Over the past ten years, the Rolls-Royce Ghost has managed to attract more and more buyers to the luxury automaker with the intent of driving themselves, rather than driven in. Sure, plenty of units have a hired driver or serve as upmarket hotel shuttles, but Ghost provides a more dynamic driving experience while retaining the refinements of a bespoke automobile. Today brings a new era of the Rolls-Royce Ghost, one of the marque’s oldest nameplates.
Ghost is the third model to join Rolls-Royce Motor Car’s “Architecture of Luxury” modular Aluminum spaceframe. We’ve seen this structure on the latest flagship Phantom and ultra-posh Cullinan SUV. A 6.75L V12 continues to waft the Rolls-Royce Ghost to its destination but now applies power to all four wheels. In addition to all-wheel drive for the 2021 model year is also all-wheel steering, a feature we’ve also seen on Cullinan and Phantom creating the ability to reduce the impact of its sheer size.
Potential buyers can certainly expect the finest materials and technologies in a luxury sedan with a base price north of $300,000. We’re anxious to get our hands on one for a proper “first look” later this year!
