More power for the upper crust
Rolls-Royce has come a long way from the times when it refused to give exact horsepower numbers by merely stating that the power was sufficient. With the introduction of the new, sportier Wraith fastback coupe, Rolls-Royce has decided to offer that hotter model's more powerful V12 in the Ghost sedan, which shares the same platform.
Consequently, the 2015 Rolls-Royce Ghost V-Specification, which will be offered in both the standard and extended wheelbases, will have 30 additional horsepower from its 6.6-liter V12 boosting total output to 593. Still, the 0-62 mph acceleration remains the same at 4.7-seconds.
In addition to a choice of five-specially selected colors, buyers can also specify one of 44,000 hues in the Rolls-Royce palette. The V-Specification package also includes 21-inch wheels and tires, visible chrome exhaust tips, special embossed sill plates embossed and an exclusive clock design with a black crown surrounding the face. Rolls-Royce is mum on price for the V-Specification (the standard Ghost starts at about $260,000), but is inviting customers to "commission" cars from now until June.
