The Ghost is described as the most technologically advanced Rolls-Royce in history. Introduced in 2020. We can assure you that this is the kind of product that can ruin the rest of the cars in the world for you once you get to experience it.
The 2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended is a longer version of the second-generation Ghost, introduced in 2020. About 6 inches longer than the standard Ghost, the Ghost Extended basically has a longer wheelbase, which translates into increased legroom for rear seat passengers. Rolls-Royce describes the new Ghost as representing the Post Opulence design philosophy.
The concept eschews superficial expressions of wealth, making this model less flashy than it might have been given its price. But Rolls-Royce models have never been flashy, they have always had a higher level of elegance.
The huge V12 petrol engine is the silent and wild heart of the Ghost. It starts effortlessly from low revs, with almost imperceptible gear changes, ensuring that you simply glide through towns, country roads and motorways.
If necessary, it will catapult you from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds, with the help of the standard four-wheel drive. Plus, it can keep up an impressive pace when the road turns; although the Ghost leans noticeably in corners, there is plenty of grip.
The direction is also impressive; It’s very light when you’re going around town, but it’s heavy enough when you’re going faster to help you position the Ghost with precision and confidence.
Like all other Rolls-Royces, the Ghost has air suspension as standard. Careful calibration ensures that it removes most surface imperfections and deals with the biggest potholes effectively enough to make it one of the most comfortable cars in the world, and that it can handle long journeys like a private jet. .
And when revved up enough to unleash the V12’s soundtrack, that’s about the only outside noise that can penetrate the Ghost’s heavy-duty sound insulation. In more moderate use, the motor is so smooth, quiet, and vibration-free that you’ll sometimes wonder if it’s working
The Rolls Royce Ghost Long has a four-wheel drive, it’s possible – and enjoyable – to drag the 2.5-tonne Ghost out of junctions as fast as physics allow.
All the controls also seem expensive in their operation. Also, the infotainment system is fantastic. It’s based on BMW’s fantastic iDrive system, but in a carefully tailored Rolls-Royce guise, and can be operated via the rotary knob on the center console or via the large center touchscreen. For us it’s brilliantly simple and packed with features.
There’s also a crisp, clear instrument display that, while fully digital, still has the sleek look of traditional analog dials.
However, this is more than a story of cutting-edge technology and impeccable quality; the Ghost also offers good ergonomics. The seat and steering wheel are excellently adjustable and forward visibility is very good.
The view over the driver’s shoulders is somewhat hampered by bulky rear pillars, but a 360-degree camera comes standard to guide maneuvers up close.
By now you will have understood that the Ghost is an exceptional car. We have to highlight the front of the exterior where there are 20 LED lights under the radiator grille that gently illuminate the upper part of the grille. Both doors open and close electronically, and share windows of equal proportion.
Every inch of Ghost’s interior showcases exquisite materials and expert craftsmanship. Almost everything is wrapped in leather, carved from wood, or milled from metal, and there are few man-made settings in which it feels more special.
All in all, the car is as enjoyable to drive as it is to be driven, the new Ghost is also reminiscent of the days of Roll-Royce bodied models such as the Silver Dawn and Silver Cloud.
