Rolls-Royce Ghost Overview
Rolls-Royce was officially established as a company by Charles Rolls and Henry Royce in 1906, and the two would go on to make the company a powerhouse in the automobile and aviation industries alike. Founded over one hundred years ago in Manchester, England, these car making legends have created some of the finest luxury automobiles ever produced. Today, the Rolls-Royce name is synonymous with luxury, class, status and an almost impossibly smooth drive.
For the greater part of automotive history, Roll-Royce has been one of the most widely revered names in automotive manufacturing. As a testament to the company’s reliability and reputation, the British military employed Rolls-Royce in creating engines and vehicles for the both the land and the air for each world war. Now owned by German automotive geniuses BMW, Rolls-Royce still operates out of England.
Rolls-Royce Ghost Features
The Rolls-Royce Ghost, like its little brother the Wraith, is based on the body of the BMW 7 series. While the BMW 7 series is an incredible car in its own right, the classic composition and design of the Rolls-Royce Phantom is manufactured entirely by Rolls-Royce, making it the most authentic car currently produced by the company. For this reason, the 2014 Ghost has a base price of $303,300. While this may seem like a small fortune (and it is), it is under two thirds the price of the Phantom.
While it may not be the bona fide classic that the Phantom is, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is a spectacular car in its own right. The car began production in 2010, and a new model has been introduced every year. Not only does the Ghost offer every excessive luxury that has come to be expected when dealing with a Rolls-Royce manufactured automobile (including the fine leather- well, everything), but the car’s performance numbers are rather impressive as well.
