ROLLS-ROYCE GHOST COUPE: It will be the brand's fastest ever car.

Relevant offers

Rolls-Royce is aiming its new Ghost coupe at the increasingly high-powered cars launched by BMW, Benz, Audi, Bentley and Aston Martin, and the car will be the fastest production Rolls ever built.

The two-door four-seater will be powered by a tuned version of the Ghost sedan's twinturbo 6.6-litre V12 and will be expected to have 450 kW plus on tap working through a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission driving the rear wheels.

The Ghost coupe is shorter than the sedan by about 200mm and has a 60-70mm lower roofline.
