Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars announced the new Ghost Extended, offering the indulgence of enhanced rear seating space with no compromise to Ghost's driving dynamics. Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended is the product of an exhaustive process of consultation with a new generation of Rolls-Royce clients. This global, highly dynamic group of entrepreneurs expressed a desire for a chauffeur-driven business tool for the week that can transform into a serenely comfortable and dynamic self-driven saloon at the weekend. Ghost Extended is the response. First customer deliveries will be made in the fourth quarter of 2020.
Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended offers 170mm more space than Ghost, providing more rear legroom than any four-seat sedan with the exception of a Rolls-Royce Phantom Extended. Customer centricity has informed every step of the development process. A key learning was that Ghost Extended customers wanted no compromise to Ghost's pure, minimalist design. The marque's designers worked to cloak the extra length by only extending the rear door and body around the rear door apertures, preserving the lines of the car.
A suite of enhancements to the rear of the cabin reflects Ghost Extended's flexibility. For the first time, a reclining Serenity Seat can be selected, offering a new dimension of rear seat comfort akin to a business jet cabin environment.
The rear cabin also provides the perfect environment to transition from business to leisure. To enhance this, a Champagne fridge is provided between the rear seats and has been developed with exacting attention to the needs of the Rolls-Royce client. To achieve this, the marque's engineers consulted with a Master Sommelier. They learned that the optimum serving temperatures of non-vintage Champagne is around six degrees centigrade and vintage Champagnes is around 11 degrees centigrade. To that end, the refrigerator operates two cooling modes, chilling to six degrees and 11 degrees.
