Fast-forward a few years and despite being called the Ghost Series II, the 2014 updated model was more of a thorough facelift, as opposed to a brand new car, which means that the Ghost, as we know it, has been in production for a decade now.
Meet the new Baby Rolls
This well-camouflaged all-new Ghost prototype was spotted recently on a BMW Group transport truck and as you can see, its does feature quite a few differences when compared to the current model.
So while the overall form factor is similar, the hood, for example, is completely different, the front wings don’t bulge upwards as much, the front fascia appears to have a cleaner design, like the latest Phantom, while the rear end is a tiny bit more arched – which should give it a sleeker profile.
We are curious whether or not this second-generation Ghost is larger than the current model, but we’ll just have to wait for an official word on that one.
People lucky enough to own this car once it comes out, should get to enjoy all the safety and convenience technologies currently present in the automaker’s other two models, the Phantom and the Cullinan. So expect features such as those large TFT displays, but also a similar bundle of safety systems like the alertness assistant, active cruise control, cross-traffic warning, collision warning and lane change warning.
As for its driving characteristics, the all-new Ghost should be lighter and quieter than its predecessor. It will also probably be powered by Rolls-Royce’s new 6.75-liter twin turbo V12 engine (from the Phantom), but we can’t say for certain at this time.
The second-generation Rolls-Royce Ghost should make its debut on the motor show catwalk within the next year or so.
