Rolls-Royce thinks that it feels its lineup in incomplete, and will be adding ‘one or two more’ models based on the Ghost to round it out.
Torsten Muller-Otvos also notes that the company, while not looking to “chase volume” is seeking to improve upon its sales record, broken last year with 3,538 units. The previous sales record for the ultra-luxury automaker was set in 1978 by the Silver Shadow II, but after a 31 percent hike in deliveries, supported by the Ghost, Rolls-Royce is setting its sights even higher.
China and the U.S. take up a big portion of the sales figures, and Muller-Otvos believes that the new models can put Rolls “closer to “4,000” in sales.
So what’s to come? Look out for a high-performance coupe based on the Ghost to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next March. It’s expected to be lower, shorter, boast a sport-tuned suspension and around 600hp. Be assured that whatever may come, its going to be here to stay, as Rolls-Royce says it doesn’t make any financial sense to create a limited-run model.
