Rolls-Royce Ghost series II unveiled at new York motor show

The Rolls-Royce Ghost series II is a “discreet and considered update of this iconic car’s exterior appearance”. If any other automobile manufacturer did something similar, it would be called a ‘facelift’ but this is Rolls-Royce. 
The Ghost was launched in 2009 billed as the ‘baby Rolls-Royce’ and designed to nestle below the imperious Phantom in the famous British brand’s small but ultra-exclusive model range. By offering the Rolls-Royce experience for ‘only’ £200,000, the more compact Ghost has been a major driving force behind the brand’s recent growth and its manufacturer chose the 2014 new York motor show to reveal a comprehensively refreshed version of the luxury saloon to keep that momentum going.

The changes are subtle as you might expect. new daytime running lights adorn the LED headlights at the front above re-sculpted bumpers designed to produce a wider, sportier look. The bonnet has also been tweaked with a strong “wake channel” running from the iconic Spirit of Ecstasy statute back to the base of the windscreen. more paint and wheel options increase the mind-boggling personalisation potential of the car.
Inside, the Ghost’s all-encompassing front seats now have extra electrical adjustments and the rear seats have been rearranged so it’s that bit easier to hold a civilised conversation in the back. Tweaks to the stunning central dashboard clock will go unnoticed by all but the biggest Roll-Royce aficionados, or those in possession of the press release, and there’s yet more ways to boost the incredible amount of wood and leather on show via the options list.
