Resculpted and tapered, the brand new Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II represents a refinement of its beloved predecessor – itself a smaller, more measured take on the luxurious Phantom. Arguably the most obvious new design feature on the exterior is a “wake channel” that appears just behind the Spirit of Ecstacy’s wings and stretches the length of the hood, thus evoking “the sight of a jet’s vapor trail,” giving the saloon-style sedan a slightly more aggressive aesthetic. However, the majority of the Ghost’s contemporary updates appear on the interior. The dashboard is now home to a 10.25” HD display and a Spirit of Ecstacy Rotary Controller while a bevy of ultra-luxurious customization options – including Paldao and Walnut Burr Crossband wood veneers – are available for cabin. The Ghost Series II also offers Rolls-Royce’s GPS-powered Satellite Aided Transmission – the first time the feature has come standard outside of the Wraith – in order to anticipate a driver’s necessary gear and speed for a particular location/environment. Under the new Ghost’s hood sits a 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine that likely offers roughly the same amount of power – 563 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque – as its previous incarnation. Aimed at the “Captains of Industry, entrepreneurs and successful business men and women who are the wealth and job creators in our economies,” Rolls-Royce’s Ghost Series II will be available soon.
