Rolls Royce Ghost..
Smaller.. Faster.. Amazing..
It is hard to think of 5.4 meters, 2.4 tons of the cabin, as a sport, but that's how the Spirit feels. Its 6.6-liter, twin-turbo V12 producing 563 hp at 5,250 rpm and 575 lb-ft of torque from very low 1500 rpm. Both outputs are about 25 percent ahead of those for the Phantom, which is also about 200 pounds heavier.
As a result some great spirit acceleration, including Porsche busting 0-60 miles / h time of 4.7 seconds. The maximum speed is governed at 155 miles / h, the vehicle speed can be achieved with remarkable ease. Despite this, the new twin-turbo engine is the most efficient V12 BMW now, with fuel economy and CO2 output once scored a small V8s.
Floor the throttle at 100 miles / hour, and the car surges forward, as the Italian supercar was struck by lightning - except for the fact that there is almost no noise. Fortunately, the air suspension provides stability, cornering grip and steering power needs such a powerful car.
Once you got used to the size of a car, you can throw it on with energy, provided that you are exactly the steering: this car does not have enough ghost proportions, but it is big. You can be sure, however, that the excellent brakes can wash rate of apparently effortless.
The big story of elegance and comfort. Over bumps you know, the evil car flexible and virtually silent. She refuses to give in almost all circumstances, or float over bumps.
It has one of the best, most advanced (and the truth is the most expensive) suspension ever by a car, much more, Rolls-Royce, than the 7-Series. No, no one has made back-to-back "comfort test" between the Spirit and the Phantom, but I would say that this is by no means certain that the more the car will win.
Interior equipment is comprehensive and built to surgical quality, but again thought ease of use. Example: the passengers do not choose the temperature in the cabin by number. They just have access to the two control wheels guiding the upper and lower temperature at which they sit: on the left for the cooler, the right handed. Each switch or control, although designed for a tasty, mechanical sense, has the same ease of use.
