Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has confirmed the full performance figures for their brand new model; Ghost. The luxury car will be unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show in September and will be powered by a brand new 6.6 litre turbo charged V12 engine. This engine will produce 563bhp, delivering a 0-60mph time of 4.7 seconds and a governed top speed of 155mph. The engine is combined with an 8-speed automatic ZF gearbox.
The full specifications are an engine power output of 563bhp / 420kW / 570PS @ 5250rpm, a top speed of 155mph / 250km/h (electronically governed) and a maximum torque 780Nm / 575lbft @ 1500rpm. The Rolls-Royce Ghost will ride on an intelligent four corner air suspension system using multi link aluminium front and rear axles. This ensures a pleasant ride while you are trying to reach these figures.
