At the 2012 Bangkok Motor Show, British luxury car manufacturer Rolls-Royce is also taking part to show off four amazing high quality cars. Three standard wheelbase Ghost and one Phantom Drophead Coupe were sitting at the booth calmly. According to a local newspaper from Bangkok, the British luxury brand has already received a booking for Rolls-Royce Ghost during the VIP Day on 26th March. The Ghost is priced at more than 23 million (~US$750,000) in the country. It shows that there is a market for Rolls-Royce in the Kingdom and the British carmaker made a wise decision to show off at the show.

The Ghost is powered by a 6.6-liter V12 twin turbo engine generating 563 bhp (420 kW/570 PS) and a maximum torque of 780 Nm (575 lb ft) from 1,500 rpm. The car is capable to propel from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.9 seconds. What is even amazing is the eight-speed automatic ZF gearbox that gives an infinite first gear. This is what separate Rolls-Royce from other performance cars.
