Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II announced for Geneva image

The luxury automaker Rolls-Royce will be introducing the Ghost Series II next week, during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, in a premiere.

Rolls-Royce is getting ready for the 2014th edition of the Geneva Motor Show with the Ghost Series II, as the model in question will be officially presented to the public during the Swiss automotive event, as the carmaker has recently announced. This is a surprise move coming in from Rolls-Royce, which is known to update its models not that often. For example, the Phantom has been in production since 2003 and the Series II arrived in 2012, but the Ghost is being assembled since 2010, and the introduction of the Series II will shorten its life cycle.

It remains unknown for the moment whether the parent company, BMW, will give the new Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II some significant updates or if the model will only receive some visual modifications, made so that it can stand out from a crowd easier. The Rolls-Royce Ghost is currently in production at the Goodwood plant, West Sussex, England, and it’s offered as a four-door sedan, in a front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout. The model has a 6.6L twin turbo V12 unit under its hood, rated at 563 HP (420 kW), mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.
