Rolls-Royce stands for the peak of luxury and power. Black Badge represents even more – and for that the Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge Edition was pushed to the limit. The engineers managed to get 600 hp and a peak torque of 900 Nm (664 ft lb) out of their mighty 6.75 L V12 engine.

According to the manufacturer, key to its potent character is the Architecture of Luxury. By that Rolls-Royce means the all-aluminium space-frame architecture that debuted with Phantom and is still in use with the Ghost Black Badge. This sub-structure is not only supposed to deliver extraordinary body stiffness, but its flexibility and scalability allowed the Ghost to be equipped with all-wheel drive, four-wheel steering and the award-winning Planar Suspension system.

More power for the Ghost Black Badge

As with all products in the marque’s Black Badge portfolio, the ‘Low’ button situated on the gear selection stalk unleashes the cars full suite of technology. This is asserted by the amplification of the engine through an entirely new exhaust system, subtly announcing its potency. All 900NM of torque is available from just 1700rpm (which is quite impressive, even for an engine of this size) and, once underway in Low Mode, gearshift speeds are increased by 50% when the throttle is depressed to 90% (basically a kick down), delivering Black Badge Ghost’s abundant power reserves with dramatic immediacy.

This enables the 2500 kg (5400 lbs) monster to sprint from 0 to 100 (0-62) in just under 5 seconds and reach a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
