The New Rolls Royce Ghost: Luxury Legacy Meets Potent Performance

From one of the most expensive (A$36.8 million) cars ever made to exquisite custom creations, the British luxury car manufacturer is behind some of the best cars ever made. Here’s a look at the latest in its iconic Ghost Collection. This is the new Rolls-Royce Ghost 2021.

The new Rolls-Royce Ghost 2021 continues the companies 116 year legacy for creating some of the finest four-wheeled machines on the market. The Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge combines this luxury legacy with potency, power and performance.

What Rolls-Royce defines as its ‘post-opulence’ era, the 2021 Ghost is a brilliantly modern redesign – a trendy minimalist take on the marque’s best-seller. Casual observers will be forgiven for not immediately noticing the subtle upgrades in the latest model. Similar proportions are to be found all around, but what Rolls-Royce calls the new chassis, “Architecture of Luxury,” is an all-aluminium structure. The new technology makes the new Ghost lighter, stronger and more refined than ever.

The Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge takes this redesign and shapes it further. More power, more dynamic handling, and unique features that you won’t find on any other Ghost.

Performance is at the core of the Rolls-Royce Black Badge lineup so it’s no surprise that what is under the hood is more potent. Where the standard Rolls-Royce Ghost offers an impressive 563hp, the Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge steps that up to 603hp.

The same V-12, 6.6L twin-turbo engine provides power and torque that is distributed in a smooth and effortless way, taking the Ghost to 100km/h in about 4.8 seconds – not bad for a car that weighs 2.5 tonnes. The upgraded 8-speed automatic transmission allows each gear to remain for a longer duration providing smoother acceleration.

The design is simply impeccable – exactly what you would expect from a Rolls-Royce. What comes ‘standard’ on a Rolls Royce Ghost is in fact the epitome of luxury anywhere else. Inside, the minimalist style treatment, described as “post-opulence,” still features a plethora of leather, fine details, wood trim and high-end technology.

The highlights include: LED and laser headlights, electrically-adjustable, ventilated and massaging seats, an 18-speaker audio system, electrically-assisted ‘Effortless Doors’, a head-up display, multiple digital screens, active cruise control, and adaptive air suspension.

Step outside and the exterior is painstakingly crafted. Chrome finishes are everywhere and the iconic ‘Pantheon Grille’ is bigger and now lit by 20 LEDs. The car’s sweeping surfaces are styled to be elegant yet simple. The rear guards, C-pillars and roof are one panel so there’s an absence of joining lines creating a seamless look. The ‘coach style’ doors are a regular for Rolls-Royce and come with welcome electronic assistance.

If you are wondering about the Rolls-Royce Ghost price, the base model starts at A$625,000. This climbs to A$725,000 for the Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge. An ‘Extended’ long-wheelbase version of the Ghost, measuring 5716mm long (+170mm) is available for an extra A$112,000.
