As you might know, the Rolls-Royce Black Badge variants are “sporty” variants targeted at wealthy young individuals in their late 30s. The dark-themed cars boast additional horsepower and torque figures compared with their regular counterparts. If you’re one of those who find even those insufficient, especially in the Ghost Black Badge, well, Novitec’s Spofec division has a solution.
The exterior is decorated with a new aerodynamically optimized bumper with optional vertical LED position markers. On the side, you got Spofec rocker panels, and of course, 22-inch Vossen 9-twin-spoke forged rims wrapped with rather low-profile tyres. At the rear, you got a bootlid-integrated spoiler.
A Spofec CAN-Tronic suspension module lowers the ride height by about 40 mm up to a speed of 140 km/h (87 mph), and at higher speeds, the body automatically reverts to the original level.
Novitec will be happy to customize the interior as well, but I guess that’ll be like asking a Michelin star chef to tweak his dish, but then, again, if you’re tweaking a Black Badge’s exterior and engine figures, you might as well do it for the interior.
As for the juicy bits of the story, an N-Tronic plug-and-ply module injects custom maps for injection and ignition, as well as a moderate increase in boost pressure. The output figures are now 519 kW (706 metric hp) and 1002 Nm (739 lb-ft); 78 kW (106 metric hp) and 102 Nm (75 lb-ft) more than the stock. Novitec claims a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of 4.3 seconds, should such things interest you, while the top speed remains electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph) to protect the tyres.
The package also includes a stainless sport exhaust system—with or without visible tailpipes. There’s also an option with active butterfly valves.
