Rolls-Royce Ghost: caught on camera

Promotional video for the new ‘baby Rolls’ escapes onto the internet. It’s really not very small

You weren't supposed to see this for a few more weeks, but a promotional video for the new Rolls-Royce Ghost has escaped onto the internet and, well, we felt it our duty to pass it on to you.

The Ghost - which will be formally unveiled at the Frankfurt show next month - will be the smallest Rolls in the line-up, but still monumentally quick: it's powered by a turbocharged 6.6-litre V12 producing 563bhp, and will hit 60mph in 4.7 seconds.

Admittedly the video is a slightly cheesy affair, but forgive Rolls its enthusiasm - it's a great chance to see the Ghost out on the road and get a sense of the size of the thing. It's hardly petite, is it?

First impressions, Top Geareans?

Now share it...
