the Rolls Royce Ghost gets a black badge

In India, Rolls Royce unveiled the new Ghost Black Badge and announced that it was immediately taking orders for the premium limousine. The company has not disclosed any fixed cost, stating that the price for each unit will be given to customers at the time of commissioning and will reflect “the very distinct customised needs of customers.”

The Pantheon Grille and the company’s famous Spirit of Ecstasy bonnet ornament are among the darker stylistic accents on the Black Badge. The Black Badge also gets a set of bespoke 21-inch carbon fibre composite wheels with floating hub caps from the company. Customers will be able to choose from up to 44,000’ready to wear’ exterior colour options or commission their own original tint, according to Rolls. The vehicle on display has a Mandarin interior and a Black exterior paint finish.

The interior is a mix of leather and bespoke veneer (dubbed Black Badge Technical Fibre) made up of a black Bolivar foundation with woven carbon fibre and metal-coated thread arranged in a diamond pattern. The chrome brightwork throughout the cabin has a deeper finish, including the dashboard timepiece, which has only the tips of the hands and the twelve, three, six, and nine o’clock markings highlighted.

The Ghost’s 6.75-litre twin-turbo V12 now produces 592 horsepower and 900 Nm, an increase of 29 bhp and 50 Nm over the standard Ghost. The more powerful engine is backed by a re-engineered suspension system with new air springs to reduce body roll in corners and a new exhaust, according to Rolls-Royce. The all-wheel-drive and four-wheel-steering systems have also been updated to emphasise dynamics. A ‘Low’ drive option is new to the Black Badge, and it sharpens engine reactions and gear shifts while also changing the exhaust tone.

In other developments, Rolls-Royce has begun its transition to an electrified lineup with the Spectre, the company’s first customised electric vehicle, which is currently undergoing testing. The company intends to release its first all-electric vehicle by late 2023, with the goal of going completely electric by 2030.
