Gh-Gh-Ghost! Rolls-Royce Teases New Entry-Level Model Ahead of Swiss Debut [2014 Geneva Auto Show]

The appeal of Rolls-Royce’s Ghost is twofold: one, it’s a Roller, and two, it’s far more inviting to drive than the small house it appears to be lets on. Powered by a fortified variation of BMW’s 6.6-liter twin-turbo V-12, it complements the Phantom upper-luxury sedan quite nicely, slotting into the entry-opulent segment somewhere between Bentley’s Flying Spur and Mulsanne. Now, five years into the Ghost’s life, Rolls will introduce a refresh for its most plebeian offering.

Dubbed the Ghost Series II, it’s a slightly modified and updated variation of the current model, and will make its debut at the Geneva auto show in March. This image from Rolls-Royce provides us a glimpse of the redesigned headlights, which now feature a visual step—not unlike the shape of the Jeep Grand Cherokee’s peepers—as well as a slightly more streamlined fascia.
