Expert Review

Swapnil Kulshrestha October 7, 2019


The Ghost inherits all the Rolls Royce traits, with an ultra-luxurious interior, a powerful V12 engine, and a double-wishbone suspension setup, which can simply swallow the toughest of shocks out there. 

The Ghost comes in only one trim, however, it has got two variants Short-Wheelbase and Long-Wheelbase. As the name suggests the LWB variant stretches the wheelbase by 13 cms for an additional $33,000. The LWB variant grants you more interior and cargo space.

2019 Rolls-Royce Ghost Engine

With 563 horsepower coming from a massive twin-turbo V12, the big sedan gathers speed effortlessly.” - Edmunds

Engine and Transmission

2020 Rolls Royce Ghost Series 2 engine 2020 Rolls Royce Ghost Series 2 Engine

The core of this sophisticated brute is a 6.75L V12 motor, which is fit for creating an incredible 563bhp along with 605 pound-feet of torque, which kicks in at 1500 rpm. The engine of the Ghost is way too refined to even think about evening make the scarcest of clamor. The V12 glides the Ghost from 0-60 mph in around 4.8 seconds.

The Spirit of Ecstacy, however, applies some high-tech innovation to the Ghost’s transmission. The ride features a satellite-aided gearbox that employs GPS to analyze the road you are on. As a result, the transmission predicts your driving style and your driving needs and carries the shifting duties accordingly.

Acceleration

The Rolls Royce Ghost is unquestionably an amazing vehicle, however, acceleration definitely does not appear to be its USP. The ride requires 4.8 seconds, so as to contact the 60 mph mark from an absolute halt, but the catch here is that the Rolls rides are simply not implied for straight-line speeding up.

Braking

The Rolls Royce Ghost Series ll features the biggest set of brake calipers. The ride houses a 16.1-inch brake rotor on the front wheels and 15.8-inch towards the rear end. This combination put on a spectacular show, bringing the 5490-pound vehicle from 60 MPH to 0 in a distance of just 107 ft.

Ride and Handling

The 2019 Rolls Royce Ghost Series ll is considered an ideal chauffer-duty car, but the ride is more than tempting to grab the steering wheel in your own hands. With a massive V12 producing 563 hp, the ride is immense and mighty. The chassis is absolutely flawless and highly-versatile, making the car simple glide on all sorts of roads. The air-sprung suspension is another highlight of this star-studded ride. The suspension is highly sensitive and always maintains a poised ride-height according to the different modes. The double-wishbone suspension structure allows maximized steering precision providing for a stable and tuned ride. 

2019 Rolls-Royce Ghost Fuel Economy

Well if you are thinking about going for rolls, this is the section which concerns you the most, however, the Ghost Series ll burns some serious dead dinosaurs under its long, enchanting hood. The ride presents you with a city MPG figure of 12 and a highway MPG figure of 19. Combine these and you get 14 MPG, which is going to fall very heavy in your deep-pockets.

It's no-myth that only the luckiest ones get to be inside the cabin of a Rolls, and these lucky few are catered with the world’s finest and most esteemed materials. The ride provides more than enough space to let even the tallest of the adult stretch back leisurely. The driving position for the Ghost is slightly raised and the conventional dashboard displays all the necessary driving information. Every knob and button is wrapped in the utmost premium quality leather, wood, or metal. No matter whether a surface is visible or not, but if it's inside a Rolls, the quality is bound to be plush. 

Another starring of the Ghost’s interior is the star-studded headliner, which replicates a star-lit night. This cluster of stars simulates the look of driving directly under the night’s sky. The stars are made from different size LEDs, however, this highlight happens to be an optional one. 

Some of the most distinctive features of the Ghost are:

  •  Umbrella Holder in the door
  • Champagne Chiller
  • Front Massage Seats
  • Theatre Rear Sitting
  • Compass

Dimensions and Styling

The Rolls Royce Ghost is the heaviest and tallest vehicle in the given segment. The entry-level vehicle of the Spirit of Ecstacy carries the orthodox Rolls character with an aggrandizing front grille and buff edges. The Ghost shares bits of its basic structure with the preceding generation BMW 7-series.

The coach doors, which have been pretty much the Trademark of the company lend a touch of sophistication to the Ghost. The rear-hinged doors sport soft-close feature which makes them move elegantly, and all that at the touch of a button. The wheels of the Ghost house unique floating wheel centers, which makes the RR logo always stay upright, regardless of the rotation.

2019 Rolls-Royce Ghost Final Verdict

The Rolls Royce Ghost is an unquestionable must purchase (on the off chance that you can). Priced at a hefty whole of $315,900 the Ghost can be checked among the most extravagant rides on earth. Despite the fact that it falls behind its rivals in certain aspects, it has its very own arrangement of superpowers. In any case, the Ghost is additionally the most costly choice in its fragment, however, the extravagance remainder legitimizes the sticker price (as observed from a Rolls' aficionados POV). The Ghost isn't just about extravagance but at the same time is an extraordinary performer.
