Dream car of the week: Rolls-Royce Ghost

Every week we bring you a dream car – you know, the one you’d buy if you won the lottery.

THE ROLLS-ROYCE Ghost is an indulgent luxury machine that is best enjoyed from the rear seats whilst quaffing something bubbly and expensive.

However, should you get behind the wheel, it is a much more nimble drive than its massive size would have you believe.

In fact, the Ghost is often described as a ‘magic carpet ride’ due to its balance of refinement and dynamic ability.

The exterior of the car consists of large, sleek, uninterrupted surfaces that flow between sculpted horizontal lines. Basically, it’s a roadgoing yacht.

This particular 2010 model is finished in a black metallic paint and comes with a panoramic sunroof and rear ‘coach doors’.

Inside, the sumptuous cabin is full of soft black leather, fine wood trimming and metal finishes. The five seats are covered in quilted black leather with Alcantara headlining, seashell piping and embossed Rolls-Royce headrests.

There are side and rear view cameras with night vision, rear seat entertainment and up front, there is a head-up display. Being a luxury motor the Ghost comes with all the comfort features you could wish for and an extensive standard specification list.

This car has a full Rolls-Royce service history with the last service carried out at 29,000 miles by HR Owen.

The Ghost is armed with a twin-turbo 6.6-litre V12 petrol engine mated to a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to the rear wheels.

The engine produces 563hp with maximum torque of 780Nm. It does the 0-100km/h dash in about 5.0 seconds and goes on to a top speed of 250km/h or 155mph if you are keeping it old school.
