As the most technologically advanced Rolls-Royce to date, the new Ghost is already a compelling drive, built with its own spaceframe chassis setup and riding on a world-first Planar suspension system. However, those who are familiar with NOVITEC will know: not even those distinctions are enough to save the luxury sedan from a bout of aftermarket excess.
And boy are the results astonishing. As part of its Ghost II tuning package, NOVITEC’s SPOFEC subbrand gives the Rolls a comprehensive performance overhaul to eke out every ounce of its athleticism. Under the hood, it receives an N-Tronic ECU, some power-optimized pipes, and a switchtronic exhaust flap regulator. In aggregate, such upgrades bring the twin-turbo V12’s output up from 563hp and 627lb-ft of torque all the way to a staggering 675 horses and 707lb-ft. And while that only knocks some 0.1s off the Ghost’s 0-62mph sprint, at least it wears some revised bodywork to suit. That is, from the front bumper to the rear spoiler lip, SPOFEC outfits the Ghost with carbon fiber panels, giving it a design that’s sporty yet understated. Sitting 40mm lower on some 22-inch forged Vossen wheels, it makes for a markedly different animal. Check it out below.
