Rolls Ghost tweaked for 2013

2012-10-30 09:22

EVEN MORE EXCLUSIVE: The 2013 Rolls-Royce Ghost was previewed at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August, 2012.

Rolls-Royce has presented its 2013 model year Ghost, with subtle enhancements and new luxury features.

The Ghost’s cabin gains soft, natural leather and cross-banded wood veneers.

An upgraded audio system includes an upgraded amplifier and speakers in the leather headlining to “raise the centre of sound closer to the passengers' ears”.

CONCEPT FOR IDEAS

Adding to its long list of features, the Ghost will be equipped with 'comfort access - the boot can be opened with a foot movement beneath the rear bumper. A useful feature - seen already on sister brand BMW's products - when your hands are full and the key is in your pocket.

Furthermore, there’s an extra forged-alloy wheel option that can be specified along with the current tens of thousands of options already available on the Ghost.

Rolls-Royce said the bespoke Ghost Six Senses concept (shown in April, 2012) provided inspiration for the 2013 Ghost.
