Visual changes include the car's striking colour scheme, 22-inch gold varnished wheels and sports performance tyres. The side skirts have also been revised, and a rear wing and integrated rear diffuser added.

Our Verdict

Rolls-Royce Ghost

The Rolls-Royce Ghost looks every inch a gorgeous, forward-thinking Rolls. But can it be as good as it looks?

I'm going to be really, really sick. Can't Rolls ban people from doing this to their cars? Rolls seemed to be gaining back taste and restraint when compared against the Bentleys (footballer's heaven) and Maybachs (no style or taste) of this world.

Shouldn't there be a law against this?

I like it - I'd buy one if I had the money. Then I'd have it subtly resprayed in all-over midnight blue, I'd also rework the front end to look less bling (bring the radiator grille bars forward to be flush with the front of the car, replace the LED lights with deeper halogen units), and stick on the stock 18" wheels in typical alloy wheel silver. I'd have a total sleeper of a car.

In this colour scheme, though? Not even a Premier League footballer would buy it. They'd take their Conti GTs to Mansory to get the same treatment instead. Wasn't Mansory behind that pink-and-black abortion of a Conti GT?

Gross. It really shows that many wealthy people have no taste. Tax the rich more, I say.

Except for one thing - from that pic, the rear/side view looks like a Rover 75, which is a good thing.

Wealthy peaople do have taste. This is for Lottery Winners and middle eastern oil barons.

Dear God ...... words fail me.

How will it ever ride like a Rolls Royce on those wheels? That aside, one has to ask oneself whether cars like this really have a place in the world we live in today. Such extreme extravagence will be seen by many as vulgar.

25 February 2010

Jesus! Do they really think the Ghost needs to be endowed with more performance? And those wheels???

My first thought when I read that the Ghost had a 0-60mph time of roughly 4.8 secs was "this car needs more pace"

What price this car will be seen within the next hip hop video?

A Rolls-Royce with sports exhausts.

I bet Charles and Henry didn't see that one coming.
