Introduction

The Rolls Royce Ghost can be described as radiating practicality, affordability (somewhat) and old age charm. Compared to some of the other vehicles by this manufacturer, it is considered small. However, anyone who can rank automobiles according to size knows that it is only small when compared to other Rolls Royce models. With this model, the manufacturer has managed to maintain its old-school sophistication and adapt gadgets similar to those seen in the BMW 7 series.

With blunter edges and a less imposing front grille the 2015 series II guise, has started to look a little more like the phantom.  This model appears different from its predecessors in that the front door panels have been changed. It has new LED lights, new tech and gadgets and an aided gearbox.

 

Engine and 0-60 times

The Rolls Royce Ghost is not a small car to drive, but its manageable and will offer you quite an exciting ride. This car has considerably thin rimmed wheels, and compared to the phantom the drive will feel different but also unique. It boasts a V12 6.5, liter twin turbo engine with 563hsp combined with 575 pounds per foot of torque. This allows the ghost to go from 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds not forgetting its eight-speed automatic transmission. All in all, the Ghost cannot be described as slow.

According to the taglines, this car comes fitted with trick air springs. These are supposed to ‘feel' which side the passenger is seated and adjust the vehicle to balance the weight. Sadly, when we took the Ghost on a test run on not so good roads, it seemed to be struggling a bit to stay balanced.

 

The Exterior and Interior Features

By looking at the new model Rolls Royce Ghost, you can easily see the merging of different time periods and styles. This being mainly because while Rolls Royce is typically a British firm, it is currently being owned and run by BMW which is German. This is why from observations it is easy to see that quite a number of the features in this model are reminiscent of the BMW 7series. This fact notwithstanding, the new model gives you the leisure of personalizing the fitted umbrella with up to two colors, and you can also go for a beaded finish.

The new Rolls Royce Ghost is quite blocky with its higher front grille and emphasized character lines on the hood. The combination of these features makes the front of the vehicles look more substantial. A front view of the car will show you the adaptive LED lights which widen the front and also put the manufacturer back on the map when it comes to lighting technology. The interior gadgets in the Ghost series II are also a notch higher than those in its predecessors. This allows you to use the current variation of BMW's iDrive and enjoy the Spirit of Ecstasy touch sensitive controller.

 

The Takeaway

The new model Rolls Royce Ghost borrows heavily from Mercedes, and while this makes it more similar to the Phantom, it is still a dangerous thing. This is primarily because the manufacturer will have a hard time convincing buyers to spend more than what BMW is asking for the 7 series with which the ghost shares features like the Twin turbo V12 engine. Especially, considering that the Ghost's target market, already have large BMW's.
