The most technologically advanced Rolls-Royce yet succeeds the most successful product in the marque’s 116-year history, reflecting the ‘Post Opulent’ design philosophy, rejecting superficial expressions of wealth. The new model is built on rigid aluminium Rolls-Royce spaceframe architecture, featuring all-wheel drive, all-wheel steering and world’s first Planar suspension system for unprecedented poise, surefootedness and significantly increased agility. Power comes courtesy of the hallmark 6.75-litre twin-turbo V12 engine delivering 571PS and 850nm of torque.
“The first Goodwood Ghost was a response to a whole new generation of clients, both in age and attitude. These men and women asked us for a slightly smaller, less ostentatious means to own a Rolls-Royce. The success of the product we created for them fulfilled our most ambitious expectations. Over its ten-year lifespan, which began in 2009, Ghost has become the most successful model in the marque’s 116-year history.
To create a new product that would resonate with our Ghost clients for the next ten years meant we had to listen carefully to their demands. Today we set new standards in customer centricity by creating a completely new motor car for a unique group of Rolls-Royce’s clients. These business leaders and entrepreneurs demand more of their Ghost than ever. They require a new type of super-luxury saloon that is dynamic, serenely comfortable and perfect in its minimalism. Ghost is this product. The only components that we carried over from the first Goodwood Ghost were the Spirit of Ecstasy and umbrellas. Everything else was designed, crafted and engineered from the ground up. The result is the most technologically advanced Rolls-Royce yet. It distils the pillars of our brand into a beautiful, minimalist, yet highly complex product that is perfectly in harmony with our Ghost clients’ needs and perfectly in tune with the times.”
