The Rolls Royce Ghost Series II – a facelift for the entry-level Rolls – has been revealed at the Geneva Motor Show.
When Rolls Royce gives one of their cars a rare facelift it becomes the ‘Series II’, and that’s exactly what we get at Geneva today with the reveal of the facelift for the Ghost – the Rolls Royce Ghost Series II.
Perhaps the most noticeable cosmetic change is the new headlights which make the front look less square and get daytime running lights round the edge,a revised RR grill with slightly more curved uprights, revised bumpers, extra chrome highlights and a new channel running up the bonnet from the Spirit of Ecstacy.
Inside, Rolls Royce has added new electric seats in the back which can be angled towards one another, new voice control, and a new touch-sensitive controller for the 102″ Infotainment screen. Extra choices of veneer are now on offer as is even more extended leather.
Power remains the same from the Ghost’s V12 at 563bhp, but RR has added the satellite guided 8-speed gearbox from the Wraith that reads the road ahead to set the Ghost up for the right gear and owner-drivers can opt for the new Dynamic Driving Package that tweaks the suspension and delivers more feel.
Rolls Royce CEO, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, 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.
It’s not the most comprehensive makeover you’ll ever see in a car, but it’s enough to move the Ghost on without undermining the abilities of the current model.
