TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Rolls-Royce Ghost is massively impressive in its comfort, quietness, and serene driving behavior, as well as one of the most luxurious vehicles available today. With the addition of a beautiful, expressive new Coupe, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is no longer just the best sedan in the world; it's now a family of flagship models.
