2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge design

The Rolls-Royce Ghost is a very important model for the British marque, striking a balance between being chauffeur driven for business, but also driven by its owners for pleasure. More potent Black Badge cars have given a little bit more thought to the latter, and now it’s the turn of this latest Ghost model.

Visually, the car retains its sophisticated look and signature Rolls-Royce traits. A large upright grille announces its arrival, but much of the car’s brightwork is now finished in black for a more sporting look. New 21-inch alloy wheels fill its arches and also feature a dark tone.

2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge interior and infotainment

The 2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge’s cabin is as opulent as you’d expect from a manufacturer with this sort of reputation for excellence. High-quality materials and handcrafted details make this space truly special. This model hosts darkened chrome and carbon can be had in place of more traditional wooden materials. Of course, Rolls-Royce are willing to create a more bespoke interior should you desire.

A widescreen display provides all of your entertainment needs and runs a slick operating system. It’s easy to use, logically laid out, and based on BMW’s excellent iDrive – one of the best pieces of software in the business. Also, expect the usual Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge practicality and boot space

The rear cabin provides plenty of space for passengers to relax and enjoy the near-silent nature of their new car. You can have reclining seats that heat, cool, and massage you into a state of bliss. Screens can also be fitted to allow for work to be down on the move or to provide more entertainment for longer trips.

A surprisingly large boot opening grants you access to 507-litres of cargo capacity, something that happily accommodates luggage for trips away. It is usefully larger than the boot found on the Bentley Flying Spur.

2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge engine

As mentioned, this is the most powerful Rolls-Royce Ghost to date, meaning that its twin-turbocharged 6.75-litre V12 engine now produces 592bhp. Torque is also up to a colossal 900Nm.

Rolls-Royce has yet to publish any performance figures for the Black Badge, but expect it to be a smidge faster than the standard 0-62mph sprint of 4.8 seconds.

Alterations to the air springs, throttle mapping, and rear-wheel steering system aims to make this big car handle a little sharper. Rolls-Royce isn’t trying to compromise on its civility, instead just give it a hint of athleticism.

2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge prices and on-sale date

As you can imagine, a Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge does not come cheap and commands a considerable premium over the standard car. However, if you’re in the market for one of the finest automobiles on the road, head to your local dealership with £325,000 in hand.

You can order the latest Black Badge model right now with deliveries expected in early 2022.
