The Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost has arrived in Australia.

The most technologically-advanced Black Badge Rolls-Royce to date, the Ghost is the fourth vehicle in the brand’s line-up to receive the limited-edition treatment, following the Rolls-Royce Wraith coupe, Rolls-Royce Dawn convertible, and Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV.

This edition boasts more power, enhanced styling, and the promise of better handling.

Powering the Ghost Black Badge is the same twin-turbocharged 6.75-litre V12 as the base model, but with an extra 21kW/50Nm. With a peak output of 441kW/900Nm, drive is sent to all four wheels via a reworked eight-speed automatic transmission.

Other modifications include a raised braking bite point, bigger air springs to alleviate body roll, and a new exhaust system.

Standard features include front and rear massage seats, Rolls-Royce Bespoke Audio, Lambswool Footmats, Illuminated Grille, R-R Monogram to all Headrests, 21-inch Carbon Alloy Composite wheels, Picnic tables, Central cool chamber, adaptive cruise control and Park Assistant.

Each vehicle is built to order, however the company has not disclosed how many have signed up for one.

“Enquires are strong and we are pleasantly surprised and delighted with the current order bank. We anticipate this to be one of our better selling vehicles because it offers an alternative to the mainstream,” said a spokesperson for Rolls-Royce.

While the Black Badge is typically aimed at younger buyers, the company says the new model is designed to appeal to all age groups.

“Your typical Black Badge buyer wants to make a statement of style and individuality, but I’ve seen a broad spectrum of age group and it’s 50/50 male, female,” the spokesman said.

The Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost is priced from $745,000 plus on-road costs with a wait time of approximately nine to 12 months.
