Rolls-Royce is busy putting the finishing touches on the all-new Ghost which is expected to be revealed later this year. It will be designed from the ground up and will share nothing but the Spirit of Ecstasy emblem and the umbrellas stored in the door with its predecessor. Apparently, meanwhile, the brand’s engineers are also developing something very interesting as this spy video suggests.
Posted by CocheSpias on Instagram, the video is short and a bit fuzzy, but suggests that Rolls could develop a unique model. This is obviously a heavily camouflaged prototype, and aside from the full body camouflage film, there appear to be a number of fake panels as well.
Considering the huge amount of disguise, we tend to believe that this is not the final shape of the rear. It appears to look like a shooting brake or similar in shape, but we assume that the actual shape under camouflage is very different.
Looking at the recent activities of Rolls-Royce, something tells us that this test car could be linked to the patent images leaked from July of this year. They revealed a modified version of the unique Sweptail and while this prototype doesn’t seem to fit the design very much, it could be an early development vehicle for it.
Of course, there’s also the possibility that it’s a completely different vehicle – a new modified Ghost, perhaps? We know Rolls-Royce has expertise in creating bespoke cars for special customers – take the Sweptail and Hyperion for example, and we won’t be surprised if this example turns out to be something never seen before. by the brand.
Anyway, we are intrigued. We hope to hear more in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
