The Top Gear car review:Rolls-Royce Ghost
Final thoughts and pick of the range
A marvellous thing, is the Ghost. But it’s not without flaws – chief among which is that however much care and attention you lavish on your spec, however much you spend, it will always be the ‘entry-level model’. One day someone will pull up alongside you in a Phantom, and you will practically combust with rage because you compromised.
This isn’t true of the Wraith/Dawn, because they have no Phantom-based equivalent (yet…), but however marvellous the Ghost is, it still has a bit of “I couldn’t afford a Phantom” about it.
And that’s unjust because it’s a good thing in its own right, and its marginally smaller dimensions and less ostentatious face/profile mean you might actually choose one over the bigger Rolls. We probably wouldn’t, but you might.
