Car of the Year 2022 - MotorEasy

If you’re the sort of person who’s more likely to shop for a superyacht than at a supermarket, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is the car to have waiting for you at the quay.

You’ll get to experience all of this from an interior that’s hugely spacious in standard form, or truly monstrous if you go for the stretched EWB model. And even next to the opulent standards set by rivals such as the Bentley Mulsanne, the materials and the fit and finish in the Ghost feel like a step up.

In short, it’s an exquisite car – to ride in, to drive or simply to be in the presence of.
