The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Rolls-Royce Ghost is a hyper-luxury conveyance for the person that has arrived, but doesn't mind driving themselves to the destination. The 2012 Bentley Continental doesn't stir the soul the way its two-door siblings do, but it's a powerful, smooth, refined, and eminently luxurious sedan.
