Rolls Royce’s Ghost Model – The Brand New Luxury Variant
The newly launched variant of Ghost model by the ultra-luxury car maker, Rolls Royce has struck a starting price of Rs 3.05 crore in order to tap the growing luxury car market. British company has already announced that Ghost Extended Wheelbase powered by a 6.6 litre petrol engine will be soon available in the markets. Business Development Head at Rolls-Royce India said that demand for luxury cars is growing rapidly in India and they want to tap the market with the launch of this new model.
The company is also anticipating that every third car being sold in India would be the new Ghost Extended Wheelbase, but for the time being they do not want to put a number to it. He also added that although exact numbers cannot be expected for now, but they are very optimistic for this year and so they are strictly working hard to expand the market.
Last year, company sold almost 80 units in the country and now it is planning to expand the network. Additionally, India being one of the major markets for the brand in Asia, it is looking forward to enhance its distribution. Right now, it has only two dealerships, one in Delhi and the other in Mumbai. Apart from company selling Phantom and Ghost in the country, it is also expected to add more dealerships.
Rolls Royce’s New Variant
Rolls Royce believes Ghost to be its essence in the simplest and purest form. The extended wheelbase, 2:1 ratio of height of the wheels and short and long overhang in the front and rear end, makes it a perfect drive for all those who want to experience luxury to the most. The exterior design feels absolutely natural and not styled. The finely equipped V-12 engine is whisper-quiet while accelerating, which allows people to revel in the scenery unobtrusively while enjoying the drive. Moreover, this car is well-engineered to make a strong grip with the road, so that during the dynamic drive, occupants can actually luxuriate in the magic carpet drive.
The simple yet contemporary interiors include full grain leather, Blenheim wool carpets and natural wood veneers that leave you with a wonderful experience while entering and exiting the car. With a top speed of 250 km/h and 9.6 ltr of extra urban fuel consumption, you can enjoy a swift and smooth drive. In addition to this, the engine is designed for octane grade 95 fuel, but it can also run on fuel with a minimum octane grade of 91. The Rack and Pinion steering with speed sensitive variable rate power assistance and ventilated discs for front and rear brakes are some added features that are sure to charm you.
