Ghost is the essence of in its simplest, purest form. Every inch delivers on the power of simplicity. The classic proportions are all present and correct: the 2:1 ratio of the height of the wheels to the height of the body; the long wheelbase and bonnet; the short overhang at the front and long overhang at the rear. Exterior Designer, Andreas Thurner says "…it looks natural, not styled". Its powerful presence leaves no doubt that it's cut from the same cloth as the rest of the marque - exactly what we set out to achieve.
Ghost "Nothing should distract from the pleasure of driving Ghost. Nothing does." says Helmut Riedl, Engineering Director. It is a simple pleasure, offering a seemingly endless surge of power when the throttle is pressed down.
The V12 engine remains whisper-quiet even when accelerating - Ghost's occupants will only notice the scenery pass at a quicker rate. Engineered to grip the road at all times, it creates a more dynamic drive and the famous Rolls-Royce 'magic carpet ride' for driver and passengers.
It's a true Rolls-Royce driving experience - from the authority driving position you get a commanding view along the Silver Satin bonnet, past the Spirit of Ecstasy to the road ahead.
Inside, Ghost is refined and cosseting. Entering and exiting is both effortless and graceful - the low sill height means you step 'onto' rather than 'into' Ghost. The unique rear-hinged coach doors open to 83 degrees adding an extra sense of theatre for the rear passengers.
Once inside, you are greeted by a simple yet contemporary interior with large expanses of soft full grain leather, natural wood veneers and Blenheim wool carpets. The cashmere-blend roof lining adds to the sense of openness and space, enhanced by the optional Panorama sunroof.
It's like being cocooned in your own convivial private sanctuary that leaves you relaxed and unruffled after the longest journey.
