► Rolls Royce Ghost INTERIOR
Powered by a new twin turbo 6.6-litre
V12 engine, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is virtually silent, with 80% of its
torque available from idle. Coupled with the 8-speed ZF gearbox, it
accelerates from 0-62 mph in just 4.9 seconds and has a governed top-speed
Ghost is the essence of Rolls-Royce in its simplest, purest form. Every
inch delivers on the power of simplicity. The classic Rolls-Royce
proportions are all present and correct: the 2:1 ratio of the height of the
wheels to the height of the body; the long wheelbase and bonnet; the short
overhang at the front and long overhang at the rear.
Car Tour -- Rolls-Royce Ghost (2011)
In-depth tour of a 2011 Rolls-Royce Ghost, giving you an opportunity to see
and learn about the majority of exterior and interior features that make
this the more driver-oriented model of the Rolls-Royce family.
This video was improvised (i.e. no script), so please excuse the occasional
fumble for words. As someone who's logged 1000s of miles with RRs and BMWs
you'll have to excuse my many references to both cars, but the Ghost does
borrow a lot from the BMW 7-series. I may make a video of my Alpina B7 in
the future just to underline the similarity of their interior features.
Maybach 62 Test Drive (And Ride!) with Chris Moran
An in-depth review of the 2005 Maybach 62 with Chris Moran
Maybach was one of the world's most exquisite nameplates in the 1920s and
'30s. The original company was founded by Karl Maybach — the son of
Wilhelm Maybach, who developed the first Mercedes.
Some people were surprised when Maybachs returned in the form of two
closely related, all-new ultraluxury sedans. Each posh sedan is filled with
nearly every sort of comfort and convenience feature offered in a motorcar.
Ostensibly a product of DaimlerChrysler, Mercedes-Benz's parent company,
the modern-day Maybach is actually considered a make of its own.
Maybachs come in two sizes: the regular Type 57 and the extended-length
Type 62. Each model designation indicates the car's length in meters: 5.73
for the Type 57 and 6.17 for the Type 62. Special features include
electronic braking and an Airmatic Dual Control air suspension.
A rearview parking-assist camera is available in the 2005 model. Standard
equipment now includes Robbe & Berking beverage flutes and a handcrafted
Dunhill Collection umbrella. Standard Sirius Satellite Radio includes a
Only one or two Maybachs per day are built at a state-of-the-art facility
in Germany. Mercedes-Benz dealers must sign separate agreements to sell
According to the manufacturer, Maybach styling balances classic and
avant-garde features. The doors, hood and fenders are made of aluminum.
Maybach says a primary goal was to deliver an "entirely new definition of
Twelve body colors are available, and two-tone paint schemes may be
specified. Bi-xenon headlights are standard. The regular-size Type 57 is
225.3 inches long overall, uses a 133.5-inch wheelbase and rides on 19-inch
tires. A standard power-closing feature pulls the door shut from the first
As many as 100 items inside the Maybach are trimmed with exotic woods.
Buyers can mix options with the immense standard-equipment list in numerous
combinations. Available accessories include a luggage set, a sterling
silver champagne goblet, a humidor, a golf bag and a fluffy travel rug.
Buyers may choose from six Grand Nappa leather colors and three types of
wood. All four standard seats are heated, and active seat ventilation is
Occupants can luxuriate in reclining rear seats. A television with a
9.5-inch TFT flat screen includes a DVD player. Interior features also
include four-zone climate control with two air-conditioning units, a
refrigerated compartment, a cordless phone with two handsets and a
21-speaker Bose Dolby sound system. Each sedan also has the Tele Aid
emergency communication system and the Comand integrated control system,
which are available for Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
Under the Hood
Breathing with the assistance of twin turbochargers, the 5.5-liter V-12 produces 550 horsepower and 663
pounds-feet of torque. It teams with a five-speed-automatic transmission.
Maybach claims the Type 57 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 5.2
Ten airbags, including two adaptive front airbags, four side-impact
airbags, and front and rear side curtain-type airbags, are installed.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom is a saloon automobile made in England by
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, a BMW subsidiary. It was launched in 2003 and 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. It also won the Top Gear Car of the Year Award for 2003.
Customers can choose from 44,000 paint colours, and specify any leather
Car has a power reserve dial indicating how much of the engine's power
is left available to the driver. This is to provide a sense of tremendous
power in reserve, and to hide "crude" underlying mechanicals from its
owners. The instrument cluster is not shared with any other vehicle. Doors
are remote operated.
The rear doors are rear-hinged, a style commonly referred to as suicide
doors, but called 'coach doors' by Rolls-Royce. Because of the rear-seating
position in relation to the rear inner-door handles, buttons are mounted on
both C-pillars which operate hydraulic motors in order to close the rear
doors. An electronic lock prevents the doors from being accidentally opened
when moving. The car will automatically brake to a walking speed if a coach
door remains open when driving off. The rear doors also house umbrellas
that are stored within the doors, and can only be accessed when the front
or rear doors are open. The fabric of the umbrella is coated with Teflon to
assist in shedding water when the wet umbrella is stored within the door.
The traditional Spirit of Ecstasy ornament has an automatic electronic
retraction mechanism to prevent theft and protect pedestrians in the event
of an accident. It may also be retracted by the driver at the touch of a
button, and retracted when the alarm is armed. The base contains a sensor
which detects movement, and will retract if tampered with.
The 'RR' logos on each of the wheel hubs are independent bezels in
order to always remain upright while the wheel is rotating.
Inside The Rolls Royce Ghost
I had the oportunity to get into this brand new Rolls Royce Ghost during
the inauguration of Neubauer's new car dealers (including Lamborghini,
Jaguar and McLaren). The comfort is supreme and the silence is gold. The
smell from the leather is not agressive like in new cars but smells so good
and smooth. I especially like the button to close the door and the umbrella
in the door. Enjoy !
2012 Rolls Royce Factory in Goodwood - Test-e Finish
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars
BUSINESS MINISTER WELCOMES ROLLS-ROYCE INVESTMENT
Goodwood, 13 December 2011
Mark Prisk, Business Minister, visited the Home of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars
in Goodwood, West Sussex to learn how the company will expand in 2012.
Rolls-Royce is investing in a significant expansion of its Assembly Hall
and Surface Finish Centre. The Minister toured the manufacturing plant to
meet the craftsmen and women responsible for building the company's super
luxury cars. The Minister unveiled a commemorative banner to signify the
start of construction.
Mark Prisk said, "I am delighted to have been invited to the start of the
building expansion programme at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. The company's
hand-built luxury models are flag bearers for British manufacturing and we
should join Rolls-Royce in celebrating this great British success story."
The news follows significant growth in Rolls-Royce sales over the last 18
months and a greater demand from customers for highly personalised Ghost
and Phantom models. The expansion includes an increase of more than 2,500
square metres for the Assembly Hall, completing the final phase of
development from original site plans for the production area. A new
extension will also increase the Surface Finish Centre by about 1,000
"I am delighted to host Mark Prisk at the Home of Rolls-Royce and to
discuss our expansion plans," said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive
Officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. "We are extremely proud of our
achievements and Rolls-Royces are rightly lauded as "the best cars in the
world" by press and customers. Our investment demonstrates confidence in
this unique brand, our Rolls-Royce Motor Cars commitment to our Home at
Goodwood -- the only place in the world where Rolls-Royce motor cars are
built -- and signals the next phase in the development of our company."
The new space, and a number of additional infrastructure changes, will
allow the company's manufacturing and Bespoke operation to expand. This
year, Rolls-Royce has seen a considerable increase in demand for
personalised Bespoke models, and the company recently announced a doubling
in the number of Bespoke experts throughout the business.
Construction work is planned to commence early in 2012 and will take around
nine months to complete.
