The Rolls-Royce Ghost usually isn’t the type of vehicle Novitec turns its attention to. It’s not a Ferrari; it’s not a Maserati; and last I checked, it’s not a Lamborghini either. But the Novitec Group now has a new tuning arm devoted exclusively to Rolls-Royce models. This new tuning arm is called Novitec Sporfec, which shouldn’t be confused with Novitec Rosso (Ferrari), Novitec Tridente (Maserati), and Novitec Torado (Lamborghini). It’s relatively new compared to the others, so it’s easy to see why some people were surprised to see this Rolls-Royce Ghost program.

Admittedly, I was one of those people but once my own surprise wore off, I looked a little closer at the new Ghost program and realized that Novitec Sporfec isn’t all that different from its brothers. For one, it goes to great lengths to develop in-house technology for its programs. It also uses these advancements to develop unique programs that provides across-the-board improvements on the vehicles it works on.

The Rolls-Royce Ghost is a perfect example of that. The list of upgrades are comprehensive with new components for every element of the British luxury sedan. This meticulous attention-to-detail has earned Novitec our praise in the past. With this new Sporfec division for Rolls-Royce models, I can’t see that changing anytime soon.

Behind the wheels is a high-performance brake system with ventilated carbon-ceramic brake discs.

Novitec Sporfec installed a handful of new aerodynamic components on the Ghost. No surprises there. A quick look at the photos and you’ll notice that the British luxury sedan has been upgraded with a new front bumper, side panels, a three-piece rear bumper, and a rear lip spoiler. Each of these components are made from carbon fiber, further accentuating the elegance and luxurious status of the rollin’ Rolls-Royce.

Novitec Sporfec is offering a special set of wheels and tires that are sure to liven up the Rolls-Royce Ghost. Each of these wheels measure 22 inches, which are massive by any stretch of the imagination. But there is more to these wheels than just about their size; they also offer customers plenty of finishes, including silver, matte black, black with a polished surface, and titanium.

Behind the wheels is a high-performance brake system with ventilated carbon-ceramic brake discs. These brakes become extra handy when the Ghost is flexing its new-found power out on the road.

Speaking of new-found power, engine upgrades are always at the heart of any Novitec program and the Rolls-Royce Ghost is no different. In this instance, the tuning firm used its own SPOFEC N-TRONIC kit to give the Ghost huge improvements in output and performance. The processor-controlled device connects to the Ghost’s original engine management unit, creating a significant power increase for both the Ghost and the Ghost V Specification.

As far as the Ghost V-Specification is concerned, Novitec’s new engine kit allows for power to increase to 709 horsepower and 718 pound-feet of torque.

With the SPOFEC N-TRONIC kit in tow, the standard Ghost will put down 685 horsepower and 706 pound-feet of torque, much better than the standard 563-horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque coming out of the sedan’s stock, 6.6-liter, V-12 engine.

As far as the Ghost V-Specification is concerned, Novitec’s new engine kit allows for power to increase to 709 horsepower and 718 pound-feet of torque. Again, that’s leaps better than the Ghost V-Specification’s standard output of 593 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque.

With these changes, the Ghost and the Ghost V-Specification will see their 0-to-60-mph times drop from 4.7 seconds to 4.5 and 4.4 seconds, respectively. No mention of any top-speed increase, so it’s probably safe to assume that it will remain at 155 mph.

The last upgrade to the Rolls-Royce Ghost is SPOFEC’s suspension control module CAN-Tronic, allowing the luxury sedan to lower its ride height by 40 mm (1.6 inches) at speeds below 87 mph. Anytime the Ghost travels faster than that, the body automatically goes back to its original ride height.
