Rolls-Royce equips Ghost with more powerful engine

Available for a limited time only

In December 2013, when we shot the Philippines\' first Rolls-Royce Wraith a few days before it was delivered to its owner, we were told by the distributor, British Bespoke Automobiles, that the luxury carmaker was coming out with a more powerful version of the Ghost.

Well, that time has come, and apparently it\'s only available \"for customers to commission from January to June 2014.\"

The car is the Ghost V-Specification and is available as a limited-series Ghost and Ghost Extended Wheelbase. Propelling it forward is Rolls-Royce\'s 6.6-liter V12 engine whose power output has been bumped up to 593hp, a 30hp increase that slots it in between the standard Ghost and the 624hp Wraith.

Rolls-Royce also claims that the Ghost V-Specification can sprint from zero to nearly 100kph in 4.7 seconds \"with 80% of power available from idle.\"

\"This limited series celebrates one of the Ghost’s defining characteristics--the exquisite 6.6-liter Rolls-Royce V12 engine,\" said Rolls-Royce Motor Cars chief executive Torsten Muller-Otvos. \"Since its introduction in 2009, an extraordinary marriage of assured presence and remarkable driving dynamics has endeared the Ghost to a new generation of highly discerning businessmen and women, ensuring the car’s position as the statement of choice for a growing band of successful entrepreneurs around the world.\"

Ah, the concerns of the ultra rich.
