The Rolls Royce Ghost Series II has been spotted on Indian roads ahead of it’s expected launch in November 2014 or by the end of this year. The vehicle was first showcased at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year and is basically a facelifted version of the Ghost with redesigned headlamps and a new gearbox.
The vehicle pictured here is probably a preview vehicle used by Rolls Royce for prospective customers ahead of it’s launch in November. Prices haven’t been disclosed as of now but the Rolls Royce Ghost Series II is expected to cost around Rs. 2.5 crores (estimated ex-showroom price).

The Ghost Series II features minor updates to the front, the most prominent change being the headlamps which get daytime running lights surrounding the main projector units. The front air intakes get a touch of chrome with reworked front bumpers and the bonnet gets a wake line connecting the spirit of ecstasy to the windscreen. The car also features a slightly updated infotainment system, on-board WiFi and an optional bespoke audio system designed specifically for the Rolls Royce Ghost Series II.
Mechanically speaking the Rolls Royce Ghost Series II gets a new GPS aided 8 speed gearbox like the one seen on the Rolls Royce Wraith. The gearbox utilises the on-board GPS and Maps services to study the road ahead and pre-selects the gear for smoother torque delivery and better fuel efficiency. The engine remains the same though, a 6.6-litre V12 producing 530 BHP and 730 Nm torque with a restricted top speed of 250 KMPH.
The vehicle will be launched in India some time in November according to reports, with customers being treated to exceptionally high levels of luxury and customization, as is expected of any Rolls Royce model. The Ghost Series II will compete with the Bentley Continental Flying Spur.
