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?

But where the Ghost is special, where it really marks itself out, is when you come to a corner and realise that this isn't just a drag racer. Drive it, and you begin to understand Rolls' slightly confusing message that the Ghost is ‘dynamic' but not ‘sporty'. The steering - so light and swirly at slower speeds - weights up like it's bringing extra ganglia online to give more bandwidth for necessary sensation. You can feel what the front tyres are doing. And when all your senses are telling you that this big, long-bonneted, definitively mass-rich wedge of class divide is going to run wide with the nose at the very first hint of too much entry speed, it's a huge surprise to find the distant front end tucking up like a sporting saloon.
