Lot 215 - 2018 Rolls-Royce Ghost
|Odometer reading||15,751 miles|
- Late Series II example
- Recently serviced and with full Rolls-Royce service history
The Rolls-Royce ‘Ghost’ is named in honour of the Silver Ghost, a car first produced in 1906 and was announced in April 2009 at the Auto Shanghai show and later officially unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. During development, the Ghost was known as the RR04. It was designed as a smaller, more measured and more realistic car than the Phantom model. According to a statement by BMW AG, this generation of automobile, with an internal combustion engine, is to be produced until 2030, at which point the company intends to manufacture electric models only. Rolls-Royce introduced the updated Series II Ghost at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. Visual changes over the Series I Ghost include re-sculpted headlights, and unbroken daytime running lights. The Series II also gained a tapered 'wake channel' on the bonnet, emanating from the Spirit of Ecstasy's wings. Chrome inserts were added to the front air intakes, which had been enlarged to feed more cooling air to the front brakes. The bumpers were also subtly revised, while the side character line Rolls-Royce calls a ‘waft line’ was slanted further forward. New alloy wheel and colour options were also offered. Like the 2009 Ghost, the 2014 Ghost Series II was designed by Andreas Thurner.
On the inside, Rolls-Royce fitted redesigned front seats, and reangled the rear seats to allow for easier communication with other passengers. The clock fascia and instrument dials gained polished metal chaplets that evoke premium watch design. Natural grain leather could now be fitted to the A and C pillars, and two new veneers became available. Technical modifications include redesigned front and rear struts coupled to new steering gear, as well as adjusted dampers and new rear hydraulic axle bearings. The Series II also gained advanced LED headlights. The Series II Rolls-Royce also offers a ‘Dynamic Driving Package’ that they claim offers a more involving driving experience. Satellite Aided Transmission technology was added to all Ghosts, which utilises GPS data, as well as analysing the driving style of the driver, to select the most appropriate gear.
This stunning 2019 Ghost was registered early in December 2018, it is supplied from a private owner and was purchased from Rolls-Royce Sunningdale. Presented in stunning black coachwork with a Silver Satin bonnet finish and cream sumptuous leather trim. Recently serviced by Rolls-Royce and we are informed offered with a full Rolls-Royce service history which is now digitised. With just 15,751 miles on the clock, this car is understandably in very good condition and will be fully detailed for the auction with no marks on the alloy wheels or signs of any dents or blemishes on the paintwork. These cars are sure to go down as one of the most desirable modern Rolls-Royce’s in years to come, beginning to look even better with age, this example would be the perfect addition to any collection of significant cars.
