The upcoming Rolls Royce Ghost has been spotted while undergoing what looks like the final rounds of testing before the car’s official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, this time wearing none of that annoying clunky camouflage. Sales in Europe will begin in later this year and will be followed by U.S. debut sometime in the the second quarter of 2010.

The new Rolls Royce Ghost is powered by a brand new 6.6 Liter turbocharged V12 that produces 563 HP and combined with a ZF 8 speed automatic transmission, the future four door will be able to go from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.7 seconds, that is sports car territory, and reach an electronically limited top speed of 155 MPH.

As Top Speed previously reported, the upcoming Rolls Royce Ghost will feature anintelligent air ride suspension system at all four corners that will be connected to the fully independent front and rear axles which will allow for not only ride height modifications, but comfort settings as well.</p.

Looks like a winner to me as far as luxury, but from the photo it has too much resemblance with the Phantom.

Rolls Royces have never been very reliable, and are complete ripoffs when you can get a faster, more dependable and arguably more modern car for the same price by buying a Bentley. Personally, I’d spend way less money and get an even nicer car - the long-wheelebase Lexus LS 460.

The spec could be close but the performance and the name are still different. Remember that luxury car buyers are nto really into the specs they are aut the intricate features and details that were laid upon on the it not about the speed and specs, after all its the word for luxury...that only those who can afford it market would bite it.

Hey guys, you forget that everything you can touch inside is made by hand and exclusive: you won’t find knobs, buttons... from a C class in it. Beside its the badge that really makes RR that expensive...although the features can be compared to BMW and Benz it does not mean that they are just the same. This is the Ghost noy just your ordinary S600 or 760i baby.

Whattt? Definitely not worth the price. Should be in the range of the S600 or 760i, which i am sure are not $275K. Apart from that, beautiful design. Hope the rear circle brake lights are rubbed off because they make it look cheap, and less RR.

Well just a little observation on the Ghost. I guess while it many look a Phantom, the Rolls-Royce Ghost actually has more in common with BMW’s 750Li. The Ghost features an all-new 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 engine with 400 kW (544 hp) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque, as well as its eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. Despite being Roll-Royce’s entry level model, the Ghost comes in at massive 5399mm (212.6 inches) in length, 3295mm (129.7 inches) in wheelbase, 1948mm (76.7 inches) in width, and 1550mm (61 inches) in height. If you are planning to get this baby ghost prepare your 275, 000 dollars.

This RR Ghost is definetly a scene closer for 2009. We will see its impact once it goes out on sale in Europe late this year and we can test the RR patronship with its buyers. Will they take a good buy of this luxury before the year ends? It would really make a good impression and hopefully it does break the spells of recession in car industry.

Although the launch is nearing we can’t help but still get more excited with this ghost...judging from the picture it seems that there is not much change that was incorporated on this production version from the concept unveiled in Geneva. Unless something is kept hidden from our naked sight!

I guess, the so-called intelligent four corner air suspension system and multi link aluminum front and rear axles of this baby ghost are its best features to make in the market. It is said to be so sensitive that it can even feel who is moving and will automatically compensate weight ghoully for the ghost.

well talking about specs...this baby ghost...most probably not casper’s causin will come fully equipped with its v12 engine, 155 mph, 0-60 at 4.7 sec of course a state of the art interior and the technology that goes with it...who would dare have a second though on this one if you have the money for it?

Uncia  (314) posted on 08.7.2009

Its pretty obvious that the the production model will retain the suicide rear doors and the brushed aluminum bonnet and A- ars that will most likely be offered as an option when sales begin in late 2009. I can’t wait to see the finale.

Just a look at this beauty and you are sure to get that goose bumps under your shoulders...this is so freaking beuatiful, but ofcourse the price could be as shiverring its sight.
