Developed especially for the Chinese market, Rolls-Royce presented its Ghost Extended Wheelbase at the 2011 Auto Shanghai. Designed as a car to drive or in which to be chauffeured, Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase will offer more space with the addition of 170mm to the car’s wheelbase, which means more legroom for the passengers.
Under the bonnet we find the acclaimed Rolls-Royce Ghost 6.6 litre twin turbo charged V12 engine producing 563 hp and 780 Nm of torque at just 1,500rpm.
With these numbers, the Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.0 seconds. Still, the car is very comfortable thanks to an intelligent, four corner air suspension.
The first Rolls-Royce models to carry the Ghost name were known to have a refined style while being durable. This gave passengers the chance to experience what it meant to ride in a coach-built luxury. For the newest version of the Rolls-Royce Ghost, the design team made sure to keep everything that made the previous models a success.
Interior Designer Alan Sheppard shared that the objective of the Ghost Extended Wheelbase was to highlight its tone of discretion and confidence. This was done by balancing the different qualities of the Rolls-Royce which are to pamper the passengers while protecting them from the outside environment and to flood the interior with natural light, Sheppard adds.
