Rolls Royce tests upgraded Ghost

Rolls Royce tests upgraded Ghost

October 31, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

The new generation of Rolls-Royce Ghost was spotted during high-speed testing on the Nurburgring track in Germany.

The Ghost, which appeared this time, is a second-generation model, and this is a new car that appeared 11 years later, like the Rolls-Royce with a rather late complete replacement cycle. First released in 2009, the luxury sedan was smaller than the Phantom, but larger than the German flagship sedans. In addition, the sedan also received various derivatives, such as a coupe and convertible.

Most test cars are hidden under camouflage film, but the huge Parthenon grille allows you to recognize the Rolls-Royce at a glance. The new G80 Genesis, which was tested the same day, was captured by chance, and the presence of the Ghost was so great that the G80 looked small.

The appearance of the Rolls-Royce Ghost is impressive compared to the current model, which looks pretty boring. Previously, the model shared the platform with the BMW 7 Series, but the next generation is based on the Luxury architecture, a platform exclusive to Rolls-Royce. As a result, second-generation Ghost will have options that are comparable to the Phantom levels.

The new car is expected to have a 6.75-liter twin-turbine V12 engine with a maximum power of 563 hp. and a maximum torque of 800 Nm. The motor is coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission, 48V moderate hybrid and all-wheel drive system. The second-generation Rolls-Royce Ghost is due to hit the global market in 2021.
