Rolls-Royce has released details of the 2013 Ghost, revealing a number of small changes designed to refine the experience the car provides.

Among them is a revised audio system with a more powerful amplifier and ‘exciter’ speakers integrated into the leather headlining. It effectively raises the apparent centre of the sound closer to the listener’s ear level.

Another feature new to the Ghost is called Comfort Access. When the car’s key is close to the car the boot opening mechanism is primed, and simply moving a foot underneath the centre of the rear bumper then opens the boot lid. Similar systems have already been seen on more affordable cars from mainstream manufacturers.

Buyers will expect high degrees of personalisation and will not be disappointed with the 44,000 exterior paint choices. There is a new forged alloy wheel option for 2013 as well.

The rear doors are still rear-hinged and the interior finishes include the finest soft, natural grain leather and cross-banded wood veneers. The model took inspiration from the Bespoke Ghost Six Sense collection seen earlier this year.

Next year’s model is being produced now, with prices as yet unconfirmed but expected to rise slightly.
