Sentiment Score[*] 88%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The new Ghost is based on Rolls-Royce's latest aluminium chassis that it refers to as the ‘architecture of luxury' The 6.75-litre V12 twin-turbo develops 563bhp and 850Nm of torque. Ride quality and comfort are perhaps the Ghost's strongest qualities. It is difficult to think of a more relaxing and cosseting car to cover ground in.

Sentiment Score[*] 82%
Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following[***]:
There's a noticeably modern feel inside, with quality materials now centre stage rather than intricate details. This Ghost also gets all-digital dials with chrome surrounds, much like the Cullinan, while 100kg of soundproofing helps to push away the outside world. Four-wheel drive is present, as is four-wheel steering, and when combined with a punchy V12 this baby Rolls is more nimble and engaging than the last.

  • More fun to drive

  • More expensive than the competition

Sentiment Score[*] 91%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
The Rolls-Royce Ghost is one of the smoothest-driving cars I've ever tested. It's powered by a 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12, with 563 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. Because it shares a platform with the Cullinan, the Ghost now has all-wheel drive.

  • Gorgeous interior
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons[**]
  • Laggy infotainment tech
  • No Android Auto
