The Rolls-Royce motor company has announced it is reviving one of its famous old names for its new model which was previously known as the RR4 or the baby Rolls. The entry level sedan from Rolls-Royce will be called the Rolls-Royce Ghost. The Ghost measures an outstanding 5.4 meters in length.
Production of the 6.6-litre, 8 speed gearbox vehicle will begin at Rolls-Royce’s plant at Goodwood, West Sussex, later this year. The production-ready car will be shown at this year’s Frankfurt motor show.
The Ghost name was used by the company between 1906 and 1925, with nearly 8,000 cars of that name produced, most of them at the Rolls’ headquarters in Derby.
