Spofec, which is Novitec’s arm for exclusively tuning Rolls-Royce models, unveiled a complete tuning package for the new Ghost. Given that the new generation of Rolls-Royce’s entry-level limousine is the sportiest yet, Spofec is offering more power, a redesigned aero, and lowered suspension for those who want to further customize their Ghost.
Starting with the engine, the twin-turbo 6.75-liter V12 now produces 676 hp (504 kW / 685 PS) and 985 Nm (707 lb-ft) of torque thanks to the N-Tronic module plugged in the ECU. This is a healthy increase of 113 hp (84 kW / 114 PS) and 135 Nm (80 lb-ft) compared to the stock version, allowing for a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.5 seconds, 0.3 seconds faster than the standard model.
Top speed remains limited to 250 km/h (155 mph) due to the vehicle’s weight, but for a luxury limo like the Ghost we guess that’s fast enough as it is. There is also a new stainless sport exhaust with active flaps generating a more purposeful sound on demand.
Design-wise, Spofec’s Ghost is definitely less flashy than Mansory’s rival proposal and more discreet in comparison with Spofec’s own tuned Phantom and Cullinan. However, there is still a complete bodykit made of carbon that includes a redesigned front bumper with larger intakes which according to the company don’t only look good but also reduce front-axle lift at high speeds. The kit also comes with custom side sill extensions, new front fenders with integrated air outlets, a rear spoiler lip, and a slightly different design for the lower part of the rear bumper.
What stands out immediately are the 22-inch forged wheels developed in collaboration with Vossen, shod in low-profile tires measuring 265/35 ZR 22 at the front and 295/30 ZR 22 at the back. The sheer size of the wheels is further emphasized by the lowered “Spofec Can-Tronic” air suspension sitting 40 mm (1.6 inches) closer to the ground at speeds up to 140 km/h (87 mph) – above that it reverts to standard ground clearance.
Last but not least, owners can customize the interior according to their liking, which is great for those who purchased a second-hand Ghost and don’t have access to the limitless options coming from the factory. In this specific example, the owner wanted black leather upholstery and shiny black trim matching the dark look of the exterior, with bright orange accents on the seats, dashboard, and central tunnel.
Spofec didn’t announce pricing for their tuned Ghost but we are sure those upgrades won’t come cheap. The Rolls-Royce Ghost starts from $332,500 in the US and that is before you tick any boxes on the long list of optional equipment.
