Rolls Royce Ghost EWB to Debut in 2011
Rolls Royce Ghost EWB
 Rolls Royce expects to roll out its Ghost Extended Wheelbase, or EWB, in the first half of 2011. It is expected to be at least 10 inches longer than the regular Ghost and is to be priced in the range of 200,000 to 300,000 Euros. The Ghost EWB will be powered by a BMW-sourced 6.6 liter V12 engine that can provide 563 hp and a peak torque of 575 lb-ft.
Further, power will be transmitted to the wheels via an eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox. The car is also expected to go from 0-60 mph in around five seconds or less as well as clock in a top speed of 155 mph.
Initially heard of at the 2006 Paris motor show, the Ghost marks a new line of cars for Rolls Royce that is anticipated to etch a new luxury niche presently catered to by Bentley, Mercedes-Benz, and BMW. The car reveals an altogether different style that mixes modern and traditional looks and has been designed as a smaller, more measured, more realistic car than the Phantom, aiming for a lower price category for Rolls Royce models.
