The engine continues unchanged.
Rolls Royce will launch the refreshed Rolls Royce Ghost Series II in India on November 7 in Mumbai. The Indian launch follows the worldwide showcase of the Ghost Series II at the Geneva Motor Show in March this year, and the spotting of a demo car in Mumbai in September.
The Ghost Series II comes with subtle design changes. The LED headlights have been re-sculpted for a sharper look, and the bonnet gets a new ‘wake channel’ which resembles ‘vapor coming from a jet’, says the company.
The Ghost also gets tweaked bumpers, chrome inserts in its front air intakes (which feed more air to cool the front brakes) and a new ‘waft-line’. Inside, the luxury sedan sees slight changes to the user interface and navigation system, and an optional Bespoke audio unit can now be ordered.
There are no mechanical upgrades to the Ghost’s 6.6-liter V12 engine, which produces 563 bhp and 780 Nm of torque. The car achieves 0-100 km/h acceleration in 4.7 seconds and attains a top-speed limited to 250 km/h.
Like the Wraith, the Ghost too gets satellite aided transmission, which pre-selects the gear based on the type of terrain ahead.
