Secrets of serenity from Rolls-Royce
The new generation Ghost from Rolls-Royce, UK, promises the ‘Formula of Serenity’, and its engineers have gone to great lengths to deliver luxury silence.
Billed as one of the quietest cars on the road with an unmatched onboard acoustic experience the car has an aluminium spaceframe chassis, offering higher acoustic impedance compared to steel. The floor and bulkhead are double-skinned to further soundproof the cabin.
With approximately 100kg of sound deadening materials, double glazed windows and redesigned air conditioning the engineers then decided the car was too quiet and introduced a bespoke Ghost whisper to reassure users. Watch the video below to learn more.
