GHOST, the most successful model in the history of the Rolls-Royce brand for more than a century, moved to the new generation this year. This sedan, the brand's best-selling model in 10 years, finished production last year. He got a lot of feedback from his customers about what they wanted for the new model, and more importantly, he listened to that feedback. According to Rolls-Royce, the new Ghost has become a "Future Oriented" car with "Perfection of Simplicity" reflecting the changing needs of its customers today.
We followed Rolls-Royce's introduction to the second generation Ghost with the video series they shared throughout August.
Engineers have modified the aluminum-density Luxury Architecture that supports Phantom and Cullinan in Standard and Extended Wheelbase specifications to suit Ghost's needs. Introduced on the digital platform, the new generation Ghost maintains the authoritative attitude of Rolls-Royce.
The second generation Ghost, the most technologically advanced Rolls-Royce model ever; LED and laser headlights with illumination distance of more than 600 meters, wildlife and pedestrian warning focused vision aid in day and night vision, awake assistant, four-camera system with 360 ° and helicopter view, active cruise control, collision warning, cross traffic warning, lane It is the most technologically advanced Rolls-Royce ever produced, including departure and lane change warning, industry-leading 7 × 3 high-resolution head-up display, wireless port, parking assistant, state-of-the-art navigation and entertainment systems.
Feedback from customers, who usually want instant torque and silence, has enabled the brand to further develop the 6.75-liter twin-turbocharged V12 gasoline engine related to Rolls-Royce. 850Nm / 627lb ft of torque and 563bhp / 420kW of power have been transferred to the all-wheel steering, all-wheel drive system.
The new Ghost uses a new Micro Environmental Treatment System (MEPS).
It channels all of the cabin air through the Nano-Fleece filter, which can remove almost all ultra-fine particles from Rolls-Royce's micro-environment in less than two minutes.
Thanks to the handcrafted aluminum body structures, the main structure of the car looks like a single continuous fluid canvas with closed lines, evoking the Silver Dawn and Silver Cloud models. For the first time, his iconic statue Spirit of Ecstasy is not surrounded by panel lines, but in its own hood "lake".
The distinctive feature of the brand, Magic Carpet Ride, has evolved. Incorporating the world's first upper swing damper unit, the car can now predict the most challenging road surfaces and react instantly to them.
Created specifically for Rolls-Royce, this technology alone is the Top Swing Damper, the result of five years of collective road and comparison tests.
This software, called Planar, also manages information that requires the new Ghost to proactively adapt to intruders on the driving route. The first of these technologies is the brand's Flagbearer system.
Reminiscent of the men who were required to carry a red flag in front of the first motor vehicles according to the law, this technology consists of a stereo camera system integrated into the windshield and adjusts the suspension proactively instead of reactive at up to 100 km / h.
Second, Rolls-Royce's Satellite Assisted Transmission system, which pulls GPS data to pre-select the optimum gear for upcoming bends.
For this car, a special group of designers, engineers and craftsmen of the brand have created a new illuminated panel. Developed over two years, over 10.000 hours, this remarkable piece brings the Ghost nameplate surrounded by more than 850 stars to the interior of the motor car. The constellation and sign on the passenger side of the instrument panel are completely invisible when the interior lights are not working.
The Bespoke Collective, which fits perfectly with the new Ghost's Post Opulent design application, creates a true luxury innovation instead of using screen technology to achieve the effect that users want. The lighting itself consists of 152 LEDs mounted above and below the dashboard, each color matched to the car's clock and indicator dial. A 90.000mm thick light guide with more than 2 laser etched dots on the surface was used to ensure that the Ghost signature was evenly lit. This not only distributes the light evenly, it also creates a glow effect on the fascia that reflects the subtle glow of the Star Headliner as the vehicle moves.
As of September with a new generation was introduced Ghost, in the days ahead that are coming to Turkey.
