the Wraith may have all the grunt that would appeal to (very rich) motoring enthusiasts (read: businessmen/women), but if you wanted something that you can let someone take the wheel and you, enjoying the amenities a Rolls has to offer, the Rolls-Royce Ghost V-Specification is the way to go. it don’t have the brute ponies of the Wraith, but it certainly measures up more than a ‘regular’ Ghost. under the hood is a 6.6-liter V12 unit producing 593 horses (442 kW) and a peak torque of 780 Nm (575 lb-ft), mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox that enables this luxury beast to rocket from naught to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.9 seconds and on the way to a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

visual statement defining the Ghost V-Specification are coachlines incorporating the V-Specification emblem that adorns the exterior and a choice of five specially selected colors, namely graphite, black sapphire, black kirsch, arctic white and infinity black (though you can still opt for colors from Rolls-Royce’s catalog). rolling stocks come in the form of 21-inch wheels, shod in Goodyear EMT 255/40 R21 102Y rubbers up front and 285/35 R21 105Y at the rear. the V-Specification emblem continues into the handcrafted cabin and can be found on the treadplates, rear armrest and front multimedia screen lid, along with an specially designed clock with black crown surrounding the face.

available in standard and Ghost Extended Wheelbase, the Rolls-Royce Ghost V-Specification will be produced for a limited period of time. so if you want one, and have six figures of greens at your disposal (seven, for those in Singapore. crazy, we know), you better hurry down to your local Rolls dealership and secure yourself one. and remember to bring along your check book to show that you are serious about your purchase.
