Rolls-Royce brings Halloween early this year...

The new Ghost is finally in town. Rolls Royce has unveiled the new "Baby Roller" as its affectionately known to the Singaporean public. It may be smaller than the Phantoms in Roll Royce's line, but the figures are not something to be laughed at. This is a Rolls Royce that you would actually want to drive rather than to be chauffeured in.

Its wheelbase measures 3,295mm which is 300mm shorter than the Phantom's, but when you look at it, it still is undeniably huge. The Ghost will haunt other road users with the growl of a 6.6-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine that peaks at 5250rpm with 563bhp, that's more than a Ferrari F430 for crying out loud. And the century sprint is dealt with in just 4.9 seconds.

The new Rolls is full of electronic gadgetry controls, electronic braking, cornering brake control (???), traction control and dynamic stability control just to name a few. And the price, which is the best part, is under S$1 million.. So I guess most of us will be able to afford one; so far at least a dozen customers have placed an order for this baby. It doesn't look as serious as the Phantom yet still retains the quintessential features of a Rolls Royce: intimidating size, powerful engine, impeccable luxury which could only be done by the British. The thing I like most is that brushed, stainless steel bonnet which oozes style on a whole new level.

Well at least we can expect 12 of these Ghosts to be haunting our roads by the second quarter of 2010...
