Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II New Delhi (2)

While some of us were just out of college at that age, some already working but still broke by the middle of the month. Paras Gupta, a 22-year old New-Delhi resident has earned the trophy for being the youngest owner of a Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II. Talking about his new toy, he says, “The car is quite a hit in my social circle of young entrepreneurs who are raring to go. A few of them, who had the privilege of driving the car, is keen on acquiring it one day.” Apparently, Paras is the director of Mother’s Pride, a pre-school chain that has outlets across north India and Mumbai, that was first established by his mother Sudha Gupta.

Paras comes from a family which has a penchant for the high life, as, before the Ghost, his earlier ride used to be a BMW X5. His brother shares his passion for wheels too and drives a Maserati and a Mercedes E63. Other rides in the family garage include a Land Cruiser V8, a Mercedes S 350, a Range Rover Evoque and a Prado.

The Rolls Royce Ghost Series II is a mid-life refreshed version that gets some tweaks over the previous model. The Ghost Series II receives LED DRLs in a new shape, newly designed front and rear bumpers, larger intake and refreshed turn signal indicators. The traditional Spirit of Ecstasy now tilts slightly forward. It also sports a new paint scheme and an all-new alloy wheel design. Mechanically, the Ghost Series II remains similar to the outgoing version. So, the Ghost Series II comes with a 6.6-litre twin turbocharged V12 engine that puts out 563 bhp of power and 780 Nm of torque. The V12 is mated to the same 8-speed ZF automatic transmission that was found on the previous model. This ultra-luxury car accelerates from nought to 60 mph in 4.9 sec (0-100 km/h 5.0 sec) and has a governed top speed of 155 mph / 250 kph. Rolls Royce has also equipped the Ghost Series II with new rear axle bearings, revised struts and wheel dampers.
