Rolls-Royce brings in the
latest version of their Ghost, the Series II to Delhi soon after its launch and
success since November 2014 in Mumbai. The car will cost approximately Rs 4.5 crore.
Sven Ritter, General Manager
for Rolls Royce Motor Cars Asia Pacific said that the Ghost has always been a
leading choice for Indian buyers. The Ghost Series II will be an even more
rewarding experience. India is key market for Rolls-Royce, and Ritter feels
that the company is in a strong position for the long term.
Ghost Series II is available
with a standard and extended wheelbase, both fitted with a 563bhp, V12 engine
from BMW producing 780Nm of torque at only 1500rpm. The standard version has a
wheelbase of 3296mm as the extended has a wheelbase of 3465mm. Performance-wise both cars are limited to a
top speed of 250kmph and do 0-100kmph in 4.9 and 5 seconds respectively, which
is astonishing for something that weights the equivalent of a house. Fuel consumption,
as you would expect, won’t give any bragging rights of 4.7kmpl.
Design changes on the outside
of the Ghost Series II are a re-engineered and re-designed LED headlights are
framed by day-time running lights, revised surface treatments including re-sculptured
bumpers, a new bonnet design featuring tapered ‘wake channel’ emanating from
the Spirit of Ecstasy, the waft line leans further forwards, with new paint and
wheel options giving customers greater scope for bespoke personalization.
The interior of the Series II
has re-designed front seats include electronically adjustable thigh supports
and depth adjustment. The rear seats have been subtly re-angled to augment
effortless communication with fellow passengers. The signature analogue clock
fascia and instrument dials are enhanced with the addition of polished metal
chaplets Option of extending natural grain leather to the A and C pillars. The
scope for bespoke customisation is extended with the introduction of two new,
exquisitely crafted veneers: Paldao and Walnut Burr Cross band.
A whiter, brighter light
augments driver safety whilst electronic reflectors move in the direction of
travel in response to steering-wheel turns. New anti-glare technology deflects
light when a car approaches in the other direction, giving Ghost Series II
drivers the benefit of full-beam headlights at all times.
The suspension has been
re-engineered with front and rear struts, new steering gear and adjusted
dampers that increase the car’s cornering ability when the Dynamic Driving
Package is specified.
New hydraulic rear axle
bearings enhance ride quality and rear stability whilst reducing vibrations and
