The "Ghost" nameplate, named in honour of the Silver Ghost that was first produced in 1906, was announced in April 2009 at the Auto Shanghai show. Designed to be a smaller, "more measured, more realistic car" than the Phantom, aiming for a lower price category for Rolls-Royce models, and officially unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. In 2014 Rolls Royce introduced the updated Series II Ghost at the Geneva Motor Show.
Visual changes over the Series I Ghost include re-sculpted headlights, and unbroken daytime running lights. The Series II also gained a tapered ‘wake channel’ on the bonnet, emanating from the Spirit of Ecstasy’s wings. Chrome inserts were added to the front air intakes, which had been enlarged so as to feed more cooling air to the front brakes. The bumpers were also subtly revised, while the side character line Rolls-Royce calls a "waft line" was slanted further forward. On the inside, Rolls-Royce fitted re-designed front seats, and re-angled the rear seats so as to allow for easier communication with other passengers. The clock fascia and instrument dials gained polished metal chaplets that evoke premium watch design. Natural grain leather could now be fitted to the A and C pillars, and two new veneers became available.
