The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
Audacious in its opulence, but oriented toward a generation of buyers more inclined to drive than to be driven, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is a remarkable step forward for the brand. The 2017 Bentley Flying Spur delivers opulence matched by few luxury sedans, with a handcrafted cabin and smooth, willing power from either its V-8 or W-12 engines.
