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?

This is no BMW, despite all that choice hardware cherry-picking. It is definitively more skewed to relaxed über-fast schlepping, but for once this is a Rolls that doesn't sneer if you want to make more serious progress. And no, it isn't perfect. Every time you close the door, you delve into a grab that is essentially a plastic cup, and the starter-button is made of plastic, warm to the touch and irritating to the hindbrain. But it imparts the Tao of Rolls to the point where it infects you with a kind of almost subliminal sense of satisfaction. It makes you feel good.
