According to Spofec, the second-generation Rolls-Royce Ghost is the “sportiest Rolls sedan ever”. Novitec’s subsidiary brand needed more than that as an excuse to take care of the prestige sedan. On the program: the traditional recipe of exterior decoration and motor adjustments, Novitec wisely leaves the interior alone. Customers wishing to personalize their Ghost could already do so at Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke department.
Flamingo pink rims, anyone?
The exterior decoration consists of a lower and more sporty front bumper with extra corners and edges, complemented by slightly wider side panels, lower side skirts and a subtle yet slightly more muscular rear bumper. The icing on the cake is a very small spoiler tab on the trunk lid. The wheel arches are well filled by 22-inch forged alloy wheels from Vossen, which are pushed out a little further with 40 mm (front) and 50 mm wide spacers at the rear). By the way, you can get the rims in 48 different colors, from dark gray to flamingo pink. The stance is ensured by the Can-Tronic air suspension module, which lowers the car a further 40 mm on its feet.
114 hp thanks to a chip
The Rolls-Royce Ghost delivers 571 hp and 850 Nm as standard thanks to its biturbo V12, but there is still a considerable margin, as Spofec proves. With a simple plug-and-play chip tuning module, the company manages to get 685 hp and 958 Nm from the engine, good for a sprint from 0 to 100 in 4.5 seconds. The top speed is limited to 250 km/h.
A Rolls should be whisper quiet, but the Spofec Ghost may sound a bit sportier and gets a stainless steel sports exhaust with valves to give the growl a little more decibels. The price? Following the example of the major luxury brands, it is available on request.
