Rolls Royce is world’s most renowned luxury cars manufacturer and their latest Ghost is the best car ever made, or so we’re told. The thing about the 2021 Rolls Royce Ghost is that it makes for a powerful V12 beast that’s aimed to spoil you with luxury, as usual we might add.
To give you a teaser, the new Ghost in the machine features power doors, shooting stars, unstoppable power and, as expected, a smooth as silk ride. Because after all’s said and done, that’s Rolls Royce in a nutshell: a machine that looks and drives like it was sent from the gods.
Post opulence is the best term to describe the new Rolls Royce Ghost. The new model made its debut today, on Tuesday respectively, and is one of the best luxury cars money can buy. The exterior design is simple, boasting hand-welded aluminum body panels and an obsessive attention to details. Everything is clean and handsome, but there’s nothing simple on the inside: the powerhouse running the show is Rolls Royce’s signature 6.75-liter, twin-turbocharged V12 engine.
This beast delivers 563 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque, while the car rides on the company’s proprietary and modular Architecture of Luxury platform. 0 to 60 takes 4.6 seconds, due to the Ghost’s all wheel drive system. Moreover, you’ll get rear-axle steering, a clever technology that makes this car more “corner-friendly” so to speak, i.e. more agile while cornering enthusiastically, and also more manageable at slow speeds.
The new Rolls Royce Ghost also boasts what the company calls the Planar Suspension System, that’s advertised to create a sense of flight on land never experienced before by a mortal due to a proprietary upper-wishbone damper unit above the front suspension assembly.
Everything is smart inside, including the eight-speed automatic transmission with GPS link which allows it to upshift/downshift in advance of an approaching turn/hill/what have you, not to mention a hidden stereo camera located in the windshield that scans the road and alters the dampers automatically for road surface changes.
Finally we must mention the Microenvironment Purification System which is basically a state of the art air filtration system, and the fully electronic doors. If you’re already sold on the concept, the new Rolls Royce Ghost will be available early next year, and yes, the sky is the limit when it comes to customization. Base price? We already told you: $332,000 and above.
