Tuning Firm Spofec May Have Turned The Rolls Royce Ghost Into A Better-Looking Car

Tuning Firm Spofec May Have Turned The Rolls Royce Ghost Into A Better-Looking Car

Novitec’s Rolls Royce Division - Spofec - came up with a classy new Look for the Ghost

Modifying the appearance of high-end cars can lead to controversial results. This, of course, hasn’t stopped tuning companies from engaging in such practices. However, sometimes such companies do it right. The German tuning house Novitec is among them and their Spofec department, which specializes in Rolls Royce vehicles, has just introduced a subtly modified version of the Rolls Royce Ghost, once again.

2021 Rolls Royce Ghost V-12 by Mansory

2021 Rolls Royce Ghost V-12 by Mansory

If Elegance & Refinement isn’t your thing on your Ghost, Mansory can help.

Rolls Royce’s design department hasn’t had much to do in the last two decades. Their designs have certainly stood the test of time with subtle facelifts for their cars. Between 2003 and 2017, there were only two models: the Phantom and the Ghost. There were also coupe and convertible versions, but that was about it.

Fortunately, there has been a renaissance in recent years. Both the Phantom and Ghost were completely redesigned from the ground up, and in keeping with the times, Rolls added an SUV, the Cullinan to their lineup. The new Ghost in particular appears futuristic without losing its traditional appearance, and it is dignified without being overbearing.

2021 Rolls-Royce Dawn And Wraith Black Badge Landspeed Collection

2021 Rolls-Royce Dawn And Wraith Black Badge Landspeed Collection

The two special editions pay tribute to the records set by British engineer Captain George Eyston in Thunderbolt back in the late 1930s

Before World War II sent the world into chaos once again, Captain George Eyston piloted the aero-shaped Thunderbolt record car to not one but two world land-speed records. His first wun on the Bonneville Salts Flats happened on November 19, 1937 where he managed to push the thunderbolt up to a record of 312 mph. Almost a year later, in late-1938, he did it again, only this time he hit 357.5 mph, and that record held through WWII as there were no other land-speed record attempts that that time. The car itself was of significant importance because it was powered by two mighty Rolls-Royce V-12 aircraft engines. Eyston never returned to attempt breaking his record after WWII ended, but Rolls-Royce has found it appropriate to remind the world of his previous records and honor him with special edition cars – one based on the Rolls-Royce Wraith and the other based on the Rolls-Royce Dawn, both in Black Badge trim.

Neither of these cars feature anything like the massive 37-liter, V-12, Rolls-Royce engines that sent Eyston beyond the 300-mph mark way back in the 1930s, but they do feature the brands tried-and-true 6.6-liter V-12. In the Wraith, that engine is good for 623 horsepower and 642 pound-feet of torque while the Dawn Black Badge is good for 593 horsepower and 620 pound-feet of torque. Oddly enough, Rolls-Royce didn’t think it was worth providing any performance upgrades for either of the special edition cars, but there are a few things of not. The interior of both cars feature a special texture that resembles the cracked ground of Bonneville. The starlight headliner in the Wraith was design to mimic the night sky over Bonneville on September 16, 1938 when Eyston made his second land-speed record. Finally, the interior is finished off with silhouettes of the Thunderbolt laser-etched on the front tunnel and the clock has been redesigned to look like the original gauges in the Thunderbolt.

The exterior of these cars are limited to a special two-tone finish, most notably the new “Bonneville Blue” hue designed specifically for these two cars. You’ll find a few bits of yellow and black, which also pay tribute to the old record-setting car. In the end, Rolls-Royce is only making 60 examples of these cars, with production of the Wraith limited to just 35 and the Dawn being even more obscure, with production capped at just 25 examples.

Project Silent Shadow - The Top Secret Rolls-Royce EV Has Been Confirmed

Project Silent Shadow - The Top Secret Rolls-Royce EV Has Been Confirmed

There’s no confirmation for when we’ll see the Rolls-Royce Silent Shadow, but we do know it’s coming

It’s been a few months since we’ve discussed just what Rolls-Royce is going to do as it transitions into the future where electricity must replace fuel, and outside of concept cars like the 2011 Phantom Experiment Electric 102EX and the 2016 Rolls-Royce 103EX Vision 100, the company hasn’t shown us anything of substance. Now, however, Rolls-Royce has confirmed that it is, in fact, developing an EV, and the name is going to sound very familiar.

A Rolls-Royce Phantom With a Supra 2JZ Swap Actually Exists

A Rolls-Royce Phantom With a Supra 2JZ Swap Actually Exists

This 2JZ-powered Rolls Royce Phantom is weirdly cool and unique

In the car world, there are certain things that are considered highly unusual or even taboo. For example, LS-swapping a Ferrari 250 GTO or stancing-out a Bugatti Chiron would be considered a criminal offense by many car enthusiasts. It seems, in Japan, many of these things don’t matter. In fact, Japanese car enthusiasts strongly believe that the more a car reflects the driver’s personality, the better. Edward Skvortsov’s YouTube channel showcases one such car and this one might surprise you with its weirdness.

2021 Rolls-Royce Cullinan by Novitec

The mammoth SUV gets a mean makeover

Novitec is back with a new tuning program, this time for Rolls-Royce’s monolithic SUV, the Cullinan.

The tuning kit is a typical program for the German tuner. It comes with aerodynamic add-ons to go with a modified engine, a new exhaust, and a new set of wheels. The Cullinan looks more aggressive than before, but you have to wonder if "aggression" is part of what makes a Rolls-Royce. Pricing details were not revealed; the cost will depend on what upgrades you include in your cart.

Rolls-Royce's EV Plans Are Starting To Materialize, And There's a Shadowy Secret

Rolls-Royce’s EV Plans Are Starting To Materialize, And There’s a Shadowy Secret

It will be a brand new-model and could be called ‘Silent Shadow’, a play on the Silver Shadow moniker

Just because Rolls-Royce has been tight-lipped about its electrification plans doesn’t mean they don’t have any. At least, that’s what this scoop suggests. According to Autocar, the British automaker is developing a new EV from the ground up rather than plonking an electric powertrain in any of its existing models. A patent for ‘Silent Shadow’ filed late last year further fuels these reports. Will this new model mark the beginning of a new EV era for Rolls-Royce?

2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan - Driven

2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan - Driven

Does A Rolls-Royce SUV have a real place in this world?

From the outside, and to the 99-percenters, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan looks like an over-priced BMW or a reworked Phantom with a taller roof that was designed to keep the brand from falling into the abyss of irrelevant brands. In fact, you might actually be right to some extent. The Cullinan does look a lot like the Phantom in the front thanks to the big rectangular grille, boxy headlights, and square front end. And, the brand is owned by BMW, so yeah, there’s some Bimmer DNA there too. That said, the Cullinan is the very first Rolls-Royce SUV and, outside of that, it also introduced a lot of new tech for the brand, including an off-road driving mode and all-wheel drive. Introduced in 2017, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan has been on the market for a few years now, and it’s been staring down the barrel of the Bentley Bentayga ever since. So, how does is hold up three years in? Well, we spent a week with the Cullinan to find out for ourselves, and this is what you need to know.

Rolls-Royce Is Still Trying To Convince You To Take Your $330,000 Cullinan Off-Road

Rolls-Royce Is Still Trying To Convince You To Take Your $330,000 Cullinan Off-Road

Yeah, we’re pretty sure nobody is really going to take the Cullinan off-road

Rolls-Royce Cullinan needs no introduction. It is the automaker’s first SUV ever and is also the most expensive production SUV in the world, proudly wearing a price tag north of $300,000. When you plonk in so much money on an SUV, taking it for dune bashing is something that wouldn’t even cross your mind. But, that doesn’t mean the Cullinan is not capable of going off the beaten paths, and its latest video seems to send the same message. But, will the owners risk taking it to the desert?

2021 Rolls Royce Ghost Extended

The Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended is almost seven inches longer for improved passenger space

The 2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended is a longer version of the second-generation Ghost, unveiled in 2020. Around 6.7 inches longer than the standard Ghost, the Ghost Extended basically features a longer wheelbase, which translates into greater space and legroom for rear-seat passengers.

Designed for customers who want to be driven by a chauffeur, the Ghost Extended shares underpinnings, design features, and technologies with the regular-wheelbase Ghost sedan. Let’s find out more about the 2021 Ghost Extended in the review below.

Rolls-Royce Customers Don't Want EVs Because It Requires Effort to Plug Them In

Rolls-Royce Customers Don’t Want EVs Because It Requires Effort to Plug Them In

Apparently, Plugging In A Car Doesn’t Fit the “Rolls-Royce Experience”

Rolls-Royce is, quite literally, one of the last automakers to make the step forward into electrification. The company doesn’t do hybrids and, so far, has been rather mute about its intentions to go electric anytime soon. When you serve up $300,000 cars at the entry-level, things are a little different for you, but that doesn’t mean you can avoid change forever. A new report has shed some light on why Rolls-Royce has avoided change so far, what the brand’s take on hybridization is, and just when we’ll finally see it venture into the world of EVs.

2021 Rolls Royce Ghost

The second-generation Ghost is a slightly smaller Phantom with the same opulent features

The 2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost is the second-generation of the company’s luxury full-size sedan. Developed to replace an 11-year-old model, the 2021 Ghost features an in-house aluminum spaceframe and a new, slightly larger V-12 engine. The luxury sedan remains familiar on the outside, as the design is an evolution of the old model, but it boasts an all-new interior with state-of-the-art technology. Let’s find out more about it in the review below.

The Rolls-Royce Ghost Returns With Evolutionary Styling and A New V-12 Engine

The Rolls-Royce Ghost Returns With Evolutionary Styling and A New V-12 Engine

The New Rolls-Royce Ghost Has Some Phantom DNA

While most carmakers keep their vehicles on the market for five to seven years per generation, Rolls-Royce doesn’t redesign its nameplates unless they get close to or even surpass the 10-year mark. The old Phantom survived for an impressive 14 years, while the outgoing Ghost is now in its 11th year in showrooms. Come 2020, and the full-size model was finally redesigned to join the newer Phantom and the Cullinan, the brand’s first-ever SUV. Just like the Phantom, the new-generation Ghost remains familiar on the outside, but it brings a new platform, engine, technology, and a more comfortable interior to the table.

This Rendering Could Preview That Weird, Rolls-Royce Shooting Brake

This Rendering Could Preview That Weird, Rolls-Royce Shooting Brake

If Rolls-Royce is building a shooting brake, it should look like this

Earlier this week, someone spotted a rather weird looking Rolls-Royce prototype on public roads. Hidden under camouflage, it looked familiar up front, but the rear end looked more like a hearse or a really boxy wagon model. It also appeared to have beefier wheel arches. The spy video sparked rumors that Rolls-Royce may be building a new one-off model, and some went ahead and rendered a shooting brake version of the Wraith. And it looks surprisingly cool.

2020 Rolls Royce Cullinan Black Badge

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan joins the Black Badge family with more power and dark bling

The 2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge is a version of the Cullinan, the British company’s first-ever SUV. Designed for "younger, more adventurous clients," the Black Badge is basically a package that adds darker trim on the outside and extra, unique features on the inside. It also comes with extra power and torque, so it can also be considered a higher performance version of the standard Cullinan. The SUV is the fourth Rolls-Royce available with the Black Badge treatment, following the Wraith and Ghost in 2016 and the Dawn in 2017. Let’s find out what makes it special in the review below.

The First Electric Rolls Royce Has Arrived Thanks to Lunaz

For what it’s worth, the Rolls Royce still maintains its exclusivity and reeks of retro, luxurious vibes

Electrification has taken over almost every brand and every segment. The very few that are left are now on the verge of going through the same process. One of those few brands left untouched was Rolls Royce, but not anymore. Lunaz, a U.K.-based tuning and conversion company has laid its hands on a 1961 Phantom V and given it the electrified treatment. Lunaz will be building just 30 iterations, but is restoring a classic car like this one in an electric avatar a true celebration?

The New Rolls-Royce Ghost Takes Sound-Proofing To the Next Level

Now you can enjoy the Ghost’s interior without worrying about outside noise ruining your mood

The next-generation Rolls-Royce Ghost is scheduled to arrive later this year, and Rolls-Royce is pulling out all the stops to ensure that it lives up to all the hype of being a completely new model from the ground up.

Part of that challenge involves creating new features to improve the ownership experience of the Ghost, including ensuring complete serenity in the luxury ride’s interior. On that end, Rolls-Royce is fitting more than 220 pounds (100 kilos) of sound-absorbing materials throughout the body of the all-new Ghost.

2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan Overdose By Novitec

2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan Overdose By Novitec

This audacious Cullinan is the overdose that Rolls-Royce didn’t dare to offer

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan seems to be a favorite among tuners lately. A few months back, Mansory gave it a twist, and now Novitec has laid its hands on one example.

The aftermarket company calls it the Cullinan Overdose. Befitting of its name, the company has given the Cullinan a lot of treatment on the outside. Novitec has tweaked the engine as well to offer a lot more power than it does in the standard form. With its widebody kit and lowered ride height, does it look as exquisite as the standard Cullinan?
