The wait is over. Rolls-Royce has officially debuted the all-new 2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost. This new Ghost model results from years of testing and development to meet the highest drivability, comfort, luxury, and style standards. The new Rolls-Royce Ghost is powered by a twin-turbo 6.75-liter V12 engine producing 563 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. It uses an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission to send that power to an all-wheel-drive system. The Ghost also features all-wheel steering to handle its torque, which is delivered at 1,600 RPM. This 2021 Ghost is near four-inches longer than the outgoing model. Even with a big V12 engine, it retains a 50/50 weight distribution.
New technology featured in the 2021 Ghost is an evolved version of Rolls-Royce’s double-wishbone Magic Carpet Ride suspension designed to keep the car level while driving over road imperfections using self-leveling and high-volume air suspension technology. It also uses a “flagbearer” front-mounted camera that scans the road ahead and warns the suspension to make the necessary adjustments to ensure the smoothest ride. The car uses a satellite aided transmission system using GPS data to inform the Ghost’s transmission to pre-select the best gear for the upcoming turns. This car spends the entire trip scanning the roads ahead to deliver the ultimate ride-quality, and we expect no less from Rolls-Royce.
