2018 Rolls Royce Phantom [Spy Shots]

Published by on Aug 13th, 2014, No Comments


Whenever we hear the words Rolls Royce and spy shot in the same sentence, get excited. And if said spy shots happen to be of the long overdue, heavily anticipated new Phantom, all the better.

Motor Authority has gotten their hands on some pretty special spy shots of the 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom – and by the looks of things, the new model will be very bit as perfect as the current model.

One has to keep in mind that the current Phantom model has been on the market since 2004 – that’s 10 years ago. So when we say the Phantom is long overdue for an upgrade, we mean (really) long overdue. Not that there is anything wrong with the current model (it still makes our heart skip a beat) but a lot has happened in the past 10 years, especially technology wise.

This test model was spotted outside a BMW test centre in Germany, and, as we can gather, Rolls Royce has started with their first public road tests with the new Phantom. (more…)

Published by on Mar 2nd, 2010, No Comments

If one gets to witness a Rolls Royce Ghost finished in a gold and blue varnish in Geneva, there is no reason to pack ones bag until the event gets over. Yes it may be too loud a color combination, but the Mansory Royce on display in Geneva seems to endure the appearance with ease, leaving gazers awestruck.

Mansory Rolls Royce Ghost 1

Mansory Rolls Royce Ghost has Blue covering almost the entire bodywork while gold is found at places like the grille, front wheel houses and even the door handles. The Mansory Ghost is a better performer than the customary one thanks to the addition of a new rear spoiler, a rear skirt, a rear diffuser and the double sport exhaust system. The unusually tinged Ghost churns a stunning 710 ponies at 5,850 rpm with up to 1,020 Nm of torque courtesy of-ECU calibration, twin turbos, a sports manifold and sports catalysers.

Rolls-Royce Ghost Numero Uno by Deutsche Manufaktur

Rich enough to own one of those amazing Rolls-Royce Ghost? Well, listen up, as the German tuners from Deutsche Manufaktur have put their “Numero Uno” version of the car, on sale on for €450,000. Meant for “customers who want something a little more exclusive from an automobile that spells passion even in its original state”, their Rolls-Royce Ghost ‘Numero Uno’ look a bit unusual (appealing unusual that is) thanks to its new front and rear spoilers, a new grille and the new headlight shades. More to it, the little beast comes with adjustable-tint glass (darkened windows at the push of a button), 20-inch forged and polished wheels and a few other interior changes. Not bad for the filthy rich, eh?

2010 Rolls Royce Ghost

Published by on Sep 7th, 2009, No Comments

Remember the Rolls Royce 200EX Concept which was unearthed at the Geneva Motor Show? Well, even if you don’t here is the production ready model of the luxury salon and it is now dubbed the 2010 Rolls Royce Ghost. Following the Rolls Royce style, there is a large sloping grille at the front end (resembling a jet intake) with Xenon headlights. At the back you primarily find, LED taillights and chrome exhaust tips (optional). Just to give it a distinctive look on the streets it has been finished in a contrasting Silver Satin paint finish.


When it’s a Royce, luxury is the biggest factor and so it is here with evidences like the abundance of leather on the inside assisted with chrome detailing. Again, the trademark violin key switches are also here along with frosted instrument dials and abundant wood trimming. The air-conditioning inside this luxury on four wheels hits you from four different sides. On popping the hood you will find a 6.6-liter turbocharged V12 beast capable of churning 563bhp and 780Nm of torque. The amazing power is mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. The deadly combination helps the car dash from 0 to 100km/h in 4.9 seconds while topping it out at 250 Km/h which is electronically limited.

I don’t particularly like the rear, but overall it looks like an impressive ride. One that we would like to take for a test drive! Eh?
