Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
You will by now understand that the Ghost is an exceptional car. The catch? Well, it is extremely expensive. Vastly more so than any of its rivals. But that will no doubt carry zero shock value to you, and anyone toying with the idea of Ghost ownership is unlikely to be deterred – or surprised – by either its sky-high list price or the huge running costs (that V12 engine brings an official fuel economy of just 18.6mpg, for example).
Of course, there’s lots of equipment as standard but few (if any) will resist the urge to dip into their pockets and take their pick from the seemingly endless options list. You can have TVs, a starlight rooflining (complete with shooting stars), massaging seats, even a backlit front grille. In fact, if you can think of something you’d like to add and have the financial means to pay for it, Rolls-Royce will do what they can to accommodate your whim.
