Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

Think you can name a more luxurious car interior than the Ghost? You’ll struggle to come up with anything without a Rolls Royce badge, and even then the Ghost can go toe-to-toe with the luxury offered by the Cullinan and the Phantom.

Exquisite materials and expert craftsmanship are exhibited in every millimetre of the Ghost’s interior. Almost everything is wrapped in leather, carved from wood or milled from metal, and there are precious few man-made environments in which you’ll feel more special.

All the controls feel expensive in their operation, too. Plus, the infotainment system is fantastic. It’s based on BMW’s fantastic iDrive system but wears a carefully tailored Rolls-Royce disguise, and can be operated via the rotary dial controller on the centre console or through the big central touchscreen itself. It’s brilliantly simple to us, and packed with features. There’s also a crisp and clear instrument display that, although entirely digital, still carries the classy look of traditional analogue dials.

This is more than a story of cutting-edge technology and impeccable quality, though; the Ghost also offers sound ergonomics. There’s a terrific range of position adjustment for both the seat and steering wheel, and the forward visibility is pretty good, too. The driver’s over-the-shoulder view is rather hampered by the bulky rear pillars, but a 360deg camera comes as standard for guidance in close-quarters manoeuvring.

Even by the very high standards of today’s luxury car interiors, the Ghost feels a dramatic step up from the efforts from Bentley, Mercedes, Audi and BMW.
