The Ghost's only direct competition among its alternative group is the Bentley Continental Flying Spur.
The Bentley offers similar levels of performance, luxury, and refinement, though as Bentley's sales continue to increase, the Ghost may be the slightly more exclusive choice.
Maserati's Quattroporte and BMW's 7-Series both offer luxurious, driver-centric full-size sedan accommodations, but neither present the regal, stately image or feel of the Ghost.
On the other hand, they can be perceived as markedly less pretentious, as well as flying more smoothly under the radar on the commute to work.
Mercedes-Benz's S Class fits somewhere between these two realms, straddling both.
From the lower-end models that are more comparable to the 7-Series, up through the far end of the S600 range, which approaches Rolls-Royce and Bentley in refinement, features and price, it may be the jack-of-all-trades.
