Rolls Royce Ghost – details and images released

Rolls-Royce has officially released images and details on its new junior saloon, the Ghost. The new Roller won’t be seen publicly for a few more days when it’ll formally debut in Frankfurt. Now the world knows that the Ghost’s 6.6-liter V12 generates an impressive 575 lb-ft of torque at 1,500 rpm, along with a whopping 563 horsepower. It will need the ample power with the whole car weighing in at 2,469kg unloaded. Performance is impressive with the Ghost getting from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and up to a limited top speed of 250 km/h.

There are no surprises in the styling, which is unchanged from the 200EX concept displayed in Geneva earlier this year. The Ghost keeps the Phantom-style coach doors with built-in umbrellas. Inside, the Ghost carries over additional Phantom tricks, such as the “Power Reserve” gauge the driver gets instead of a traditional tachometer. It’s touted as being more of a driver’s car than the Phantom and has a much smaller steering wheel and the front seats have more contouring for lateral support, as well.

Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but she’s not going to come cheap.
