Rolls-Royce Ghost: super natural
Is the new Rolls-Royce Ghost an unearthly blend of waft and warp speed, or is it just a skinny Phantom?

Rolls-Royce's new Ghost will make you a better person. This is a surprising statement, probably pitched in from left-field, but it is nevertheless true. And it all starts with the steering wheel. For a visual bludgeon, the new Ghost has a surprisingly delicate wheel. An elegant, leather-wrapped arc that's probably only a finger-and-a-half wide, flanked by slim stalks, a ‘black panel' fascia and white dials as a backdrop. Now, not to delve too deeply into the psychology of ergonomics, but there's something about the way you hold a slender wheel that makes you less aggressive.
