The new Rolls-Royce Ghost debuts on September 1
Next week, we’ll see the new Rolls-Royce Ghost, a sedan with whisper-quiet engineering and all-wheel steering system.
The British luxury marque gave details super-fancy interior and revealed more about the cabin of the new luxury saloon, and some of the engineering involved. The new Rolls-Royce Ghost has an illuminated dashboard, actually a design centerpiece that took two years and 10,000 hours to create. The interior panel of the ultraluxurious sedan is called “illuminated fascia” and features the Ghost name in block letters with star lights around it. According to Rolls-Royce, it worked in 850 stars inside over two years of development on this feature alone. When the Ghost is not running, the stars disappear, but when the driver fires the car up the starts light up.
Besides, the new Rolls-Royce Ghost will feature 100kg of sound deadening material, that help to block out all the irritating noises. The new sedan is built around a rigid spaceframe, made of aluminum because this material is lighter than steel, which has many benefits when it comes to driving dynamics and fuel efficiency, and it transmits less noise, too. The bulkhead is double-skinned to isolate the cabin from the already-quiet 6.75-litre V12, with the double-glazed windows, tyres and air conditioning ducts adapted for total silence. The British luxury maker say that these measures are so effective that sound has to be pumped in, as it was found that a vehicle that’s totally silent inside proved confusing for occupants.
