, a facelifted version of its luxury model. The brand has made a "discreet and considered update of this iconic car’s exterior appearance".

Launched in 2009 Rolls-Royce chose the 2014 New York Motor Show to reveal a comprehensively refreshed version of the luxury saloon in order to maintain its sales success. Changes include new daytime running lights encircling the LED headlights, re-sculpted bumpers to give the model a wider and sportier look. The bonnet now features a central line that runs from the Spirit of Ecstasy statute back to the base of the windscreen. Personalization potential has been increased with more paint and wheel options.

hasn't been created just to look good. It features the latest tech so that the lights swivel with steering inputs and automatically dip when other vehicles approach.

“As a design statement, Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II continues to transcend time,” comments Giles Taylor, Director of Design for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “This is ensured by the deft treatment of features such as the new headlights, the new wake channel on the bonnet and surfacing that lend the car a more dynamic, purposeful stance and hint at the cutting edge technology inside. I am very pleased with the overall sense of design harmony .”

Inside, Ghost Series II is a real combination of luxury, technology and connectivity available thought for the successful entrepreneur on the move. It is packed with onboard technology to ensure it is a calm space for a busy, connected world where business can be made in peace. Its suite of technologies ensures that both business and leisure time in the car are a super-luxurious, effortless experience.

Perhaps one of the most impressive feature is the new Satellite Aided Transmission that uses GPS data to scan the road ahead, making sure the new Ghost is driven in the correct gear in every situation.

The Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II will continue to be powered by the same 570hp V12 petrol engine with 780Nm of torque, coupled with an 8-speed automatic gearbox. Performance remains sharp for a 2740kg short wheelbase luxury limousine. It can reach the 100km/h mark in 4.9s and to a 250km/h limited top speed.
