Rolls-Royce reveals significant engineering advances developed in the new Ghost in the third of four animated films.

12 Aug 2020 | International News : U.K.

In the third of four animated films offering insight into the substance of the new Ghost, Rolls-Royce reveals the highly advanced Planar chassis system with world-first suspension technology.

To fulfil clients' requirements of a motor car being able to offer an impeccable chauffeur-driven experience as well as a vibrant dynamic personality when they chose to drive it themselves, Rolls-Royce's engineering experts rejected the use of a pre-existing platform.

A key development was the Planar system, which is comprised of three elements. The first is an Upper Wishbone Damper unit, which is mounted above the front suspension assembly and creates an even more stable and effortless ride.The second is the Flagbearer system, which uses cameras to read the road ahead and prepare the suspension system for any changes in road surface. The third is a Satellite Aided Transmission, which draws GPS data to pre-select the optimum gear for upcoming corners.

During the engineering design process, new Ghost's chassis and suspension specialists were tasked with regularly presenting the technical advances they had made to other departments, as well as showcasing how these remarkable developments met the client brief. Rolls-Royce has elected to share elements of these internal briefings to demonstrate the engineering substance that underpins this extraordinary new motor car ahead of its official unveiling in late 2020. Watch the third instalment of the series titled Engineering Purity here.
