Rolls Royce Ghost drive test

Rolls Royce is a symbol of luxury, elegance and wealth. Even from the beginning of the twentieth century, Rolls Royce is an icon of classy and stylish cars. The names of the Rolls Royce models in the course of time followed a certain nametag, with only a few exceptions. With nametags like the Silver Ghost, Phantom, Wraith, Silver Wraith, Seraph and so on, you can clearly sense what Rolls Royce cars are all about. They are cars for serious people, robust and smart people, that have managed to gain an impressive wealth. The level of luxury found in a Rolls Royce is incomparable to any other car. I think that everyone would want to own someday a Rolls Royce.

Now, Rolls Royce has offered a preview of the small Phantom, the car that will hit the market under the name Ghost. Dan Balmer, the product manager, has taken the prototype Ghost car for a test drive and filmed everything. The public debut of the Rolls Royce Ghost will take place in September during the Frankfurt Auto Show. The power of the Rolls Royce Ghost will be given by a V12 6.6 liter turbocharged engine that will be mated to an eight speed automatic ZF gearbox. The Rolls Royce Ghost will hit the European market towards the end of the year while the other markets will have to wait for the first half of the year 2010.
