Rolls-Royce Ghost EWB ‘Inspired by Private Jet’ Is, Well, Self-Explanatory

Some of the people who can afford to buy a Rolls-Royce can also afford even more expensive toys, like a private jet.

Those can be had for anywhere between $1 million (really old models) or even $100+ million if you want to custom fit an Airbus or Boeing. Now, Rolls-Royce wants to bring those two worlds closer and provide a similar experience on the road as when you’re flying through the clouds.

The Rolls-Royce Ghost is already exceptional at making you feel as if the car is floating around thanks to its air suspension setup. So if you’ve got that covered, the only thing left to do is work on the car’s aesthetics.

With that in mind, meet the extended wheelbase Rolls-Royce Ghost Inspired by Private Jet, which is on display at the automaker’s Abu Dhabi dealership. It wears a two-tone Arctic White and Midnight Sapphire upper, with a Private Jet Motif coachline and a mainly Arctic White and Fleet Blue cabin. Completing the look are the two-tone 21-inch 10-spoke part polished forged alloys.

The Rolls-Royce Ghost is powered by a 6.6-liter twin turbo V12 producing 571 PS and 780 Nm (575 lb-ft) of torque. Since this is an extended wheelbase (EWB) model, it needs 5.1 seconds to get from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph), while the regular Ghost which can complete the sprint in 4.9 seconds. But we guess a couple of tenths of a second are insignificant in the rarefied air occupied by the likes of this Rolls special edition.

    Meh. I mean, it’s pretty but if I’ve seen many RRs in various configurations over the past year or two. Also, this reminds me of a bunch of different “one offs” that were inspired by stuff like Falconry, sailing and other things like that. It was pretty funny because I, and others, were very annoyed with all the articles back when I was on a different website. Unsurprisingly, they were all found in Abu Dhabi and now that I think about it, I’m reasonably certain they came from this particular dealership.

    Edit: Ok, I just went checking their Facebook page, I’m absolutely certain of it. I also found this particular model there too, as well as others from previous articles. Sorry to get off topic there, I was just having a quick trip down memory lane.

    i prefer these than standard one, because this is quite “different” than flagship lwb 7 series

    That interior colour combination is perfection in my opinion. The best bit is the white steering wheel (as impractical as it is).

    I don’t get the ‘self explanatory’ bit? Anyway, I’ve seen far far worse, and really, for the most part it looks quite cohesive in it’s execution. I do like the matt wood panelling. Actually apart form the contrast between the blue and white exterior colours being a bit too much for me, I’d happily take it.
