The British marque might have something to say about that.
Brabus is the go-to name for anything luxurious and ridiculous in the world of high-end vehicles and has been treating us to some of the most insane and over-the-top builds for years. The German tuning company's latest project, simply named the Brabus 700, is a showcase of what it can accomplish when given the most luxurious platform to work with: a Rolls-Royce Ghost. In stock form, this British land yacht already epitomizes vehicular extravagance, but Brabus has managed to turn it up to eleven with a range of choice exterior, interior, and engine modifications.
The exterior of the Brabus 700 features a fully custom exposed carbon fiber body kit in a choice of glossy or matt finish. The kit includes a front lip spoiler which Brabus claims reduces front axle lift at high speeds, a subtle rear lip spoiler, a carbon diffuser, and four Brabus carbon/titanium exhaust pipes. This special Rolls-Royce sits on a set of Brabus Platinum Edition monoblock forged wheels available in 21 or 22-inch diameter. These wheels look great but also aid in performance by optimizing brake ventilation and cooling. The car is also lowered on a Brabus lowering module that drops the standard air suspension system by 1.2 inches.
The interior features soft and breathable, porcelain-colored leather upholstery with black piping and square quilting. Even the floor is covered in quilted leather, and the headliner is crafted from the finest Alcantara. Other interior features include polished stainless pedals, carbon trim on the dashboard, and carbon scuff plates.
Under the hood, this big Rolls hides a 6.75 liter twin-turbo V12 that produces 563 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque in stock form. Brabus adds its own custom PowerXtra RR68-700 unit and variable exhaust system with butterfly valves that kicks power up to 700 hp and 701 lb-ft of torque. This allows for a 0-60 mph sprint in only 4.6 seconds. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, talk to Brabus, because we don't even want to know what this kit costs.
