2014 Geneva Motor Show LIVE: Rolls Royce Ghost Series II

The 2014 Geneva auto show has been the host for the world premiere of the Rolls Royce Ghost Series II – a pompous name for a little update of the “small” Rolls.

Redesigned LED headlights and daytime running lights are featured up front, while some minor refreshes for the hood surface and the car’s bumpers were made to be sure that you perceive the new ghost even bigger than it actually already is.

The interior is rather technically revised, with improvements to the electronic adjustment of the seats and the addition of on-board Wi-Fi and satellite-aided transmission (SAT) to the navigation system, which now has a 10.25-inch display and a touchpad.

Under the hood there are no refreshes, with Ghost still using the V12- 6.6-liter turbocharged engine that develops 563 bhp (420 kW) and 575 lb-ft (780 Nm). Rolls-Royce also says the engineers tweaked the driver feedback (probably from zero to 1%) and improved the car’s rear stability, ride quality and cornering abilities (wow, it does have such things!).
The beautiful Wraith is also on display, in its untainted form – we know Mansory put under the hood some 740 hp, but that is no excuse for the very poor taste it has when it’s tuning the cars.
