Rolls-Royce revives Ghost nameplate for new sedan

Rolls-Royce is reaching into its heritage for the name of the new, smaller sedan that's been known as the RR4 and the 200EX until now--the Ghost.

The original Rolls-Royce Ghost was produced from 1906 to 1925, with 7,876 units built in England and Springfield, Mass.

Production of the new Rolls-Royce Ghost will start this fall at the automaker's factory in Goodwood, England. The Ghost will have its own final assembly line, but share the paint, leather and wood workshops with the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

At the Geneva motor show in March, Rolls-Royce said the Ghost would be powered by a twin-turbo 6.6-liter V12 that will be rated at more than 500 hp. The engine will be mated to a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission.

Other Ghost specs:

Overall length: 212.6 inches

Width: 76.7 inches

Height: 61.0 inches

Wheelbase: 129.7 inches

We expect to see production versions of the Ghost, in sedan and convertible form, at the Frankfurt motor show in September.
