The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.4
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 BMW 7-Series is the Bavarian automaker's flagship model, and it cleverly wraps vast interior space, industry-leading tech, and the expected BMW fleet-footedness.
