The news keeps coming from this year’s Geneva Motor Show, this time from famed English car manufacturer Rolls-Royce. The subtle redesign for the Ghost Series II includes re-sculpted LED headlights outlined by daytime running lights and a tapered “wake channel” which starts right behind the Spirit of Ecstasy’s wings, recalling the sight of a jet’s vapor trail or the wake of a speedy luxury yacht. The Ghost’s bumpers have also been re-sculpted, resulting in a stronger stance and a sense of extra width and height. Further contemporary details include the addition of chrome inserts to the front air intakes.

Specifications are, of course, dynamic and luxurious. The car comes outfitted with Satellite Aided Transmission as standard equipment which uses GPS data to anticipate the driver’s demands, choosing the proper gear for the road ahead and the speed at which the car is being driven. Although the Ghost II is powered by a 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine, Rolls-Royce has, in typical fashion, avoided delivering any specific power levels.
