If you’re looking for half the world’s supply of carbon fibre and leather you might find it inside the BRABUS 700 Rolls-Royce Ghost. This is an unapologetically arrogant vehicle that promises the famous 1-second of wow while adding more power, luxury, and refinement to one of the world’s finest automobiles. It goes without saying that the factory RR is in a league of its own, but this is a master class backed up by a price tag so extreme that if you have to ask, you can’t afford it. Sir.
How do you improve on the extreme? Rolls-Royce would argue that you can’t – and we tend to agree with them – but in the case of the BRABUS 700, the brand has taken its unapologetic levels of bespoke arrogance to new heights. Starting from the outside, the vehicle is menacing, to say the least. A range of high-end carbon elements such as the BRABUS front lip spoilers as well as the BRABUS rear diffuser give the classic Rolls-Royce design a sporty appearance that is in our eyes, a little overboard for a land yacht. Functional? BRABUS claims they “reduce lift at high speeds for flawless stability and the best possible driving experience.”
In terms of performance, the Twin-turbo 6.75-litre V12 remains with a slight tweak in performance to accomplish 700-horsepower at the engine. Acceleration is brisk with 0-100km/h 4.6 seconds, not earth-shattering, but this is a luxury limo we’re talking about. Torque is upped to 950Nm and put to the tarmac through an eight-speed transmission. You’ll become best friends with your local petrol station thanks to the combined 15.7 l/100km fuel consumption.
On the exterior 22-inch BRABUS Monoblock M “Platinum Edition” forged wheels are a personal favourite of ours thanks to the exclusive “Shadow Chrome” finish that’s gorgeous and fitting to the overall package.
In keeping with the exterior design, BRABUS offers their bespoke, full handcrafted porcelain-coloured ‘Masterpiece’ interior. Square pattern quilting is very tasty as is the black piping on the seats, trim elements, and floor mats.
