2014 Rolls-Royce Ghost vs. Its Competition

2013 Rolls-Royce Ghost
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

The Ghosts only remaining direct competitor is the Bentley Continental Flying Spur sedan.

The Bentley offers comparable refinement, luxury and performance, but the Ghost may be the more exclusive choice as Bentley's sales increase.

The BMW 7-Series and Maserati Quattroporte both offer driver-centric, luxurious full-size sedan accommodations, but neither carry the Ghost's cachet.

They may be considered a little less ostentatious, though–flying under the radar with fewer points and stares.

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has been redesigned for 2014, and can be fitted with appointments similar to the BMW, or dressed all the way into S600 guise, which competes more easily with the Ghost.
