It’s not every day you get the chance to see a tuned-up Rolls Royce. In fact, we would love to hear about any Rolls Royce out there that has received the attention of a professional tuning firm other than the one that we are about to present to you. Tuning firm, Mansory, has made the Ghost luxury sedan look even sportier and more elegant than before. The package is called Ghost White Limited and includes both engine and aerodynamic updates.
The car is painted in a subtle white and adds a new front-end featuring additional LED daytime running lights and vertical air outlets on the sides. The Ghost will also get new side skirts, rear view mirrors on each side, a rear spoiler, and a rear apron with implied diffuser and dual sport-exhaust-system. The exterior package is finished by 22" diamond-polished wheels.
The interior gets high grade leather with a cross-stitched pattern, headliner and dash board made of Alcantara, and sports steering wheel with bamboo inserts.
The engine has been optimized to deliver a total of 638 HP at 5700 rpm and a peak torque of 860 NM up from the standard 563bhp and 780 NM of torque. The result is a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in a slower 4.5 seconds, but a top speed of 180 mph (up from 155mph).
Such a luxurious and classy car may not need any upgrades to further its level of sophistication and, quite honestly, we are debating on whether or not such a car should even see the hands of a tuner. That being said, there is no harm in improving on what we have already been given, so let us know of any professionally tuned Rolls Royce vehicles you have seen. We’d be interested in compiling a list of the classiest projects that have been completed.
Press release after the jump.
Based on the Rolls-Royce Ghost concept, the vehicle-customizer Kourosh Mansory presents one of the three limited luxury-car specimens. Subtle modifications designed to increase the car’s elegance and add a touch of sportiness are priority. The latter especially, is achieved by adapting the engine-electronic in an impressive manner, which results in increased overall performance. A unique overall concept with exclusive features emerges.
Sophisticated elegance characterises the White Ghost’s Limited image. The name ties into the theme here: MANSORY wraps the Rolls-Royce’s silhouette in a subtle white hue. It accents the car’s body style as well as its understated upgrades in an optimal and stylish manner. The new front-end featuring additional LED daytime running lights and vertical air outlets on the sides, directly beneath the serial cooling grill are distinct eye-catchers. This is in perfect harmony with MANSORY’s side skirts, the rear view mirrors on each side, the rear spoiler as well as the rear apron with implied diffuser and dual sport-exhaust-system.
The sportiness implied by the exterior-kit is also emphasised under its long hood. The optimised engine map as well as the dual sports exhaust system enhances the Rolls-Royce’s performance significantly. Instead of the standard 570 PS (420 kW) MANSORY’s upgraded White Ghost Limited series now features a powerful 638 PS (469 kW) at 5700 revolutions per minute (RPM). The engineers in the Bavarian city of Brand near Bayreuth enhanced the maximum torque from 780 to an amazing 860 Newton metre. This enables the engine to accelerate the 2360 kilogram vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4,5 seconds and therewith saves 0,4 seconds in comparison to the serial version. Thanks to the revoked speed limit, acceleration is no longer limited to 250, but rather to 290 km/h.
Upon improved performance the wheel dimensions have also grown. MANSORY created a new design especially for the White Ghost Limited. Its innovative configuration harmonises perfectly with the design of White Ghost Limited. The massive compact wheels with a diamond-polished surface measure an impressive 22 inches. The 9 inch front axle wheels are equipped with 265/35 Dunlop SP SportMaxx high-performance tyres, while the rear axle features 10.5 inch wheels with a tyre size of 295/30.
In cohesion with the exquisite exterior upgrades, the interior is an oasis of luxury. Large parts of the interior are covered in high grade leather with a cross-stitched pattern and enhanced by a headliner and dash board made of Alcantara. The sports steering wheel together with the light colours bamboo inserts creates an unsurpassed exclusive atmosphere. The illuminated entries and implemented ambiance lighting effects are another addition: Seats, door panels and dash board feature LED’s which provide pleasant lighting throughout the entire interior.
The company’s founder Kourosh Mansory has again excelled in upgrading a vehicle of the upper luxury class to unsurpassed heights. Featuring the new upgrades, the Rolls-Royce Ghost represents itself in a new character. Technology and luxury are in perfect synergy and proudly demonstrate the distinguishable design.
