The Rolls-Royce Ghost is powered by an impressive 6.6L twin-turbo V12 that produces 563 horsepower and 605 lbs. ft of torque. The optional Black Badge edition makes 603 horsepower and 620 lb of ft torque. It's mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with a column-style shift lever. So the Ghost wafts up to speed in classic English luxury-car fashion, with even less noise in the cabin than in past Rolls-Royce models on its 19-inch run flat tires. The Ghost follows Rolls-Royce styling tradition on the outside, for the most part, with a long hood, short front overhang and an upright windshield. The modern Ghost has just a little more modern panache, especially on the inside. The hood, grille and windshield surround can be done in a polished satin finish if desired. Teflon-coated umbrellas are integrated into the front doors, while the rear-hinged rear doors open up to 83 degrees and can be closed with a touch of a button. A panoramic sunroof lets a lot of light in from overhead as well, while three zone climate control ensures that everyone is comfortable. Optional individual lounge seating provides a massage function for all the positions, as well as a 10-way power adjustable, ventilated perforated leather upholstery; also available is a chilled cooler box, with added illumination and integrated champagne glasses. Yet another addition is the small wood-veneer picnic tables--fitted to the back of the front seats with leather-covered backs accompanied by two 9.2-inch rear entertainment high resolution screens is an option. Cabin materials and craftsmanship have long been Rolls-Royce strengths; with natural veneers, hand-matched woodgrain, hand-stitched interior panels and drum-dyed soft leathers offered 30 different color options--along with a number of other custom trims--it's nearly impossible that any two Ghosts will look the same. Rolls-Royces have a tradition of being rather simple when it comes to technology features, but the Ghost pushes that a bit. On the center console, a rotary controller accesses tasks on its 10.25 inch display like navigation, Satellite radio, and a roller-ball controller on the steering wheel helps navigate through some of the menus. Numerous other amenities inclusive to the driver are head-up display, night vision camera, and Android/Apple Carplay. Entertainment is provided by a majestic 600-watt, 10-channel, 16-speaker sound system by Bespoke Sound with two floor subwoofers, hard-drive storage, USB and aux inputs. The Ghost, which is built on a steel monocoque structure, utilizes a 4-wheel independent suspension with air springs front and back, controlled via an automatic adaptive variable suspension system. The system can even detect the distribution of passengers and adjust accordingly. The Dynamic Stability Control system also works together with this system and Cornering Brake Control to give the Ghost a nimbler feel than is typical for such a large, heavy sedan. The Rolls Royce Ghost is the safest Sedan in its segment. It gets a lot of class-leading safety features and scores a 5-star crash test score from IIHS and NHTSA. A host of the active-safety features include lane departure warning, high beam assist, Lane change assist, forward collision warning, 4 sided camera's, adaptive LED headlights, Rolls Royce Emergency Assist SOS, and active cruise control. There's even an Advanced Crash and Safety Management system that uses sensors to decide which safety features to deploy.
