The new Rolls-Royce Ghost is a five-metre long, 2.5-tonne chunk of pure, undiluted luxury. Its 6.75-litre, twin-turbo V12 sits behind the iconic Rolls-Royce grille. Eleven years since the launch of the first Ghost, it features a new, Post Opulence design ethos.

Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The new Ghost is a masterclass when it comes to luxury and refinement. The attention to detail and depth of engineering are staggering, as is the price, even before you start adding on options. Despite the Ghost being the ‘most advanced’ model Rolls-Royce has ever made, its motive power remains delightfully old-fashioned without a hint of electrical assistance.

First Ghost in 11 years. Features new, Post Opulence design ethos. 6.75-litre, twin-turbo V12 behind the iconic grille. Four-wheel drive is present, as is four-wheel steering (5 degrees opposite to front lock under 40mph, and the same way over)

Reviewers from Cnet have found the following[***]:
The 2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost is one of the smoothest-driving cars I've ever tested. At 219 inches long, the Ghost is 8 inches longer than a Cullinan, despite the two having identical wheelbases. Headroom and legroom are generous for all passengers, and there isn't a bad seat in the house.

  • Gorgeous interior
  • Superb infotainment tech
  • Super-cool Starlight Headliner
  • Nothing in particular
