For many years now, the unveiling of a new model from Britain’s most famous luxury automotive brand has been a major occasion. In 2021 we will be getting a brand-new incarnation of their “entry-level” model, the Rolls-Royce Ghost. Don’t let the name fool you, this may be called entry-level, but it would still be out of reach for the vast majority of us with a price tag well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The 2021 Ghost really will be new – a new model built from the ground up. Fear not though, it still retains the opulent, luxurious style that we’ve all come to admire about this phenomenal brand. On top of that, drivers can look forward to some exciting new additions, too.
First of all, let’s start with personalization. Let’s not forget that Rolls-Royce cars are never mass-produced. Instead, each one is hand-crafted at the factory to the exact specification requested by the owner. How do you make your demands clear? The answer is through the Rolls-Royce configurator. From this platform, you can select your specification, exterior style and options, interior style and further personalization details. So, the first great thing about the 2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost is that it truly is your Rolls-Royce.
One or two familiar faces remain in the new Ghost, too. Probably the best example is the 6.75L V12 engine that delivers 563hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. It’s the same one they use in the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. The transmission is an 8-speed automatic, and you get AWD as standard on all models. On the outside we know you’ll love the classic clean body panels with rectangular doors made from laser-welded aluminium. There are powerful LED headlights with around 580m of range, and at the rear you get stylish angular edges on the rectangular exhaust and seamlessly integrated fenders.
The phrase “attention to detail” we believe is too meagre to describe the sumptuous and fine interior of the new 2021 Ghost. Expect thick, lustrous carpets, real wood paneling usually hewn and matched from the same tree for each vehicle, pure metal accenting and even an LED-lined headliner that creates a “starry night” effect for passengers to enjoy as they cruise along.
Further enhancements include massaging rear seats, rear-seat entertainment systems, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a large infotainment touchscreen for which Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can easily interface. Load up your favorite playlist and listen to it through the 18-speaker Bespoke sound system, or simply lie back and look at the stars. In short, the new Ghost has everything to offer those who can get it. Try out the configurator and see just how much your own you can make this incredible new Rolls-Royce.
