After going through all the spy shots, leaked videos, and teaser images for a long time, Rolls-Royce Ghost from the British Carmakers has been released for 2010. It was introduced at the 2009 Frankfurt auto show after much anticipation.
The 2010 version of Rolls Royce Ghost is introduced with 16 inches decrease in the length than the flagship Phantom. Its engine is 700 pounds heavier than the new V-12-powered BMW 760Li. This vehicle is powered by a direct-injected, twin-turbocharged, 6.6 liter V-12 engine, which can churn out 575 pound-feet of torque at 1500 rpm and 563 horsepower. This engine can accelerate the vehicle within 4.8 seconds to hit a speed of 60 miles per hour speed. This impressive speed-up is because of connection of ZF-derived eight-speed automatic gearbox to the engine. With this engine, the combined fuel economy of this vehicle is 21 miles per gallon.
The 2010 version of Rolls Royce Ghost is designed with a massive rear 15.8-inch brakes and 16.1-inch front brakes. The vehicle is embedded with an anti-roll stabilization, dynamic stability control, dynamic brake control, traction control, active brake intervention, cornering brake control adaptive cruise control with stop & go, and curve speed limiter. The last four features function together to control the vehicle’s stability and speed correctly when the cruise control is activated.
