Rolls Royce Ghost Is A Dream Driver
Hard on the comeback trail under BMW ownership in 2003 the grandiose Rolls Royce Phantom VII still begged the question “Will I need a chauffeur?”
Like the 2013 Rolls Royce Wraith two-door coupe, the nearly $400,000 four door Ghost is tailored as a personal driver.
The bi-turbo 6.6-liter 563 horsepower V12 makes it a posh rocket unstoppable on the long straight shot of the AC Expressway. This Roller with a $44K Henley Inspiration two-tone white over silver paint job, with playful orange pinstriping, is a stunning!
The vast expanse of the hood is imposing as the Ghost measures 4 inches longer than a Ford F150 pickup. The 21-inch five-spoke alloy wheels are a sporty touch with stationary RR logos in the center mounted on ball bearing floating rims.
Inside the Ghost is a magical place of thick silky soft leather seating, luxurious lambswool carpeting and highly polished rich wood grains. The leather and wood styled dashboard is accented in bright Mandarin Orange leather.
These small touches highlight the nexus of the Rolls Royce tradition and the newest 21st century ride of celebrity, sports, business and tech geek royalty.
