Science of Silence

How Rolls-Royce is making the next-generation Ghost whisper quiet.

While most of us rattle around in our cars, the experience of travelling in a Roller, even at high speed, is rather different. No other manufacturer builds vehicles quite like Rolls-Royce. The iconic manufacturer's ultra-luxury motorcars have always been known for their unfathomable refinement, and that's still true today, thanks to the firm's Formula for Serenity.

The upcoming Ghost, which will wear a minimalist, "post-opulence" design theme, should be one of the most hushed cars in the world, with a sumptuous interior that's likely quieter inside at triple-digit speeds than leafing through a newspaper at breakfast.

This 3 minute video provides an insight into the obsessive engineering that creates a vehicle that's as silent as a shadow.
