The exquisite Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost began as a small project and in 2019, it has turned into a whole statement for Rolls-Royce. Unleashed with an encore performance, it leaves all other production sedans behind. With more power, more audacity and more spirit, the new Black Badge Ghost, the boldest expression of Rolls-Royce, is crafted for those who will never conform.
As described by Rolls-Royce, the “Darker State of Grace” was inspired by “restless spirits” like Charles Rolls, Sir Malcolm Campbell, and Muhammed Ali. With daring aesthetic, elegant charisma and enhanced performance, it has been named the fastest Ghost ever!
1. Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost exterior: What’s on the outside?
Owners can specify any color they wish for the bodywork – but the new Black Badge Black paintwork compliments the subtle styling to perfection.
Poised at the very cutting edge of styling, technology, and comfort, the Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge competes with the Mercedes-Benz Maybach, BMW 7-Series, and Bentley Flying Spur.
The Black Badge Ghost boasts of darkened chrome elements and carbon fibre composite wheels
Crafted with flowing “yacht lines” and large uninterrupted surfaces, the Ghost II gives us a whole new feel. It is also accented by a classic long hood, short overhang, and powerful flanks. From the front, the eye is drawn towards the sculpted headlights and the tapered “wake channel” on the hood, which arises from the Spirit of Ecstasy's wings.
The Black Badge has unique carbon fiber wheels with a satellite-aided transmission that utilizes GPS data to allow the car to see beyond what the driver sees.

The sleek coach doors open to reveal a super-duper five-passenger cabin.

You would also find a leather upholstered dashboard, leather/genuine wood console insert, chrome, and aluminum interior accents, and aluminum overhead console insert.
The interiors give out a can't-be-more-mysterious vibe
Looking to your left, past the car’s analog clock, you’ll sight the Rolls-Royce infotainment screen. Below it is a plethora of polished chrome switches that control everything you’ll need.
Similar to the Rolls-Royce Phantom Tranquility, when you look up, you’ll see a constellation of stars in the headliner. The floor mats are also made of lambs-wool.

The Black Badge Ghost comes with a 6.6-liter V12 engine
H.R Owen, the primary Rolls-Royce dealer in the UK added:
Although the V12 is tuned for smooth power rather than speed, it seems to just coax the car along the road. This isn’t like an RS5, where a light touch of the gas launches you at the horizon, but because of the quietness and smooth ride, it’s easy to go faster than you intended.
