Latest News – 2012 Rolls-Royce Ghost EWB

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars official website: Rolls-RoyceMotorCars.com

Ghost Extended Wheelbase is designed to be as enjoyable to drive as it is to be driven in. Which is hardly surprising, since under its bonnet sits the same twin turbo 6.6-litre V12 engine as Ghost.

Even though it is 17cm (6.7 inches) longer, their engineers have gone to great lengths to ensure it offers the same exceptional driving dynamics. So when you press the accelerator you’ll unleash a seemingly endless reserve of power, which will effortlessly whisk you from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 5.0 seconds. (USA version 5.1 seconds.) At the same time, you’ll also experience the ‘magic carpet ride’ Rolls-Royce is famous for.

Once inside the rear passenger compartment, it is immediately apparent where every centimetre of the additional length has been added. The extra legroom invites you to stretch out, while the abundance of extra space gives you more room to work, entertain or just relax and appreciate the exquisite craftsmanship in every detail. It also allows even more possibilities for personalisation, so you can create a car that is as unique as you are.
