Overview

The 2017 Rolls-Royce Ghost — or, more appropriately, the Ghost II, to reflect the sedan’s recent updates — is the famous luxury brand’s entry-level model. It slots below the luxurious Phantom in Rolls-Royce’s growing lineup. A sporty coupe version, dubbed the Wraith, is also available, as is a new 2-door convertible model, called the Dawn.

Under the hood of the Ghost is a 563-horsepower 6.6-liter V12, which is based on the 6.0-liter V12 inside the BMW 750Li. An 8-speed automatic is standard and rear-wheel drive is the only drivetrain. Performance is surprisingly sporty, with Rolls-Royce noting 0-to-60 times in a spry 4.7 seconds.

As for standard features, the Ghost — in true Rolls-Royce style — hardly fails to disappoint. The sedan boasts power-closing doors, adaptive cruise control, a 16-speaker stereo, a navigation system, leather upholstery and automatic wipers. Options range from a panoramic sunroof and an automatic opening and closing trunk to extra cameras and an additional power package for better performance. For 2017, there’s also a new "Black Badge" special edition model with blacked-out cosmetics — including the famous "Spirit of Ecstasy" hood ornament.

So what does it all cost? The 2017 Rolls-Royce Ghost II starts around $290,000 with shipping — a huge step up over the 7 Series, the Mercedes S-Class, and other rivals. For some shoppers, it’s well worth the added expense, but we suspect you’d have to really love the Rolls-Royce brand name to justify the purchase.
