With a price starting at around $250,000, the Rolls-Royce Ghost competes with the likes of the Bentley Continental Flying Spur and the Aston Martin Rapide. While the more expensive Phantom is offered in a full family of body styles, including a Coupe and 'Drophead Coupe' convertible, the Ghost is only offered as a sedan. The Ghost is one of the longest cars on the market, yet it can feel surprisingly nimble for such a large car; it doesn't feel much heavier than the BMW 7-Series or Mercedes-Benz S-Class in the corners, but its true heft translates to excellent road-holding on the highway. The exclusivity of the Rolls Royce nameplate is of course one of the biggest selling points--as is the 'bespoke' process of specifying and ordering one's own custom-tailored interior, trims and special features.
The Ghost isn't short on luxury, but Rolls-Royce has continued to add features to the ultra-luxury sedan. Better quality leather and wood enhance the interior, while the stereo now features speakers hidden in the headliner. A new feature allows owners to open the trunk with a wave of their foot underneath the rear bumper, which proves helpful when carrying objects requiring both hands. New forged alloy wheels are also available as an option on the 2013 Rolls-Royce Ghost.
The Rolls-Royce Ghost is powered by an impressive 6.6L twin-turbo V12, making 563 horsepower. It's mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and features a column-style shift lever. The engine makes its peak 575 pound-feet of torque at just 1,500 rpm, so the Ghost 'wafts' up to speed in classic English luxury-car fashion, albeit with even less noise in the cabin than in past Rolls-Royce models. Zero-to-60 mph acceleration takes just 4.7 seconds, while the top speed is an electronically limited 155 mph.
