If you are looking for a luxury saloon, hiring a Rolls Royce Ghost is an ideal choice. Designed as a smaller, more measured car than the Phantom, this daily driver is everything you would expect from Rolls Royce, with impressive dependability, refinement and style.
The Ghost is powered by BMW’s latest direct injection 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12, producing 563 bhp and 575 lb ft. Despite the Ghosts large presence, this hefty Roller can make the sprint from zero-to-60 in just 4.7 seconds, and travel to an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. With power shifted via an eight-speed automatic transmission, the Ghost can be driven with the sort of enthusiasm normally reserved for a sports saloon. Engineered to grip the road at all times and fitted with advanced air-suspension, the Ghost gives a dynamic ride that is comfortable and smooth for passengers.
With classic Rolls Royce proportions including a 2:1 ratio of height of the body against height of the wheels, long bonnet and perpendicular nose, the Ghost feels natural and elegant. Its low height means you simply step onto it, rather than into it, and the rear hinged coach doors add an extra sense of occasion. The spacious and beautifully refined interior is adorned with large expanses of leather, natural wooden veneers and Blenheim carpets. The switches and instruments, known as "the jewellery" are exquisite, and BMW’s iDrive cabin control system adds to the fun. But what makes the Ghost so special is its sense of power, luxury and supreme comfort.
