Rolls-Royce has introduced the 2nd Generation Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended in the Indian market priced at INR 7.95 Crores ex-showroom. The Extended in the moniker undoubtedly means a long-wheelbase version (LWB). In its long-wheelbase Ghost Extended commands close to INR 1 Crore more than the standard 2nd generation Ghost and offers the most rear legroom in a four-seat saloon with the exception of Phantom Extended.

The 2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended has been developed direct feedback from Rolls-Royce clients, a collective of business leaders, founders and entrepreneurs. It is built on the same aluminium spaceframe chassis like the Rolls-Royce Phantom and the Cullinan and the Ghost Extended offers 170mm more space than the standard Ghost. The Ghost Extended is also 5,715mm in length, compared to the standard the 2nd generation Ghost which is already longer than the predecessor and measures 5,546mm in length. 

On the outside, the Ghost Extended replicates all the details from the Ghost and the only changes are to the rear doors and the body around the rear door apertures, to cloak and preserve the lines of the Ghost. But on the inside, the Ghost Extended can be selected with, for the first time, a reclining Serenity Seat. Rolls-Royce has also equipped the Ghost Extended with a Champagne fridge in between the rear seats, consulted with a Master Sommelier, to learn the optimum serving temperatures of Vintage Champagnes and accordingly tuned the cooling. The Ghost Extended also comes with WiFi and cutting-edge infotainment systems is essential for use during the business day. 

Other highlights from the 2nd generation Ghost have also been carried over such as the new illuminated Pantheon grille with 20 LEDs that subtly glow the vertical vanes, new LED and Laser headlight and new taillights. The hallmark Starlight headliner that replicates the sky over Goodwood, a Micro-Environment Purification System and Bespoke 18 channel Audio system, to name a few.

The Rolls-Royce Ghost is powered by a 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged V12 petrol engine that generates 571 PS of power and 850 Nm of torque at only 1600 RPMs matched to a ZF 8HP90 8-speed automatic transmission. The brand has also incorporated 100kg of acoustic damping materials into the chassis, bodywork and tyres for exceptionally quiet cabin even at high speeds. 

The deliveries on the Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended are expected to begin from Q1 of 2021 and Q4 of 2020 in the International market.
