The all-new Rolls-Royce Ghost has arrived in Singapore, and the second-generation version of Rolls-Royce’s best-selling car can be yours if you have S$1.3 million in spare change.

Details of the new Ghost first emerged in September, but the car made its official South East Asian debut at an event held at the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Singapore showroom at Leng Kee Road on November 9.

Two versions of the Ghost were unveiled at the event, the standard wheelbase version (above left), which starts at S$1,258,888 inclusive of COE, and the Extended long wheelbase model (above right), which retails for $1,398,888 with COE. The latter model is some 170mm longer than the regular Ghost, with all of the length going into the wheelbase for maximum legroom.

Despite boasting similar looks to its predecessor, Rolls-Royce claims that the new Ghost has been completely redesigned from the ground up, and it is both longer and wider than the outgoing car. In fact, the only items brought over from the previous model are the hidden umbrellas in the doors, and the Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament.

The more significant changes are found under the skin, and the Ghost now sits on the same aluminium-spaceframe architecture platform that underpins the Phantom and Cullinan models. It incorporates over 100kg of acoustic damping material, and cabin noise has been engineered to be reduced down to a whisper.

The Ghost also now features four-wheel-drive and four-wheel-steering, allowing for greater manoeuvrability. There is also the self-levelling air suspension that works with a set of cameras that scan the road surface ahead and ‘pre-adjust’ the suspension setup to soothe out bumps on the road.

Power comes from a 6.75-litre twin-turbo V12 engine that produces 571hp and 850Nm of torque, and propels the standard Ghost from 0-100km/h in just 4.8 seconds, despite the car weighing nearly 2.5 tonnes.

Rolls-Royce has peppered the Ghost with lots of neat little thoughtful touches to further elevate the experience. For instance, it now comes with power-assisted opening doors to make egress a much easier affair.

Other highlights include an air purifier system, and the Starlight headliner that was first seen on the Phantom. Champagne connoisseurs can also spec a champagne fridge to be installed between the rear seats, which can chill the bubbly to its optimum temperature according to its vintage.

The Ghost has become Rolls-Royce’s most successful model in the company’s 116-year history, and while Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Singapore remain tight-lipped on the number of orders it has received for the new Ghost, it states that customer response has been ‘extremely positive’. One unit has reportedly already been sold to a customer who placed his order well before the car arrived in Singapore.
