Rolls Royce Ghost

The Ghost (Rolls Royce) its 6.6-liter V12 generates a 575 lb-ft of torque at 1,500 rpm, along with 563 horsepower in U.S. trim. The 212.6-inch body stretches over a 129.7 inch long wheelbase, and the whole car weighs in at 5,445 pounds unloaded.

There is no question in the styling, which is unchanged from the 200EX concept. Usually, the Ghost retains the Phantom-style coach doors with built-in umbrellas. Inside, the Ghost carries over additional Phantom quirks, such as the “Power Reserve” gauge the driver gets in lieu of a traditional tachometer.

Aside from that, this is clearly more of a driver’s car than the Phantom, whose opulent backseat accommodations show that it’s more about being driven in. The Ghost’s steering wheel is much smaller in diameter and has a thicker rim than its big brother, and the seats appear to have more contouring for lateral support, as well.

The base price is between €200,000 and €300,000.
