around 850 stars. This was possible due to the 152 LEDs positioned above and beneath the fascia and a 2mm-thick light guide consisting of more than 90,000 laser-etched dots.
