    Official: Rolls-Royce Ghost pressrelease and pics

    This is just about the coolest car out there, ordered one yet MikeSmileySmiley

     

    "Rolls-Royce Ghost is powered by a brand new, 6.6 litre twin-turbo V12 engine, unique to the model. Featuring direct injection, it produces 563bhp - enough to propel Rolls-Royce Ghost from 0-60 mph in just 4.7 seconds and on to an electronically governed top speed of 155mph. With 780 Nm of torque available at just 1,500rpm, delivery of power is immediate and extremely smooth.

    Power is transmitted through an eight-speed, shift-by-wire, automatic ZF gearbox. What this achieves is a feeling of endless, surging power, which is illustrated by the power reserve gauge on the fascia, replacing the more common rev counter. The new powertrain delivers this performance while emitting just 317g/km of CO2.Fuel consumption is 20.8 mpg / 13.6 l/100km."

    Looks very good for that type of car

    Re: Official: Rolls-Royce Ghost pressrelease and pics

     wow~~~

     

    makes the Phantom looks a bit dated now...

    love it!

    hope its more driver focused than the Phantom


    Re: Official: Rolls-Royce Ghost pressrelease and pics

    Very nice! Only problem is that at 5.50meters I will need a new garage

    Great car. My new favourite (very) big saloon.

    Re: Official: Rolls-Royce Ghost pressrelease and pics

    Wow!

    Truly great!

    Will it co-exist with the Phantom, or will it replace it? (being 5.5m it hardly is a baby)

    Co-exist, I'd say. Should be a substantially cheaper as well (if you can speak of "cheap" in this case Smiley ).

    This is the "Gallardo" to Rolls-Royce as to the Phantom is the Murcielago to Lamborghini. It will be very much more driver orientated.

    No orders from me SmileyI would much rather have a S65 for a a "sporty" saloon and pay half the price - that is if I needed another saloon. The Phantom is there to fill the Roll-Royce section of the garage already Smiley The Ghost does look magnificent though!


    Re: Official: Rolls-Royce Ghost pressrelease and pics

    God, I love the details though... and the wood finish.

    The center console lower part sure does look plasticy in the pics. I'm sure its the beige leather in the pics...

    Very nice look to it. I would order one but my garage isn't long enough either.


    Re: Official: Rolls-Royce Ghost pressrelease and pics

    they've really nailed their designs.....upon first look the door handles look bad....focus them for 10 seconds and you start thinking it looks great.

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: Official: Rolls-Royce Ghost pressrelease and pics

    5.5m?  Damn, my new house that we will be moving to in a year may not be able to fit it!


    Re: Official: Rolls-Royce Ghost pressrelease and pics

     actually it's 5.399


    Re: Official: Rolls-Royce Ghost pressrelease and pics

    Oh yes it is stunning indeed. Very well done. The interior shows a little weird chrome center bits that i find too in the face but other than that it is really nice. That engine sounds amazing, and 4.7 to 100 is impressive to say the least.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    Fantastic engine for sure and really great acceleration numbers for such a heavy car, it weighs something like 2.300 kg. Smiley

    X6 Hybrid still got it beat in the weight department. RR needs to fatten up a bit. FAT=rich

     This will be very successful for Rolls. I'll be seeing Ghosts all over Palm Beach next season!

    Re: Official: Rolls-Royce Ghost pressrelease and pics

    I liked the prototype.

    I liked the display model.

    I like the production model.

    I expect this car to be a good seller for Rolls. And for the price, it may even give it's sister the 7-Series some trouble. 

    Well done guys.
