Some historians claim it’s a myth that Rolls-Royce ever described the power output of its models with a dismissive, understated word: ‘adequate’. True or not, in these more fact-hungry times we are permitted to know that the new V-Specification offers a 30bhp/22kW power increase, endowing this limited edition Rolls-Royce Ghost with 593bhp.

The V-Specification is offered with a choice of five unique exterior finishes and features a number of distinctive design enhancements.

Overview

Rolls-Royce Ghost V-Specification

Rolls-Royce would never describe their cars as ‘sporty’ but do concede that the Ghost is the most driver-oriented four-door they make. The V-Specification turns up the dial a couple of extra graduations, not just because of the extra power but also through the design enhancements. Outside, you’ll notice the 21” part-polished five-spoke wheels and the V-Specification motif incorporated within the coachlines. Five special finishes are offered: Graphite, Black Sapphire, Black Kirsch, Arctic White and Infinity Black. Alternatively, any shade from a palette of over 44,000 colours can be specified as a cost option, as can visible chrome exhausts.

Inside, you enter the cabin over V-Specification treadplates; the same design signature also appears on the rear armrest and as a stainless steel inlay on the entertainment system cover. Contrast piping and stitching accentuate the contemporary, dramatic design theme. As a finishing touch, the dashboard-mounted clock features a black crown.  The Ghost V-Specification is available for both standard and extended wheelbase bodies.

Technology

Rolls-Royce Ghost V-Specification

The V-Specification celebrates one of the Rolls-Royce Ghost’s defining characteristics: its 6.6 litre V12 engine.  The standard Ghost – if there is such a thing as a standard Rolls-Royce – boasts 563bhp. The V-Specification adds a further 30bhp, bringing the total up to 593bhp and propelling the Spirit of Ecstasy from standstill to 60 miles an hour in just 4.7 seconds. Naturally, this impressive performance is accomplished with the utmost refinement, smoothness and flexibility. As with the Ghost, the Ghost V-Specification’s V12 engine offers a full 80% of its maximum torque from idle, giving the impression of inexhaustible reserves of power.

Other key characteristics of the Ghost are also retained, from the supple yet responsive air suspension to the 8-speed gearbox. A head-up display with Night Vision warns of any unlit cyclists or pedestrians within range whilst the satellite-aided transmission knows whether you’re ascending an alpine pass or cruising through the Low Countries and modifies its shift patterns accordingly. It’s the perfect complement to the V-Specification’s remarkable V12 engine.
