FrontRunners: Ghost Story

  • Rolls-Royce’s Ghost

    The four-door Rolls-Royce Ghost (www.rolls-roycemotorcars.com), unveiled in concept form at the International Geneva Motor Show in March, is short by company standards. The car, however, is only 17 inches shorter than Rolls-Royce’s 19-foot-long Phantom models, and it features a similar shape. The Ghost will also share paint, wood, and leather workshops with the Phantom series, but it will have its own production line, where the company will build the car’s new chassis and install its 6.6-liter turbocharged V-12 engine. Production will begin late this year, and, as with the Phantom, Rolls-Royce will likely release coupe and convertible versions of the Ghost.
