2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost: Sharp, Dynamic and Ultra Luxurious

1.86KViews

The 2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost has gotten a slight styling upgrade this year. While it has evolved for the better, sharper looks, it still looks as iconic as any other Rolls-Royce ever to be produced. Ghost’s new design language builds on the same Architecture of Luxury that is widely used in the Phantom and the SUV model Cullinan.

In comparison to the previous model, the new Ghost offers a sharper driving experience. It has an all-wheel steering system and 50/50 weight distribution. Handling has been made slightly stiffer and with these improvements, it is as much a driver’s car as passenger’s.

With all the driver focused enhancements, the Ghost still delivers exceptional ride quality. You have an adaptive suspension system that uses a road-scanning camera to help the vehicle anticipate any changes in terrain and adjusts the ride accordingly.

As per the manufacturer, the 2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost can deliver a 0 – 100 km per hour speed dash in 4.6 seconds. As much as I really wanted to test this claim, Dubai’s foggy weather sadly didn’t permit me to dash around but the over-all driving experience was very entertaining. There is no lag in acceleration and pushing the throttle is greeted by a spirited response.

The braking response on the Ghost is superb. Mind you, it is a car of big proportions but bringing it to a quick stop is easy. Passengers wont feel much of a forward movement even while braking hard, what else could we ask for?

Rolls-Royce Ghost Specs:

Engine: 6.7 Liter – V12
Horsepower: 563
Drive System: All Wheel Drive
Transmission: 8 Speed Automatic

Interior:

Ghost’s cabin is an ultra luxurious retreat lined with some of the finest materials ever to be used in automotive manufacturing. Needless to say that there is generous space for both front and rear seat passengers to relax and enjoy the ride in comfort.

While the power-operated doors provide access to the cabin, our creative-director wanted me to manually close the doors to make it look a bit more dramatic. We also couldn’t really capture the real essence if the roof. It is lined with star lights that optionally glow up at night, building an even more luxurious interior.

The 2021 model has made some acoustic changes to the cabin insulation, you hear a bit of engine grunt when the driver does a hard press on the throttle. You also might notice some wind rush out of the vents, and a little bit of road noise. Roll-Royce design engineers say all of this is intentional and based on previous owner feedback, many of who prefer to be connected to the outside world.
