Rolls Royce needs no introduction! The dream car that everyone wants to own "some day". But only billionaires can afford it!
Businessman Kumar Mangalam Birla has bought a swanky ride for himself in the form of second-generation Rolls Royce Ghost. It was launched in 2020 and its ex-showroom starting price without any customization is Rs 6.95 crore. However, Mr. Birla has gone with the extended wheelbase (EWB) variant that costs around Rs 1 crore more than the standard version which is already massive in size. Hence, he must have paid at-least Rs 9 crore including taxes and insurance to bring luxury supercar on the road.
This means, acres of space and oodles of luxury for the rear passenger. When we searched the RTO vehicle information of the luxury vehicle on CarInfo app, we found that the Rolls Royce Ghost was registered on the name of Kumar Mangalam Birla in the month of March 2021.

The EWB variant of Rolls Royce Ghost is around 170mm longer than the standard trim. On the outside, it looks similar to regular variant but a tad longer. The vehicle is especially targeted for chauffeur driven customers. At 2605 kg, the car is 40 kg heavier than the standard variant.
Ghost EWB is powered by a massive 7.76-litre V12 petrol engine that churns out the maximum power of 563 Bhp and peak torque of 850 Nm. However, the engine configuration is similar to the regular Ghost. Now it uses the newly developed aluminium spaceframe that also underpins the all-new Phantom. It also offer all wheel drive (AWD) system along with rear-wheel steering for nimble handling and smaller turning radius.
EWB version also offers Serenity Seats that offer better cushioning and are wider. Rolls Royce claims that seats offer the comfort that you would experience in a business class jet.
It is also equipped with the latest Champagne refrigerator to ensure you always have a bottled of chilled wine on the go.
It is worth noting that Kumar Mangalam Birla has been using BMW 7-series for quite a long time as his primary commute vehicle. The latest upgrade to EWB Rolls Royce Ghost is both classy and extravagant.
