Spofec Rolls-Royce Ghost gets a subtle makeover with more power
In fact, we are fans of Novitec. The German tuning company has proven to tastefully create aftermarket versions of exotic supercars, without rushing their original designs. We’ve seen the company tune a Ferrari SF90 and Lamborghini Huracan through its low-key routine before, and if there is one tuning company that lives up to the adage “less is more” it would be Novitec.
But what about Rolls-Royce vehicles? Apparently the company has a division for this, and it’s called Spofec. The tuning deities at Spofec are dedicated to amplifying cars with a spirit of ecstasy on the hood, which practically gives the tuning company its name.
The latest creation from Spofec is the latest version of the Rolls-Royce Ghost. In the same vein as its parent Novitec, Spofec gives the Ghost a sober carbon fiber body. The modifications can be found on the larger front air intake, front fenders, side sills and rear spoiler lip.
The tuned Ghost also gets a new 22-inch shoe set, courtesy of Vossen, sporting a Spofec SP2 design with nine pairs of twin spokes, finished in chrome in the press images provided. Associated with the wheels, a CAN-Tronic suspension module is calibrated to work with the new set of wheels. The module also lowers the vehicle by 1.57 inches (40 millimeters) at speeds of up to 87 miles per hour (140 kilometers per hour).
With new mapping for injection and ignition, as well as increased boost pressure, Spofec increased the output of the twin-turbo V12 engine from 6.57 liters to 685 horsepower (504 kilowatts) and a whopping 707 pounds -feet (958 Newton-meters) of torque. The powertrain is paired with a stainless steel sports exhaust designed by Spofec with actively controlled exhaust flaps.
Spofec has not specified the price of this Rolls-Royce Ghost tuning. But knowing the market for this brand, does it need it?
