Rolls-Royce has drawn the curtains on the Black Badge Ghost in Southeast Asia. According to the brand, the new model is the ‘purest’ and most ‘technologically advanced’ Black Badge expression to date.
In terms of updates, the Black Badge Ghost features a host that will pique the interest of Rolls-Royce fans. The new model uses the same 6.75-liter biturbo V12 engine as its predecessor, but has been beefed up to generate 592 hp and 900 Nm of torque. It also allows the Black Badge Ghost to go from 0 to 100 km / h in just 4.7 seconds. If you think that’s unspectacular, keep in mind that we are talking about a 2.5 ton vehicle.
The transmission and throttle have also been redesigned so that drivers can expect greater urgency and immediacy in the Black Badge Ghost’s power delivery. It is touted to deliver the full 900Nm torque from just 1700rpm.
Customers will be able to select from 44,000 Rolls-Royce ‘ready-to-use’ colors when designing their car, however there is also the option to create a completely unique custom shade. However, the brand has shared that a large majority of its clientele for this particular model have opted for the Black firm, which uses 45kg of paint in total. Rolls-Royce says this is the “darkest black” in the auto industry, hand-polished by a team of four artisans.
The Spirit of Ecstacy and Pantheon Grille have received updates, with a blacked out chrome electrolyte. To wrap things up around the outer front, the Black Badge Ghost also has 21-inch compound wheels, designed specifically for this model.
In typical Rolls-Royce style, no expense has been spared for the interior of the Black Badge Ghost. The materials used here speak more of a calm confidence than an open statement. Wood elements such as black Bolivar form the base layer, complementing other materials such as resin-coated charcoal and metal-coated thread. Overall, the aesthetic is true to the Rolls-Royce design philosophy for the Black Badge Ghost: “Post Opulent”.
The Black Badge Ghost is available to order now, starting at S $ 1,468,888 (excluding COE).
