► NEW 2012 Rolls-Royce Phantom 102EX Electric at GENEVA 2011
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars unveils the 102EX, a one-off, fully electric powered
Phantom at the Geneva Motor Show. The car will tour the world during 2011,
serving as a test bed to gather a bank of research data which will be
crucial in informing future decisions on alternative drive-trains for
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

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.
2011 Rolls Royce Ghost Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
Although not entirely "all new" for 2011, the Rolls Royce ghost was
introduced in 2010 as an all new model in the Rolls Royce lineup, the
smaller sibling if you will to the phantom. It boasts it's own unique
variation of styling, but doesn't fall short of borrowing some styling cues
from the phantom. The Ghost also shares the BMW 7 series platform and
contains a lot of the similar telemetrics interfaces as the 7 series making
it quite easy to get the hang of if you're familiar with the systems. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car
while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling
cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it,
start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
Maybach vs. Rolls-Royce
Yes I know some of the slides went too fast just pause it and i also know
that one of the Phantom pictures is an RR coupé. This is my first video
that i made and it's about cars so tell me if you like it and if you do I
will make another one with either Rolls-Royce and Bentley or the biggest
rival Lamborghini and Ferarri. Tell me which one you think is better.

Rolls-Royce Ghost--D&M Motorsports Test Drive Review 2012 Chris Moran
Rolls-Royce Ghost--D&M Motorsports Test Drive Review with Chris Moran.
Presented by D&M Motorsports.
Introduced for model year 2010 as the second all-new Rolls-Royce under
parent company BMW's ownership, the Ghost is a slightly smaller, sleeker
and less-costly alternative to the statelier Phantom. Of course
"less-costly" is a relative term when referring a car that, starting around
$250,000, costs as much as a nice house or condo in many areas of the U.S.
As with the Phantom, the Ghost is a combination of contemporary German
technology and classic British artisanship. The car's spaceframe body and
engine come from Deutschland, while the interior trim and final assembly
continues to hail from England.
We got to spend several days living with the Rolls-Royce Ghost, and truth
be told it made us feel like a media mogul rather than a mere automotive
Unlike the Phantom, which is also available in a "Drophead Coupe"
convertible, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is only offered as a "saloon," as
four-door cars are called in the U.K. It comes wrapped in broad-shouldered
styling that is both formal and aggressive. The automaker's traditional
upright chrome grille caps the front end, flanked by narrow Xenon
headlamps. A tall beltline runs the length of the car with a bit of a curve
to it and meets the gently sloping roofline at a well rounded rear-end
treatment. At a massive 212.6 inches long, the Ghost fit in our garage with
only a few inches to spare.
Wide-opening rear-hinged "suicide" doors make ingress and egress into the
Rolls-Royce Ghost's voluminous rear cabin easier; an electronic lock
prevents these doors from being opened while the car is moving. As the
car's heritage warrants, the Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament resides just
above the front grille. However, in a high-tech nod to the realities of
modern motoring, it automatically retracts into the vehicle when the Ghost
is parked for the sake of security. A cap at the center of each wheel is
engineered to rotate separately so that the "R-R" logo remains upright at
Our tester came in a Claret (i.e maroon) paint treatment with the extra
cost ($5,750) silver satin bonnet (hood) treatment that we found a bit
garish, though it proved to be an attention getter.
Under the Rolls-Royce Ghost's long hood resides a 6.6-liter V12 engine that
generates a generous 563 horsepower and is strong
enough to propel this nearly 5,500-pound vehicle to 60 mph in a claimed 4.7
seconds. All those horses are channeled to the rear wheels via an
eight-speed automatic transmission, and tradition dictates that it's
operated via a column-mounted shift lever. In this case it's BMW's
electronic gear-select system in which you push the lever up for reverse,
down for drive and depress an end button in to put the transmission in
park; it works well enough but half the time we accidentally engaged the
windshield wiper stalk instead. The powertrain delivers smooth and
stunningly quick acceleration on demand, yet remains docile around town so
as not to overpower a driver. The Ghost is rated at meek 13-city/20-highway
mpg fuel economy, which should be of little consequence to a well-heeled
The Rolls-Royce Ghost rides on a sophisticated double wishbone suspension
up front with a multi-link array at the rear and automatic damping
height-adjustable shock absorbers at all four corners. It delivers a smooth
ride yet remains surprisingly tractable through the curves. While the car's
easygoing steering creates a certain disconnected feeling from the road,
hairpin turns and sudden curves didn't seem to unnerve the suspension, with
only a modest amount of stability control intervention coming to the fore
during the most-extreme maneuvers. The car was rock solid and smooth
sailing at highway speeds, with the ability to leap fairly athletically
from one lane to another when called upon. We felt a few bumps and jolts
over pockmarked pavement, due largely we suspect to the standard run-flat
tires (which by nature are stiffer than conventional rubber), but by the
same token the ride is never floaty or bouncy, which will certainly spare
rear-seat riders from ever feeling seasick in this land yacht.
