Rolls-Royce Ghost II makes elegant debut at Geneva

Rolls-Royce has taken the covers off the Ghost Series II and it’s more breathtaking than we could have imagined. This subtle, yet beautiful redesign is an excellent carry on of the Ghost design into a more modern look.

In the photo gallery and video below, you’ll see the Ghost II in all of its glory. It begins with resculpted LED headlights around which daytime running lights circle. The bonnet has a tapered wake channel which begins at the Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament – a must for every Rolls. A stronger stance is evident from heavier bumper and wheel well treatments for the front and chrome inserts on the air intakes set them off with style – these intakes were improved to provide better cooling for the front brakes. Aficionados will note the changed waft line as well.


“As a design statement, Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II continues to transcend time,” comments Giles Taylor, Director of Design for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “This is ensured by the deft treatment of features such as the new headlights, the new wake channel on the bonnet and surfacing that lend the car a more dynamic, purposeful stance and hint at the cutting edge technology inside. I am very pleased with the overall sense of design harmony.”

Much of the interior has been upgraded to include more technology and advanced options for today’s connected world. Despite all of this, however, the luxurious treatments and beautiful refinement still create a sense of comfortable calm.
