Some call it the epitome of luxury. Rolls Royce is the last word in exclusive uber-luxurious mobility. The iconic British brand now owned by BMW today launched the long-wheelbase version of the Rolls Royce Ghost in India and being a Rolls Royce, it doesn’t come cheap. These guys don’t do cheap and cheerful products. The products they make are not for the average individual. They make cars for the royals, for those who dream of spending their next vacation on the moon.
The Rolls Royce Ghost LWB will be available in India for a stratospheric price of INR 3.05 Crore i.e. 30.5 million Indian rupees. Now, the Ghost is actually a BMW 7-Series underneath. Specialized craftsman at the Rolls Royce facility add a touch of British heritage to it by laying acres of the finest quality leather inside the cabin. The trim inserts can be ordered in the most exotic of wood known to man which is polished for hours together for that perfect shine.
It may well be a BMW dressed as a royal princess but actually is more Rolls Royce than it is BMW. It is just the platform where the similarities end. The way the car is put together at the Rolls Royce facility is not different than the other bespoke cars they make including the Phantom. Under the long and shiny bonnet is a 6.6 litre V12 that puts out 563 bhp and 780 Nm of torque and is mated to a ZF 8-Speed automatic transmission. 0-100 kph comes up in 5.0 sec and can hit a top speed of 250 kph.
Customers get an option to select any colour of their choice along with other customization options including the type and colour of the leather, veneer, the wheels among others. The luxury car market in India is growing at a rapid pace and in one of top markets in Asia. The growth curve is also expected to be steep in the years to follow and we could see more and more expensive cars being sold in the country.
