More powerful and limited edition V-Spec version of the Rolls-Royce Ghost has been unveiled

This is the Rolls-Royce Ghost V-Spec. Based on the standard and extended wheelbase Ghost models, it features various upgrades including a power boost and a new interior trim package.

Under the bonnet, power from the 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 is up from 563bhp to 593bhp – just shy of the manufacturer’s most powerful production car, the 624bhp two-door Wraith. The Ghost V-Spec completes the sprint to 60mph in the same 4.7 seconds as the standard model, however.

Changes over the standard car on the V-Spec model include larger 21-inch alloy wheels taken from the Wraith, a Sapphire Black paintjob along with V-Specification treadplates, rear armrest, clock and unique piping and stitching on the seats.

Rolls-Royce has produced several special editions of the Ghost, including the Ghost Art Deco car which received an exclusive Art Deco-inspired interior and the Alpine Trial Centenary Collection Ghost, a limited edition model inspired by the 1913 Alpine Trials Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost race cars.

The Ghost V-Spec is available to buy from now until the end of June and is built specifically by order. Pricing has yet to be confirmed but a 10 per cent premium over the standard model is expect, meaning a price tag of around £185,000. A facelifted version of the Ghost is also currently under development, with a possible reveal at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March.
