Rolls-Royce Powers Ghost V-Specification With V12 Engine & Twin Turbochargers

CARPHOTO-1762

Should you be buying a Rolls-Royce a couple of decades ago and inquired regarding how much power it produced, the official answer you’d receive was “adequate” – or, in the case of a turbocharged model, “perfectly adequate.” But those days are far behind, because while Rolls-Royce continues to produce engines with over six and a half liters of capacity – a size that would put most muscle cars to shame – the amount of power they produce keeps climbing. Especially when it comes to its newer, smaller models.

Of course “smaller” is a relative term, and also the comparatively compact Ghost remains larger than most luxury sedans. And to motivate it, parent company BMW developed a 6.6-liter V12 engine with twin turbochargers that generate a gargantuan 563 horsepower. But even that massive output was dwarfed when Rolls-Royce turned the Ghost saloon into the Wraith fastback coupe, in which the same engine has become retuned to create an even more prodigious 624 horsepower. Those seeking the accommodations offered by the Ghost, combined with performance approaching that of the Wraith, will be pleased by the arrival of your new Ghost V-Specification.

“This limited series celebrates one of Ghost’s defining characteristics; the exquisite 6.6 litre Rolls-Royce V12 engine,” said Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös. “”Since its introduction in 2009, an extraordinary marriage of assured presence and remarkable driving dynamics has endeared Ghost to a new generation of highly discerning businessmen and women, ensuring the car’s position as the statement of choice for a growing band of successful entrepreneurs around the globe.

Offered on both the standard and long-wheelbase versions from the Ghost sedan, the V-Specification upgrades to 593hp – evenly splitting the difference in output between the base Ghost and the more powerful Wraith. As a result, the V-Specification model can reach 60 miles per hour from a standstill within 4.7 seconds.

Along with the boost in output, this model is distinguished by 21-inch wheels, a hand-painted coachline, special treadplates, embroidered leather, a unique clock in the dashboard, and five exterior color choices selected specifically for the V-Specification design. Of course, buyers can still select from the 44,000 colors offered in the Rolls-Royce catalog should the unique shades of black, grey or white prove anything less than adequate.
