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?

Time to point north out of the Goodwood factory and away from awkward questions. After all, I've already made encouraging noises about the exterior styling - think Phantom's hip, slightly rodded younger brother. Then I complemented the interior appointments - think Art Deco sprinkles on a heavily technological BMW architecture including the usual multifarious night and side-view cameras and beautiful satnav - all integrated into a kind of demure ‘It's there, but we don't want to shout' interior. Art-Techno, if you will. To then weigh in and tell Rolls employees that on first impressions I think their car is as chuckable as a Routemaster negotiating a waterbed might go down badly. And anyway we have an appointment tonight. And it's in Northumberland.
