6th May, 2012

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has released the Ghost Extended Wheelbase in Australia, following its introduction overseas last year. It is the sixth model in the current Ghost and Phantom ranges.

Building on the success of Ghost, the car combines segment leading cabin space with hallmark Rolls-Royce effortless power delivery and driver dynamic. Rear-cabin passengers will have 170mm more room than the already ample space in Ghost.

A panoramic sunroof as standard bathes the cabin in natural light contributing to an ambience that exudes lavish comfort and serenity. Sumptuous lambs-wool carpets and multimedia theatre-configuration, both as standard enhance the super-luxurious feel of the car.

Powered by the Rolls-Royce 6.6 litre twin turbo charged V12 engine which produces 420 kW of power and 780 Nm of torque at only 1,500 rpm, Ghost Extended Wheelbase accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just five seconds. An intelligent, four-corner air suspension maintains a perfect balance of legendary 'magic carpet' ride comfort combined with effortless handling.

Cutting edge technology is combined with Rolls-Royce craftsmanship to provide an uncompromised driving experience. A complex computer system reads multiple inputs from sensors around the car whilst the dampers alone make individual load calculations every 2.5 milliseconds ensuring effective poise, balance and handling.

Electronic aids mean Ghost Extended Wheelbase is not fazed by an uneven surface. Anti-roll stabilisation, dynamic brake control, and dynamic traction and cornering brake control work together under dual Integrated Chassis Management.

Paul Harris, Regional Director Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Asia-Pacific said: "Ghost Extended Wheelbase is a car for all occasions. Owners who enjoy Ghost for its effortless power-delivery and driver dynamic will be delighted with the enhanced rear-cabin space in Ghost Extended Wheelbase. This truly is the perfect no compromise motor car".

The Rolls-Royce Ghost has seen impressive demand since its 2009 launch in Australia. Designed as a less formal Rolls-Royce, it has introduced a new generation of customers to the marque, wowed by its combination of drivability and hallmark Rolls-Royce exuberant luxury.

The Ghost Extended Wheelbase simply takes the principle even further. Customers who require slightly more rear-cabin space to transport families or business associates in uncompromising comfort are able to do so whilst still enjoying the peerless Ghost driving experience. (copyright image)

Jolyon Nash, Director, Sales & Marketing, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars added: "The success of Ghost and the pinnacle Phantom family has led us to significantly expand the manufacturing plant and headcount at the home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England to meet demand. More and more customers are commissioning the Bespoke department to create truly unique motor cars, I am certain Ghost Extended Wheelbase will make an important contribution to the continuation of this great British success story."
