Well, we can’t really hate on Kim Kardashian or Kanye West for their newest addition to their fleet because we have to admit, this thing looks good.
What we have here is a new, 2015 Rolls Royce Ghost Series 2 which as you can tell by the name is their updated, new model Ghost. If you go for the base model, which we’re sure Kimye didn’t do, you’re coming out of pocket just under the $300,000 mark. With a few options such as 21″ wheels, bespoke paint color, etc, you’ll quickly be approaching the $350,000 mark very quickly. If it’s performance you’re after, you don’t look at this car. You won’t be dusting anybody off the line as 0-60 takes just under 5 seconds, but that’s not what this car is about, is it. This car is supposed to be the pinnacle of luxury. The “creme dela creme” of comfort and attention to detail.
The Rolls-Royce Ghost Series 2 comes with a twin turbo V12 pushing out 563 horsepower and 575 lb-ft. of torque and is dubbed by Rolls-Royce as a “drivers Rolls-Royce”. Even with those impressive horsepower and torque numbers, let’s not forget this behemoth weighs in at over 5,000 pounds. Rolls-Royce says this is the lightest Rolly in their lineup but “light” is a relative term. What’s funny is the fact that only in America are majority of Rolls-Royce customers actually driving their Rolls. Everywhere else in the world a Rolls-Royce is a car you’re driven in, not driving. Hey, hats off to us American’s, we prefer to drive our V12 twin turbo half million dollar cars!
