Now as a car writer, there are few car automakers that make you billow with passion. One such automaker is the Rolls Royce, what can I say, a car that is ridden by past/present aristocrats, celebrities and politicians, is rich with material. Rolls Royce has to be the epitome of luxury in the automotive industry, so the Wraith has to be the most luxurious coupe out there, though it does face competition from its own stable mate the Drophead coupe. Another challenger the Wraith has to face is the $ 100,000 cheaper Bentley Continental GT.
As with everything in life there are levels that you must respect. With that in mind just being rich isn’t enough to get something in life like the Phantom, for that you’ll have to be wealthy. As for the Ghost being rich is enough. I honestly don’t know what to make of the names that Rolls Royce chooses to brand its cars with. I mean Phantom, Ghost and Wraith seem more like names that are trying to scare us rather than impress us. However, the names aside Rolls Royce makes some if not the best luxury cars out there. On that note, meet the Ghost, which shares its platform with the BMW 7-Series, and is known internally as the RR04. The Rolls Royce Ghost is supposed to play second fiddle to the Phantom, but it could easily be the car that is at the pinnacle of automotive luxury.
Where to start with the Rolls Royce, which has a rich history of building ultimate luxury cars. This is the pinnacle of British auto-engineering. If you want to make a statement or if you are experiencing problems getting a date, show up in this and even the vainest of people will forget about taking their selfies. If the original godfather Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando) was still alive I can see him seated at the back left of this.
Let’s take a brief history class on the Rolls Royce Phantom. It was first made in 1925, making it 90 years old now that speaks longevity. The car has been driven by British Royalty and even by rock stars like John Lennon, amongst many other famous faces.
