2011 Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase (EWB) in the works

Article by Christian A., on November 13, 2010

Details about the 2011 Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase (EWB) are few but recently, spy shots have been taken in Germany of this remarkable vehicle. What is known so far is that the EWB features modified B-pillars and longer rear doors.

If the Ghost EWB is similar to the Phantom EWB, it will have a 250mm (9.8") stretch that means the car will be 5649mm (222.4") long with a 3545mm (139.6") wheelbase.

If this information is accurate, this means that the Ghost EWB will be slightly shorter than the standard Phantom that measures 5840mm (229.9") long and rides on a 3570mm (140.6") wheelbase.

What this also indicates is that the Ghost EWB is slotted between the Bentley Mulsanne and the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

The vehicle will be powered by a turbocharged 6.6-liter V12 engine with 563 bhp (420 kW / 570 PS) and 780 Nm (575 lb-ft) of torque.

It will be equipped with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, which will enable the Ghost to do a 0-60 mph sprint in about five seconds before reaching a limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). [via WorldCarFans]
