This is the naturally stylish 2012 Rolls-Royce Ghost. The Ghost is the essence of Rolls-Royce in its simplest, purest form. The classic Rolls-Royce proportions are all present and correct; the ideal 2:1 ratio of the height of the wheels to the height of the body; the long wheelbase and bonnet; the short overhang at the front and the long overhang at the rear. Indeed, Rolls-Royce's Chief Designer has his own unique way of describing Ghost. "Ghost is more like a well-tailored jacket than a formal suit. Its powerful presence and proportions leave you in no doubt that it's cut from the same cloth as the rest of the marque." In our opinion, it sums up perfectly what we set out to achieve.
The 2012 Rolls-Royce Ghost will effortlessly propel you from 0 to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds. While these figures are impressive in their own right, what separates them from other performance cars is how gracefully and smoothly their new twin turbo 6.6-liter V12 engine delivers a seemingly endless surge of power. This is hardly surprising considering a maximum torque of 575 lb.-ft. is available as low as 1,500 rpm. Or that it's capable of generating 563 bhp. What is surprising though, is the impression the eight-speed automatic ZF gearbox gives of having an infinite first gear. And the feeling of utter exhilaration that only a beaming smile can truly express.
The first time you push the start button and press the accelerator of the 2012 Rolls-Royce Ghost, you will be astonished by the lack of noise from the engine. Then by how whisper-quiet it remains, no matter how hard you push it. The airsprings, electronically controlled dampers and Active Roll Stabilization take multiple readings from sensors around the car and continually adjust the suspension accordingly. This ensures they stay level at all times, even when travelling flat out along uneven road surfaces. Not only does this make for a more dynamic and less tiring ride for the driver, it also improves ride comfort for the passengers. More importantly, it helps create the magic carpet-like ride Rolls-Royce is famous for.
