First it was a rumor, and now it looks to be a reality, but the engine choice seems counter to where they were supposedly going. Rolls Royce, makers of cars for the old money and landed gentry for the longest time, has decided to make what amounts to an “entry level” or baby Roller – or at the very least a smaller ride. Nothing really wrong with that. And on the face of it, there’s nothing wrong with mounting a twin-turbo V12 into a car, any car. But isn’t this supposed to be the “baby” of the line up?
Rolls Royce let some details about the upcoming and all-new Ghost, which a lot of people are saying will be the first “driver-orientated” Roller in quite a while. The Ghost was first publicized at the 2006 Paris Motor Show and then previewed at this year’s Geneva Show, and is aimed to compete head on with Bentley’s Continental Flying Spur.
