Rolls Royce GHOST from Russia
⇩⇩⇩⇩⇩⇩ All the info on this video can be found here
Hey! This is my first Rolls Royce Ghost video, and my first one in the wild
(Monaco, of course)! I couldn't have found a better one myself: pure white
and with nice russian plates (filled with 8s). You can see it driving
around and then a detailed walkaround of the 480,000 euros jewel. I know
you saw that LP640, but that's for later hehe! Back to the RRR (Russian
Rolls Royce) : the owner kept driving it around Monaco all the time,
however I only managed to get that little glimpse of footage you see in the
video, around the casino! :)

Rolls-Royce Phantom - DOCUMENTARY
The Rolls-Royce Phantom is a saloon automobile made in England by
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, a BMW subsidiary. The convertible is known as the
Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé. The Drophead Coupé was launched in
2007 and the saloon was launched in 2003 and it is the first model
introduced during the BMW era. The Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé, and
the Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupé, are both based on the 2003 Phantom. -

Phantom Series II launch
Launched at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the Phantom Series II brings
contemporary yet timeless design updates to the Phantom Saloon, Phantom
Drophead Coupé and Phantom Coupé. Featuring improvements to the
drive-train, ease-of-use and connectivity, the models are also the first
production cars to feature full LED headlamps as standard -- proving the
maxim of founder Sir Henry Royce that you should strive to "take the best
that exists and make it better".
1200HP Bugatti Veyron Super Sport 'Pur Blanc' + Mansory Rolls Royce Drophead!
Last year I visited the Pebbe Beach Car Week in Monterey, California.
During my stay I´ve recorded these 3 amazing trio: a 1 of 1 1200HP Bugatti
Veyron Super Sport ´Pur
Blanc´, a white 600HP Mansory Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe and a
modified Rolls Royce Ghost! This is absolute insane!

How To Drift A Rolls Royce
I had the opportunity to drift a Rolls Royce Ghost during an event that was
being put on with several Ferrari owners. I was asked by Rolls Royce of NA
if i could drift the Ghost to put on a show for the group. The video was
taped by a friend who was watching. I was afforded no practice runs before
the demonstration, and this was my first time driving a Rolls Royce Ghost.
The car drives fantastic for its size and weight. It was one of the most
fun experiences I've had driving a car. I put the video together with
background music because there really wasn't much to hear. The car runs so
quiet, you couldn't hear engine noise. And the tire screech was just that,
tire screech, not too impressive.
In the video, the first full slide through the corner was just that, my
first attempt. Then at the end of the video is part of my second attempt. I
only did these two passes, then we parked it.
The approach speed to the corner was roughly 75mph, I know, it doesn't look
like it, but it was. To initiate the drift all it took was heavy braking,
this took some of the speed off, and transferred weight to the front of the
car, taking it off the rear tires making it easier to spin. Them. An
aggressive turn of the steering wheel to the left, about 1/4 turn, and put
the throttle to the floor and she started to slide. Steer the steering
wheel to the right to catch the slide, eyes ahead, foot to the floor and
ride it out. At the end of the video you will see, if you watch closely,
that I actually threw the car into the next right hand turn too :-) but it
was out of video range.
Enjoy the video

ROLLS ROYCE merlins
In 1936, the Air Ministry had a requirement for a new fighter aircraft with
airspeeds that would eventually have to be over 300 mph (480 km/h).
Fortunately, two designs had been developed entirely as private venture
exercises: the Hawker Hurricane and Supermarine Spitfire. Both were
designed around the PV-12 instead of the Kestrel, and were the only British
modern fighters to have been so developed. Production contracts for both
aircraft were let in 1936. The PV-12 was instantly catapulted to the top of
the supply chain and became the Merlin.
Early Merlins were considered to be rather unreliable, but Rolls soon
introduced a superb reliability-improvement programme to improve matters.
This consisted of taking random engines from the end of assembly line and
running them continuously at full power until they failed. Each was then
dismantled to find out which part had failed, and that part was redesigned
to be stronger. After two years of this, the Merlin had matured into one of
the most reliable aero engines in the world, and could be run at full power
for eight-hour bombing missions with no problems.
As it turned out, the Peregrine saw use in only two aircraft, the Westland
Whirlwind and the Gloster F9/37. Although the Peregrine appeared to be a
satisfactory design, it was never allowed to mature; Rolls-Royce's priority
was troubleshooting the Merlin. The Vulture was fitted to the Hawker
Tornado and Avro Manchester, but proved unreliable owing to big-end
failures caused by lubrication problems. With the Merlin itself soon
pushing into the 1,500 hp (1,100 kW) range, the Peregrine and Vulture were
both cancelled in 1943. upgrades to the Merlin were the result of
ever-increasing octane ratings in the aviation fuel available from the US,
and ever more efficient Supercharger
designs. At the start of the war the engine ran on the then-standard 87
octane aviation spirit and
The next major version was the XX which ran on 100 octane fuel. This
allowed it to be run at higher manifold pressures, which were achieved by
increasing the "Boost" from the
centrifugal type Supercharger. The
result was that the otherwise similar engine delivered 1,300 hp (970 kW).
The process continued, with later versions running on further-increased
octane ratings, delivering higher and higher power ratings. By the end of
the war the "little" engine was delivering over 1,600 hp (1,200 kW) in
common versions, and as much as 2,070 hp (1,544 kW) in the Merlin 130/131
versions used on the de Havilland Hornet. The Merlin was running on 150
Octane fuel by the time it was used in the Lancaster bomber. This high
octane rating was achieved by large quantities of lead anti-knocking agent,
so much in fact, that the engine cowlings around the Exhaust outlets were usually heavily stained
with it. It had to be regularly removed for aerodynamic, not to mention
The Merlin's lack of direct fuel injection meant that both Spitfires and
Hurricanes were, unlike the contemporary Bf-109E, unable to nose down into
a deep dive. This meant the Luftwaffe fighters could 'bunt' into a
high-power dive to escape attack, leaving the Spitfire spluttering behind
as its fuel was forced by negative 'g' out of the carburettor. RAF fighter
pilots soon learned to 'half-roll' their aircraft before diving to pursue
their opponents. The use of uninjected carburettors was calculated to give
a higher specific power output, due to the lower temperature, and hence the
greater density, of the fuel/air mixture, compared to injected systems.
"Miss Shilling's orifice" (invented in March 1941 by a female engineer
named Shilling), a holed diaphragm fitted across the float chambers, went
some way towards curing the fuel starvation in a dive. Further improvements
were introduced throughout the Merlins, with injection introduced in 1943.
Rolls-Royce 102EX Phantom Experimental Electric revealed
On 1 and 2 March, the Rolls-Royce stand will also debut 102EX, a one-off,
fully electric powered Phantom that will serve as a test bed to gather a
bank of owner research in 2011. This will be crucial in informing future
decisions on alternative drive-trains for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
102EX will undertake a global test programme that takes in Europe, the
Middle East, Asia and North America. Through test drives, owners will be
given the opportunity to experience an alternative drive-train technology
and to feed back their experiences, thoughts and concerns directly to
There are no plans to develop a production variant, but Geneva will start a
dialogue with existing owners and stakeholders, posing as well as answering
questions of its audience. Comments will be collated through the web portal
www.electricluxury.com that will also chart the car's progress on tour
throughout the year.
