The inappropriately named Ghost V-Specification

The V-Specification moniker isn’t particularly redolent of Rolls-Royce, not least because it’s bound to be shortened to V-Spec - and that instantly brings to mind a special Nissan GT-R.  However, maybe such a faux pas can be partly forgiven after considering the cars that lie beneath the name.

Available to order from now until June this year, the Ghost V-Specification and Ghost Extended Wheelbase V-Specification are limited production models that boast several appealing features.

These begin under the bonnet, where the 6,592 cc twin-turbo V12 engine has had its power raised from the usual 563 bhp (420 kW / 570 PS) to 593 bhp (422 kW / 601 PS). Peak torque, which arrives at just 1,500 rpm, is still 780 Nm (575 lb/ft).

Surprisingly, the official performance figures are also unchanged despite that extra output: the 0-62 mph (100 km/h) sprint takes 4.9 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h).

Exterior tweaks include a set of rather extravagant part-polished 21” alloy wheels and some bespoke hand-painted coachlines along the bodywork.

The interior enjoys a unique dashboard clock plus contrast piping and stitching for the leather upholstery. Completing the package is a distinctive ‘V’ motif that adorns the rear central armrest, doorsill tread plates and multimedia screen cover.
