Looking at these new photos of the upcoming Rolls Royce Ghost, we can’t decide if we like this white color better than the darker shades we have seen so far. While the black exterior paints seems to give the car a sleeker, less massive look, this white color gives the impression of a longer and larger Rolls.
Sure, it’s all about visuals, but in the end, the truth is that a color can make or break a vehicle. Now, let’s look at the “real” dimensions: Rolls Royce Ghost measures 5399mm (212.6 inches) in length, 3295mm (129.7 inches) in wheelbase, 1948mm (76.7 inches) in width, and 1550mm (61 inches) in height and shares the same platform as the new 7 Series.
Not very small when compared to the 7, right? Despite the technical numbers showing the Ghost as being a massive car, the truth is that the design lines are executed far better than the previous RR model, a very modern, round design and surprising, a sportier look.
It is worth mentioning that the Rolls Royce Ghost is not a replacement for the Phantom model, but rather a competitor for the Bentley Continental Flying Spur. Ghost is equipped with a 6.6-liter turbocharged V12 engine with more than 500 horsepower, a powerplant not seen before on any BMW Group product and up to 80% of its components will be unique.
To improve the handling, Rolls Royce announced that the new Ghost will feature an advanced air suspension system which will increase the ride comfort. The state-of-the-art chassis uses an intelligent four corner air suspension system and multi link aluminum front and rear axles.
The Rolls Royce Ghost production model will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September and will be manufactured at the Goodwood plant in the UK.
