Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is seeking ensure the new Ghost model delivers peerless riding dynamics by making use of the very latest developments in chassis engineering.

At the heart of the Rolls-Royce Ghost's magic carpet ride will be a state-of-the-art chassis with an intelligent four-corner air suspension system and multi-link aluminum front and rear axles.

Each of the cars dynamic handling and safety systems has been engineered to work together in harmony. Systems such as Active Roll Stabilization, four-corner air springs and Variable Damping Control operate as one, imperceptibly to the driver and passengers, to provide the best comfort for occupants. It will also ensure the tires maintain optimum contact with the road for driving safety, even on rough surfaces.

The new air suspension system is so sensitive it can detect the smallest changes; for example, it will sense the movement of a single rear passenger from one side of the seat to the other, and will compensate accordingly.

The complex on-board computer reads multiple inputs from sensors around the car - the dampers alone making individual load calculations every 2.5 milliseconds. This ensures not only perfect comfort but also precise steering and dynamics for the driver. The air suspension system also incorporates a lift and kneel function, raising or lowering the Ghost by 25mm. This can either assist with entry to the car or allow the Ghost to travel over uneven ground.

In engineering the Ghost, Rolls-Royce has delivered poise, precision and unrivaled comfort. The Ghost will be built on its own dedicated production line at Goodwood, England and will share paint, wood and leather workshops with the Phantom series of cars. Series production will begin
