Top Gear Philippines Philippine Car News - Rolls-Royce Manila launches Ghost Series II

As we reported yesterday, Rolls-Royce's official Philippine-market distributor, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Manila, had officially opened its permanent showroom in the country. It also used the occasion to launch the Ghost Series II, an update of the Ghost that had been in production since 2010.

The Ghost Series II's front fascia has been slightly redesigned, with new all-LED headlights, a taller chromed grille, and resculptured front bumpers. The hood has also been updated with a tapered 'wake channel' that originates from the Spirit of Ecstasy ornament, which has been angled forward even more to give it a sense of dynamism.

Inside, the front seats have been redesigned as well and fitted with electronically adjustable thigh supports. The rear seats have been re-angled supposedly "to augment effortless communication with fellow passengers." The clock and the instrument dials sport matte-chrome centers, three-dimensional chrome surrounds, and polished metal chaplets. Full-grain leather, the same high-grade leather used in the Phantom but processed for an additional four hours to accentuate the natural grain structure of the material, is also used as standard in the Ghost Series II.

Finally, the signature Rolls-Royce air-cushioned "magic carpet ride" suspension has been enhanced even further through the re-engineered front and rear struts, new steering gear, adjusted dampers, and new hydraulic rear axle bearings.

According to Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Manila VIP sales manager Jeff Lizardo, the price of the standard wheelbase Ghost Series II starts at P31.5 million, while the extended-wheelbase model begins at P35 million. Of course, the prices will go up depending on the level of customization a customer desires.
