Speaking with CarAdvice today, Rolls-Royce Asia Pacific's spokesperson, Hal Serudin, confirmed the Ghost EWB's timing.
"We are pleased to announce that the Ghost Extended Wheelbase will launch in Australia in March of 2012," said Mr Serudin.
It is powered by a twin-turbo 6.6-litre V12 which produces 420kW and a healthy 780Nm, all running through the ultra-smooth ZF eight-speed automatic. The EWB gains an additional 170mm of rear legroom, and was built in response to the region's demand for a Ghost with even easier access through the rear doors. It only weighs an extra 35kg over the standard Ghost.
It will arrive in Australia with a price tag of around $750,000.
