Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II, the new Ghost in town is expected to be arriving soon in the market. The unveiling had taken place at Geneva Motor Show 2014. But let’s inform you, the British carmaker has spawned its Series II trinkets in form of ‘conventional’ Ghost Series II and Ghost Series ‘Extended Wheelbase’. So, not any of the Ghost buyers shall be disappointed with this new adornment. Confirming other details, been clear at first, the under hood technicalities are done with the existing twin-turbo, 6.6 litre, V12 engine from the existing Ghost. The conventional Series II reaches 0-62 mph in a mere 4.9 (that same figure) whereas the EWB (extended wheelbase) is a point slower, i.e. the whole 5 seconds for 0-62 mph. Both the cars held power of 563 horses and 780 Nm of torque.
Now on the flipside, where the engineers of Rolls had concentrated a lot, the outers, is tweaked extensively, but not that remarkably which we were expecting of. However, the changes start from the front, from the LED headlamps. The whole cluster is redesigned and now houses daytime running lights. That’s the most prominent change which can be flaunt easily, otherwise the chrome outing on the air intakes is another one to show it off how’s the new Ghost is different than the previous one, but it can be admired if the admirer knows it, we mean the people like us and not exactly the layman. Continuing further, the bonnet and bumpers are slightly re-sculpted. Hope so, it isn’t so remarkable, one has to sneak his eyes deep into them to gag the notice. The bonnet is slightly tapered, and an wake channel is evolved just behind the Spirit of Ecstasy to voyeur it for a jet-type astonishment, or a luxury yacht for some. But accompanied by the re-designed bumpers the Rolls is seemed feeling more powerful, more spacious and a lot meaner than before. The famous waft line too is been re-designed on Ghost Series II to lean further forwards emphasising the car’s effortless dynamism.
Moving inside, the cabin is designed to fit a King, we mean the true Rolls-Royce standard with British style. This time, the engineers wanted customers to retain the car for a quite longer duration, and so the assimilation of technology was a must to be embedded in. As a result, the on-board Wi-Fi connects its buyers to the outer world even in the least. And the world’s best audio system gives them the pleasure of being there inside. The icing on the cake is dominated by Satellite Aided Transmission (SAT) which was debuted at Wraith first. The SAT judges the roads ahead in connection with the satellite and then decides the gear shift, rooming in convenience for the drivers to cruise hassle free. That’s all the new Ghost is pinned underneath on the platform of BMW 7-Series.
“The Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II is the ultimate entrepreneur’s business tool. Following the worldwide success of its predecessor, I am confident that this re-designed and updated Rolls-Royce will continue to attract increasing numbers of new customers to the marque, in particular business entrepreneurs seeking an oasis of calm in a frenetic business world,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, at the unveiling in Geneva.
“As a design statement, Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II continues to transcend time,” commented Giles Taylor, Director of Design for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “This is ensured by the deft treatment of features such as the new headlights, the new wake channel on the bonnet and surfacing that lend the car a more dynamic, purposeful stance and hint at the cutting edge technology inside. I am very pleased with the overall sense of design harmony.
