China is a market where long wheelbase models sell well, so in order to address customer ‘needs’, luxury car maker Rolls-Royce is introducing the Extended Wheelbase version of the Ghost. This elongated model has premiered at the Auto Shanghai Motor Show today and as you can easily deduct, this is a model in which to be chauffeured, considering that wheel compared to the regular model, this version is 170 mm longer.
The Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase will be powered by the same 6.6-litre twin turbo V12 engine found in the shorter version, so this means its output levels are 562 HP and 780 Nm of torque @ 1,500 rpm. Accelerating from 0 to 100 Km/h in the Ghost Extended Wheelbase takes 5.0 seconds, with power being sent to the wheels by an 8-speed ZF transmission.
Apart from improved cabin space, the Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase has also received a panoramic sunroof in order to set new standards for interior ambiance. in 2011 the automaker plans to sell the Ghost Extended Wheelbase in limited numbers, while full production will begin in 2012.
Pricing for the Ghost Extended Wheelbase on the Chinese market starts at 5.118 million RMB including taxes.
