KYOSHO 2011 Rolls-Royce Ghost
extended wheelbase

The “Little Rolls,” the Ghost, was deemed to be a bit too cramped in the rear compartment, so the Ghost Extended Wheelbase model, with 6.7 inches more leg room for the pay- ing customers in back, was introduced at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. Kyosho has already added this beautifully done model to their ”Rolls-Royce Collection” line; its box, its rapid arrival on the market, and the accuracy and quality of the model suggest it’s a Rolls-Royce-sanctioned promo. All references, including the 39-page Ghost brochure (available online), show that Kyosho has the Ghost’s lines and details – all of them, inside and out – right on the money. The authentic Diamond Black/Silver paint is literally flawless and every last piece of trim is done, in scale, with bright chrome. The characteristic Rolls grille has been given a black wash, and the tiny “Flying Lady” is particularly well done. Surprisingly, the model is LHD, with detail to match the exterior. Upholstery patterns match photos, and the wood-grain panels and interior hardware are all neatly printed. There’s a lot more “wood,” silver-printed trim and knobs, and authentic black-on-white instru- ments on the dash. Chassis detail is molded in high relief with silver-printed heat shields and separate aluminum- colored exhausts. This Brit’s a beauty. — Wayne Moyer
