5 Reasons Every Girl NEEDS a Rolls-Royce Ghost

From its classic features to its fashion-forward style, this luxury motor car is a supermodel of refined elegance.

I once dated a rock musician who had longer hair than mine and who wore more eyeliner than I did. And while that could've seemed like a conflict of personal beauty interests, it instead created a convenient opportunity for me to be instantly cool by association. The very same concept is undeniably true of the new Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II. Showcased as a demarcation of success by athletes, celebrities, and the world's most uber-elite, this renowned vehicle line of unparalleled luxury exhibits striking good looks, bespoke high fashion, creative ingenuity, bright technological intellect, and justifiably-confident unabashed chutzpah. And aren't these the characteristics for which almost every forward-thinking contemporary woman desires to be known as well?


Rolls-Royce Ghost | Spirit of Ecstasy

The iconic 'Spirit of Ecstasy' grille ornament can be crafted in solid sterling silver (as shown), plated with 24-carat gold, uplit with a halo of white light, or finished with an illuminated frosted effect.


GOOD LOOKS


From the tip of its monogrammed headrests to the bottom of its dig-in-your-toes extravagantly-plush lamb's wool floor mats, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is stunningly beautiful. Easily identified by the iconic Spirit of Ecstasy symbol of automotive excellence which proudly stands as a guiding vanguard on the vehicle's bonnet, the extraordinary motor car provides artful design down to every thoughtfully-prepared detail. Modeled seats are gently angled towards one other, interior buttons are shaped to resemble the keys of a flute or saxophone, and self-righting wheel centers even ensure that the Rolls-Royce logo is always in the upright position. While maintaining a respected position of honor within the topmost upper class of luxury automobiles, the Ghost simultaneously complements the individual style and meticulous personal preferences of its owner occupants. It's like the gloss shine for your lips, the color-saturated polish for your nails, or the rich crème mascara for your long lashes.


Rolls-Royce Ghost | Wood Veneers

Smoked eucalyptus fiddleback and other wood veneers can be ordered for the interior fascia, center console, door panniers, armrests, and door cappings.


BESPOKE FASHION


The House of Rolls-Royce enlists colorists, sculptors, designers, and technicians to ensure that this tailor-made 'work of art on wheels' demonstrates head-turning aesthetics of refined elegance for a variety of moods and attitudes. Unburdened by ordinary auto manufacturing limitations, the incomparable craftsmanship and artful design of the company's bespoke program allows purchasers to commission custom options such as hand-crafted high-polish wood veneers derived from a single tree to ensure consistency throughout the interior, hand-stitched leatherwork and piping in a wide variety of lavish color schemes, name-engraved treadplates located on the entry strips of the car, and much more. The Ghost can additionally be fitted with either a panoramic sunroof or an exceptionally-blingy starlight headliner comprised of 1,340 fiber-optic strands of adjustable illumination which shine through holes overhead in a dazzling simulation of a starry night sky.


Rolls-Royce Ghost | Umbrella

An abundance of cleverly hidden yet easily-accessible compartments offer storage for a number of personal items, and each of the two front doors are equipped with stowable umbrellas in the event of inclement weather.


CREATIVE INGENUITY


Whether you're driving or being chauffeured, the Ghost pampers its passengers with innovative accessories and gadgets galore. While front-seat occupants enjoy amenities such as heated or cooled seats with massage, as well as a handy umbrella built right into each front door in case of inclement weather, riders in the backseat compartment are treated to an impressive array of features when the rear-hinged doors open outward to reveal an oasis of luxurious serenity. This chic environment includes a conveniently-located button which initiates automatic door closure, quad-zone climate controls for preferred airflow and precise temperature settings, and a semi-secret storage compartment for significant small items. Individually-set media controls manipulate each of two separate 9.2-inch entertainment system screens, and airline-style picnic tables fold out to hold office electronics, personal items, or refreshments. The pinnacle of component availability, however, is the mirrored and illuminated two-stage Coolbox which accommodates two bottles of champagne and storage for two glass drinking flutes. After all, living large can sometimes be just an effortless small thing.


Rolls-Royce Ghost | Interior

The beautiful leather-covered steering wheel emphasizes the Ghost's full-leather interior with natural grain hides applied to seating surfaces, door panniers, lower pillars, instrument panel, and center console.


BRIGHT INTELLECT


Designed to make driving as intuitive as possible, a wealth of cutting-edge technology can be accessed via the 10.2-inch high-definition interface which is activated by a rotary controller and cleverly hidden behind a wood veneer panel when not in use. Multi-display readouts may include satellite navigation cues, rear/side camera feedback with top view, or music selections for the premium bespoke audio system which constantly monitors outside noise and automatically adjusts volume settings. The rain-sensing wipers, adaptive headlights, active cruise control, head up display output, and Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities work to keep drivers safe and informed, while Rolls-Royce TeleServices seamlessly transmits important maintenance information to your authorized dealer. The vehicle's security system features an interior motion detector with engine immobilization, and its infrared camera provides night vision thermal imaging with pedestrian recognition up to 300 meters away. Like an en-route bodyguard ensuring your personal well being, the Ghost monitors surrounding conditions so that you are free to focus on enjoying the ride.


Rolls-Royce Ghost | Speedometer

An effortless performance-driven experience is powered by a twin turbo 6.6-liter V12 engine which boasts a top speed of 155 mph and an acceleration rate of 0-100 mph in an astounding 5.0 seconds.


UNABASHED CHUTZPAH


One of my father's repeated instructions to me throughout the course of my life has been, Don't let your mouth write checks that your [rear end] can't cash which I have always considered to be advice well worth heeding. Likewise demonstrating a proven ability to put its money where its mouth is, the Rolls-Royce brand makes no apologies for its bold statements and brazen extravagance. And why should it? The Ghost backs its elegantly-clean lines, unsurpassed comfort features, and top-of-the-line technology with a twin turbo 6.6-liter V12 engine that boasts a top speed of 155 mph and an acceleration rate of 0-100 mph in an astounding 5.0 seconds. As one of the most technologically-advanced cars ever built, the Ghost's satellite-aided transmission also uses GPS data along with the in-car navigation system to scan the road ahead and apply appropriate gearing selections for the eight-speed transmission. By this means, a powerful performance-driven experience is triumphantly achieved.


Rolls-Royce Ghost | Starlight Headliner

Roofline options include either an expansive panoramic sunroof or a dazzling starlight headliner comprised of 1,340 fiber-optic strands of illumination which shine through holes in a simulation of a starry night sky.


So whether you're hobnobbing within the upper echelon of society's privileged crème de la crème, or merely trying to relax in style at the end of a long hard day, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars can custom tailor a vehicle to represent the most authentic expression of your own unique personality. From its elegant standard version and extended wheelbase version to its bolder Black Badge enhancement which defiantly exudes an intensified demeanor, the company's current model offerings are firmly traditional yet utterly avant-garde. The Ghost magnetically grabs attention without being overly ostentatious and shows up without showing off ... well, too much anyway.
