Spyshots: Rolls-Royce Ghost Fastback at Nurburgring

Spyshots Rolls-Royce Ghost Fastback at Nurburgring

Rolls-Royce has shipped its new test mule to the Nurburgring Nordschleife. The camouflaged Rolls-Royce Ghost Fastback tester was spotted by photographers lapping the famous Ring. If you look closely on the picture, you will spot three door handles on the prototype. Two are surely fake, but keeps us guessing how the doors will open. Nice trick Rolls-Royce!

The new coupé is to be powered by a tuned version of the saloon’s turbocharged 6.6 liter V12 engine providing an increased output of about 600bhp and a proportional increase in torque. The engine is linked to a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission converting the power to the rear wheels. The increase in performance is accompanied by mildly sports-orientated upgrades to the brakes, tyres and suspension.

Improved agility is provided by an improved suspension, bigger tyres, reduced weight and size and a chassis lowered by 10mm. The top speed will be limited to 250km/h, but the coupe’s 0-100mph acceleration is expected to be considerably faster than that of the already quick Ghost saloon.

    When I very first check this out I thought I don’t think this really is going to work, I thought that by stripping off of weight and also giving it sportier suspension it’ll several of that sumptuousness that you have started to know from Rolls Royce then again I moved backside and realized which I missed in the phrase mildly sports orientated updates as well as then I understood the genius of almost everything.

    When I first read this I thought I don’t think this is going to work, I thought that by stripping off weight and giving it sportier suspension it’ll some of that luxury that we have come to know from Rolls Royce but then I went back and realized that I skipped over the words mildly sports orientated upgrades and then I realized the genius of it all.
