ROLLS-ROYCE Motor Cars, which has its base in Goodwood, unveiled its new Ghost Extended Wheelbase model for the first time at the 14th Auto Shanghai Motor Show yesterday.

The ultra-luxury saloon is the sixth new model from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, and caters for those who need a little extra space.

It was the first time that a Rolls-Royce has had its world debut in China.

Rolls-Royce chief executive Torsten Müller-Ötvös said: ‘This latest Rolls-Royce is a model of outstanding design and unrivalled luxury.

‘Ghost Extended Wheelbase delivers all the poise and dynamism enjoyed by discerning Ghost owners, with the indulgent experience of an extended wheelbase car.

‘It is the very best of both worlds.

‘This is the first time we have undertaken a world launch of a Rolls-Royce car in China, underscoring the strategic significance of this market and the Asia Pacific region.

‘We expect to build on last year’s record growth.’
