Rolls-Royce has released a promotional video of the new Ghost in pre-production form. Driven by product manager Dan Balmer, the car appears smooth and composed in contrast to performance figures attributed to it.

What we see on this promotional video clip is Rolls-Royce's next biggest seller. The Ghost will be RR's smallest model in the range. Product Manager Dan Balmer takes us through a short ride in the exclusive super luxury car. The pre-production unit looks immaculate especially with that aluminium-covered bonnet. Balmer is all smiles as he explains how the Ghost produces supercar figures but is much more comfortable than those types of cars.

Rolls-Royce will officially unveil it at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show in just over a month's time. Some engine details already available: 6.6-litre turbocharged V12 making 420kW (571hp) and peak torque of 780Nm. It is coupled to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission and 0 - 100km/h is achieved in 4.9 seconds and 0 - 60mph in 4.7 seconds.
