For those who thought that BMW would spoil the Rolls Royce brand and not offer great future models, the small, yet sporty Rolls Royce Ghost proves them all wrong. This is now the second Ghost model from the German automaker, and shows that they are moving with the times with this new model, producing more power while offering increased fuel consumption.
The Ghost comes with a 6.6-litre V12 engine, which produces 563bhp – that’s enough to propel the luxury car from 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds. To give you a comparison, that is the same kind of time as a Porsche 911. The Ghost differs from the Porsche, as its acceleration is smooth but fast, despite its two-and-a-half-ton weight.
RoadTestReports notes that from the moment you get behind the wheel of the Rolls Royce Ghost you will notice how well engineered it all is, you would not know you are driving a vehicle that weighs as much as it does considering how agile it is. BMW have achieved this thanks to an air suspension system, which offers variable damping for greater stability on a range of road surfaces.
The price for the Rolls-Royce Ghost is £195,840, so not for everyone. As with most cars on the road, there are a number of optional extras available to you – taking the overall price to over £200,000.
