The design is purer now, on both the inside and out. In some instances you can plainly see that the minimalism is forgotten though. Take the large grille for instance, which can be optioned with illumination. That’s a fancy touch.
The hallmarks of the "junior" Rolls-Royce are retained and enhanced though. The rearward-opening back doors are now electrically operated like in the Phantom royal barge, and there’s more evidence of an infusion of modern digital tech like the slimmer headlamps with many LED lamps. These are the powerful Laser lights that pierce the dark with 600m of clear forward views.
Look at the new Ghost from both ends. There’s now a very Teutonic sanitisation of tight shut lines, visible sensors, larger surface areas and a tasteful amount of dazzling chrome.
At 5,546mm, the new Ghost is 89mm longer than the model it replaces and its 1,978mm width is 30mm more than the old car, which results in more shoulder room inside while providing enough room for a new all-wheel drive system with four-wheel steering that’s the automotive rage right now.
