The exterior gets only a minor update, but the Ghost now carries more technology on the inside, with Rolls-Royce declaring its cabin “the calmest place for successful entrepreneurs to run their enterprises”.
On-board Wi-Fi is now featured in the Ghost, along with a Satellite Aided Transmission (SAT), which ensures the car adapts to the current driving environment.
The infotainment and navigation systems have received an update to improve the user experience, and a new Bespoke Audio system is optional, which Rolls says is “the most exhaustively engineered and finest audio system in automotive history”.
Exterior updates include re-sculpted LED headlights, a tapered ‘wake channel’ on the bonnet, redesigned bumpers and improved air intakes for the front brakes.
“The Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II is the ultimate entrepreneur’s business tool,” Rolls-Royce CEO, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, said.
“Following the worldwide success of its predecessor, I am confident that this re-designed and updated Rolls-Royce will continue to attract increasing numbers of new customers to the marque, in particular business entrepreneurs seeking an oasis of calm in a frenetic business world.”
Rolls-Royce recently announced a special edition V-Specification model of its current Ghost and Ghost Extended Wheelbase, available only until the end of June.
Australian customers can expect a late 2014 arrival for the Ghost Series II, with global pricing to be announced in April.
Local pricing will be confirmed following the April announcement, with the current 2014 Rolls-Royce Ghost priced at $645,000 and $695,000 for the Ghost Extended Wheelbase – both drive-away.
