Rolls-Royce’s 2021 Ghost Is Its Most Technologically Advanced Car Ever

Sep 1, 2020

Rolls-Royce has never been one to shy away from opulence. Its entire automotive lineup relies on flamboyance and luxurious depravity, maintaining its resolution as one of the industry’s most outspoken brands. At the center of this lineup lies the Ghost — a bombastic sedan that retails for more than most people’s homes. Now, Rolls has announced that its 2021 model will ditch the superficial nature of its predecessor, emphasizing true class, taste, and style instead.

The 2021 Ghost introduces new aesthetic pleasantries and updated quality-of-life systems to Rolls-Royce’s lauded lineup, but its redesigned nature might not be immediately apparent. It turns out that the car has finally adopted the brand’s Architecture of Luxury chassis, allowing for greater modularity and torsional stiffness. This is complemented by improved acoustic impedance — courtesy of its newly-acquired aluminum accents — and over 220 pounds of acoustic damping. If on-road serenity isn’t your thing, you’ll be happy to hear that the Ghost also features the same 563-horsepower, 6.8-liter twin-turbo V12 engine as the company’s Cullinan, allowing it to catapult from 0 to 60 miles-per-hour in under 4.8 seconds. That’s not bad for a 5628-pound four-door. A cutting-edge planar suspension system and “smart transmission” — which utilizes GPS coordinates to shift depending on topography — round things out. We’ve only skimmed the surface of the 2021 Ghost, so head to Rolls-Royce’s website for more information.
