Uber-luxury carmaker, Rolls Royce have presented an updated version of its Ghost sedan at the on-going 2014 Geneva Motor Show, called the Rolls Royce Ghost Series II. Originally launched back in 2009, the Ghost has received minor nips and tucks for the 2015 model year. The redesigned Ghost Series II will of course, still coddle its passengers in opulence, while providing sports-car like acceleration from a twin-turbo V12 under the hood.
On the outside, the Ghost Series II has brought to the table a host of new tweaks. There are redesigned LED headlights with daytime running lights along with different hood surface and bumpers to provide a sense of extra width and height. The Ghost Series II’s refreshed grille too, features more chrome than ever before.
On the inside, the changes are limited to updated seats with improved electronic adjustment and more heating options. Also revised is the Ghost’s navigation system with a 10.25-inch display and a touchpad as well as on-board Wi-Fi and satellite-aided transmission (SAT) that was introduced in 2013 in the Wraith. Customers can optionally configure the Ghost Series II with a Bespoke Audio system and two new wood veneers.
The Rolls Royce Ghost Series II will continue using the same set of engines that currently serve the Ghost - a V12 6.6-litre turbocharged engine with 567PS of max power and 780Nm of peak torque. The British marquee also states that they have tweaked the mechanical bits of the sedan to improve it’s rear stability and driver feedback, as well as ride quality and cornering abilities.
Rolls Royce has also confirmed that Ghost Series II will be officially launched in India between October and December 2014. However, the marquee has not yet revealed the pricing for the Indian market.
