What to expect?
Coming directly to the changes, the all-new Black Badge Ghost will be getting a dark theme. To differentiate, the British brand has decided to use dark 21-inch alloy wheels, similarly treated grille, black ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’ and other similarly treated panels.
Inside the cabin, Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost is available with blue panels. To retain the practicality, it is loaded with a touchscreen infotainment system, large centre console, three-spoke steering wheel and large AC vents as standard.
According to the brand, this special edition limousine will sit on large air springs to contain the overall body roll. For improved driving dynamics, it will also get four-wheel steering, enhanced braking system and throttle response just like the standard model.
Engine & Transmission
Globally, Rolls-Royce offers a powerful 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine on the Black Badge Ghost. As expected, this same power unit will arrive in India to propel a massive 600PS and 900Nm of torque.
Transmission duties for this setup are managed by an 8-speed automatic gearbox. Thankfully, the all-wheel drive and an all-wheel steering system make this special edition Ghost, an extremely capable luxury sedan.
