Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost Unveiled, and it's Marvelous

Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost Unveiled, and it’s Marvelous

Today is truly a glorious day, as today we’ve received two beautiful gifts. Earlier today we talked about the brand new Mercedes-Benz SL, now 100% made by AMG, and now we get to discuss the brand new Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost!

We’re all too familiar with the Ghost, but now we’ve got a “Black Badge” version. What makes a “Black Badge” a Black Badge? The thing to remember, is that a Rolls-Royce Black Badge car is a step above normal Rolls-Royce cars. Normal Rolls-Royce cars…sounds odd doesn’t it? How can Rolls-Royce possibly make their cars even more luxurious than they already are? Well, you’re about to find out. A Rolls-Royce Black Badge car is a whole new level of car that typically adds different looks, better handling and performance, and even more luxury compared to the standard Rolls-Royce range. Due to having so many changes/additions, we’ll start out with looks.

First off, customer have two options when it comes to the exterior paint job; They can either choose one of the 44,000 available colors Rolls-Royce offers or opt for a bespoke paint to sample custom color. 44,000 colors? We didn’t even know that many colors were available. Darker chrome plating accompany the world-famous Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament and Pantheon Grille while the 21″ wheels are Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost specific, made from a Carbon Fiber barrel and include a forged aluminum bond centered to each wheel. Rolls-Royce mentions these wheels are tightened with “aerospace-grade titanium fasteners”. Even the insides of the wheels are designed, containing a new carbon fiber weave that includes metallic fibers to display a “diamond” pattern.

Inside, the front passenger-side of the dash is illuminated via 850+ lights to join the illuminous starlight headliner which if spotted at the right time, will display a shooting star. Seriously, can you get more romantic? It is also well known with Black Badge cars, customers can create their own pattern of the starlight headliner if desired. The Rolls-Royce Infinity symbol is displayed in both the front and rear of the interior while the analog clocks are completely blacked out, in fact only the tips of the watch hands are in chrome so one can actually read the clock. So now we’re getting the picture that a Black Badge Rolls is amazing when it comes to looks and additional luxury, but what about performance?

The Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost uses the same 6.75L V12 we already are familiar with, but it comes with an increase of 29 horsepower and 37 torque. Thus, total power output is 592 horsepower and 664 torque. Sounds like a lot, but keep in mind this type of power is needed in order to get a Rolls-Royce from one place to another! Rolls-Royce also states how they’ve upgraded the air springs to assist and reduce body roll when making more aggressive turns while the braking point in which the brakes grab the tightest, has been increased and pedal distance has become smaller. What this means is you know when you slam on the brakes and your brakes grab the car like no one’s business? Yes, that experience, the distance of the brake pedal in order to achieve that type of stopping has been shortened and the brakes grab quicker due to not having to travel as far. Lastly, Rolls-Royce has implemented a new feature called a “Low” button on the stalk gear shifter. “Low” gives you access to the full 664tq the 6.75L V12 produces, increases the shifting speed of the equipped 8-Speed Automatic Transmission, and opens up the exhaust system just a tad. Overall the performance upgrades are perfectly justified and don’t sacrifice Rolls’ immense luxury in any way, shape, or form.

Black Badge Rolls-Royce vehicles are amazing to see in person and the specs customers have created over the years have shown just what Rolls-Royce is capable of from a design-standpoint. We love the brand new Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost and it would be cool if Rolls made a configurator! Congratulations to Rolls-Royce for constantly expanding their horizons and even perfecting on perfection.
