FIRST LOOK: 2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost, from RM1.45m

If you want the ultimate status symbol for when you’ve really made it in life, you simply can’t go wrong with a Rolls-Royce. The second-generation Ghost that was launched in Malaysia earlier this year is a great place to start, and it’s available here in two versions.

The standard-wheelbase model is priced from RM1.45 million, while the extended-wheelbase model starts from RM1.65 million. These are base prices before taxes and options, and included in the sum is a four-year/unlimited-mileage warranty with the option for an additional two-, three- or five-year ownership packages.

Built on a new bespoke platform, the Ghost packs the automaker’s longstanding 6.75 litre twin-turbo V12 petrol engine that’s taken from the Phantom. It serves up 571 PS and 850 Nm of torque, and is paired with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. This 5.7 metre-long car will do the century sprint in 4.8 seconds.

The Ghost continues to utilise a version of BMW’s iDrive system with twin instrument and infotainment screens, featuring all the latest technologies, including a WiFi hotspot, a 360-degree camera system, a 7×3 head-up display and parking assist. There’s nearly 100 kg of acoustic insulation fitted all around the car, and it rolls in with an 18-channel, 18-speaker, 1,300-watt audiophile-grade sound system as standard.

    When the vehicle itself is more than your total net worth including your entire life savings, EPF and assets.

      Well bro, i guessed it’s just a matter of doin smart investments even during musim PKP.

      Like myself i’ve tripled over my networth since Mac 2020, putted tens of millions into Glove, pharma and ecommerce stocks & riding Bitcoin superboom. My guru Mr. Buffett advice Turning adversity into opportunities… But well the downside of this Rolls-Royce Ghost which also parked on my porch, it is more minimalistic, less ostentatious. Much to my likings
