Rolls Royce Ghost
Meticulous attention to detail; that is how each Rolls-Royce Ghost is constructed. This is the same philosophy which Forza Tuning and Performance applies to every facet of exotic, luxury and high-performance vehicle repair, service and modification. No detail is so minute that it escapes the careful scrutiny of founder and President Brenton Brown. Each vehicle is checked, re-checked, test driven by Brenton – and re-checked again. Brenton Brown, himself an ASE Certified Level 1 Auto Technician with more than two-decades of experience, leads the Forza team of highly skilled and factory trained technicians in delivering a brand of Rolls-Royce Ghost service and repair that exceeds (even) that of the dealership.
Should you feel the need for speed, Brenton (the Exotic Car Doc) Brown is also a nationally recognized performance and tuning guru with many famous builds to his credit. Whether you desire expert ECU tuning, performance exhaust, racing air filters or some other type of performance modification, Forza is up to the task. You can trust Forza Tuning and Performance to get the most out of your Rolls-Royce Ghost.
Rolls-Royce Ghost Series I (2009-2012)
The “Ghost” moniker pays homage to the Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost (produced from 1906 through 1926). Introduced during the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Rolls-Royce Ghost was designed as a smaller and more affordable Rolls than the Phantom. The Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase made its debut in 2011.
Designed by Andreas Thurner and Helmut Riedl (Rolls-Royce Phantom), the Rolls-Royce Ghost shares a platform with the BMW 7-Series – although heavily modified to accommodate the added size (129.7-inch wheelbase) and weight (5,445-pounds) of the Rolls-Royce Ghost body. The Series I Ghost utilizes Rolls-Royce Phantom style air springs and FlexRay electronic control system.
Both the Series I Rolls-Royce Ghost and Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase models are equipped with the 6.6-liter twin turbo engine used in the BMW 7-Series. It can produce 562hp and 575 lb.-ft. of torque and has a top speed of 155.3 mph. The only available transmission is a ZF 8-speed automatic.
An update to the 2013 Rolls-Royce Ghost lineup adds the Rolls-Royce Ghost V-Specification and the Rolls-Royce Extended Wheelbase V-Specification. The 6.6-liter twin turbo engine is now tuned to churn out 592hp and 664 lb.-ft. of torque.
Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II (2014-present)
Making its debut during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, the Series II Rolls-Royce Ghost featured numerous aesthetic enhancements to the interior, as well as the exterior of the automobile. From a mechanical standpoint, the Series II Ghost was equipped with re-designed struts – front and rear – and new rear hydraulic axle bearings. The same 6.6-liter turbocharged V12 engine powered the Series II Ghost and Ghost Extended Wheelbase in 2014 and 2015. In 2016, the twin turbo 6.6-liter V12 was upgraded to generate 562hp with 605 lb.-ft. of torque. The Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge version was also added. The engine in this model could produce 604hp and 620 lb.-ft. of torque.
Rolls-Royce Ghost Series III (coming soon)
Spy photos of the Series III (2021) Rolls-Royce Ghost indicate that Rolls-Royce will be moving away from the BMW platform and opting for a dedicated aluminum spaceframe chassis design. This should help with ride quality, as well as provide a significant reduction in weight. The engine is expected to be a 6.7-liter twin turbo V12 capable of producing 563hp and 664 lb.-ft. of torque. Release is slated for late 2020 or early 2021.
