The Ghost Series II from Rolls-Royce has undergone a subtle redesign with re-sculpted LED headlights outlined by daytime running lights and a tapered “wake channel” that starts right behind the Spirit of Ecstasy’s wings. The Ghost’s bumpers have also been re-sculpted, giving it a stronger stance and a sense of extra width and height. Further contemporary details include the addition of chrome inserts to the front air intakes.
The car comes outfitted with Satellite Aided Transmission as standard equipment which uses GPS data to anticipate the driver’s demands, choosing the proper gear for the road ahead and the speed at which the car is being driven. Although the Ghost II is powered by a 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine, Rolls-Royce has, in typical fashion, has thus far avoided delivering any specific power levels.
