Introduction

What Car? says...

Rolls-Royce does appear to have a bit of an obsession with the supernatural – at least judging by its back catalogue of cars including the Wraith, Phantom, Spirit and Shadow. However, the most famous of them all was the Silver Ghost of 1906 – a name used to promote that car’s ethereal quietness.

The current Ghost is a far cry from the original, but part of the reason you might consider buying one is the promise of unparalleled serenity on the move – from behind the wheel or behind your driver. Or perhaps you wish to bask in the status of travelling in arguably the most famous marque in motoring, with that iconic Spirit of Ecstasy standing atop the front grille.

Either way, the Ghost is perceived as one of the best luxury cars you can buy. But is it in reality? Is it actually better than a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series or Bentley Flying Spur? Read on over the next few pages and we’ll let you know.
