Rolls-Royce Motor has unveiled today its new Ghost Extended Wheelbase model 2011 Shanghai Motor Show. The ultra-luxury Ghost is the sixth new model from Rolls-Royce Motor and gives customers increased space and comfort.
The Extended Wheelbase variant has an additional 170mm to the car’s wheelbase. The legroom is enhanced with knee-room which more than doubled compared to the standard Ghost. The increased cabin space in the rear passenger compartment and a panoramic sunroof are the highlights of the new setup.
Powered by the 6.6 liter twin-turbo charged V12 engine which produces 563hp and 780Nm of torque at just 1,500rpm, the Ghost Extended Wheelbase accelerates from 0-100km/h in just five seconds.
The Ghost Extended Wheelbase will be built to order and is available in only limited numbers for 2011 until full production begins in 2012.
On the unveiling of the new car, CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös said, “This latest Rolls-Royce is a model of outstanding design and unrivalled luxury. Ghost Extended Wheelbase delivers all the poise and dynamism enjoyed by discerning Ghost owners, with the indulgent experience of an extended wheelbase car. It is the very best of both worlds.
“This is the first time we have undertaken a world launch of a Rolls-Royce car in China, underscoring the strategic significance of this market and the Asia Pacific region. We expect to build on last year’s record growth, with further strong demand for Rolls-Royce models and a positive economic forecast throughout the region,” he added.
