A sharp-eyed observer managed to catch this virtually undisguised 2010 Rolls-Royce Ghost at the Calais - Dover ferry crossing in England.
Looking nearly identical to 200EX Concept, this production ready prototype shows us what to expect when the Ghost is officially unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. Differences between the concept and production version seem to include colored turn signal indicators, a revised front bumper with a center support, and a slightly modified steering wheel.
Although it is based on the recently introduced BMW 760Li, the new Rolls-Royce Ghost is a tad larger as it measures a massive 5399mm (212.6 inches) in length, 3295mm (129.7 inches) in wheelbase, 1948mm (76.7 inches) in width, and 1550mm (61 inches) in height. Power will come from a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 engine that produces 400 kW (544 hp) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque.
Look for 2010 Rolls-Royce Ghost to start arriving in dealerships early next year with a base price somewhere in the neighborhood of £180,000 (US$257,000).
