Mansory Rolls-Royce Ghost
The new Rolls-Royce Ghost is a pretty impressive vehicle but over-the-top exotic auto tuner Mansory apparently felt it could benefit from a whole bunch of gold. Debuting at the Geneva Motor Show, the ritzy Rolls is designed to combine "the most precious materials with elaborate performance, individual appearance and stylish interior refinements." The car is first painted deep blue and then gold varnish is applied to the cross-beam in the new front skirt, the vertical gill between the headlights, various bits of trim and the modified radiator grill, capped by gold wheels. New stainless steel sheeting, a rear spoiler and rear skirt and a double sport exhaust system sum up the rest. Power has been boosted from the stock 570 hp all the way up to 720 hp, with torque tweaked to 1,020 Nm up from 780 Nm. That means it's only 0.5 seconds quicker to 62 mph, but the top speed now clocks in at 192 mph. Inside there's diamond quilted leather and an odd mix of carbon fiber and bamboo wood accents illuminated by a galaxy of LEDs.
