The Top Gear car review:Rolls-Royce Ghost
Running costs and reliability
Even entry-level Rolls-Royces don’t come cheap, with the standard wheelbase Ghost starting quite a way north of £200k. The car we tested was £250k with options (not one of which was tinted glass).
And don’t forget, Rolls-Royce’s bespoke department is pretty much unrivalled when it comes to personalisation. They’ll paint your car in whatever colour you like, trim it with whatever materials you fancy and fit it with whatever features your money-addled mind can think up. If you can pay for it, Rolls will almost certainly do it. Is there such a thing as too much choice?
Fuel economy is officially quoted at 20.8mpg, but good luck with that. Running costs will be punitive however it’s driven, but you don’t care and neither does your driver. High demand means residual values are good, but really, if you’re in this sphere you’re not thinking about how much it’ll be worth when you replace it. Right?
