Rolls-Royce reveals the final name for RR4: Ghost

Rolls-Royce has been generating its baby for quite a while. Initially codenamed RR4, it has made its first public appearance as the 200EX Concept. Now, at the Shanghai Auto Show, the British company has decided to make the choice of the baby's name public. We may start getting used to call it Ghost.

The future Rolls-Royce Ghost will certain retain the same measures of the concept, or else, it will be a 5.40 m long, 1.95 m wide, 1.55 m tall and will be powered by a brand new V12 engine created by BMW. The Ghost, in fact, will be heavily based on the new BMW 7 Series, although its platform is said to be completely different. Even if it not, this is something Rolls-Royce would have to say in order to clients not to feel fooled when buying the new car. With an expected price tag of 180,000 pounds, 200EX production version has to be a true Rolls-Royce.

Sales are expected to take place by the first quarter of 2010, with an official presentation of the Ghost at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. Production will start at the end of 2009. With a production line all of its own, Ghost will share painting, wood and leather trim with Phantom.
