When it comes to modifying a Rolls-Royce, few tuners get it right.
In fact, we can’t imagine anyone getting more out of a Wraith, Phantom or Ghost, than Rolls-Royce’s own bespoke program. But a unique customization plan, offered from the factory, isn’t enough to stop tuners and coachbuilders from trying to visually “improve” these British gems.
This Ghost is the latest offering when it comes to modified Rollers and its tuning package is rendered by Onyx Concept.
Called the Rolls Royce Ghost San Mortiz, it features a redesigned custom sports bumper, with a handcrafted satin-carbon spoiler. Of course, the “sports theme” doesn’t end there and the kit also features a pair of sports side skirts, a sports rear spoiler and a rear diffuser with custom quad sports tailpipes. All of these appendages are made from carbon fiber, because weight saving on a two and a half tone car is…um…crucial.
Nothing says “sports-car” more than a Rolls-Royce limousine riding on 22-inch bespoke alloys and a slight suspension tweak to drop the ride height.
The thing is, Onyx tried to transform the Ghost in something more dynamic – similar to the Wraith – but let’s be honest here for a second; even if the Ghost gets an extra 50 BHP from its enormous engine, it still doesn’t qualify as something sporty. But just in case it does, Onyx boosted the 6.6-litre V12 engine up to about 631 BHP – that’s 50 more than the standard model.
Mind you, Onyx does a terrific job when it comes to modifying Range Rovers and I think they should stick to it.
