How do you make a perfect car better? We don’t know, but Rolls-Royce somehow managed to get it done.
Rolls-Royce has unveiled the second-generation Ghost, 11 years after its debut. The Ghost is now more comfortable, technologically-advanced and opulent.
Design changes remain minimal with more emphasis on making the Ghost look sharper, compared to the previous generation’s curvy design. You’ll notice a bolder front bumper with larger air intakes, re-designed laser headlights with C-shaped daytime-running lights and new tail-lights.
Step inside the new Ghost, and you’ll be greeted to a sanctuary of luxury and comfort. While cars today try to fit toucscreens wherever they can, Rolls-Royce still prefers to keep it old-school. The Ghost’s cabin sports a number of top-notch quality knobs and buttons, one touchscreen infotainment system centrally placed on a dashboard that can be finished in the premium material of your choice.
Under the hood, the 6.6-litre V12 is now replaced by the Phantom’s 6.75-litre, twin-turbo V12 that churns out 571 hp and 850 Nm of torque. The new V12 allows the Ghost to sprint from 0-100 kph in 4.8 seconds, and reach an electronically-limited top speed of 250 kmph.
The classic umbrella, starlight roof with 850 lights, and Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament are still retained in the 2020 Ghost. Apart from that, the new additions include a micro-environment purification system, a head-up display, 360-degree cameras, adaptive cruise control, night-time wildlife and pedestrian warning, alertness assistant, auto-park, rear-seat entertainment screens and a 1,300-watt bespoke audio system.
The second-generation Rolls-Royce Ghost is priced at Rs 6.95 crore (Ex-Showroom), with deliveries expected to begin next year.
