Brabus' Rolls-Royce Ghost Is the Perfect Combination of Luxury Refinement and Sportiness

Brabus is on a roll, as it has just followed up on its Porsche Taycan Turbo S tune with its take on the opulent Rolls-Royce Ghost.

Naturally, nothing about Brabus’ Ghost is standard. The twin-turbo V12 engine sees power increase from 563 HP to 700 HP, with torque now sitting at 701 lb-ft at just 2,000 RPM. As a result, the Ghost can hit 62 MPH in a respectable 4.6 seconds before going onto its limited top speed of 155 MPH — because in a Rolls-Royce, speed is not really of the essence.

Instead, the Ghost is all about refinement. Despite numerous visual upgrades inside and out, the Rolls-Royce remains a classy beast. Brabus adds exposed-carbon fiber aerodynamic enhancement components that give the car a newfound sportiness, notably defining the front with a new lip spoiler and air intake surrounds, and elevating the rear with a carbon diffuser, which houses four carbon-titanium exhaust pipes.

The new system allows the V12 engine to breathe, adding a sporty acoustic element to the otherwise understated saloon. Elsewhere, we find tailor-made 21” and 22-inch wheels in four different designs, suspension lowering of 30mm, and a completely refinished interior.

Here, Brabus applies its exclusive “MASTERPIECE” approach, which means customers can tap Brabus’ tailors to create an interior of their wildest dreams — simply, nothing is off the cards. For the example you see above, Brabus fitted porcelain-colored leather with black piping, accentuating this with square quilting on select sections of seats, door panels and armrests that was meticulously finished. That same leather covers the floor, while the headliner is made from black Alcantara.

Polished stainless pedals, exposed-carbon scuff plates with Brabus’ logo with red and white backlighting, and the carbon elements for the instrument panel and center console add a dynamic touch, while the signature Rolls-Royce star headliner can also be left untouched for that quintessential look and feel.

Brabus’ Rolls-Royce Ghost 700 can be seen in the gallery above, while more information can be found on Brabus’ website.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Coupé has sold for $142M USD, making it the world’s most expensive car.
