Rolls-Royce reveals Ghost Series II in China

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has revealed the Ghost Series II at the 2014 Chengdu Motor Show in China. The car is a refresh of the original Ghost sedan.

The car gets re-designed LED headlamps encircled with DRLs, a tapered ‘wake channel’ on the bonnet, re-profiled bumpers and addition of chrome inserts to the front air intakes. The waft line has also been re-designed and it now leans further forward. The Ghost Series II gets on-board Wi-Fi, satellite aided transmission (SAT), updated infotainment user interface and navigation system and optional Bespoke Audio.

The car is powered by a 6.6-litre turbocharged V12 engine producing 592bhp and 780Nm of torque. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox.

On unveiling Ghost Series II to a packed hall at Century City New International Convention & Exhibition Center (CCNICEC), Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ Regional Director for Mainland China Henrik Wilhemsmeyer said, “The Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II is the ultimate entrepreneur’s business tool. Following the worldwide success of its predecessor, I am confident that this re-designed and updated Rolls-Royce will continue to attract increasing numbers of new customers to the marque, in particular business entrepreneurs seeking an oasis of calm in a frenetic business world.”

“As a design statement, Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II continues to transcend time,” comments Giles Taylor, Director of Design for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.  “This is ensured by the deft treatment of features such as the new headlights, the new wake channel on the bonnet and surfacing that lend the car a more dynamic, purposeful stance and hint at the cutting edge technology inside. I am very pleased with the overall sense of design harmony.”
