The famous Goodwood Festival of Speed started today and a very cool Ghost Extended Wheelbase will be used as the Race Director’s car for this year’s show. Next to it, a second Rolls-Royce press car, a Phantom Saloon Series II in beautiful blue velvet sparkle, will also take to the hill.
The Pace Car is finished in a very cool midnight sapphire combined with a silver satin bonnet. As usual the interior is hand-built and features sumptuous hand stitched leathers in creme light and navy blue.
The car is powered by a V12 direct-injection engine mated to an eight speed automatic transmission. To an impressive 563 HP, the Pace Car Ghost is ready to take the hill from 0 to 60 mph in just 5 seconds. Only when needed of course.
The model also comes with double-wishbone front suspension, a multi-link rear suspension and an intelligent, four cornered air-suspension system and electronic variable damping.
