2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost Shows The Interior And It’s About Contemporary Luxury

We first saw a prototype of the second-generation Rolls-Royce Ghost in January this year and now it’s time for a clearer look at the luxury saloon.

This latest set of photos reveals the dashboard of the new Ghost for the first time — or at least a part of it given that it’s still covered. While it obviously draws inspiration from the Phantom limousine and Cullinan SUV, the interior of the 2021 Ghost has its own style. The lower part of the dashboard, including the center console, looks very similar to the aforementioned models.

However, the upper part looks more modern and high-tech, with the layout of the center screen and the instrument panel reminding of the widescreen cockpit seen in some Mercedes-Benz models. We’re not 100 percent sure whether the instrument panel is digital but it certainly looks like it. Normally, the round dial edges would suggest otherwise, but that’s an arrangement seen in many BMW vehicles. The clock mounted near the central screen is clearly analog, though.

On the outside, the 2021 Ghost continues to carry plenty of camouflage as Rolls-Royce is not yet ready to give too much away design-wise. Nevertheless, it’s pretty obvious we’re dealing with an evolution of the current Ghost. Though it appears to have a sportier stance, the silhouette remains largely the same, as does the layout of the doors which continue to open in opposite directions.

The next-generation Ghost will adopt the common Rolls-Royce platform inaugurated by the latest Phantom. Unlike the flagship model, the Ghost is likely to feature all-wheel drive as well, at least as an option. Given the new architecture, power is expected to come from the 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 power plant that equips the Phantom and Cullinan. There are also rumors of an all-electric version coming later on but they have not been confirmed.

The adoption of the new architecture also means the Ghost will benefit from all the safety and convenience features of its more expensive siblings. Expect the second-generation Rolls-Royce Ghost to debut sometime next year at a major auto show as a 2021 model.

    Looks like a page out of the Mercedes longitudnal screen design book, only with a bit of leather covering to help with sun glare. I guess that’s better than a “tacked” on info screen. Rolls Royce would never take that route…I hope.

      you’re right. rr is using mercedes benz’s interior design methods. what a shame.

      • Zcat

        I’m not sure if it’s a bad thing?
        At least it looks better than the Mercedes, (screen only) display without a cowl, or hood to give it ergonomic efficiently.

        • PK

          nah. the mercedes benz screen is 100x better than rr!

          • Zcat

            Iv’e never set in a current Mercedes, so I’m only comparing design aesthetics between the two from pics.

            Neither of us has been inside the upcoming RR, so claiming the Mercedes info screen to be 100x’s better is quite a stretch without any real facts to support that over-exaggerated claim.
            Don’t you think?

          • PK

            not really.

            Are we really at the point where we’re debating whose screen is better? They’re are cheap units made in China, and are probably from the same factory.
