Espied: Next-gen Rolls-Royce Ghost takes after Phantom, Cullinan
The new generation of the Rolls-Royce Ghost may be right around the corner, but the recently revealed spy shots make it abundantly clear that the update is mainly about the cabin trim, and not the exterior.
The next iteration of the Rolls-Royce Ghost gets a plethora of state-of-the-art features from its siblings, the Phantom and the Cullinan. The instrument cluster retains its chrome bezel, but the instruments themselves are now digital, and there is an enormous multimedia display directly to the right of them.
Despite the thick test mule wrap, you can still just about make out the general outlines of the center console, the controls and the air blowers – everything here looks styled like in the Cullinan/Phantom, too.
The next-gen Ghost will take advantage of Rolls-Royce’s new platform proudly marketed as the Architecture of Luxury. It will come powered by an improved version of the standard 6.75-liter V12 engine.
Simultaneously with the main release, the manufacturer will introduce a special Rolls-Royce Ghost edition that will pay homage to the legendary Silver Ghost dating 112 years back. Piloted by Claude Johnson and Charles Rolls, the vintage car has covered 23,000+ kilometers (14,300+ miles) without a single breakdown.
The Silver Ghost will emerge in a series of just 35 cars, each adorned with a Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament cast from pure silver.
