LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Adding a premium touch of luxury chauffeured class to LCT’s trade show, Rolls-Royce is aiming to impress operators with the 2012 Rolls-Royce Ghost EWB Ghost Extended Wheelbase.
The Ghost EWB is the latest Rolls-Royce in the company’s 107-year history of pinnacle luxury cars, and it’ll be front and center at the 2012 International LCT Show in Las Vegas on Feb. 13-15. The most premium of luxury sedans is being brought to the Show in cooperation with BMW of North America, which is displaying its first ever BMW luxury sedans ready for the chauffeured transportation market.
The Rolls-Royce Ghost is a model of outstanding design and unrivalled luxury, with ride and handling credentials underpinned by refined engineering expertise. Ghost EWB delivers all the poise and driving dynamics enjoyed by discerning Ghost owners, with the indulgent rear seat experience of an extended wheelbase car.
Hand-built in Goodwood, England, Ghost EWB is striking and agile. Its capacious interior comes courtesy of a 219.3-in. length and 136.4 in. wheelbase. Legroom is significantly enhanced over Ghost, with knee-room more than doubled from 6.3 in. to 13-in. It provides additional space and comfort for rear seat passengers at least as much as experiencing the car’s dynamic performance.
Discretion comes as standard in Ghost EWB. Passengers relax in lounge seats covered in sumptuous leather, seated behind the C-pillar to heighten the sense of privacy. The seat’s slight curve allows those inside to turn more easily to face each other, creating a convivial environment to chat informally or in which to do business.
A theater configuration is available as an option, allowing all settings that do not directly affect the driver to be controlled and accessed from the rear seat.
Functions are displayed on two 9.2 inch LCD screens in front-seat backs; these can be angled to suit the viewer and are managed via a central rotary controller mounted on the armrest. Passengers can activate climate control regulating the temperature of the air on their side of the car.
