Luxury sedan shows off a few subtle changes.
Tomorrow, the new Rolls-Royce Ghost will finally be unveiled after a series of teasers from the luxury brand that showed off its stunning illuminated dashboard and another that merely showed us an outline of the car.
The latest video teaser is light on any tangible details but beautiful to watch, with the clip showing a piece of fabric gently flowing around the Ghost's body and revealing just one or two more little aspects of the design. Whereas the current Ghost has a headlight cluster that isn't a complete rectangle, the new one seems to have a squarer border.
An earlier teaser of the lights in three different stages of illumination shows their straighter edges relative to the current model. Laser headlights will be offered, promising a visual range of close to 2,000 feet. The general proportions look familiar, although the roof appears to taper with more of an angle as it stretches to the back.
Other than a few close-up shots of the Spirit of Ecstacy hood ornament, the teaser doesn't reveal anything else to go on. The other big development is that the new Ghost will come with both all-wheel drive and all-wheel steering, and we expect it to use a 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 producing over 550 horsepower.
Coinciding with the launch of the new Ghost will be the rolling out of the British brand's updated brand identity, with a look and feel that is edgier than before and successfully appeals to a gradually younger Rolls-Royce clientele.
The Ghost is a vital model as it has become a best-seller for the brand since being introduced in 2009. Although far from affordable, it starts at over $100,000 less than the bigger Phantom and has become a more appealing choice for customers who prefer to do the driving themselves. We'll finally be able to set eyes on possibly the finest sedan in the world tomorrow.
