The next-generation Rolls-Royce Ghost has been spied again, but this latest prototype is wearing less disguise than earlier vehicles.

Unlike the prototype photographed back in June, this car doesn't seem to be wearing any false panels, meaning we have our first look at the new Ghost's front fascia.

This vehicle also seems to be using production-ready headlights and tail-lights. As with the current car, the next-generation Ghost will have a slightly sportier take on the company's styling theme.

While the boot has a steeper rake than today's car, the new model retains the brand's signature reverse-hinged rear doors.

The new Ghost is thought to be based on the same aluminium-intensive architecture used for the larger Phantom and Cullinan crossover.

Power should come from a version of the company's 6.75-litre twin-turbo V12, which in the Phantom is tuned to deliver 420kW of power and 900Nm of torque.

Earlier spy photos revealed the new Ghost will have a wide touchscreen infotainment system placed in the middle of the dashboard.

As before the dashboard has an upright design and shiny metal vents. The odds of hectares of wood and leather also being present are vanishingly short.
