The Ghost has evolved. The Rolls-Royce Ghost, that is. Christened the Series II – the same naming convention used for the updated Phantom flagship – the junior Rolls-Royce debuted at the ongoing 2014 Geneva Motor Show with minor enhancements both inside and out.

Plain to see are the redesigned headlights, now infused with LED daytime running lights, which are meant to make it look more distinctive from the front. It certainly works, unless you park it next to a Chrysler 300. Other changes include a new ‘wake channel’ behind the Spirit of Ecstasy and a re-sculptured front bumper.

Inside, the Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II gains a few tech upgrades, including on-board Wi-Fi and Satellite Aided Transmission (SAT). The latter was introduced on the Wraith coupe, and uses GPS data to study and anticipate appropriate gearchanges to suit the upcoming road geometry and driving style.

The user interface and navigation system have been updated as well, and now features a BMW iDrive-like touch-sensitive Spirit of Ecstasy Rotary Controller. An optional Bespoke Audio system is also available, in case you want to play music over the unchanged 563 hp/780 Nm 6.6 litre twin-turbo V12 engine.
