Rolls-Royce is considering creating a Ghost model derivative, according to Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes.
Mueller-Oetvoes told Bloomberg news network, “I’m quite confident that we’re going to see a Ghost derivative to come.” He added that there is still “a lot of potential in the market” for a more basic Rolls-Royce.
A company spokesman said: "We are just taking a measure of our customers' needs at the moment. Inevitably with a model like the Ghost there is plenty of potential for it to be developed.
"In terms of seeing a production model in 2011, 2012, 2013, it is unlikely," he added. "There are no firm plans as yet."
Rolls-Royce announced in February of this year that it would be experimenting with a series of Ghost concept cars, or 'experimental cars' as the company traditionally calls them, but there was no clear indication they would ever see production.
A coupé and cabriolet were tipped to be joining the new Ghost saloon and the concept versions would be produced in order to "gauge customer demand".
Rolls-Royce chairman Ian Robertson said at the time the company wouldn’t necessarily stick to the Ghost name for all variants, as it has with the Phantom family.
