The Rolls-Royce Ghost is a British full-size luxury car. The "Ghost" nameplate, named in honour of the Silver Ghost, a car first produced in 1906. The Series II(as it is currently called) 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 so as to feed more cooling air to the front brakes.

The ghost is powered by a 6.6 litre twin turbo V12 engine producing 562 hp and 780 Nm of torque. Many variants are offered with the ghost, all of which use an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission.

On the inside, Rolls-Royce fitted re-designed front seats, and re-angled the rear seats so as 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 highlights include a "Dynamic Driving Package" that claims to offer 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.
