Rolls Royce Germany unveiled a special edition Ghost that it developed in cooperation with Procar Automobile and named V-Specification. If you thought that this is just another special car that offers just some exterior and interior updates, you are wrong. The new Ghost V-Specification also comes with some significant engine upgrades.
The Ghost V-Specification is powered by a 6.6-liter, twin-turbo V-12 engine that delivers a total of 593 horsepower — an increase of 30 horsepower over the base 563 horsepower. Unfortunately, this added power does not lower the Ghost’s 0-to-60 mph time any, as it remains at 4.7 seconds.
The new Rolls Royce Ghost V-Specification will be available for order only between January and June of 2014, and along with the power upgrades, it will also offer some exterior and interior updates. The model is priced at €330,820 — about $450,000 at the current exchange rates.

Rolls Royce Ghost V-Spec in Detail
The Ghost V-Specification is available in five exclusive colors — Graphite, Black Sapphire, Black Kirsch, Arctic White and Infinity Black — on top of the other colors offered for the Ghost lineup.
The new Ghost V-Specification will also feature a hand-painted coachline, which artfully incorporates the V-Specification motif.
The Ghost V-Specification rides on 21-inch part-polished wheels that offer the car a bold and powerful stance.
The interior will be updated with special V-Specification logo embroidered into the rear armrest and inlaid in stainless steel on the veneer that houses the entertainment system. Other updates include contrast piping and stitching, and a custom-made clock face.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is delighted to announce the launch of Ghost V-Specification; a limited series of Ghost and Ghost Extended Wheelbase motor cars that will be available for customers to commission from January to June 2014.
“This limited series celebrates one of Ghost’s defining characteristics; the exquisite 6.6 litre Rolls-Royce V12 engine,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “Since its introduction in 2009, an extraordinary marriage of assured presence and remarkable driving dynamics has endeared Ghost to a new generation of highly discerning businessmen and women, ensuring the car’s position as the statement of choice for a growing band of successful entrepreneurs around the world.”
At the heart of the Ghost’s driving experience is its hallmark V12 engine. Acceleration is delivered with a characteristic immediacy and smoothness, propelling occupants from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds with 80% of power available from idle. This unique powertrain is celebrated with a 30bhp / 22kw power increase on all Ghost V-Specification motor cars.
Elegantly applied design touches hint at Ghost V-Specification’s inherent dynamism.
V-Specification motif coachlines finish the exterior paint-scheme whilst customers can either choose from five specially selected exterior colours, or from Rolls-Royce’s 44,000 hue palette. Optional visible chrome exhausts and 21” part-polished wheels add further expression to the car’s dynamic promise.
The V-Specification motif is echoed around the car’s handcrafted interior through engraving to the treadplates, embroidery to the rear armrest and hand-applied steel inlays to the front multimedia screen lid. The interior is completed with an exclusively designed clock with a black crown surrounding the face.
