Rolls Royce, BMW Group owned British luxury vehicle manufacturing company has released a teaser image of the all-new Ghost. The new model will be called Ghost Series II and will be introduced at Geneva Motor Show next week and will symbolize the first major update for the vehicle its reveal back in 2009.
Rolls Royce is not a brand, which replaces its cars with great frequency. It expands its lineup, sure: what started with just Phantom sedan has since grown to include coupes, convertibles and extended wheelbase models, not to mention the addition of Ghost, followed by Wraith fastback and Ghost EWB. What Rolls does to keep its models fresh, however, is spruce them up with a Series II.
The arrival of Rolls Royce Ghost Series II at 2014 Geneva Motor Show would put it significantly ahead of schedule for when the automaker updated the Phantom. The Phantom was introduced in 2003 and was followed by Series II in 2012, giving the original a 9-year run virtually unchanged. Nevertheless, the Ghost only reached production in 2010, so introducing a Series II now would shorten that lifecycle to just 4 years. Powering the Ghost Series II will be a 6.6 liter twin turbocharged V12 powerplant which should carryover; however it could receive some modifications for reduced fuel consumption and enhanced performance.
Still, if BMW deemed now as the time to give the Ghost some updated features and a mild redesign, who are we to argue. So stay tuned for more updates on Rolls Royce Ghost Series II.
