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?

Still, it takes about two miles and four corners to realise that I'm completely and utterly wrong. This isn't a 7/8ths steel Phantom. It's a hybrid of Rolls vibe and utterly modern velocity. Go slow, and you get the kind of swooshy, silent ultra-absorbency that you expect from a big limo. Motorways are dispatched with a kind of über-GT disdain whose only real intrusion is a subdued blow of wind noise around the top of the A-pillars above 80mph. But press on, and the Ghost rolls out a whole panoply of counter-personality that'll leave you raising more than just an eyebrow.
