British luxury automaker Rolls-Royce has just unveiled what it calls its “Post Opulence” design, coming in the form of a next-generation Ghost that perfectly blends minimalism with the brand’s Spirit of Ecstasy.
Both wider and longer than its predecessor, the new model is powered by a massive 6.75-liter V12 engine that can push out 563 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque as an all-wheel drive, giving it a 0-60 mph time of just 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. Of course, it comes with the automaker’s signature Magic Carpet Ride experience coupled with the world’s first Planar Suspension System by using an Upper Wishbone Damper, a result of five years of development. The doors have been upgraded to be fully automatic, with a series of sensors in each door to provide greater convenience, while its interior is complemented by a range of premium amenities including a star-lit roof, a Micro-Environment Purification System that cleans the air, and a 1,300W, 18-channel Bespoke Audio system.
“The only components that we carried over from the first Goodwood Ghost were the Spirit of Ecstasy and umbrellas,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce. “Everything else was designed, crafted and engineered from the ground up. The result is the most technologically advanced Rolls-Royce yet. It distills the pillars of our brand into a beautiful, minimalist, yet highly complex product that is perfectly in harmony with our Ghost clients’ needs and perfectly in tune with the times.”
Rolls-Royce has yet to announce when the new Ghost will go on sale or how much it’ll cost, so those interested should definitely be on the lookout for more information to come.
