Rolls-Royce reveals 'Science Of Serenity', the final animated film offering insight into the substance of new Ghost goes live.

19 Aug 2020 | International News : U.K.



When reviewing client feedback from the first Goodwood Ghost, it was clear that its cocooning, near-silent acoustic properties were of the utmost importance. Therefore, in creating new Ghost, the marque's team of acoustic specialists were obsessively focussed on this highly complicated engineering task.

To achieve a sense of absolute serenity, every component was obsessively interrogated for its acoustic properties. Those that produced unacceptable levels of noise were discarded and completely redesigned at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, West Sussex, to better serve the client's desire for serenity.

However, upon early testing the acoustic team discovered that removing all noise was disorientating. Their solution was to create a 'whisper' - a soft undertone that clients experienced as a single, subtle note. To achieve this, each component had to be tuned to a specific resonant frequency. This task included the creation of acoustically tuned damping units for the seat frames, as well as a suite of ports between the cabin and the large 500-litre boot to ensure the low frequency it generated was consistent with new Ghost's 'note'.

The marque's experts named this exhaustive process the Formula for Serenity. Following its creation, these specialists presented the acoustic advances they had made, showcasing how these remarkable developments would serve the demands of new Ghost clients. 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 final animated film of the series titled Science of Serenity here.
