Used Rolls-Royce Ghost For Sale
If you have seen one of these around, you may have been wondering if a car as big and imposing as the Rolls-Royce Ghost for sale is for more than just show. It is. They have such road-presence that it is definitely on my If I win the lottery list. The engine is magnificent, with a 6.6-liter 12-cylinder twin-turbo powerplant generating 593 horsepower and 575 foot-pounds of torque. The transmission is a ZF-sourced 8-speed automatic that uses satellite aided GPS to analyze the road ahead and select gears based on that information. The suspension has been revised and updated with redesigned struts, new steering gear and a Dynamic Driving Package that tops off the improved handling with adjusted dampers. Don’t be surprised when a Series II looks agile on the road than its size would indicate. Exterior details are subtle, yet important, with larger front air intakes and contemporary LED daytime running lights. Technology and luxury intertwine in the interior, and the latest of both can be yours without any loss of the traditional Rolls-Royce character and style.
You know when Rolls-Royce adds a letter after the name it represents something special. To celebrate the fifth birthday we get the V-Specification, limited in production as it should be, and as bespoke in detail as one would expect. Being a Rolls Royce, buyers are seeking something to reflect their personality and individual style. Choosing the paint could take some time, as there are 44,000 options, as well as five V-specific hues to jazz it up with. Doorsills feature bespoke engraving, the armrests are embroidered and a special steel inlay was used for the front multimedia screen lid. Deluxe glamor is not the only thing the V-Specification will make you feel. Rolls-Royce engineers have refined the 6.6-liter V-12 to produce 593 horsepower with 80 percent of its torque available from idle. I know in the world of sub-4 second 0-60 mph times, the V achieving 4.8 seconds doesn’t sound too impressive. But, bear in mind, it weighs almost 6,000 pounds. So in reality, getting off the line looking like royalty on a rampage is indeed quite magnificent.
Despite its 5,500-pound bulk, the car can pick up its skirts and waft from standstill to 60mph in an impressive 4.8 seconds. Yet what drops jaws is the athletic manner at which this majestic carriage can scythe around curves. As you’d expect, with self-leveling air springing, the ride quality is magic-carpet-like. For the ultimate in comfort, the stretched-by seven-inch extended wheel-base model gets closer to the Phantom in spatial luxury without looking from the outside like a prom-night Town Car.
Essentially, the 2020 Rolls-Royce Ghost is the kid brother of the iconic Phantom. It is an entry-level model that showcases all the luxuries associated with Rolls-Royce ownership but with a more realistic approach. Starting at $311,900 for base models, it is still a luxurious vehicle and is also available as an Extended Wheelbase or a Black Badge model. The latest model stays true to its roots with only minor upgrades to the dash including a head-up display and night-vision camera. It also retains a focus on rear-seat passengers, as many passengers in Rolls-Royce models are being escorted by personal drivers. Rear-hinged doors are a staple, which remains, along with twin 9.2-inch screens and sumptuous materials.
