The Rolls Royce Ghost Series II that was officially presented at the recently concluded 2014 Geneva Motor Show is awaiting its commercial debut in the United Kingdom by mid-2014. According to reports, the British marquee is reportedly, planning to launch the Ghost Series II in the Indian market by November 2014.
The new model gets some subtle exterior updates - the most notable change being the new LED headlights, which now feature daytime running lights. The front air intake gets chrome embellishments and the bumper has been slightly reworked. The bonnet gets a wake line which connects the Spirit of Ecstasy to the windscreen giving it a small dynamic touch.
On the inside, you will come face to face with all the opulence one can expect from a Rolls Royce. The seats, dashboard, centre console and door trims are all draped in the finest leather. Glossy wooden panels on the dashboard lend a touch of class and add to the over smooth finish. Like any other Rolls, this one too, has room for extensive levels of customization and you can order bespoke motifs to suit your style.
There have been made no changes under the hood, which means the Rolls Royce Ghost Series II will be powered with the current 6.6-litre twin turbo, V12 producing 571PS and 780Nm of torque mated to an eight-speed ZF auto tranny. The updated transmission now features satellite mapping and is able to read the road ahead and adjust the gears accordingly, thereby giving better fuel efficiency and reducing unnecessary gear changes and consequently, providing a smoother ride. The 0 to 100 kmph mark is achieved in 4.8 seconds.
Rolls-Royce has not yet mentioned any pricing details for the Ghost Series II for the Indian market, but we reckon it could start at around Rs 4.70 crore.
