The second generation Rolls-Royce Ghost tests, expected for 2020, are continuing
The second-generation Rolls-Royce Ghost has been snapped during its on-road assessment in Germany.
Like the recently-revised Phantom, the new Ghost will be based on the company’s all-new “Architecture of Luxury” platform. The fully-scalable, all-aluminium space-frame chassis will be used to underpin all next-generation Rolls-Royces,
From these spy shots shooted by photographers and published on the English Auto Express website don't show radical revisions to the Ghost’s exterior design, with updates being limited to a slightly smaller grille, a fresh set of LED headlights, new daytime running lights and reworked tail lights.
Inside it is legitimate to expect the Ghost will adopt Rolls-Royce’s latest infotainment system and digital dash, as seen in the new Phantom and Cullinan. This means a 12.3-inch TFT screen in place of the old model’s conventional analogic gauges and a concealable central screen, which disappears into the dash.
Under the bonnet, the new Ghost should be fitted with the latest iteration of Rolls’ 6.6-litre V12. The engine will likely be mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox and offer power figures in excess of 560bhp.
A reveal will take place in 2020.
