Rick Ross is the proud owner of the Maybach 57

Rick Ross

William Leonard Roberts II, known by his professional name as Rick Ross is the proud owner of the Maybach 57, touted as among the fastest luxury cars today. The rapper-actor reportedly paid a total price of US$430,000 for his Maybach 57. It’s not known why Rick Ross chose the Maybach 57 for his use. Perhaps he was attracted by the rear-seat DVD entertainment system or maybe he likes to feel the thump of the 21-speaker Bose premium sound system in his Maybach. He also has a Bentley Continental and a Rolls-Royce Ghost to round out the luxury segment of his fleet. Whatever the reason is, Rick Ross always likes to share the good life and invest in his car collection which also included an Aston Martin DB7 and a customized Lamborghini Murcielago LP640-4 Roadster. The latter is reportedly bought for around US$210,000.

Rolls Royce Ghost vs Rolls Royce Wraith

Rolls Royce Ghost vs Rolls Royce Wraith

The Rolls Royce Ghost is a full-size luxury car manufactured by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. The car
was given the nameplate “Ghost” in honor of Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, the car first produced in
1906. Its production has been underway since 2009 with Andreas Thurner and Charles Coldham
being the lead designers. The Ghost adopts a 4-door saloon body style.

Rolls-Royce Wraith on the other hand is based on Ghost’s architecture but has been transformed into a 2 – door coupe grand tourer. It also adopts most of its platform from the BMW F01.
Production has been underway since 2013 with Pavle Trpinac as its chief designer.

Rolls Royce Technical specifications:

Rolls Royce Performance Statistics
Rolls-Royce Ghost can accelerate from 0 – 60 mph (97 km/h) in just 4.7 seconds. It has a top
speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). Wraith is slightly faster, doing the 0 – 60 mph in less than 4.6
seconds, with a top speed electronically limited to 260 km/h. It has a combined cycle fuel
consumption of 10.2 kilometers per liter.
Rolls-Royce Ghost has a 2960 kg gross weight, which is 150 kg more than Rolls-Royce Wraith.

Rolls Royce Engine Data
The Ghost feature a 6592 cc V12 twin turbo engine that can deliver 562 hp (419 kW) at 5250
rpm and 780 Nm (575 lb-ft) torque at 1500 rpm. This power plant, codenamed N74B66 is a
modified version of the BMW N74 V12 engine. The wright uses the same 6592 cc V12 twin
turbo engine but delivers an extra 61 hp and 20 Nm torque both at 5600 rpm and (1500 – 5500)
rpm respectively.

Transmission
Rolls Royce Wraith uses an 8-speed ZF 8HP90 automatic transmission which falls short to the
ZF 8-speed PRNDLTronic “satellite aided transmission” adopted in Ghost’s latest models. With
this state of the art technology on its series II models, the vehicle uses GPS data, driver driving
style and road condition analysis to select the most appropriate gear ratio.
Ghost finds pleasure in its old rear wheel drive platform and is yet to feature the All-Wheel
Drive system adopted by Rolls-Royce Wraith.

Interior design
Ghost has a new and more comfortable seats. The infotainment system is featuring BMW’s latest
technology. The soft natural grain leather upholstery interior is impressive. The small rear
windscreen doesn’t offer impressive visibility, but this is, however, compensated by the huge
front door mirrors which provide exceptional rear view. There is plenty of leg room, head room
and the boot is more spacious than the Rolls-Royce Wraith. The Wraith’s interior comfort has
been spiced, however, by the wood trims, dyed leather and chrome fittings.

Exterior design
Rolls-Royce Ghost now has newly redesigned advance and adaptive LED headlights and
daytime running lights. More sweeping lines at the bottom of the Pantheon grilles graces the
front appearance of the vehicle. It has adopted Phantom’s rear-hinged back-doors which makes
access to the back seats simpler.

They are equipped with the same front and rear ventilated disc brake systems and 19-inch and
20-inch forged alloy wheels in Ghost and Wraith respectively.

Steering and Suspension system
They are both equipped with double wishbone front axle and multi-link rear axle, front and rear
suspension systems. The Ghost uses an electric power steering system but Rolls-Royce opted for
a hydraulic power steering for the Wraith.

Dimensions
Rolls-Royce Ghost has an extended wheelbase and length of 3465 mm and 5569 mm
respectively when compared with Wraith’s wheelbase and length of 3112 mm and 5268 mm.
They both, however, maintain widths off 1948 mm.
