The Rolls-Royce Ghost has been a fine addition to the British automaker’s luxurious lineup, and for the 2013 model year, Rolls-Royce added some subtle enhancements to its high-powered sedan.

The audio system for the 2013 Ghost gets an upgraded amplifier and ‘exciter’ speakers in the leather headliner, filling the cabin with more sound than before. The biggest upgrade to the 2013 model year is the addition of Comfort Access, that allows the opening of the trunk with just a simple foot gesture underneath the rear bumper. If the key is present, the trunk will open automatically after simply placing your foot under the very center of the rear of the car.

Completing the update is a new set of forged alloy wheels that are available as an option, alongside 44,000 different exterior paint colors that are available for those ordering bespoke Ghost models. Production will begin this fall, and the Ghost will continue to be powered by a 6.6-liter, V12 engine with 563 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque.
