After a couple of years on the market, it’s time for the Ghost to receive a minor facelift.
Having been on the market since 2010, Rolls-Royce has apparently deemed it time to give the Ghost a mid-cycle refresh, these spy shots revealing what changes are afoot for the 2014 model. Don’t expect any major revisions, however, as the luxury sedan has helped the British carmaker reach the highest sales figures in its 108-year history, selling ten times as many cars as it did just a decade ago with one of three of those sold being a Ghost. Parent company BMW is also minded not to make current owners’ cars look dated.
Distinguishing features on the updated model are not easy to spot thanks to some crafty camouflage. New headlights and a restyled front bumper bring the Ghost closer in line with the Wraith, while the mirrors have been revised and the tailpipes hidden from view. Interior upgrades will be largely limited to an updated infotainment system, and the 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 will also be modified for improved performance and economy coupled with reduced CO2 emissions. Given the modest revisions, we expect the facliefted 2014 Ghost to be introduced later in the year, most likely at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
