The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class has a wide range of personalities--all of them superbly comfortably, some of them outrageously powerful.
