Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II Sedan (2014-2020)

Neoscore 78%NEX score 79%

Product Overview

Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II is the facelifted version of the Ghost full-size luxury sedan in production from 2014 to 2020. It was powered by a single BMW N74 V12 bi-turbo engine that displaced 6.6 liters (N74B66).
Mechanically, the Series II is identical to the pre-facelift Ghost. Changes are limited to interior fitments, electronics, and subtle exterior updates.
Owners who find the Phantom a bit difficult to afford may find the Ghost an attractive option, being clearly a step above the normal 7 Series / S-Class.

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
£216,684 Ghost Series II is over 17 inches shorter than a Phantom and a significant chunk of your mortgage less expensive. The 6.6-litre bi-turbo V12's eight-speed gearbox is now married to the sat-nav GPS. iDrive system, and its control, have also been upgraded, and even better on-the-move connectivity promised for the thrusting exec.
