The second generation of the Rolls-Royce Ghost limousine has seen a longer variant, which is even more focused on the comfort of the rear passengers. He expects success especially in China.
Not so long ago, we got a second generation model Rolls-Royce Ghost officially introduced, and we already have a brand new version. As the carmaker states, this is a variant oriented to owners who have a personal driver and want to indulge in some luxury in the rear seats. Not surprisingly, the greatest interest is expected from Chinese buyers who suffer from extended cars.
Rolls-Royce boss Torsten Müller-Ötvös is very pleased with the new addition to Ghost Extended. He says that the carmaker needed such a car, because customers want a car that provides generous space in the rear and at the same time no compromises in driving dynamics.
Ghost Extended is mounted on an elongated version of the standard Ghost aluminum platform. Yes, it’s the architecture Rolls-Royce is so proud of that serves as the basis for the Phantom and Cullinan SUVs. The length of the car stretched by 170 millimeters to 5549 mm and the wheelbase has improved by the same amount, so it now has 3465 millimeters.
There were no major visual changes. The creators allegedly tried to keep the minimalist design, so the designers only widened the back door so that they could successfully disguise the extension of the limousine.
At the back we will find a number of new functions. There are also optional folding rear seats with a “rest” position, in which successful managers can rest on long journeys. Among the rear seats we also find a refrigerator for cooling drinks, which offers two special modes; for vintage champagne or for non-vintage champagne. Other comfortable features include built-in Wi-Fi and a new air purification system.
The technique in the bowels remains unchanged. Under the hood of the limousine, a twelve-cylinder with a volume of 6.75 liters, doped with two turbochargers, continues to work. The maximum power is 420 kW, the torque is 850 newton meters. In the standard Ghost alone, we find 100 kilograms of anti-noise materials that are placed in doors, roofs, windows or tires. The extended version also received the same portion for maximum driving comfort.
