Official: Rolls-Royce Ghost will carry a 570 hp V12 engine

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars revealed today the official numbers of the upcoming Ghost! According to the manufacturer, the new sedan will be powered by a 6.6 litre turbo charged V12 engine, connected to an 8-speed automatic ZF gearbox, capable to deliver an impressive 570 hp and to push the car to 60 mph time in just 4.7 seconds while the top speed is limited to 155 mph.

Rolls-Royce Director of Engineering, Helmut Riedl said, "First and foremost Ghost is a Rolls-Royce. This means that despite its extraordinary performance figures it has been engineered for effortless composure and refined power delivery."

This is illustrated by the significant levels of low down torque available which makes pulling away very smooth and for an exceptionally relaxed driving experience.

Rolls-Royce has already confirmed that the Ghost will ride on an intelligent four corner air suspension system using multi link aluminium front and rear axles.

The fully integrated system allows each of the Ghost's dynamic handling systems to work together in harmony, providing the optimum levels of refinement and comfort at all times.

The new vehicle will make its official debut this year at the Frankfurt Motor Show while deliveries are set to begin late in 2009 with pricing from £165,000 excluding taxes and delivery charges. USA and Asia Pacific region will receive the car from the second quarter 2010.
