Remember how I said information on the all-new Rolls-Royce Ghost V-Specification was not confirmed? Well, it turns out a press release hit the wires.
I also spoke to some Rolls-Royce staff members and they have confirmed that the marque will not have a presence at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS).
Look for them to appear in New York.
Rolls-Royce's press release follows:
ROLLS-ROYCE MOTOR CARS ANNOUNCES GHOST V-SPECIFICATION
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is delighted to announce the launch of Ghost V-Specification, a limited series of Ghost and Ghost Extended Wheelbase motor cars that will be available for customers to commission from January to June 2014.
"This limited series celebrates one of Ghost's defining characteristics; the exquisite 6.6 litre Rolls-Royce V12 engine," said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. "Since its introduction in 2009 an extraordinary marriage of assured presence and remarkable driving dynamics has endeared Ghost to a new generation of highly discerning businessmen and women, ensuring the car's position as the statement of choice for a growing band of successful entrepreneurs around the world."
At the heart of the Ghost's driving experience is its hallmark V12 engine. Acceleration is delivered with a characteristic immediacy and smoothness, propelling occupants from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds with 80% of power available from idle. This unique powertrain is celebrated with a 30bhp / 22kw power increase on all Ghost V-Specification motor cars.
Elegantly applied design touches hint at Ghost V-Specification's inherent dynamism.
V-Specification motif coachlines finish the exterior paint-scheme whilst customers can either choose from five specially selected exterior colours, or from Rolls-Royce's 44,000 hue palette. Optional visible chrome exhausts and 21" part-polished wheels add further expression to the car's dynamic promise.
The V-Specification motif is echoed around the car's handcrafted interior through engraving to the treadplates, embroidery to the rear armrest and hand-applied steel inlays to the front multimedia screen lid. The interior is completed with an exclusively designed clock with a black crown surrounding the face.
