Rolls-Royce Ghost coming to Saudi Arabia & UAE
Rolls-Royce has launched its new Ghost model in the GCC. It was unveiled in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia as part of a Middle East tour.
The Rolls-Royce Ghost is a full-size sedan, but is smaller and cheaper than the Phantom, and powered by a new 563 hp 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 engine, unique to the model. It is the quickest Rolls-Royce ever built.
After the premiere in Jeddah appearances across the Middle East region will follow over the next three months, with the Ghost set to show up at the third edition of the EXCS International Luxury Motor Show in Riyadh at the end of October. In addition, the Ghost will be seen at Jewellery Arabia exhibition in Bahrain during November and the Kuwait International Automobile Exhibition 2009 in December. The Ghost’s Middle East tour will conclude at the 10th Dubai International Motor Show, held in the UAE sometime in December.
The first Ghost cars will be handed over to customers throughout the Middle East region by the end of December 2009, with a jolly starting price of Dhs 917,000. For more details, read the previous report.
