Rolls-Royce had revealed the details and a few pictures of the 2013 Rolls-Royce Ghost and then it removed its traces from the corporate site. The internet is quite infamy for not keeping the secret and the same goes with the Ghost also. There are few hints about the upcoming model with few updates.
The upcoming model has been inspired from the Ghost Six Sense concept which was first revealed at the Beijing Motor Show. The cross banded wood surfaces, natural grain leather and high range exciter speakers have been imported directly from the concept. The vehicle also supports new alloy wheels but the single photo doesn’t reveal if it is the same that was used in the concept. Another feature called Comfort Access was not displayed at the Beijing but has been installed in the car, which allows the user to open the rear trunk just by waving his foot down the rear bumper. It is the first Rolls-Royce to feature this option.
The features are not the only thing that has seen an upgrade. The price has also been upgraded by $7,050 to $260,750. The main cause of the price rise is the gas-guzzler tax which was raised from $1,700 to $2,100 due to the new EPA calculations that defines the fuel economy. The Ghost delivers about 13 miles per gallon in city and about 21 miles per gallon on highways.
The extended wheel base model has also seen a step hike from $293,700 to $300,000.
