Driving a car a Rolls-Royce is a workout in being seen, but that doesn’t necessarily indicate you need to holler with chrome and elegant wheels. To reinforce that period, Black Badged Rolls Royce Wraith and Ghost will be working Black Badge versions of the Wraith and Cat up the hill at Good wood.
The 465-kW (624-hp) Wraith was already the most powerful Rolls-Royce, but it’s been given a convenient 70 Nm (52 lb-ft) torque boost to 870 Nm (642 lb-ft) for the run up Head of the family March’s driveway. Rolls-Royce engineers have also modified the suspension and transmission to better deal with sporty driving, rendering it easier for driver Justin Rules to hold a show for the Good wood audience.
Like its smaller comparable version, the Ghost has recently been tweaked for sportier generating up the hill at Good wood. Peak power is actually 450 kW (603 hp), a boost of 31 kW (40 hp) as opposed to the standard car, while there’s also 820 Nm (605 lb. ft) of torque available to the Rolls-Royce team call behind the wheel, which is 40 Nm (30 lb-ft) more than before.
All that power is more readily available, thanks a lot to a remapped eight-speed computerized gearbox. On the outside, the Ghost has been granted the same Black Badge Black coloring job and 21-inch tires as the Wraith, even though the Spirit of Ecstasy marker has again been completed in a high-gloss dark to match the dark grille, air intakes and exhaust.
