ROLLS ROYCE BLACK BADGE
If you’re unfamiliar with the name, the Black Badge isn’t a model to begin with. Instead, it’s a special edition line for a trio of Rolls Royce vehicles including the Ghost, Wraith, and Dawn.
As its name would suggest, the Black Badge is nothing other than a blacked-out version of a conventional model that’s available at an extra price. Before further dissecting what the BB brings to the table, other than a more menacing look and 16 coats of hand-painted black, let’s consider it from an investment perspective. Rolls Royces are already as rare as they come, and these special edition models are even further limited to roughly 15 percent of total production per model. That should doubtlessly increase their value as they mature, so what’s an additional $45,000 for a $310,000 Wraith, for instance, when it could potentially make you double that a decade down the line?
Every Black Badge Rolls Royce takes at least 70 hours of hand-work to complete. Apart from a mandatory black paint job, Black Badge models come with lots of high-gloss chrome. They also feature unique dark interiors of which the Ghost’s Tailored Purple and Black two-tone option really stands out. A $9,175 bespoke audio system is also a part of the package, and so are 21-inch jet-black carbon-fiber composite wheels and a glossy black Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament.
The wheels themselves took four years to develop and are made out of no less than 22 layers of carbon-fiber cloth. Performance is another one of the Black Badge’s strong suites. Although BB models share the same 6.6L twin-turbo BMW V12s as conventional units, they make more power than their colorful siblings. The Ghost makes 604 hp instead of 562 hp, the
Dawn generates 593 hp instead of 563 hp, while the BB Wraith produces the same 623 horsepower as a conventional unit, albeit by throwing in additional 52 lb-ft of torque. All three units also receive a special version of the 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox.

ROLLS ROYCE GHOST; A TASTE OF THE SILENT WORLD
The Rolls Royce Ghost is a British full-size luxury car manufactured by Rolls Royce motor cars. The GHOST name plate was named after the silver Ghost, a car first produced in 1906 and it was announced in April 2009 at the Auto shanghai show.
The Rolls Royce Ghost is a typical contrast to the Wraith as this model projects the angelic side of a fiercely powered machine. In other words, despite the Rolls standard, the Ghost is out there to ascertain its name through its almost unnoticeable presence. The Ghost is a typical ‘motor car’ though a luxurious one, but its owner is going to be the type that does not love the crowd eyes whenever he is passing, with which we can say riding all along without being noticed like the real Ghost.
Not surprising that for a company concerned with luxurious attainment, an extra ordinary piece of elegance in integrity coated in the simplest art of technology. This 2018 Ghost benefits from a striking English exterior and an interior in artic, with a combination which exudes a tasteful sophistication. One of the defining features of the Ghost series II is the tapered ‘wake channel’ on the hood, running from the spirit of ecstasy emblem to the windshield. This line evokes a jet vapor trial of wake of a luxury yacht, which hints at the car’s dynamism and offers a sleek contrast to the car’s stately posture.
Powered by a stunning bi-turbo 6.6liter V12 with a 563hp, weighing 605pound feet of torque. We may say because the Rolls company intends for the Ghost to go unnoticed actually didn’t perfect the piece to reach its limits, but for a heavily fortified luxury coupe as the Ghost, a 4.7seconds for a 0-60mph isn’t that much encouraging.
The 2018 Ghost is focused on elegance, the hastily famous spirit of ecstasy mascot sitting proudly on the bonnet of the Rolls Royce Ghost, disappearing into the radiator when the car is locked. It can be operated manually or automatically, unlike in the Phantom, which has a dedicated button in the glovebox, the control for the Ghost mascot is hidden within the iDrive. The rear hinge back doors are another design inherited from the Phantom, as they work beautifully, both practically and aesthetically.
Opening the magically balanced rear door of the Ghost, you get the true picture of your pockets. The Rolls who always make their existence known, has fully proven their interior their selling point. Furnished with a handcraft in Goodwood England to stand the test of time, enhanced with sensory pleasure that brings beauty to every moment. Also, a quiet cabin at speed, delivers a magical ride quality, lambswool carpet that encourages passengers to go barefoot, and leather so buttery soft. Not also forgetting the Mandarin orange leather accents that picks up the pin strumming hue and bright indoors, lovely bright work of polished stainless steel.
A custom audio system which comes with an additional $10,000 to its initial price feels like an exercise in opulence as one rolls down the road, though equipped with some slightly
updated tech such as the rotary controllers (front and back). Maintaining a quiet silent interior, compared to the Phantom as the 2018 machine is lower, costlier and less sedate but a remarkable feature is the spacious liberty you get behind the wheels.
Designed to be particularly an owner driven luxurious train, the Ghost ability to recline the rear seat further will surely be commended by all. The Ghost comes with an Adaptive LED headlight, DVD players and massaging seats, a 360 degree camera system, a starlight headlining and numerous safety techs.
The 2018 Rolls Royce Ghost is a far cry from the original but part of the reason you might consider buying one is the promise of unparalled serenity on the move behind the wheel or behind the driver. With a starting price of $394,525 your dreams are coming to actualization.
