But while embodying all of Rolls-Royce’s classic elegance, Ghost exudes an informal aura. “We wanted this to be less reminiscent of the traditional Parthenon style and more like a jet intake,” said Chief Designer Ian Cameron. However, do not mistake informal for unsophisticated.
Ghost rides on a bed of air with double-wishbone front suspension and multi-link rear suspension and is powered by a brand new, 6.6 litre twin-turbo V12 engine, unique to the model. Complex electronic aids keep it composed on virtually any surface. Its handling and safety systems operate as one, imperceptible to driver and passengers, but maintaining optimum contact with the road in any condition.
Inside, from heating and cooling to seating and sound, Ghost offers riders the familiar Rolls-Royce sense of luxury, safety and “an escape from the outside world,” according to Alan Sheppard, interior designer.
There is no question. Ghost embodies 21st-century Rolls-Royce style: 100 years of production and design excellence and experience offered in modern and uncompromised style.
