So we got a 2015 Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II
We’ve driven several cookie-cutter BMWs. We’ve tested many Bentleys. But we never brought home a Rolls-Royce. We were saving it for a very special occasion, whatever it might be. However, that special occasion never quite seemed to require actually borrowing a Rolls. So when they themselves called us up and offered us a second-gen Ghost, we simply took it. At least mini-Mash would get to ride in one, even if he won’t remember it when he grows up.
The Ghost is smaller than a Phantom, but is a big car in its own right, easier to drive around town and maybe even hustle a bit.
Inside, it’s fairly spacious, though not as much as you’d think. Even the boot is average at best, thanks to unseen space taken up by all sorts of machinery that support the in-cabin luxury gadgetry.
But that’s what a Rolls-Royce is all about — the in-cabin luxury. All the seats are as thick as sofas, with individual a/c controls for four passengers, tray-tables, chunky wood panelling, fluffy carpets, leather headliner, cold metal vents and what not.
Yes, getting the opportunity to pilot a Rolls-Royce is a special occasion in itself. More in the full review.
